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!

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.

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.

Timacuan Golf Club: Kelly and Amir

 

Kelly and Amir had a beautiful wedding, starting with their ceremony atMarkham Woods Presbyterian Church and reception at Timacuan Golf Club. The couple decided to keep their decor simple, natural, and sophisticated. Their colors were white and green, with an accent of aqua bridesmaids’ dresses. White lace bridal gown

White and green bridal bouquet

 

We created a gorgeous bouquet for Kelly, full of soft white blooms and touches of green ferns for a natural look. Her maids carried similar bouquets, with the addition of bunches of green berries and green hydrangeas. For the ceremony, we made white and green floral arrangements for the altar, adding white hydrangea and white delphiniums for texture.

At the reception, we highlighted the height of the room and the stunning chandeliers with our tall floral centerpieces. Glass vessels were topped with white roses and hydrangeas with romantic trailing greenery. Curly willow branches were added to the vases for texture and interest. We added a few pristine white rose blooms to the classic white, four-tier cake byParty Flavors Custom Cakes, and encircled the base of the cake with the bridesmaids’ bouquets (a great idea if you are on a budget).

We loved creating the floral for this occasion! We complemented the natural vibe of their wedding with yellow sunflowers with white floral accents for the bridal party’s bouquets with matching boutonnieres for the gentleman. For Clare’s bouquet, we designed a white cascading bridal bouquet with accents of ivy and greenery. We even incorporated the white floral and ivy into a lush garland for their grand staircase. It made for a stunning visual masterpiece.

To coincide with the fuchsia and navy theme, we arranged bridal bouquets of hot and pale pink roses for the bridesmaids. For Amanda’s bouquet, we chose to complement her look with classical white roses as her bouquet. For the ceremony, we designed a stunning white rose cross floral arrangement to go with the Oathing Stone Ceremony they asked A Beautiful Ceremony to perform to wed them with.
