Hilton Orlando: Donna and George

Who says life can’t be like a fairytale? Donna and George’s love story is just that. The couple first met when George was vacationing in Orlando, visiting friends and family, where he met Donna. The couple talked back and forth via email once George returned to Arizona, and the rest is history!

Donna and George’s wedding at the Hilton Orlando was sweet and beautiful without being over-the top; perfect for this cute couple. An Affair to Remember did an amazing job planning the whole event, as usual. Kristen Weaver Photography was there to capture each and every magical moment, from the couple’s first look on the stairs to everyone’s smiles as Donna walked down the aisle. Even the aisle had been adorned just for her entrance, with pure white petals strewn along the sides.

Donna made a picture-perfect bride as she happily said her I Do’s, carrying a unique bouquet crafted with her favorite color, purple. Her bridal bouquet was lovingly crafted with Picasso mini calla lily blooms, expressed sunflower blossoms, fragrant purple stock and purple lissianthus, with merlot dahlia, cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus for texture.

George beamed, proudly gazing at his bride as they exchanged their vows. After they were pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds and their guests kicked off the reception. The room glowed with iridescent purples, beautifully pairing with the décor and floral centerpieces atop the tables.

Ritz-Carlton: Dana and Henry

 

Dana and Henry married at the The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes last month, and their wedding was an absolute stunner! Right on trend, the couple featured shades of rich purple as the focus of their decor. The planning team at An Affair to Remember did a great job pulling together all of the details, and Kristen Weaver Photography caught it all on film.

The ceremony space was draped in a romantic lilac fabric, courtesy of Swag Decor. Our tall white arrangements were placed in white urns on top of white columns with soft purple rose petals at their bases. A mirrored table from A Chair Affair added a glam touch. Dana’s bouquet was all purple, so we decided to contrast her bridesmaids’ bouquets to be all white flowers. Purple floral against Dana beautiful white gown and white floral against the bridesmaids’ deep purple dresses were the perfect pairings!

The reception was completely transformed into a regal purple ballroom, complete with silver and plum linens, silver chiavari chairs by A Chair Affair, stunning purple uplighting from Soundwave Entertainment, and our gorgeous white and purple centerpieces. We used white hydrangea, purple orchids, and touches of fern fronds for a romantic and modern look.

We created the white and mauve bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, along with the matching white, pink, and mauve flower arrangements for the reception. We loved how the mauve roses and flower crowns matched the bridesmaids’ dresses perfectly! For the reception, we used small gold bowls and vases for the flowers to complement the wedding décor.

Photographer Kristen Weaver captured every detail of the couple’s special day. The Ritz Carlton provided a beautiful outdoor ceremony space, the tall white columns accenting the many white roses found along the aisle and in the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets. With a simple and elegant ceremony space, family took center stage as Kelsey, Bryan, and his two sons joined their new family with a sand ceremony.

The white flowers carried into the sophisticated reception, popping against the purple uplighting provided by Soundwave Entertainment. Our centerpieces sparkled with hanging crystals and silver vases, adding some brightness to the nighttime reception. The refined decorations didn’t stop the guests from having fun, though! It was a real party with a fun photo booth from Photo Booth Rocks and lots of dancing!
