A Lovely Outdoor Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes: Chelsea and Joshua

The weather in Florida is certainly unpredictable at times, but it was just perfect for Chelsea and Joshua’s outdoor wedding at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes! Expert coordination by Blush by Brandee Gaar kept things going smoothly. There wasn’t a moment that was less than perfect, and all of it was captured by the skilled lens of Concept Photography.

The ceremony was breathtaking! Chelsea made a lovely bride as she walked down the aisle, wearing the most brilliant smile and carrying the vibrant bouquet crafted just for her. Joshua, for his part, couldn’t keep the beam off of his face.

They wed below a floral arch crafted with hot pink garden roses, pink roses, and white hydrangeas, orchids, stock and ranunculus, to match the blooms used for Chelsea’s bouquet and the flower girls’ crowns.

Soon after our couple said their I Do’s, it was time to celebrate the start of their new life together! The outdoor reception was just as beautiful as the ceremony had been, with strings of lights lighting up the evening and illuminating the heavenly centerpieces on the tables, the hot pink blooms popping against the creamy white flowers.

There was a slight chill in the air, but there was more than enough love and excitement to keep everyone warm! Lauren was a picture-perfect bride as she waked down the aisle, with her hair cascading down her shoulders and a big smile on her face.

Her bouquet had been specifically designed to complement her dress, using flowers of the palest shades and varying textures. Café au lait dahlias, champagne roses, mother of pearl roses, and white hydrangeas all found their place in her bouquet.

Foliage garlands curled around pillars for a brilliant pop of green, adding just the right amount of color to the ceremony. But undoubtedly, our favorite part of the ceremony had to be the artist painting it all in real time! It was a unique but gorgeous touch!

Soon after the romantic ceremony, the party began! The reception on the lawn was simple, yet stunning! The décor was a mix of rustic and luxurious, with elements of gold resting on the mahogany tables from A Chair Affair. Our floral centerpieces stood tall on the tables, regal. All of the décor just paired together flawlessly, and just perfect for Lauren and Cody’s sweet and down-to-earth natures.

Cypress Grove Estate House: Julia and Matt

Outdoor weddings have their own unique charm, and Julia and Matt’s wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House was absolutely gorgeous! Planned and Designed by RW Events, the white and blush theme with pops of red and burgundy was definitely a hit!

The weather couldn’t have been more serene on the day of the wedding. Every photo captured by Best Photography came out beautifully, preserving every special moment for an eternity. Julia made a lovely bride, her fair hair twisted into a low updo, her gown simple, but elegant. All eyes were on her as she walked down the aisle, carrying her bouquet.

Her bouquet had been especially crafted with ranunculus floral, white O’Hara garden roses, and champagne roses, accented with dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus. For Matt, we created a matching boutonnière with white ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus.

Of course, we couldn’t forget the bridesmaids and groomsmen! Whereas Julia’s bouquet was made up of neutral whites and blush tones, her bridesmaids’ bouquets were created with vivid burgundy hydrangea, burgundy dahlia and ranunculus blooms, with champagne roses and accents or dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus. The resulting bouquets just popped against the bridesmaids’ blush gowns!

For the groomsmen’s boutonnières, we opted for ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus to match Matt’s own boutonnière, but swapped out the white for burgundy blooms that perfectly matched the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

After a sweet, romantic ceremony, it was time to celebrate the couple’s nuptials! The area had been decked out for the reception, with lots of pops of red and gold throughout the décor. Crimson cloth napkins rested atop shimmering gold chargers from A Chair Affair, complementing the lovingly-crafted centerpieces, created with burgundy and champagne blooms.

The evening was spent laughing, making memories, and indulging in the majestic cake created by The Sugar Suite. But, as with all things, it came to an end, and we said goodbye to Julia and Matt as they embarked on their next adventure together. Congratulations, Julia and Matt!

Blush and Gold at the Country Club of Orlando: Alexandra and Sam

You can never go wrong with a blush and gold wedding, and Alexandra and Sam’s wedding at the Country Club of Orlando is proof of that! Of course, Blush by Brandee Gaar’s brilliant planning must have also had something to do with the whole event turning out flawless!

The blush and gold tones created the perfect romantic vibe, and we had such a great time creating the floral; the pure creamy white blooms we used just contrasted and complemented the warmth of the blush and gold beautifully!

Alexandra looked like a heroine out of a fairytale as she walked down the aisle towards a grinning Sam, with a blush in her cheeks and her dark hair in a half-up, half-down style, so it cascaded down her shoulders and stood out against the white of her dress.

Her bridal bouquet had been lovingly crafted with white hydrangea blooms and white lissianthus floral, with white ranunculus blooms and beautiful white and champagne garden roses, all accented with seeded eucalyptus foliage, Italian ruscus and cascading tangerine vine. The result was a truly lovely and unique bouquet, just perfect for Alexandra!

The couple’s faces glowed with joy as they exchanged vows, and the party began almost as soon as the ceremony ended. The ceremony was lovely, to be sure, but the reception turned out to be a party to remember! The room was elegantly and flawlessly decorated, with plenty of hints of gold throughout, and lush floral centerpieces that towered atop the tables!

At the end of the day, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that this was a wedding that all of us would remember forever, but there truly was nothing more beautiful than seeing the smiles on our newlyweds’ faces and their joy at beginning the next chapter of their lives.

Bella Collina: Nick and Kristen

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. It’s the perfect way to describe Kristen and Nick’s wedding at Bella Collina. The planning and design of the classic white wedding were by none other than Alison Watkins of Blush by Brandee Gaar, and she did a marvelous job, as usual.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests took the party indoors for an awesome reception. Floral centerpieces adorned the tables, greenery lusciously draped across the sweetheart table, but the star of the show – other than the bride and groom, of course – was the cake. Created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes, the majestic five-tier confection stood tall, beautifully offset by the floral arrangements on each side. Classic and delicious!

Pink and Silver Wedding, Four Seasons Orlando

Four Seasons Orlando: Janessa and Steve

Every girl dreams of a wedding worthy of a royal, but only a few are lucky enough to have one, like Janessa and Steve’s wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World. The coordination by Abbey Gray of Blush by Brandee Gaar was flawless as usual, and the breathtaking event was photographed by Concept Photography.

The day began with an intimate ceremony, with beautiful, soft draping by Swag Decor and floral arrangements of white and pink along the aisle. Janessa stunned in a long, white princess gown by Solutions Bridal Designer House, perfectly complemented by the pastel bridal bouquet that we’d created with peonies, roses, ranunculus, and garden roses.

The couple wed below a chuppah that had been lovingly adorned with white phalaenopsis, hydrangea, roses, and pink garden roses, adding that perfect fairytale touch to the ceremony.
