Ritz Carlton Orlando: Julie and David

When he proposed under the 4th of July fireworks, David and Julie both knew they wanted to incorporate that night into their wedding day. As the sunset overlooked the water at Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, the couple exchanged vows and said “I Do.” Blush by Brandee Gaar  planned a spectacular event accented by navy blue, orange, and silver, and Kristen Weaver Photography captured the entire soiree from sun up, to sun down.

Fourth of July Wedding, Summer Bridal Bouquet

We loved creating a bridal bouquet that popped with color against Julie’s white, flowing gown. We mixed peach and pink roses with orange lilies, and added fresh succulents for a modern feel. For the bridesmaid we kept it classic with all white bouquets of roses, hydrangeas and mini succulents. The outdoor ceremony was magical! We loved how the center aisle, scattered in peach and cream rose petals, led the way to her groom at the front of the alter. After their first kiss as husband and wife, a showering of fireworks lit up the night’s sky over the lake–just as it did on their proposal night.

Chalk Shop created a beautiful mirrored sign etching out the night’s events. The mood inside the reception was set to party. Cafe lights from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting and Design were strung across the ceiling while silver plated tree centerpieces took the spotlight. We loved incorporating arrangements and clusters of orange roses and lilies through the branches. And because we leave no stone unturned, the bottom was covered in a layer of moss and finished with frosted candle votives and succulent buds. The party raged on into the evening as The Leonard Brothers cranked out the tunes and guests danced the night away.

Close friends and family were treated to an intimate evening affair designed by wedding planner RW Events, LLC. From the ceremony to the reception, the décor dazzled in tones of champagne and gold, a salute to elegant, chic style.

Kylie and Earlie chose a nearly all white floral color palette, bringing a pure and luxurious inspiration to the celebration. The romantic ambiance was completed with varying height arrangements of lush hydrangeas, orchids, and calla lilly’s.

The bride and groom’s sweetheart table was a showstopper in and of itself. A freestanding floral archway acted as a backdrop for the happy couple, with peach roses mixed among the white blooms, adding a soft sprinkle of soft color.

The Mezz: Emily and Max

The premiere A-List event this past January was Emily and Max’s wedding at The Abbey OrlandoArtful Events was on hand to make sure their special production went off without a hitch with Liga Photography taking up the roll of “the paparazzi” for the celebration. From the dramatic flair to the cinema overhang, the couple’s love of films was the theme of the day.

When it came to the floral arrangements, we went with white roses and with black accents for the bridesmaids’ bouquets and a large bouquet of white roses for the bride. It added simplicity, complementing the classical feel of their wedding.

Once the star couple sealed their vows with a kiss, the production moved to the reception hosted at The Mezz Orlando. The lighting effects, courtesy of Get Lit Productions, bathed our centerpieces of white roses orchids in a dramatic light, the candlelight on the reception tables adding to the effect. Emily and Max danced the night away with their loved ones to the musical talents of A-List Entertainment with Arthur’s Catering delivering excellent service and food to the hungry patrons. The leading act of the reception was their 4 tiered steam-punk wedding cake, topped with an adorable geometric representation of the couple, created by the talented team at Bake Me A Cake Pastry Shop.

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.

The accent colors for the day were tones of peach, coral and orange. We created a coral rose boutonniere for Dave, adding succulent petals to coordinate with his bride’s bouquet. Julia’s bouquet was comprised mostly of a variety of roses in shades from blush pink to peach to coral. Bold orange lilies and green succulents provided contrast and added a modern accent.

For Julia’s bridesmaids, we kept the types of flowers similar to those in her bridal bouquet. To create a sophisticated look against their dark navy dresses, the roses and hydrangea were all shades of cream and white and tinges with soft green.

Julia and Dave’s ceremony took place outdoors at sunset. The aisle was lined with vessels of rose petals topped with pillar candles, and a beautiful bridal aisle was created with more peach and coral rose petals. The couple timed their vows perfectly so that fireworks went off right afterwards!
