The Ballroom at Church Street: Caitlin and Tyler

Caitlin and Tyler’s wedding was beautiful and romantic. Following the ceremony at Annunciation Catholic Church, Altamonte Springs, the celebration continued at Church Street Ballroom in downtown Orlando. The wedding was made possible through coordination and planning by Sweet Pea Brides, and was photographed by Love Light Lens.

The floral designs that we created for their big day included cream and blush pink roses and white hydrangeas with sweet sprigs of greenery. Caitlin’s bouquet was made entirely from roses, with one special bright red rose that she kept turned towards her heart.

Our centerpieces for the reception were understated and sweet. The white hydrangea and pale pink roses reflected the style of the bridesmaids’ bouquets. For added glamour, the arrangements were placed in shiny mercury glass containers.

Casa Feliz: Karina and Taylor

This offbeat couple swirled their love of music, zombies, and vintage style into a casual, October ceremony on the grounds of Casa Feliz. The wonderful planners at Sweet Pea Brides coordinated the event which was captured by The Hons Photography. The bride was stunning as she walked down the aisle in a Lazaro dress while a string quartet played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the balcony above. For the bride, we designed an arrangement of deep, rich colors that were carried over into the simple, yet elegant bouquets carried by her bridesmaids. They went were the perfect accessory to the bridesmaid’s classic dresses from Lindy Bop, and showcasing the couple’s laid back style, the groom and his groomsmen wore Converse sneakers. The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s aunt, who customized ending with “Until death or zombies do you part.”

Surrounded by votive candles and small globes of greenery, hot air balloon centerpieces provided by Basic Grey sat on aged, wooden crates, adding to the vintage feel of the courtyard reception. Red linen napkins and silver chairs added a pop of color to the lace covered tables.

To incorporate the bride’s love of zombies, she sought the help of UK artist, Phillip Haynes to create a one of a kind cake topper of the bride herself, the groom, and their kitties. The tiered wedding cake decorated by Publix Bakery combined their love of zombies and music by adding small pieces of broken records to the blood-splattered buttercream and an additional cake topper of Shaun of the Dead. The delicious cupcakes for the event were provided by Sweet! By Holly.

The couple’s goal to keep the ceremony itself short and sweet and devote as much time as possible to spending time with their friends and family was a flawless success, and the DJ, Jay Liquid, kept them dancing through the night with all of their favorite songs. He even made suggestions to match their style.

We were thrilled to be a part of Karina and Taylor’s special day. Adding to that thrill: this wedding was featured on Offbeat Bride! Thank you to everyone involved who made it possible.
