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!

Blush and Gold Wedding at the Reunion Resort

Every wedding is special, but Christina and Joseph’s Blush and Gold Wedding at the Reunion Resort was double the fun! This wedding was an absolutely stunning two-day event, expertly planned by Blush by Brandee Gaar, with every special moment and detail brilliantly captured by Bow Tie Photo.

The ceremony at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Celebration was simple, but memorable.

Christina looked so beautiful as she walked down the aisle, wearing a stunning gown with lace touches, her hair in a sophisticated updo. Of course, her bouquet had to be just as elegant to match! We created her beautiful bouquet with white hydrangea, accented throughout with open pink and white O’Hara garden roses, and cream and champagne roses. Soft touches of Italian ruscus and some seeded eucalyptus greenery for texture completed the arrangement.

For Joseph, we crafted his boutonniere with simplicity and elegance in mind, using a white ranunculus to complement his bride’s beautiful gown. It was just so heartwarming to see Christina and Joseph stand together throughout the ceremony; they made such a beautiful couple!

All eyes were on our couple, but the bridesmaids and groomsmen made quite a style statement as well! The bridesmaids wore the most lovely pale blush gowns, their bouquets created to match with blush ranunculus. The groomsmen donned matching boutonnieres of pink ranunculus.

As beautiful as the ceremony was, the reception at Reunion Resort was truly breathtaking! Shimmery golden linens added a regal look to the tables, perfectly paired with tall glass bell vases. They towered high with lush bouquets of hydrangea blooms, open cream and blush pink roses throughout, with beautiful white orchids spilling out. We even added accents of Italian Ruscus for color and texture. It all came together flawlessly, with everything a perfect fit for Christina and Joseph’s sweet and elegant natures. This Blush and Gold Wedding at Reunion Resort really was unforgettable!

After two days of laughter, happy tears, and memory-making, it was finally time to say goodbye to our newlyweds as they began the next chapter of their journey together. Congratulations again, Christina and Joseph! We wish you all the happiness in the world!

Blush and Gold at the Country Club of Orlando: Alexandra and Sam

You can never go wrong with a blush and gold wedding, and Alexandra and Sam’s wedding at the Country Club of Orlando is proof of that! Of course, Blush by Brandee Gaar’s brilliant planning must have also had something to do with the whole event turning out flawless!

The blush and gold tones created the perfect romantic vibe, and we had such a great time creating the floral; the pure creamy white blooms we used just contrasted and complemented the warmth of the blush and gold beautifully!

Alexandra looked like a heroine out of a fairytale as she walked down the aisle towards a grinning Sam, with a blush in her cheeks and her dark hair in a half-up, half-down style, so it cascaded down her shoulders and stood out against the white of her dress.

Her bridal bouquet had been lovingly crafted with white hydrangea blooms and white lissianthus floral, with white ranunculus blooms and beautiful white and champagne garden roses, all accented with seeded eucalyptus foliage, Italian ruscus and cascading tangerine vine. The result was a truly lovely and unique bouquet, just perfect for Alexandra!

The couple’s faces glowed with joy as they exchanged vows, and the party began almost as soon as the ceremony ended. The ceremony was lovely, to be sure, but the reception turned out to be a party to remember! The room was elegantly and flawlessly decorated, with plenty of hints of gold throughout, and lush floral centerpieces that towered atop the tables!

At the end of the day, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that this was a wedding that all of us would remember forever, but there truly was nothing more beautiful than seeing the smiles on our newlyweds’ faces and their joy at beginning the next chapter of their lives.

Reunion Resort: Shannon and Greg

Every wedding is unique in its own way, but Shannon and Greg’s wedding at the Reunion Resort was truly memorable! The couple opted for a peacock theme, which Blush by Brandee Gaar coordinated perfectly!

Peacocks are beautiful, exotic creatures. Yet as a wedding theme, it could’ve been easily overdone. Fortunately, Shannon and Greg had the perfect vision in mind. For the most part, the couple stuck to neutral colors – including a classic white dress for Shannon and black dresses for the bridesmaids – while using the perfect peacock blue for a gorgeous pop of color.

Shannon made a stunning bride as she walked down the aisle. For her bridal bouquet, we designed a bouquet of white mini calla lilies and peacock feathers, creating the perfect complement to her white Ines Di Santo dress. The bridesmaid bouquets, meanwhile, were beautiful arrangements of blue hydrangeas, Picasso mini calla lilies, purple lisianthus, green cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus.

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.

Private Residence: Russell and James

Weddings, whether big or small, are always an amazing experience for all involved. Russell and James’ wedding was no different.

Meticulously put together by Alison Watkins of Blush by Brandee Gaar, the event was equal parts intimate and sophisticated. Sara and Jason of Concept Photography beautifully captured every little smile and detail at the reception.

The day began with a simple yet gorgeous ceremony at the beach, followed by a reception enjoyed by all at a private residence. Keeping with the navy and yellow theme, the couple donned striking boutonnieres of single yellow calla lilies.

While James and Russell opted for all yellow flowers, the arrangements we created for them were anything but boring! Centerpieces featuring yellow calla lilies or yellow tulips evoked warmth and comfort, while the yellow roses adorning the buffet were the picture of elegant simplicity. Even the delicious, three-tier chevron cake expertly created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes looked even more beautiful surrounded by yellow roses.

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.
