Mary and Brian were high school sweethearts that found love again, tying the knot at Bella Collina this past March. Alison from Blush by Brandee Gaar was on hand to keep their special day running smoothly, with Andi Mans Photography taking all the shots and Love And Lustre Weddings filming their day from start to finish.

We chose bold and beautifully colored arrangements for Mary and Brian, with a vibrant display of hot pink, yellow and lavender roses with an assortment of complementing floral accents in the bridal bouquets and centerpieces. Mary’s cascading bouquet was the star of the show, adding on yellow and purple orchids to enhance it.

The Mezz: Emily and Max

The premiere A-List event this past January was Emily and Max’s wedding at The Abbey OrlandoArtful Events was on hand to make sure their special production went off without a hitch with Liga Photography taking up the roll of “the paparazzi” for the celebration. From the dramatic flair to the cinema overhang, the couple’s love of films was the theme of the day.

When it came to the floral arrangements, we went with white roses and with black accents for the bridesmaids’ bouquets and a large bouquet of white roses for the bride. It added simplicity, complementing the classical feel of their wedding.

Once the star couple sealed their vows with a kiss, the production moved to the reception hosted at The Mezz Orlando. The lighting effects, courtesy of Get Lit Productions, bathed our centerpieces of white roses orchids in a dramatic light, the candlelight on the reception tables adding to the effect. Emily and Max danced the night away with their loved ones to the musical talents of A-List Entertainment with Arthur’s Catering delivering excellent service and food to the hungry patrons. The leading act of the reception was their 4 tiered steam-punk wedding cake, topped with an adorable geometric representation of the couple, created by the talented team at Bake Me A Cake Pastry Shop.

Stetson Mansion: A Victorian Fairytale Styled Shoot

Last summer, we had the pleasure of being a part of another styled wedding shoot at The Stetson Mansion. This time, we stepped into a more magical Victorian era, where fairytales surely came true. The stunning architecture and quiet elegance of the mansion shone through in the photographs, courtesy of the talented Andi Mans Photography.

We wanted to enhance the magical feel of the theme, so we chose bright shades of pinks, purples, oranges, yellows and blues for our floral arrangements. A princess bride deserves the very best, from the beautiful gown from Solutions BridalRivini, to her classical hair piece by Untamed Petals, and that is precisely what was delivered.

The old-world ambiance not only inspired our floral spread, but also the gorgeous stained glass cake by Bliss Pastry. To complement the cake, Le Macaron French Pastries provided scrumptious macaroons in vibrant shades that matched our floral designs perfectly.

On the lawn of the mansion, Wish Vintage Rentals styled a whimsical vignette that flowed with the style on the mansion. Our bright bouquets added a pop of color to the setting, bringing the dream of a Victorian fairytale to life.

We used a soft palette for the floral arrangements to accent the classic feel of the ceremony. The bouquets for the bride and her bridesmaids were decorated with roses of white, blush and lavender, along with additional floral accents.

Once they exchanged vows, the celebration continued on to the reception in a beautifully lit, clear-top tent from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals.  The floral centerpieces reflected the bouquets, each table hosting vases full of soft whites and pinks.

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.

Congratulations to Renea and Chris! Their wedding at Reunion Resort was not only beautiful, but had plenty of fun personal touches! The planning extraordinaires at Blush by Brandee Gaar did a fabulous job producing the classy, Florida-themed affair. As you’ll see, the photos by Rhodes Studios really represent the joy of this couple’s big day.

For the ceremony, we decorated the aisle with pomanders of pastel floral and peachy-orange roses hanging from shepherds’ hooks. At the altar, the couple’s officiant from Sensational Ceremonies was flanked by two grand arrangements in white urns placed on white pedestals. The bride carried a romantic bouquet of white and pale pink roses, while her maids toted bouquets using the peach-orange roses seen throughout the floral decor.

At the reception, classically romantic decor was tempered by some fun touches! The gold chiavari chairs and beaded chargers from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals plus our groupings of soft orange and pastel floral gave the room a traditional look. Plenty of votive candles and soft peach lighting by Soundwave Entertainment provided the perfect ambiance. The Krispy Kreme doughnut favors and specialized kids’ table, however, really showed guests that the couple have a fun-loving, down-to-earth side. As a final touch of romance, we added a sweeping cascade of fresh roses to the three-tier wedding cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes. Just beautiful!
