Anabel & Juan’s Fairytale Wedding at the Four Seasons Orlando

Anabel & Juan’s Fairytale Wedding at the Four Seasons Orlando

What a dream it was to plan Anabel and Juan’s wedding! Anabel and I connected from the start. She has an effervescent personality and is a true joy to be around. Her warmth is contagious and we had such fun going over the details, big and small, for their wedding day.

The mood was set before the big day with custom stationery, monogram, and wax seal by the ever-talented Siuleth of Eleven Note. My personal favorite touch was the illustration of Anabel and Juan’s beloved dog, Daisy, for the reception cocktail napkins!










Anabel and Juan got ready for their wedding in separate suites at the Four Seasons Orlando, where the reception would be hosted later in the evening. Anabel’s bridal style was feminine and romantic, she wore a beautiful gown by Rita Vinieras from Solutions Bridal Orlando paired with Manolo Blahnik heels. The groom wore an exquisitely tailored tuxedo by Leonardo Fifth Avenue.

The couple were married in a traditional ceremony at the St. James Catholic Cathedral near Lake Eola Park in Orlando, Florida. The Roman Catholic Cathedral features beautiful murals and we filled the ceremony space with white floral arrangements.

The bride was walked down the aisle by her loving father in a dramatic, cathedral-length lace train.

Just married! Anabel’s joyous spirit is on full display in this heart-warming image.

Back at the Four Seasons, the manicured hotel grounds served as the perfect place for couple and family portraits.

Of course, Anabel and Juan’s wedding portraits would not be complete without their beloved dog, Daisy. It was a big day for Daisy too, her paw-rents were married! She shined in a matching lace dress with Mom. Could these two be any cuter?!

After their portraits were taken, I snuck Anabel and Juan away from the cocktail hour for my favorite moment – the reception space reveal. I believe this image will go down in Lisa Lyons Events history as one of the best reaction shots EVER!

The entire ballroom space was transformed into a dazzling, glamorous reception. White florals by Raining Roses wrapped around candelabras dripping in crystals. Metallic accents abounded with gold chargers, silver chairs, and mirrored tables to reflect it all. Fyerfly Productions set the mood with soft colored gels mixed with pin lighting. It was very much giving “Be Our Guest” if I do say so myself.

Anabel and Juan’s first dance was framed by a floral lined dance floor. The couple danced “on clouds” courtesy of a well-placed fog machine. And, of course, we brought the drama for the finale with cool sparks, courtesy of Fyerfly Productions.

After the couple cut the four-tiered cake, the party started! There were lighted stilt dancers, fire dancers, light sticks, and crazy glasses. The guests danced all night long.

The aforementioned fog machine made a second appearance in the hands of Anabel!

The evening culminated in a massive confetti release, a must for any celebration in my opinion!

Hailey & Conner | Practically Perfect Wedding

Hailey & Conner | Practically Perfect Wedding

Four Seasons Resort at Walt Disney World Resort

I have been struggling all week to come up with words to describe what this wedding looked and felt like for me, this couple, and their families…“Practically Perfect” is what keeps coming to mind!

Hailey and Connor have attended many weddings and came to Lisa Stoner Events wanting some signature elements that would create a memorable Central Florida wedding. These elements would have their family and friends talking about their wedding for years to come.

Connor was a standout wearing this show-stopping Ocean Blue custom suite designed by Balani of Winter Park.

Hailey wore an absolutely incredible Pronovias gown that pairs a crepe skirt, a fabric with beautiful flow and drape, that hugged her body and created a sleek silhouette; and a tulle bodice, embroidered with Chantilly lace appliques and beading created the illusion of an almost nude neckline that accentuated her femininity.

The perfect accents to this gowns sleek silhouette were a fantastic pair of Jimmy Choo’s and an oversized, loose, flowing bridal bouquet; consisting of pink peonies, full creamy roses, blush and white ranunculus, anemone, sweet pea and eucalyptus with thick, cascading satin ribbons.

Hailey and Connor had their First Look on the Four Seasons Orlando’s Grand Staircase.   Then they took some time for some breathtaking wedding portraits and some time alone before their wedding ceremony.

Their wedding ceremony took place just before sunset and wowed guests as they approached the resorts sprawling lawn. Set with white chivari chairs, the aisle was roped off with a thick broad garland of greener strung between two lush, loose arrangements of blush and white in beautiful garden urns.

Both sides of the aisle were lined with full, thick clusters of greenery and white hydrangea setting the perfect stage for the entrance of the wedding party, and Hailey’s entrance brought tears to Connor’s eyes.

The couple exchanged their vows in front of a massive arch of soft natural greenery accented with randomly places clusters of white flowers.

Even Hailey and Connor were surprised as they departed their outdoor wedding ceremony in an explosion of confetti.

Guests made their way to the breathtaking Four Season’s ballroom, draped with shimmering white opaque fabric. Guests dined at round tables with cascading slate blue linen, clear Infinity Chairs and beautiful towering centerpieces that drew inspiration from Hailey’s bridal bouquet.

Hailey and Conner know their guests very well, so the key to everyone having an awesome time was the  huge twenty-four-foot round, white dance floor placed in the adjacent space, drawing guests in with a fantastic band, photo booth, and chic lounge furniture.

Their Four Seasons Orlando wedding was filled with the perfect balance of beautiful details, unique elements and touching personal moments.

Guests ended their evening with late night drinks and snacks under a shower of shimmering gold confetti.

However, Hailey and Connor had one more surprise in store: A Grand Exit in an incredible 1958 Lincoln Continental MK III Convertible in a shower of fireworks.

Andrew & Matt | Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort

A family is the people you surround yourself with, partially by circumstance and partially by design.  Andrew and Matthew worked with our team at Lisa Stoner Events to create a unique, elegant and fun intimate wedding for about forty of their family.

The Four Seasons Orlando offered a beautiful backdrop for their Central Florida wedding ceremony and reception.

As with many same sex couples, Andrew and Matt chose to get ready in the same suite, spending time together, and  capturing some formal portraits on the Four Seasons amazing staircase prior to the wedding ceremony.

The grooms exchanged their wedding vows on the resorts Areca Lawn followed by their cocktail reception on the Queen Terrace and intimate dinner reception in the Queen Room.
