Omni Resort Champions Gate: Marianne and David

We never get tired of seeing the beauty and love that surrounds a wedding day. Marianne and David wed at Omni Resort at Champions Gate surrounded by the love of family and friends. Blush by Brandee Gaar provided the beauty and elegance by planning and designing this spectacular event. The details of the day were artfully captured by William Arthur Photography.

For the outdoor ceremony, the stunning bride walked down a rose petal covered aisle in a white, strapless lace gown. She carried a beautiful bouquet of dusty pink and cream roses, white tulips, hydrangeas, and ranunculus. Her groom waited for her in his United States Navy dress whites, under a canopy veiled in blush chiffon, and tied back with the same lush floral arrangements. To honor his service to our country, the ceremony was complete with a military salute.

Guests were welcomed into the reception with romantic ambiance by candlelight and strategic uplighting by Soundwave Entertainment. Navy blue linens draped over round tables, tucked inside a circle of gold Chiavari chairs. Golden, textured chargers from A Chair Affair brought the drama to the elegant affair. We loved how our centerpieces tied the entire tablescape together. Silver vasses of white tulips, roses and hydrangeas clustered amongst varying candelabras, creating a balance between regal simplicity and classic elegance.

We love when couples personalize their wedding day. What a fun idea for a dessert bar complete with everyone’s favorite sweet treats from Two Sweets Bake Shop. And if you had a hankering for a neat drink to close out the evening, the fully stocked scotch bar (yes, you read that correctly) was the perfect night cap. To top it off, Party Flavors Custom Cakes created simply stunning four-tier buttercream cake, dusted with edible gold detail.

Reunion Resort: Brenda and Peter

Brenda and Peter chose to visit Central Florida from Newfoundland for their destination wedding. The Reunion Resort was a gorgeous location with its tropical floral and palm trees for their special day with Andi Mans Photography in attendance capturing every picturesque moment.

For this classy destination wedding, we chose white floral arrangements for the ceremonial and reception centerpieces for their simplistic beauty. In terms of the bouquets, peach-toned roses popped against the royal blue and gray attire of the bridal party, coordinating the elegant feel of the celebration with its own twist. For the bridal bouquet, we paired white roses and lilies with white floral accents with the peach roses to give its own unique look to complement Brenda’s natural beauty.

As the ceremony drew to a close, the newly-minted newlyweds and their guests transitioned to the reception. Each of the tables was paired with our white floral centerpieces and royal blue linens, courtesy of BBJ Linen, with white chiavari chairs and decor to match from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. There was no shortage of entertainment with Scott Thompson from Thompson Entertainment on site, allowing Brenda and Peter to dance the night away with their loved ones in a luxurious paradise.

Casa Feliz: Lindsay and Chris

Lindsay and Chris were wed at the beautiful, historic Casa Feliz in Winter Park, Florida. Bash Event Design coordinated all the details, and Stephanie A. Smith Photography was there to photograph the entire celebration.

We created beautiful monochromatic bouquets for the bride and her maids. Lindsay carried an all-white, hand-wrapped bouquet packed full of roses and hydrangea. By not including greenery in the bouquet, the look was dense and rich. Silvery, soft gray dusty miller was used to soften the base of both the bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Similarly to Lindsay’s bouquet, we used a variety of floral all in one hue for the bridesmaids. Various shades of purple, ranging from lilac to plum, created a dramatic impression. We wrapped the bouquets in satiny bright purple ribbon.

Chris’s boutonniere, a pristine white rose bud with a base of dusty miller, matched his bride’s bouquet perfectly.

Tufts of white floral accented the chairs at their outdoor ceremony. Lindsay and Chris said their vows between two tall arrangements of white floral in white urns.

At the reception, the décor was simple and understated. Since the reception was after dark, the focus was on the lighting: soft candlelight on the tables and market lights strung overhead. Tufts of baby’s breath surrounded the lanterns and candles. The purple bridesmaids bouquets were placed in vases to provide a pop of color on the head table.
