An Elegant and Rustic Wedding: Lauren and Cody

The best weddings are those of the best couples, and Lauren and Cody are just the sweetest! Their wedding at Bella Collina was absolutely stunning, and all the credit for making their dream wedding come to life goes to the ever-talented Blush by Brandee Gaar. Every detail was designed to create the ultimate luxurious experience,  with each moment brilliantly captured by Kristen Weaver Photography.

There was a slight chill in the air, but there was more than enough love and excitement to keep everyone warm! Lauren was a picture-perfect bride as she waked down the aisle, with her hair cascading down her shoulders and a big smile on her face.

Her bouquet had been specifically designed to complement her dress, using flowers of the palest shades and varying textures. Café au lait dahlias, champagne roses, mother of pearl roses, and white hydrangeas all found their place in her bouquet.

Foliage garlands curled around pillars for a brilliant pop of green, adding just the right amount of color to the ceremony. But undoubtedly, our favorite part of the ceremony had to be the artist painting it all in real time! It was a unique but gorgeous touch!

Soon after the romantic ceremony, the party began! The reception on the lawn was simple, yet stunning! The décor was a mix of rustic and luxurious, with elements of gold resting on the mahogany tables from A Chair Affair. Our floral centerpieces stood tall on the tables, regal. All of the décor just paired together flawlessly, and just perfect for Lauren and Cody’s sweet and down-to-earth natures.

As with all good things, our couple’s wedding day came to an end, but the memories that were made that day live on. Congratulations, Lauren and Cody! Team James wishes you all the best; it was a pleasure to design your wedding floral!

Ritz Carlton: Elizabeth and Boyd

We took a trip down to Ferngully for Elizabeth and Boyd’s wedding at the Ritz Carlton Orlando, and we loved every moment of it! Lisa Stoner Events went above and beyond for the planning of this event, and it showed in every detail, each beautifully captured by Jensen Larson Photography.

It’s been a long time since we’ve had this much fun with the flowers at a wedding. To go along with the Ferngully theme, we kept the flowers big, plentiful, and colorful. Boyd looked extremely handsome, choosing to complement his navy tuxedo with an orchid boutonniere that matched Elizabeth’s bouquet. Elizabeth looked gorgeous and free, the purple flowers in her curls and the colorful orchids in her bouquet striking against her pure white strapless gown and long veil. The black tuxedos and blush gowns donned by the groomsmen and bridesmaids were perfect for balancing out the pops of color throughout the florals and décor.

The flower girls carried unique floral baskets, carefully crafted to go with the theme. Grand lanterns adorned the aisles as they walked past, providing an aura of earthy warmth. Elizabeth and Boyd said their I Do’s beneath a lush floral arch, surrounded by their loved ones and tiny lights. The venue glowed; the lighting by FyerFly Productions had a big part in bringing Ferngully to life.

Classic White Wedding, Outdoor Ceremony

Bella Collina: Nick and Kristen

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. It’s the perfect way to describe Kristen and Nick’s wedding at Bella Collina. The planning and design of the classic white wedding were by none other than Alison Watkins of Blush by Brandee Gaar, and she did a marvelous job, as usual.

The ceremony was simple, classic, and elegant. The couple made their vows below a beautifully crafted floral arch, Kristen looking every bit the beautiful, blushing bride. Her bridal bouquet, created with blush and ivory roses, was the perfect complement to Nick’s white rose boutonniere.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests took the party indoors for an awesome reception. Floral centerpieces adorned the tables, greenery lusciously draped across the sweetheart table, but the star of the show – other than the bride and groom, of course – was the cake. Created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes, the majestic five-tier confection stood tall, beautifully offset by the floral arrangements on each side. Classic and delicious!

Pink and Silver Wedding, Four Seasons Orlando

Four Seasons Orlando: Janessa and Steve

Every girl dreams of a wedding worthy of a royal, but only a few are lucky enough to have one, like Janessa and Steve’s wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World. The coordination by Abbey Gray of Blush by Brandee Gaar was flawless as usual, and the breathtaking event was photographed by Concept Photography.

The day began with an intimate ceremony, with beautiful, soft draping by Swag Decor and floral arrangements of white and pink along the aisle. Janessa stunned in a long, white princess gown by Solutions Bridal Designer House, perfectly complemented by the pastel bridal bouquet that we’d created with peonies, roses, ranunculus, and garden roses.

The couple wed below a chuppah that had been lovingly adorned with white phalaenopsis, hydrangea, roses, and pink garden roses, adding that perfect fairytale touch to the ceremony.

Reunion Resort: Lynsey and Craig

In the case of Lynsey and Craig’s Reunion Resort wedding, all that glitters is gold. The couple enlisted expert wedding planner Blush by Brandee Gaar to bring to life the black, gold, and blush inspired wedding.  Bumby Photography masterfully captured all the glamorous details of this stunning event.

The outdoor ceremony started with a soft, romantic palette for the exchanging of vows. Bride Lynsey, carried a lush bouquet of white and blush tone ranunculus, hydrangeas, garden roses, dahlias, and anemones. The brick-paved aisle was lined with delicate rose petals, as bunches of white hydrangeas tied with black satin ribbon dangled from the crisp white resin chairs.

Things got a little more dramatic for the cocktail hour and reception. Chalk Shop designed some seriously enviable custom signs for the swanky affair. We adorned these works of art with floral swag embellishments. Black and gold glamour and luxurious textures was the name of the game for the show-stopping reception. The sweetheart table dazzled in gold sequin linen from Over the Top Rental Linens, as our floral garland paired with the newlyweds personalized chalk art added even more pizzazz!

The guest tables were equally as stunning with floor length black linens, topped with a modern black and white striped table runner. No glitz and glam was spared in the making of these beautiful tablescapes! Pops of gold accented the atmosphere with chiavari chairs, table numbers, candle votives, and gold-beaded chargers. We loved creating varying heights of floral centerpieces to add dimension and visual interest to the space. The arrangements boasted full blooms of white hydrangeas, orchids, and vibrant shades of pink roses. Friends and family were encouraged to indulge their sweet treat cravings with a candy buffet from Sweet Bliss Candy Stations and a classic buttercream cake from Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

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.
