Sometimes, things don’t go exactly as planned, but there’s always a silver lining! Lisa and Jay’s Luxurious Winter Wedding at Bella Collina was stunning, and it was beautiful to see two such loving souls come together!

All eyes were on Lisa, a vision in white as she walked down the aisle. Her bouquet stood out beautifully against her gown, created with blush hydrangea, white peony blooms, blush ranunculus, lissianthus, pink garden roses and, for a bit of contrast, black-eyed panda anemone!

Jay looked very handsome in his suit, a big smile on his face as he watched his bride walk towards him. To match Lisa’s beautiful bouquet, we created Jay and the groomsmens’ boutonnieres with ranunculus blooms and Italian ruscus foliage for a simple but elegant style.

Of course, we didn’t forget about the bridesmaids! The ladies looked lovely in long blush gowns, their bouquets a perfect complement with their soft, romantic tones and textures. Blush pink hydrangea and open champagne roses accented with lissianthus and ranunculus created unforgettable arrangements.

Shortly after the touching ceremony, it was time to celebrate! Unfortunately, a bit of rain drenched the outdoor reception area, but all of the amazing vendors came together to make sure that Lisa and Jay’s Luxurious Winter Wedding at Bella Collina would still be perfect!

Sure enough, the reception was a stunning affair. The tables were adorned with white-washed wooden vessels holding beautiful petite floral arrangements, all designed to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Royal blue linens on the tables and stylish black chairs completed the look, creating a totally unique yet timeless tablescape.

The dance floor had been soaked in the rain, but Jay didn’t let that stop him from dancing with his bride! Their first dance might not have gone exactly to plan, but it made for some beautiful memories and gorgeous photos.

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.

Lanterns - pink floral

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!

White wedding gown

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.

Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate: Lauren and Alex

Lauren and Alex tied the knot at Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate this past May. Their vision of a black and gold soiree came alive with the assistance of Blush by Brandee Gaar while The Hons Photography was behind the scenes capturing every gorgeous detail and priceless moment.

The bride and groom exuded elegance and class and we wanted their floral decor to reflect the ambiance they created. Their ceremony was simplistically decorated with two grand black vases featuring white floral centerpieces framing a black aisle lined with white rose petals. For the bridesmaids, we designed white floral bouquets with white gerbera daises with black centers and carnations. For Lauren, we created a beautiful white floral bouquet with white roses and carnations to complement her beauty and the floral decor.

Before walking into the reception ballroom, our white floral centerpieces with gold vases brought visual focus to the stunning seating chart table with white escort cards designed by Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio LLC. Once the newlyweds and their guests reached the ballroom, they were greeted with tables beautifully decorated with black linens accented with black and white striped table runners. Smaller white floral centerpieces in square black vases and small candles surrounded our grand cloud-like white floral centerpieces in elegant black vases. Mirror table numbers signs from Chalk Shop Events with gold beaded glass chargers provided by A Chair Affair completed the overall feel of sophistication and prestige.

Lauren and Alex added a touch of classical fun and whimsy with a delicious milk and cookie dessert bar. All of the delicious treats were baked with love by Two Sweets Bake Shop. To go with their nostalgic desserts,  Party Flavors Custom Cakes created two scrumptious cakes for the happy couple and all of their loved ones to enjoy. We provided white floral accents for their 4-tiered white wedding cake with black ribbon lining each tier while Alex’s groom’s cake showcased the rivalry between his beloved team, the University of Maryland Terrapins, and Lauren’s team of choice, the University of Miami Ibis.

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).
