The Ultimate Indian Fusion Wedding: Karina and Sachin

Happy couples make for happy weddings, and one of the most joyous occasions for us was Karina and Sachin’s special day at The Hilton Oceanfront Resort! Expertly planned by Blush by Brandee Gaar, this Indian fusion wedding went off without a hitch, with every unique detail flawlessly captured by Nate and Lori.

For their white wedding, Karina was a vision as she walked down the aisle in a elaborately embroidered and bejeweled gown, reminiscent of classic Indian bridal dresses cut in a European style. Sachin, for his part, looked dashing in a crisp suit.

We love all our weddings, but Indian weddings are inevitably the most fun when it comes to designing floral! We got to experiment with different colors and textures, creating bouquets with blush hydrangeas, pink roses, purple roses, white roses, lavender orchids, lavender lisianthus, and lavender stock for Karina and her bridesmaids.

The classic Indian portion of their wedding was purely traditional, with lots of reds and vivid colors throughout, so of course, we had to incorporate some red into the floral! We used red roses for the centerpieces, along with some pink and white blooms for colorful and balanced arrangements.

Our bride and groom looked regal in their traditional Indian attire, Sachin in a gold and red sherwani and Karina in a vivid crimson gown hemmed with gold. The love and joy was almost palpable in the air throughout the ceremonies, every moment a testament of two families coming together.

Winter Park Racquet Club: David and Ilana

Every wedding is beautiful, but David and Ilana’s Jewish wedding at Winter Park Racquet Club was special. With traditional Jewish customs incorporated into the ceremony and reception and Blush by Brandee Gaar coordinating it all, their big day was bound to be a memorable affair.

Sivan Photography perfectly captured every moment and detail of the evening, from David and Ilana getting ready to the signing of their marriage contract. Honoring tradition, David and Ilana signed their marriage contract before the ceremony, under the guidance of Rabbi Rick. Immediately after, David and his mother lowered Ilana’s veil.

Ilana made a gorgeous bride as she walked down a petal-strewn aisle towards the chuppah, carrying a unique bouquet created with a mix of white and lavender tones. Roses, Dahlia blooms, freesia, and lilac resulted in a beautiful and fragrant bouquet, perfectly complementing David’s lavender rose and dusty miller boutonniere.

The couple were wed under an elaborate chuppah, designed with an array of vibrant purple and blue hydrangea, lavender, peach and soft pink roses. Stock in deep purple, pink heather, and cascading purple orchids created an overall aura of earthy refinement as they made their vows.

David and Ilana’s reception was wonderful, with soft lighting by Kaleidoscope Lighting lending a gentle glow to the room. Lush floral centerpieces, featuring more of the same blooms used for the chuppah, rested in gold vessels and were surrounded by gold mercury candles for a romantic effect.

After a delicious dinner and the cake-cutting, it was time to dance. In true Jewish fashion, David and Ilana joined hands with their loved ones to dance the night away. And of course, the Hora, or Chair Dance, was a must.

Congratulations, David and Ilana! We were so honored to be a part of your beautiful wedding, and we wish you all the best for your future!

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.

Bella Collina: “A Night of Wedding Bliss” Luxe Gala

Chalk board floral

We were truly honored to be a part of Bella Collina‘s recent event, “A Night of Wedding Bliss.” The evening was devoted to wedding luxury in all its facets. All of the wedding venues of Bella Collina were decked out by some of the finest wedding professionals in Central Florida. These photos by Concept Photography are just a taste of what we designed and doesn’t even showcase HALF of the beauty of the night that was created by our colleagues. Well done, everyone!

Green hydrangea runner

We worked with Blush by Brandee Gaar to outfit the small dining room with three very different looks on each of the long dining tables. Linens by Kirby Rental and decorative items by A Chair Affair really made our tables come to life.

On the central table, we created a dramatic floral table runner out of green hydrangea. Warm-toned hurricanes, lanterns, and votive holders glowed against the rich, glossy wooden table.

Another of our tables featured ornate metal lanterns and woven chargers for a garden feel. For our floral garland, we used a variety of pink and white blooms with plenty of greenery so that the look was natural and carefree.

