Alexa & Rob | The Shimmer of Rose Gold

Alexa & Rob | The Shimmer of Rose Gold

Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Rose gold because of its pinkish color is known as the metal of romance. While white gold represents friendship and yellow gold means fidelity, rose gold represents love.

In addition, much like the beautiful blending of these two amazing families, copper added to gold actually makes it stronger and gives the gold its rose color.

The blending of these two families actually began at the rehearsal dinner.

Rob grew up all over the world and had one prized possession, and this prized possession moved with him and the family as they traversed the world: this fun, well-loved stuffed animal. In a very touching moment at the rehearsal dinner, Rob’s mother shared this gift with Alexa.

On her wedding day Alexa chose a stunning couture wedding gown by Galia Lahav. This gown inspired by Italian tile was a blending of antique rose lace and a shimmering ivory lace and paired perfectly with her rose gold wedding shoes with a crystal-banded heel.

Alexa carried a beautiful hand tied bridal bouquet of a very unique calla lily in a soft coppery color; in perfect contrast to her wedding party who wore soft shadowy grey gowns, carrying white bouquets with soft touches of Dusty Miller.

Rob chose a classic custom tailored, European inspired tuxedo with a satin shawl collar, accented with a simple calla lily from Alexa’s bridal bouquet.

Alexa and Rob exchanged their wedding vows, surrounded by family and friends, under a breathtaking cascade of cream and blush colored flowers and soft billowing fabric.

Their luxurious wedding reception in the Ritz Carlton’s ballroom continued to blend family and friends. Soft accent lighting reflected off flowing cream colored draping produced a shimmering glow throughout the room.

Guests dined under crystal chandeliers and an awe-inspiring floral chandelier was the focal point in the  center of the room. Long guest tables, designed for interaction, were adorned with mirrored panels, soft gold toned glass vases overflowing with soft white hydrangea and blush roses, and floating candles.

Layering the tables with textured blush dupioni silk linen, gold-rimmed glass charger plates and round, custom designed menu cards completed this warm, romantic design.

Spring Garden Inspired Alfond Inn Wedding || Amanda + Aaron


Amanda and Aaron’s Alfond Inn Wedding

 

Amanda and Aaron tied the knot this spring with a perfectly pink garden inspired Alfond Inn wedding. As if working as a full time nurse and pursuing a master’s degree in nursing wasn’t enough of a handful, I met Amanda when she was also juggling the wedding planning process. She recently moved from Texas to Orlando following her engagement to Aaron, and didn’t know a soul. What she did love was her home with Aaron. Her favorite place to daydream and have a glass of wine after a long day of work and studying was their backyard deck. She loved getting to sit still in the moment with her beloved and gaze at the trees under the twinkle lights. There was something about that favorite place of theirs that melted the worries of the world away.


 

Their Spring Garden Inspired Design

 

When Amanda came to me to for help, I knew right away that I wanted their big day together to tap into their favorite place in an elegant and enchanting way that they’d remember for their lifetime to come. Together we were able to create a breathtaking event that truly astonished guests. Needless to say, their beautiful outdoor courtyard ceremony resembled the beauty of a botanical garden with the help of Fairbanks Florist‘s Lana Faulkner. It was complete with whimsical arrangements atop wrought iron columns that lined the bride’s pathway. Not to mention, the bouquets and the bridesmaids’ dresses complimented one another perfectly as a color palette match made in heaven. (I mean, who doesn’t love blush and greenery together?) Amanda’s bouquet was adorned with a blush ribbon that had the perfect portrait look flowing in the wind.


 

Meanwhile, their indoor garden reception design complete with bountiful greenery, wooden accents, and twinkle lights made this elegant Winter Park, Florida boutique hotel venue feel better than home to this blissful couple. The space featured hanging greenery, garlands, and trees that really transformed the ballroom space into an whimsical garden while the abundance of candles created an intimate space that was nothing short of romantic. Along with the gold accent of the chiavari chairs, the glass chargers, and the elegant greenery inspired curved menus to compliment their blush palette, their reception space was the perfect balance of whimsy and sophistication.


 

Congratulations, Dr. and Mrs. Campbell!

 

If you couldn’t tell by the scrunched nose smiles and her eyes twinkling like the lights of their reception space, these two love each other deeply. One of my favorite things about their day is that it really spoke to who they were as a couple. While we were able to share their beloved outdoor space with their closest family and friends in a way that exuded pure romance and whimsy, we infused Amanda’s Caribbean roots by having a Junkanoo band play their entrance into the reception. Not to mention, their wedding was also a dream to pet parents everywhere as they were able to include their fur babies in on the paw-fect celebration!

 

Amanda and Aaron, I am so honored that you chose me to be a part of your truly magical wedding day. You are absolutely the sweetest couple and were such a joy to work with. I hope to have more couples who radiate as much pure love as you in the future. I wish you all the happiness and well wishes in the world as Dr. and Mrs. Campbell!
