Jessica and Josh wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, so they decided the next step was to get married and celebrate with their family and friends! Their classically beautiful ceremony, held at the stunning Trinity Lutheran Church in downtown Orlando, reminded everyone the importance of the event.
Their country chic reception, held at the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom, felt like walking through a summer garden with Petals by Design‘s lovely sunflower and blue hydrangea centerpieces and hanging votives. The mahogany brown chiavari chairs with white cushions and navy pintuck linens added to the elegant summertime feel. Rhodes Studios captured the fun and importance of the day in their photos and Soundwave Entertainment kept the dance floor packed until the end of the night.
Working on this wedding was a blast! We’d like to acknowledge everyone that was involved!

Summer and fall weddings are around the corner, so check out this bridal photo shoot we organized for some tropical inspiration with International Palms Resort and Shinner Photography! For more information on the photo shoot, check out Beautiful Bride magazine that featured this shoot on the front cover!
The ceremony scene looked amazing and so did our model bride! Marigold Scott on Location Hair and Makeup took the model’s natural looks and enhanced them. The dress, by Allure Gown from Minerva’s Bridal, looked stunning as well.
The warm, tropical look was created by A Chair Affair‘s natural wood chiavari chairs for the ceremony and bamboo chairs for the reception area. The centerpieces, from Flowers by Lesley‘s, completed the reception look with floating candles and beautiful orange, red, and white flowers.
I love participating in photo shoots and this one was no different! Working with these talented companies was a blast.

Pamela and Andrew were such fun couple to work with! Their ceremony looked like an image from a fairytale, with Bagpipe Reginald Lyle providing the soundtrack as a nod to the bride’s Scottish heritage. And Cypress Grove Estate House‘s lake and gazebo, with it’s billowing white curtains, made a picture-perfect backdrop.
The reception was just as beautiful, with lots of personal touches thanks to Pamela’s love for all things Etsy! Lee Forrest Designs created whimsical red and yellow centerpieces in mix-n-match bottles and vases, and Rhodes Studios captured all the fun and beauty of the wedding in their photographs. Soundwave Entertainment‘s DJ helped everyone dance off the calories they ate, thanks to the awesome candy station, the wedding cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes and Big City Catering‘s delicious food! Pamela and Andrew’s first dance was amazing, thanks to Two Left Feet dance studio. Everyone had a great time, even after the unexpected rainstorm that drove everyone inside temporarily!

This photo shoot was a dream to design and so much fun to work on. Everything looked beautiful and Wings of Glory Photography‘s pictures came out great! It was held at the stunning and new private estate/ event venue- The Garden Chateau. We had a storybook backdrop to work with and the amazing team collaboration made this vision of beauty a reality.
The “couple” married under an arch of roses by Flowers By Lesley. To complete the vintage chic feeling, A Chair Affair used their picturesque church pews. Flowers By Lesley also provided the bride’s and bridesmaid’s stunning peony and rose bouquets. The bride’s Alfred Angelo dress photographed amazingly from every angle and the groom looked snappy in his tuxedo by Absolutely Fitting. The wedding party’s hair and make-up, done by Kristy’s On-Location Makeup Artistry & Hair Design, looked timeless and romantic.
Indoor and outdoor reception areas were set-up and both were equally beautiful. The indoor reception looked like something from a period film, with ivory linens paired with A Chair Affair‘s mahogany brown chiavari chairs, Flowers By Lesley‘s white and pink centerpieces, and Weddings By 2 + Hue‘s accent pieces.
Flowers By Lesley did a remarkable job with all the centerpieces. The vintage candelabras filled with a variety of florals and candle accents really took our breath away. A Chair Affair‘s farm tables paired with their signature chiavari chairs provided a unique foundation and seating option to the outdoor setting. Weddings By 2 + Hue‘s gold ornate picture frames acted as a perfect accent to Dogwood Blossom Stationary‘s gold with rose accents menus and invites.
This photo shoot turned out better than we ever could have hoped and everyone involved was just so talented! These extraordinary event professionals included:

It was photographed magnificently by Wings of Glory Photography and also featured on the Every Last Detail blog.
The green and purple color scheme looked amazing on Hitched Event Rentals‘ white chairs and clear chiavari chairs. Flowers By Lesley white rose and purple flower arrangement brought a touch of nature to the modern-styled shoot.
Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio, LLC provided the menus and purple and green patterned seating cards.
The star of the show was Wendy Woo Cakes‘ giant white cake accented in purple.

When we first met Angela, she was an exuberant, newly engaged bride-to-be, and she was in search of creating the perfect wedding. She attended the Central Florida Bridal Association Bridal Show for inspiration. Coincidentally, she was the winner of the grand prize we offered at the show, which included day-of wedding coordination service. She and husband-to-be Brian chose Mead Gardens as their location.
Their wedding was simple, yet beautiful. Fashion and Flower Mart provided the bridesmaids with baby’s breaths bouquets and the flower girl’s crown, but the mother of the bride designed and supplied the bride’s bouquet herself. The result was a stunning combination of white roses and crystals.
Claire Pacelli Photography used Mead Gardens‘ green benches as a brilliant color combination that magically accentuated the garden’s lush greenery along with a bright contrast to the bridal party’s red dresses. The results were stunning!
The reception took place in the Winter Park Garden Club and was loads of fun! Sapphire Productions‘ DJ played music that kept everyone on the dance floor! We wish this gorgeous couple the best of luck and eternal happiness.