Lanterns - pink floral

Our third table was all about shimmer and shine. Glitter table runners set the stage for crystal candelabras, gold flatware, and glimmering chargers. Our floral pieces were tight and composed, with classic wedding favorites: white hydrangea and pink roses. A sweet rose was added as a special touch to each napkin.

Finally, we added the perfect floral touches to bring the naked cake by Two Sweets Bake Shop to life. Just like the rest of the room, we used pink floral and greenery that balanced between formal and casual.

Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate: Lauren and Alex

Lauren and Alex tied the knot at Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate this past May. Their vision of a black and gold soiree came alive with the assistance of Blush by Brandee Gaar while The Hons Photography was behind the scenes capturing every gorgeous detail and priceless moment.

The bride and groom exuded elegance and class and we wanted their floral decor to reflect the ambiance they created. Their ceremony was simplistically decorated with two grand black vases featuring white floral centerpieces framing a black aisle lined with white rose petals. For the bridesmaids, we designed white floral bouquets with white gerbera daises with black centers and carnations. For Lauren, we created a beautiful white floral bouquet with white roses and carnations to complement her beauty and the floral decor.

Before walking into the reception ballroom, our white floral centerpieces with gold vases brought visual focus to the stunning seating chart table with white escort cards designed by Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio LLC. Once the newlyweds and their guests reached the ballroom, they were greeted with tables beautifully decorated with black linens accented with black and white striped table runners. Smaller white floral centerpieces in square black vases and small candles surrounded our grand cloud-like white floral centerpieces in elegant black vases. Mirror table numbers signs from Chalk Shop Events with gold beaded glass chargers provided by A Chair Affair completed the overall feel of sophistication and prestige.

Lauren and Alex added a touch of classical fun and whimsy with a delicious milk and cookie dessert bar. All of the delicious treats were baked with love by Two Sweets Bake Shop. To go with their nostalgic desserts,  Party Flavors Custom Cakes created two scrumptious cakes for the happy couple and all of their loved ones to enjoy. We provided white floral accents for their 4-tiered white wedding cake with black ribbon lining each tier while Alex’s groom’s cake showcased the rivalry between his beloved team, the University of Maryland Terrapins, and Lauren’s team of choice, the University of Miami Ibis.

Lauren’s bridal look was classic elegance, so we chose lavender and deep plum floral accents, including white and purple Picasso calla lilies, for her bridal bouquet. Her bridesmaids had complementing white floral bouquets with accents of greenery with matching boutonnieres for the gentlemen. Their flower girl and ring bearer had their very own floral accents with a white rose bouquet for their lovely princess and a white rose boutonniere for their sweet prince.

Cypress Grove Estate House: Mackenzie and Beau

Mackenzie and Beau began their next great adventure together this past March at the Cypress Grove Estate House. Their vision of a sophisticated rustic wedding was achieved with the assistance of Blush by Brandee Gaar with their long-time photographer and friend The Canovas Photography capturing every priceless moment.

Mackenzie was inspired by her and Beau’s travels to Ireland and Alaska, and wanted to incorporate the natural beauty and earthy tones of those locations. She envisioned a navy blue theme with hints of blue, white, green and brown tones, so we created bouquets of white roses and white muscari for the bridesmaids’ bouquets and elegant blue muscari for Mackenzie’s bouquet, with complementing boutonnieres for Beau and his groomsmen. For the ceremony floral, we created a variety of arrangements with powder blue floral surrounded by white accents and greenery.

Our powder blue and white floral centerpieces surrounded rustic lanterns on each reception table, along with French country chairs provided by A Chair Affair and personalized table numbers designed by Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio, LLC reflecting the destinations the couple have visited together. For the main course, Mackenzie, Beau and their guests enjoyed the catering talents of Big City Catering ending with gorgeously designed wedding cupcakes by Sweet by Holly and an assorted dessert bar created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

What made Mackenzie and Beau’s celebration unique and over-the-top was the entertainment. Not only did Mackenzie plan a choreographed father-daughter dance, but she had another ace up her sleeve: a fireworks show! She and her husband conferred with Messina Productions about not only musical entertainment, but a nighttime show as well. They pulled it off flawlessly, with the newlyweds dancing together to “Fireworks” by Katy Perry. It was the perfect end to an unforgettable day.
