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! Expert coordination by Blush by Brandee Gaar kept things going smoothly. There wasn’t a moment that was less than perfect, and all of it was captured by the skilled lens of Concept Photography.

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.

The event began with a sweet, beautiful ceremony, just perfect for the couple, with a chain of greenery and a few vintage lanterns leading the way to the hall. Jennifer and Richard both glowed with happiness as they said their I Do’s, Jennifer resplendent in a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline, while Richard cut an impressive figure his gray suit.

For Richard’s boutonniere, we kept it simple but impactful with white ranunculus, accented with dusty miller foliage. It was especially created to complement Jennifer’s bridal bouquet, which was lovingly crafted with café au lait dahlia blooms, white ranunculus, peach-toned garden roses and a finish of dusty miller foliage.

The reception was effortlessly glamorous, and we loved every little detail! The white-and-gold cake artfully designed by Party Flavors Custom Cakes featured a gold sparkle tier, topped with an elegant cake topper with “Mr & Mrs Escobar” in swirling gold script. Floral arrangements of more peach garden roses, surrounded by tiny candles, added a touch of warmth and easy beauty.

For this classy destination wedding, we chose white floral arrangements for the ceremonial and reception centerpieces for their simplistic beauty. In terms of the bouquets, peach-toned roses popped against the royal blue and gray attire of the bridal party, coordinating the elegant feel of the celebration with its own twist. For the bridal bouquet, we paired white roses and lilies with white floral accents with the peach roses to give its own unique look to complement Brenda’s natural beauty.
