Hilton Orlando: Donna and George

Who says life can’t be like a fairytale? Donna and George’s love story is just that. The couple first met when George was vacationing in Orlando, visiting friends and family, where he met Donna. The couple talked back and forth via email once George returned to Arizona, and the rest is history!

Donna and George’s wedding at the Hilton Orlando was sweet and beautiful without being over-the top; perfect for this cute couple. An Affair to Remember did an amazing job planning the whole event, as usual. Kristen Weaver Photography was there to capture each and every magical moment, from the couple’s first look on the stairs to everyone’s smiles as Donna walked down the aisle. Even the aisle had been adorned just for her entrance, with pure white petals strewn along the sides.

Donna made a picture-perfect bride as she happily said her I Do’s, carrying a unique bouquet crafted with her favorite color, purple. Her bridal bouquet was lovingly crafted with Picasso mini calla lily blooms, expressed sunflower blossoms, fragrant purple stock and purple lissianthus, with merlot dahlia, cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus for texture.

George beamed, proudly gazing at his bride as they exchanged their vows. After they were pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds and their guests kicked off the reception. The room glowed with iridescent purples, beautifully pairing with the décor and floral centerpieces atop the tables.

Isleworth Country Club: Betsy and Michael

A beautiful couple. A beautiful day. A beautiful wedding. Betsy and Michael reveled in a simply stunning wedding day at Isleworth Country Club. Perfectly planned and coordinated by Blush by Brandee Gaar, this affair boasted an effortlessly timeless design with a flair of rustic elegance. Kristen Weaver Photography captured every amazing detail of the couple’s special day.

Blush Reception Bridal BouquetWe created Betsy’s bountiful bridal bouquet with lush ivory peonies, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and dusty pink roses. Her bridesmaids brought a pop of color with vibrant, full peonies mixed in with pale roses, hydrangeas and  green berry bunches. The groom, Michael, donned a sharp boutonniere of crisp white ranunculus with green accents. For the ceremony, we tied satin bows to lush sashes of greenery from the church pews to add texture.

For the outdoor reception, we dressed rustic wooden farm tables from A Chair Affair, Inc. with a garland of greenery, interspersed with clusters of peonies.  We especially loved how the five-tier buttercream cake was decorated with a floral topper that sloped down each frosted layer–a treat for both senses of taste and sight! Betsy and Michael ended their fairytale wedding with a romantic dockside send-off into the night.

Omni Resort Champions Gate: Marianne and David

We never get tired of seeing the beauty and love that surrounds a wedding day. Marianne and David wed at Omni Resort at Champions Gate surrounded by the love of family and friends. Blush by Brandee Gaar provided the beauty and elegance by planning and designing this spectacular event. The details of the day were artfully captured by William Arthur Photography.

For the outdoor ceremony, the stunning bride walked down a rose petal covered aisle in a white, strapless lace gown. She carried a beautiful bouquet of dusty pink and cream roses, white tulips, hydrangeas, and ranunculus. Her groom waited for her in his United States Navy dress whites, under a canopy veiled in blush chiffon, and tied back with the same lush floral arrangements. To honor his service to our country, the ceremony was complete with a military salute.

Guests were welcomed into the reception with romantic ambiance by candlelight and strategic uplighting by Soundwave Entertainment. Navy blue linens draped over round tables, tucked inside a circle of gold Chiavari chairs. Golden, textured chargers from A Chair Affair brought the drama to the elegant affair. We loved how our centerpieces tied the entire tablescape together. Silver vasses of white tulips, roses and hydrangeas clustered amongst varying candelabras, creating a balance between regal simplicity and classic elegance.

We love when couples personalize their wedding day. What a fun idea for a dessert bar complete with everyone’s favorite sweet treats from Two Sweets Bake Shop. And if you had a hankering for a neat drink to close out the evening, the fully stocked scotch bar (yes, you read that correctly) was the perfect night cap. To top it off, Party Flavors Custom Cakes created simply stunning four-tier buttercream cake, dusted with edible gold detail.

Lauren’s bridal look was classic elegance, so we chose lavender and deep plum floral accents, including white and purple Picasso calla lilies, for her bridal bouquet. Her bridesmaids had complementing white floral bouquets with accents of greenery with matching boutonnieres for the gentlemen. Their flower girl and ring bearer had their very own floral accents with a white rose bouquet for their lovely princess and a white rose boutonniere for their sweet prince.

We loved creating the floral for this occasion! We complemented the natural vibe of their wedding with yellow sunflowers with white floral accents for the bridal party’s bouquets with matching boutonnieres for the gentleman. For Clare’s bouquet, we designed a white cascading bridal bouquet with accents of ivy and greenery. We even incorporated the white floral and ivy into a lush garland for their grand staircase. It made for a stunning visual masterpiece.

For the newlyweds, we draped their chairs with ivy garlands to accent customized “Mr. & Mrs.” chalkboard signs from Chalk Shop Events. All of these elements sat underneath a beautiful white tent from Sperry Tents Miami. The cherry on the top of an unforgettable day was the 5-tiered white buttercream wedding cake with white floral accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes with a dessert buffet and candy cart on the side from Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Ballroom at Church Street: Danielle and Lee

 

Danielle and Lee had a gorgeous wedding at the Ballroom at Church Street, planned by Nicole of Nicole Squared Events and photographed by Nelson of Brian Pepper Photography. We were so happy to contribute our floral designs for their special day!

We created a lush bridal bouquet packed full of white, cream and soft blush pink roses. As a special touch, Lee likes to include a note for the bride to read when her bouquet is delivered.

The bridesmaids carried coral-colored bouquets, which offset their cobalt blue dresses beautifully! The pinky-orange color is just brilliant. The groomsmen had complimenting boutonnieres.

We love how the stained glass windows of the historic ballroom made the perfect backdrop for the couple’s ceremony and formal photos.

The reception room was awash in warm lighting. The decor was opulent but classic and simple. Our tall centerpieces of white hydrangea and very lightly colored blush pink roses looked lovely when surrounded by candles and gold accents.

We also added blush pink roses to make their white wedding cake look extra special!

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.
