Merlot Bella Collina Wedding

Every single wedding is special, and we can never get enough of them! Katelynn and Kyle’s Bella Collina wedding was just gorgeous, with beautiful pops of crimson and merlot throughout the ceremony and decor.

Blush by Brandee Gaar did a fabulous job – as always – keeping everything running smoothly to give Katelynn and Kyle the wedding of their dreams, while Collective by Concept was there every step of the way to capture it all for a lifetime.

Katelynn made the most stunning bride; everyone turned to look at her as she walked down the aisle, transfixed by her smile and beautiful gown. Her cascading bouquet had been lovingly crafted in a rich color palette of white, champagne, blush, and merlot wine.  

The bouquet popped against the ivory of Katelynn’s gown, full of lush hydrangea blooms, champagne and blush garden roses, merlot red ranunculus, deep burgundy dahlia, and hanging red amaranthus floral. To finish out the bouquet, we added some seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, Italian ruscus, and Italian pitt foliage.

For Katelynn’s bridesmaids, we created elegant, hand-tied bouquets of white hydrangea with blush garden roses, soft pink ranunculus, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. For a bit of softness, we added in some pink wax flowers.

Of course, our groom had to match his bride! For Kyle, we created a boutonniere with merlot-red ranunculus blooms, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. It was striking against his charcoal gray suit, making him so dashing!

Everyone admired the couple throughout the ceremony, cheering as Katelynn and Kyle were pronounced husband and wife. Soon after, it was time to kick off the party! Everything was perfectly in place for the indoor reception, and everyone was ready to get on the dance floor!

Katelynn and Kyle wanted their centerpieces to be stunning, but a little different, and we loved getting creative with the idea! We crafted their centerpieces with our rustic wrought iron chandeliers, using a mix of the same flowers used in Katelynn’s and the bridesmaids’ bouquets plus a bit of foliage for a hint of a rustic touch.

After hours of dancing the time away and making memories, the day came to a close, and soon, it was time to say goodbye to our couple. Congratulations again, Katelynn and Kyle!

Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate: Amanda and John

Amanda and John exchanged their vows at the gorgeous and elegant Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. Their fuchsia and navy fairy tale was flawlessly executed by Blush by Brandee Gaar with Leah Langley Photography and Unveiling Media filming every detail.




To coincide with the fuchsia and navy theme, we arranged bridal bouquets of hot and pale pink roses for the bridesmaids. For Amanda’s bouquet, we chose to complement her look with classical white roses as her bouquet. For the ceremony, we designed a stunning white rose cross floral arrangement to go with the Oathing Stone Ceremony they asked A Beautiful Ceremony to perform to wed them with.





As day turned to evening, the newlyweds and their guests walked into a safari fairy tale reception hall, complete with zebra linens from Over the Top, Inc. For a punch of color, we created floral centerpieces with hot pink, pale pink and purple accents.




Soundwave Entertainment had Amanda, John and their loved ones on the dance floor all night. What brought them back to their seats for a time, though, was the gorgeous 3-tiered white wedding cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes with rose buttercream detailing and adorned with an adorable elephant bridal topper.
