When he proposed under the 4th of July fireworks, David and Julie both knew they wanted to incorporate that night into their wedding day. As the sunset overlooked the water at Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, the couple exchanged vows and said “I Do.” Blush by Brandee Gaar planned a spectacular event accented by navy blue, orange, and silver, and Kristen Weaver Photography captured the entire soiree from sun up, to sun down.
We loved creating a bridal bouquet that popped with color against Julie’s white, flowing gown. We mixed peach and pink roses with orange lilies, and added fresh succulents for a modern feel. For the bridesmaid we kept it classic with all white bouquets of roses, hydrangeas and mini succulents. The outdoor ceremony was magical! We loved how the center aisle, scattered in peach and cream rose petals, led the way to her groom at the front of the alter. After their first kiss as husband and wife, a showering of fireworks lit up the night’s sky over the lake–just as it did on their proposal night.
Chalk Shop created a beautiful mirrored sign etching out the night’s events. The mood inside the reception was set to party. Cafe lights from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting and Design were strung across the ceiling while silver plated tree centerpieces took the spotlight. We loved incorporating arrangements and clusters of orange roses and lilies through the branches. And because we leave no stone unturned, the bottom was covered in a layer of moss and finished with frosted candle votives and succulent buds. The party raged on into the evening as The Leonard Brothers cranked out the tunes and guests danced the night away.
We had a blast working with Julie and David and all the vendors to create this one-of-a-kind, fun and enchanting wedding. Cheers to a lifetime of fireworks for the happy couple!
