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!

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.

The reception décor was magical, to say the last. The chic drapes from Swag Décor, the candles scattered across the tables, and the fantastic cake topped with fresh flowers all came together to create one memorable evening.

Ritz Carlton Orlando: Julie and David

When he proposed under the 4th of July fireworks, David and Julie both knew they wanted to incorporate that night into their wedding day. As the sunset overlooked the water at Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, the couple exchanged vows and said “I Do.” Blush by Brandee Gaar  planned a spectacular event accented by navy blue, orange, and silver, and Kristen Weaver Photography captured the entire soiree from sun up, to sun down.

We loved creating a bridal bouquet that popped with color against Julie’s white, flowing gown. We mixed peach and pink roses with orange lilies, and added fresh succulents for a modern feel. For the bridesmaid we kept it classic with all white bouquets of roses, hydrangeas and mini succulents. The outdoor ceremony was magical! We loved how the center aisle, scattered in peach and cream rose petals, led the way to her groom at the front of the alter. After their first kiss as husband and wife, a showering of fireworks lit up the night’s sky over the lake–just as it did on their proposal night.

Chalk Shop created a beautiful mirrored sign etching out the night’s events. The mood inside the reception was set to party. Cafe lights from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting and Design were strung across the ceiling while silver plated tree centerpieces took the spotlight. We loved incorporating arrangements and clusters of orange roses and lilies through the branches. And because we leave no stone unturned, the bottom was covered in a layer of moss and finished with frosted candle votives and succulent buds. The party raged on into the evening as The Leonard Brothers cranked out the tunes and guests danced the night away.

Ritz-Carlton Orlando: Julia and Dave

Julia and Dave had a magical wedding at the Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes. Coordinated by the extraordinary wedding planners at Blush by Brandee Gaar and photographed by Kristen Weaver Photography, their wedding day was full of gorgeous details.

The accent colors for the day were tones of peach, coral and orange. We created a coral rose boutonniere for Dave, adding succulent petals to coordinate with his bride’s bouquet. Julia’s bouquet was comprised mostly of a variety of roses in shades from blush pink to peach to coral. Bold orange lilies and green succulents provided contrast and added a modern accent.

For Julia’s bridesmaids, we kept the types of flowers similar to those in her bridal bouquet. To create a sophisticated look against their dark navy dresses, the roses and hydrangea were all shades of cream and white and tinges with soft green.

Julia and Dave’s ceremony took place outdoors at sunset. The aisle was lined with vessels of rose petals topped with pillar candles, and a beautiful bridal aisle was created with more peach and coral rose petals. The couple timed their vows perfectly so that fireworks went off right afterwards!

For the reception, we created custom silver trees dotted with clusters of orange floral. At the base of each arrangement was a bed of moss and succulents surrounded by candles.

Ritz-Carlton: Dana and Henry

 

Dana and Henry married at the The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes last month, and their wedding was an absolute stunner! Right on trend, the couple featured shades of rich purple as the focus of their decor. The planning team at An Affair to Remember did a great job pulling together all of the details, and Kristen Weaver Photography caught it all on film.

The ceremony space was draped in a romantic lilac fabric, courtesy of Swag Decor. Our tall white arrangements were placed in white urns on top of white columns with soft purple rose petals at their bases. A mirrored table from A Chair Affair added a glam touch. Dana’s bouquet was all purple, so we decided to contrast her bridesmaids’ bouquets to be all white flowers. Purple floral against Dana beautiful white gown and white floral against the bridesmaids’ deep purple dresses were the perfect pairings!

The reception was completely transformed into a regal purple ballroom, complete with silver and plum linens, silver chiavari chairs by A Chair Affair, stunning purple uplighting from Soundwave Entertainment, and our gorgeous white and purple centerpieces. We used white hydrangea, purple orchids, and touches of fern fronds for a romantic and modern look.
