Modern Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes Wedding

When our team so often creates over-the-top, romantic arrangements for weddings, it was a special treat for us to switch directions and create minimalist, modern designs for this Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes wedding.

Edwin and Keith knew exactly what kind of design they wanted: sleek and sophisticated. Fortunately, they had the powerhouse Lisa Stoner Events handling the entire day, so the wedding epitomized sophistication and a one-of-a-kind type of luxury! Capturing the day from one incredible detail to the next (and preserving it for the rest of us to admire!) was the phenomenal Root Photography.

The outdoor ceremony was perfectly timed to the sunset, starting with breathtaking views of swimming colors on the horizon, ending with the early beginnings of nightfall.

As the nightfall arrived, it was time for the ceremonial leather branding….didn’t we mention that Lisa Stoner Events had created a one-of-a-kind wedding experience? Each groom branded the leather swatch with his initials, creating a truly unique, monogrammed piece that will hang in their home as a reminder of this incredible day.

After the awe-inspiring ceremony, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds on the lawn!

In keeping with the modern wedding, we created centerpieces that were sleek and minimalist in their design. Each table featured a sculpted boxwood, framed by another smaller boxwood border.

We kept the accents to a minimum, using a hint of white orchid in one corner of each frame to complement the rest of the table design. To add a final layer of depth to the masculine, modern design, we incorporated tea lights within the box, set below the sculpted boxwood as a sleek accent for the nighttime reception.

After enjoying incredible food and dancing out on the lawn, and then again in the ballroom, it was eventually time for us to say goodbye to the newlyweds. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of this modern wedding, and we wish Edwin and Keith nothing but happiness in their new life together! Congratulations, you two!

Intimate Wedding at the Ritz: Lisa and Brian

All weddings, big or small, are special, but Lisa and Brian’s intimate wedding at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes definitely struck a chord with us. This couple is so special, and to be a part of their Big Day was such an honor for us.

Expertly planned by Blush by Brandee Gaar and captured by Damon Tucci Photography, each moment of the day was absolutely perfect. Lisa looked lovely as she walked down the aisle toward her groom, her hair in loose waves and her makeup natural.

She carried a lovingly-crafted traditional bouquet, created with assorted roses in whites, creams, and soft blush blooms. White and pink ranunculus added a bit of texture, while baby’s breath created the perfect accent.

Of course, our groom had to match! For Brian, we created a boutonniere with white ranunculus and baby’s breath, the perfect complement to Lisa’s bridal bouquet.

The pair married in a brief but beautiful outdoor ceremony. The Grecian pillars added so much romance and old-world sophistication!

The day seemed to end all too quickly, but it was one we will always remember. Congratulations once more, Lisa and Brian!
