The Ballroom at Church Street: Caitlin and Tyler

Caitlin and Tyler’s wedding was beautiful and romantic. Following the ceremony at Annunciation Catholic Church, Altamonte Springs, the celebration continued at Church Street Ballroom in downtown Orlando. The wedding was made possible through coordination and planning by Sweet Pea Brides, and was photographed by Love Light Lens.

The floral designs that we created for their big day included cream and blush pink roses and white hydrangeas with sweet sprigs of greenery. Caitlin’s bouquet was made entirely from roses, with one special bright red rose that she kept turned towards her heart.

Our centerpieces for the reception were understated and sweet. The white hydrangea and pale pink roses reflected the style of the bridesmaids’ bouquets. For added glamour, the arrangements were placed in shiny mercury glass containers.

Bella Collina: Amy and Brandon

Amy and Brandon, who live in Boston, had the ultimate fairytale wedding at Bella Collina. The couple was only able to come to Florida a couple of times before the wedding, so luckily they had the fantastic team planners at Blush by Brandee Gaar to help create the wedding of their dreams. Amy was inspired by classic love stories like Beauty and the Beast, and you can definitely tell in the floral and decor! The photographers from Concept Photography did a beautiful job taking these wedding moments and making them into artistic memories.

Pink and white bouquets

Amy’s bouquet was romantic: all roses in muted shades of cream, mauve, and pale blush pink. Near the wrapped stems, we used dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus for understated greenery. Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets that also included bright pink roses, which are seen throughout the ceremony and reception decor.

The arbor for their ceremony was absolutely breathtaking! Clusters of pink and cream roses with trailing greenery were strewn about the iron arbor, creating an illusion of a private menagerie-like space for the couple to say their vows. We lined the aisles with pale pink roses affixed to chairs, and also created a rose-covered surround for the romantic chandelier that hung from the arbor.

The reception took place outdoors. The Tuscan elegance of the venue was highlighted by rustic farm tables and French country chairs from A Chair Affair. We enhanced the Old-World, European undertones with antique-looking vessels and candelabras overflowing with pink and white roses.

“Sweet as Tea” Southern wedding inspiration

 

At the beginning of this year, we were honored to be a part of a lovely styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The shoot was dubbed “Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be” and followed a theme of Southern glam. We showcased some stunning floral arrangements that we created for the theme, from bouquets to centerpieces, all designed to look as if they had been gathered from a Southern garden. We’re happy to share some of our favorite photos by Bumby Photography.

Our model bride and bride’s maid carried bouquets full of buttery yellow, soft pink, creamy white and pastel green floral. We combined a mix of traditionally glamorous flowers, like roses and tulips, with more casual textures. The arrangement of the bouquets had a somewhat gathered look, but they looked dressed up by wrapping the stems with lacy fabric. Our model groom had a coordinating boutonniere of yellow tulip buds and billy buttons.

In the ballroom, our reception decor was opulent. We were so happy to get our hands on Southern smilax, which we mixed with magnolia greenery to cascade down the white candelabras. At the base of the candelabras, we placed smaller arrangements that included hydrangea and garden roses.

We decorated the buffet, full of delicious Southern bites with a modern edge by Arthur’s Catering, and the cake table, with a gorgeous lace and ruffled cake by Cut the Cake, with small casual bouquets in milk glass vases. Later in the day, we even set up a table outside to showcase the venue’s stunning views of the lake.

Winter Park Racquet Club: Erica and Matt

Earlier this year, Erica and Matt celebrated their big day at the Winter Park Racquet Club with the help of Tickled Pink Brides. The couple was quite stylish! The bride wore a sleek, strapless gown with tiered bustle by Oscar de la Renta from The Collection Bridal, and the groom looked handsome in his navy blue tux with black lapel. We think Andi Mans Photography did a great job capturing the couple’s easy, romantic feeling. We’re happy to share some of our favorite photos from this classy wedding.

Our floral work was classic and simple. For the ceremony, the aisle was lined with a generous amount of white rose petals. The bride carried a white rose bouquet that was a perfect combination of modern and traditional. In the groom’s lapel was a single, large white rose. For the reception, we used small arrangements along the long banquet tables. Each clear glass vase contained a single type of white flower, tulips or hydrangeas, accented by greenery. The couple’s sweetheart table included a larger arrangement of, of course, all white floral. Plenty of candlelight warmed the room as the sun set in the background. So romantic!
