Classic White with Pops of Color: Meghan and Scott’s Bella Collina Wedding

Each and every couple is wonderful, but Meghan and Scott’s love is so pure and strong, it withstood a hurricane! Hurricane Matthew had us all wondering if this Bella Collina wedding would take place as scheduled, but the storm passed on, leaving beautiful weather behind!

Anna Christine Events planned the whole event with the utmost professionalism and care, resulting in an event that couldn’t have been more stunning. SNI Photography captured every unique and memorable moment, from the gorgeous sky to the shy smile on Meghan’s face as she walked down the aisle.

It was a classic white wedding, but we loved how we were able to incorporate some pops of color into the floral, like Meghan’s bouquet. Crafted with white hydrangea and open white and champagne garden roses, with merlot-wine ranunculus floral tucked in, along with wine and café au lait dahlia blooms throughout. We finished off the bouquet with some seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller, resulting in a variety of blooms that looked truly striking against our bride’s beautiful white gown.

Of course, we didn’t forget about our handsome groom! Scott opted for a classic look with a crisp black tuxedo, which we complemented with a boutonniere of ranunculus and dusty miller.

After a sweet, emotional ceremony, it was time to celebrate! This is a special couple, so, of course, their reception had to be just as special! The pure ivory décor at the reception was lovely, and it paired beautifully with the floral we created. Lush floral arrangements stood high on the tables, created with hydrangea, open roses in blush and champagne tones, more wine and café au lait dahlia, and burgundy snapdragons for an accent. We finished off the look with white dendrobium orchids that spilled over, with Italian Ruscus foliage and blooming seeded eucalyptus.

The cake designed by Party Flavors Custom Cakes was just magnificent! We haven’t seen a cake like it before, and just a little bit of added floral really made it stand out!

“Sweet as Tea” Southern wedding inspiration

 

At the beginning of this year, we were honored to be a part of a lovely styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The shoot was dubbed “Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be” and followed a theme of Southern glam. We showcased some stunning floral arrangements that we created for the theme, from bouquets to centerpieces, all designed to look as if they had been gathered from a Southern garden. We’re happy to share some of our favorite photos by Bumby Photography.

Our model bride and bride’s maid carried bouquets full of buttery yellow, soft pink, creamy white and pastel green floral. We combined a mix of traditionally glamorous flowers, like roses and tulips, with more casual textures. The arrangement of the bouquets had a somewhat gathered look, but they looked dressed up by wrapping the stems with lacy fabric. Our model groom had a coordinating boutonniere of yellow tulip buds and billy buttons.

In the ballroom, our reception decor was opulent. We were so happy to get our hands on Southern smilax, which we mixed with magnolia greenery to cascade down the white candelabras. At the base of the candelabras, we placed smaller arrangements that included hydrangea and garden roses.

We decorated the buffet, full of delicious Southern bites with a modern edge by Arthur’s Catering, and the cake table, with a gorgeous lace and ruffled cake by Cut the Cake, with small casual bouquets in milk glass vases. Later in the day, we even set up a table outside to showcase the venue’s stunning views of the lake.
