Bella Collina: “A Night of Wedding Bliss” Luxe Gala

Chalk board floral

We were truly honored to be a part of Bella Collina‘s recent event, “A Night of Wedding Bliss.” The evening was devoted to wedding luxury in all its facets. All of the wedding venues of Bella Collina were decked out by some of the finest wedding professionals in Central Florida. These photos by Concept Photography are just a taste of what we designed and doesn’t even showcase HALF of the beauty of the night that was created by our colleagues. Well done, everyone!

We worked with Blush by Brandee Gaar to outfit the small dining room with three very different looks on each of the long dining tables. Linens by Kirby Rental and decorative items by A Chair Affair really made our tables come to life.

On the central table, we created a dramatic floral table runner out of green hydrangea. Warm-toned hurricanes, lanterns, and votive holders glowed against the rich, glossy wooden table.

Another of our tables featured ornate metal lanterns and woven chargers for a garden feel. For our floral garland, we used a variety of pink and white blooms with plenty of greenery so that the look was natural and carefree.

Our third table was all about shimmer and shine. Glitter table runners set the stage for crystal candelabras, gold flatware, and glimmering chargers. Our floral pieces were tight and composed, with classic wedding favorites: white hydrangea and pink roses. A sweet rose was added as a special touch to each napkin.

Finally, we added the perfect floral touches to bring the naked cake by Two Sweets Bake Shop to life. Just like the rest of the room, we used pink floral and greenery that balanced between formal and casual.

Timacuan Golf Club: Kelly and Amir

 

Kelly and Amir had a beautiful wedding, starting with their ceremony atMarkham Woods Presbyterian Church and reception at Timacuan Golf Club. The couple decided to keep their decor simple, natural, and sophisticated. Their colors were white and green, with an accent of aqua bridesmaids’ dresses. White lace bridal gown

We created a gorgeous bouquet for Kelly, full of soft white blooms and touches of green ferns for a natural look. Her maids carried similar bouquets, with the addition of bunches of green berries and green hydrangeas. For the ceremony, we made white and green floral arrangements for the altar, adding white hydrangea and white delphiniums for texture.

At the reception, we highlighted the height of the room and the stunning chandeliers with our tall floral centerpieces. Glass vessels were topped with white roses and hydrangeas with romantic trailing greenery. Curly willow branches were added to the vases for texture and interest. We added a few pristine white rose blooms to the classic white, four-tier cake byParty Flavors Custom Cakes, and encircled the base of the cake with the bridesmaids’ bouquets (a great idea if you are on a budget).

Casa Feliz: Karina and Taylor

This offbeat couple swirled their love of music, zombies, and vintage style into a casual, October ceremony on the grounds of Casa Feliz. The wonderful planners at Sweet Pea Brides coordinated the event which was captured by The Hons Photography. The bride was stunning as she walked down the aisle in a Lazaro dress while a string quartet played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the balcony above. For the bride, we designed an arrangement of deep, rich colors that were carried over into the simple, yet elegant bouquets carried by her bridesmaids. They went were the perfect accessory to the bridesmaid’s classic dresses from Lindy Bop, and showcasing the couple’s laid back style, the groom and his groomsmen wore Converse sneakers. The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s aunt, who customized ending with “Until death or zombies do you part.”

Surrounded by votive candles and small globes of greenery, hot air balloon centerpieces provided by Basic Grey sat on aged, wooden crates, adding to the vintage feel of the courtyard reception. Red linen napkins and silver chairs added a pop of color to the lace covered tables.

To incorporate the bride’s love of zombies, she sought the help of UK artist, Phillip Haynes to create a one of a kind cake topper of the bride herself, the groom, and their kitties. The tiered wedding cake decorated by Publix Bakery combined their love of zombies and music by adding small pieces of broken records to the blood-splattered buttercream and an additional cake topper of Shaun of the Dead. The delicious cupcakes for the event were provided by Sweet! By Holly.

The couple’s goal to keep the ceremony itself short and sweet and devote as much time as possible to spending time with their friends and family was a flawless success, and the DJ, Jay Liquid, kept them dancing through the night with all of their favorite songs. He even made suggestions to match their style.

We were thrilled to be a part of Karina and Taylor’s special day. Adding to that thrill: this wedding was featured on Offbeat Bride! Thank you to everyone involved who made it possible.

Ansley and Rob had their wedding at the stunning Country Club of Orlando. The entire day was filled with romance from head to toe. Tickled Pink Brides coordinated the entire event which was captured by Sivan Photography and videographer Riant Films. The bride herself looked truly perfect, but of course, how could she not be when she was marrying the man of her dreams! LeJeune Hair and Makeup Artistry assisted in adding the finishing touches to her look along with her fantastic strapless gown from Calvet Couture.

Adding to the romantic effortless feel of the day were multiple formal elements ranging from the robes the girls got ready in all the way to the beautiful floral arrangements at the reception. The bride held an all white bouquet while her bridesmaids all held bouquets filled with the colors of white and green which carried throughout the day. Our floral designs even were carried through onto the cake by The Sugar Suite. From tall table centerpieces to even the smallest of buds, each petal looked perfect.

Bella Collina: Ali and Matt

Ali and Matt married on December 28, 2013 at the beautiful Bella Collina. The couple hired Ash Imagery, located in Pennsylvania where they currently live, to travel with them to Florida to celebrate with their 250 friends and family. With the help of Alison Watkins of Blush by Brandee Gaar, the day went off without a hitch!

Ali was the epitome of classic elegance. Her side-swept chignon and understated smoky eyes by hair and makeup artist Cristi Miranda made the most of her natural beauty. Her unique dress, by Rivini, was perfect for Florida winter. The sheer 3/4 sleeves provided all the warmth needed! We created her bouquet, and the complementary bride’s maids bouquets, to mimic the shapes and textures on Ali’s dress. The result was a mixed arrangement of white, green, and warm brown flowers and plants. How otherworldly and yet so natural!

The decor at the reception carried the same white and green color palette and all “natural elegance” feel. We used a variety of white floral accented by vibrant greenery on top of the rustic wooden tables. Lanterns, tall pillars candles, and votive candles in a variety of metallic holders provided romantic ambiance. Party Flavors created a simply sweet three-tier cake which sat amongst a huge dessert buffet provided by Two Sweets Bake Shop.
