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!

Green hydrangea runner

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.

Cypress Grove Estate House: Chiara and Danny

Chiara and Danny had an amazing, glamorous wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House. The bride was stunning…she not only had two wedding gowns, but two completely different wedding looks, including a change in hairstyle! WOW!

We were delighted to work with RW Events, LLC to create a romantic evening, with plenty of pink roses and sumptuous hydrangea and orchid arrangements. Please enjoy these beautiful photos by Sublime Studios!

Outdoor wedding ceremony

The outdoor ceremony took place overlooking the water, underneath the moss-covered cypress trees. Rather than choose the popular rustic look for their outdoor setting, Chiara and Danny went with all white and soft peachy pink. The gazebo was draped in sheer white drapes with a bunches of white floral used as tie-backs.

Chiavari chair accents - roses

Each of the white Chiavari chairs was accented by pink satin fabric on the seat and woven into the back. Along the aisle, we added petite rose bouquets wrapped in white satin. So sweet! Chiara carried a bouquet full of pink roses, and Danny wore a complimentary boutonniere.

At the reception, plenty of sparkling lights and chandeliers were hung underneath the clear tent. We even dangled strands of flowers overhead for an added element of fantasy!

For the guest tables, we alternated tall and low centerpieces of pink and white roses and white hydrangea. Along the taller centerpieces, we arranged classy glass candlesticks, and for the lower ones we also used smaller mercury glass votive holder. Plenty of pink linens and silver decor pieces made the space look special.

Cake cutting - white wedding cake

The cake fromThe Sugar Suite was outstanding! Five towering tiers, including a silver layer, featured sugar flowers and our fresh floral. The white bridesmaid bouquets were circled around the base of the cake stand. The entire look went perfectly with Chiara’s reception gown, which had a silver bodice.

What kind of wedding would it be if there were no elegant florals to add a sense of freshness to the decor? We provided all the flowers for Leslie and Aaron’s wedding day and they were all simply beautiful. Whether a it was a simple corsage or a bouquet of roses, each flower was blossomed and picture-perfect.
