Maitland Art Center: Style Me Pretty Feature

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Father and BrideWe are thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty for one the most unique weddings we’ve played a part in. This wedding ceremony took place at the Maitland Art Center in Maitland, Florida and was followed by an intimate reception at 310 Lakeside Restaurant. The bride and groom celebrated their marriage with family and friends from across the world. They had guests from Japan, South Africa, Europe and Australia. Pietri Photography captured beautiful photographs from the day.Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal Gown

We love that our bride chose to add gardenias to her bouquet to keep with family tradition–how special! Her David’s Bridal gown was simply gorgeous, and the texture of the lace looked lovely with the bold shapes of her florals. The traditional Catholic ceremony took place in the roofless chapel at the Maitland Art Center. Instead of communion the priest gave a homily which compared a pineapple to the sweetness of marriage. Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Ceremony

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, First KissCan you believe this entire wedding cost under $10,000? The bride’s mother-in-law brought table linens from South Africa, and Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals provided chair rentals for the day. Sprinkles Custom Cakes designed a traditional South African fruit cake for the reception. DJ Scott Thompson of Thompson Entertainment provided entertainment for the reception–not to mention a surprise visit from Elvis! Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bouquet
