The Mezz: Emily and Max

The premiere A-List event this past January was Emily and Max’s wedding at The Abbey OrlandoArtful Events was on hand to make sure their special production went off without a hitch with Liga Photography taking up the roll of “the paparazzi” for the celebration. From the dramatic flair to the cinema overhang, the couple’s love of films was the theme of the day.



When it came to the floral arrangements, we went with white roses and with black accents for the bridesmaids’ bouquets and a large bouquet of white roses for the bride. It added simplicity, complementing the classical feel of their wedding.




Once the star couple sealed their vows with a kiss, the production moved to the reception hosted at The Mezz Orlando. The lighting effects, courtesy of Get Lit Productions, bathed our centerpieces of white roses orchids in a dramatic light, the candlelight on the reception tables adding to the effect. Emily and Max danced the night away with their loved ones to the musical talents of A-List Entertainment with Arthur’s Catering delivering excellent service and food to the hungry patrons. The leading act of the reception was their 4 tiered steam-punk wedding cake, topped with an adorable geometric representation of the couple, created by the talented team at Bake Me A Cake Pastry Shop.






Even though their premiere drew to a close, it was just the beginning to the cinematic production of the rest of their lives together. We congratulate you, Emily and Max, and wish that the happiness you felt grows and follows you throughout your lives together. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the backstage hands that made this event possible:

Stetson Mansion: A Victorian Fairytale Styled Shoot

Last summer, we had the pleasure of being a part of another styled wedding shoot at The Stetson Mansion. This time, we stepped into a more magical Victorian era, where fairytales surely came true. The stunning architecture and quiet elegance of the mansion shone through in the photographs, courtesy of the talented Andi Mans Photography.

We wanted to enhance the magical feel of the theme, so we chose bright shades of pinks, purples, oranges, yellows and blues for our floral arrangements. A princess bride deserves the very best, from the beautiful gown from Solutions BridalRivini, to her classical hair piece by Untamed Petals, and that is precisely what was delivered.

The old-world ambiance not only inspired our floral spread, but also the gorgeous stained glass cake by Bliss Pastry. To complement the cake, Le Macaron French Pastries provided scrumptious macaroons in vibrant shades that matched our floral designs perfectly.

On the lawn of the mansion, Wish Vintage Rentals styled a whimsical vignette that flowed with the style on the mansion. Our bright bouquets added a pop of color to the setting, bringing the dream of a Victorian fairytale to life.

Casa Feliz: Jenn and Teddy

Casa Feliz recently hosted a wedding full of elegance and charm for Jenn and Teddy. The historic architecture gave plenty of inspiration to Elizabeth from Blush by Brandee Gaar to turn their special day into the ultimate romantic destination. Vine and Light Photography was there at every turn, capturing the beauty of the day for the couple.




We used a soft palette for the floral arrangements to accent the classic feel of the ceremony. The bouquets for the bride and her bridesmaids were decorated with roses of white, blush and lavender, along with additional floral accents.




Once they exchanged vows, the celebration continued on to the reception in a beautifully lit, clear-top tent from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals.  The floral centerpieces reflected the bouquets, each table hosting vases full of soft whites and pinks. Jenn and Teddy, along with their guests, were kept full and happy in part to the catering services of Arthur’s Catering, with the beautiful cake and desserts provided by Two Sweets Bake Shop.




Congratulations to you, Jenn and Teddy, for a beautiful wedding and the beginnings of a long and happy life together! This wedding wouldn’t have been possible without the help from our fellow venders:
