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.

Ali and Matt married on December 28, 2013 at the beautiful Bella Collina. The couple hired Ash Imagery, located in Pennsylvania where they currently live, to travel with them to Florida to celebrate with their 250 friends and family. With the help of Alison Watkins of Blush by Brandee Gaar, the day went off without a hitch!

Ali was the epitome of classic elegance. Her side-swept chignon and understated smoky eyes by hair and makeup artist Cristi Miranda made the most of her natural beauty. Her unique dress, by Rivini, was perfect for Florida winter. The sheer 3/4 sleeves provided all the warmth needed! We created her bouquet, and the complementary bride’s maids bouquets, to mimic the shapes and textures on Ali’s dress. The result was a mixed arrangement of white, green, and warm brown flowers and plants. How otherworldly and yet so natural!

The decor at the reception carried the same white and green color palette and all “natural elegance” feel. We used a variety of white floral accented by vibrant greenery on top of the rustic wooden tables. Lanterns, tall pillars candles, and votive candles in a variety of metallic holders provided romantic ambiance. Party Flavors created a simply sweet three-tier cake which sat amongst a huge dessert buffet provided by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Maitland Art Center: Style Me Pretty Feature

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Father and BrideWe are thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty for one the most unique weddings we’ve played a part in. This wedding ceremony took place at the Maitland Art Center in Maitland, Florida and was followed by an intimate reception at 310 Lakeside Restaurant. The bride and groom celebrated their marriage with family and friends from across the world. They had guests from Japan, South Africa, Europe and Australia. Pietri Photography captured beautiful photographs from the day.Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal Gown

We love that our bride chose to add gardenias to her bouquet to keep with family tradition–how special! Her David’s Bridal gown was simply gorgeous, and the texture of the lace looked lovely with the bold shapes of her florals. The traditional Catholic ceremony took place in the roofless chapel at the Maitland Art Center. Instead of communion the priest gave a homily which compared a pineapple to the sweetness of marriage. Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Ceremony

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, First KissCan you believe this entire wedding cost under $10,000? The bride’s mother-in-law brought table linens from South Africa, and Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals provided chair rentals for the day. Sprinkles Custom Cakes designed a traditional South African fruit cake for the reception. DJ Scott Thompson of Thompson Entertainment provided entertainment for the reception–not to mention a surprise visit from Elvis! Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bouquet
