The Ultimate Indian Fusion Wedding: Karina and Sachin

Happy couples make for happy weddings, and one of the most joyous occasions for us was Karina and Sachin’s special day at The Hilton Oceanfront Resort! Expertly planned by Blush by Brandee Gaar, this Indian fusion wedding went off without a hitch, with every unique detail flawlessly captured by Nate and Lori.

For their white wedding, Karina was a vision as she walked down the aisle in a elaborately embroidered and bejeweled gown, reminiscent of classic Indian bridal dresses cut in a European style. Sachin, for his part, looked dashing in a crisp suit.

We love all our weddings, but Indian weddings are inevitably the most fun when it comes to designing floral! We got to experiment with different colors and textures, creating bouquets with blush hydrangeas, pink roses, purple roses, white roses, lavender orchids, lavender lisianthus, and lavender stock for Karina and her bridesmaids.

The classic Indian portion of their wedding was purely traditional, with lots of reds and vivid colors throughout, so of course, we had to incorporate some red into the floral! We used red roses for the centerpieces, along with some pink and white blooms for colorful and balanced arrangements.

Our bride and groom looked regal in their traditional Indian attire, Sachin in a gold and red sherwani and Karina in a vivid crimson gown hemmed with gold. The love and joy was almost palpable in the air throughout the ceremonies, every moment a testament of two families coming together.

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!

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.

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.

The reception decor certainly brought the glamour and elegance. Table tops dazzled with sequined runners, gold dusted votive candles, and gold rimmed stemware at each place setting. Dogwood Blossom Stationery and Invitation Studio designed custom menus to adorn the glitter glass chargers. We were happy to help decorate the beautiful buttercream wedding cake with descending fresh white flower buds.

Priscille and Putman chose a reception themed around the pink and white palette reflecting spring blooms. Hints of gold on votive candles, dinnerware, and the finish on the upholstered dining chairs added a touch of elegance throughout the space. Everywhere guests looked, their eyes fell upon peach ranunculus, pure white tulips, and shades of pink roses and peonies. The lush arrangements filled the reception with a lavish and lush ambiance. Priscille even donned a delicate flower crown giving her an ethereal glow.

And the larger than life flower wall designed by Raining Roses Productions, creating a lush backdrop for the head table was truly an amazing element! The stunning five-tier brushed rose gold cake on display in front of it, was another spectacular work of art from Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

Cypress Grove Estate House: Mackenzie and Beau

Mackenzie and Beau began their next great adventure together this past March at the Cypress Grove Estate House. Their vision of a sophisticated rustic wedding was achieved with the assistance of Blush by Brandee Gaar with their long-time photographer and friend The Canovas Photography capturing every priceless moment.

Mackenzie was inspired by her and Beau’s travels to Ireland and Alaska, and wanted to incorporate the natural beauty and earthy tones of those locations. She envisioned a navy blue theme with hints of blue, white, green and brown tones, so we created bouquets of white roses and white muscari for the bridesmaids’ bouquets and elegant blue muscari for Mackenzie’s bouquet, with complementing boutonnieres for Beau and his groomsmen. For the ceremony floral, we created a variety of arrangements with powder blue floral surrounded by white accents and greenery.

Our powder blue and white floral centerpieces surrounded rustic lanterns on each reception table, along with French country chairs provided by A Chair Affair and personalized table numbers designed by Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio, LLC reflecting the destinations the couple have visited together. For the main course, Mackenzie, Beau and their guests enjoyed the catering talents of Big City Catering ending with gorgeously designed wedding cupcakes by Sweet by Holly and an assorted dessert bar created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

What made Mackenzie and Beau’s celebration unique and over-the-top was the entertainment. Not only did Mackenzie plan a choreographed father-daughter dance, but she had another ace up her sleeve: a fireworks show! She and her husband conferred with Messina Productions about not only musical entertainment, but a nighttime show as well. They pulled it off flawlessly, with the newlyweds dancing together to “Fireworks” by Katy Perry. It was the perfect end to an unforgettable day.
