Brittany & Barret | Urban Garden Wedding

Lisa Stoner +First Dance + .jpg

I know I talk a lot about details here, but if you are here and participating in this medium, I am pretty sure you’ll understand where I am coming from…

Weddings are more than “colors” and “themes.” Weddings are a communion, a reverent celebration, a story, (your love story!) and an experience for not only you, but for your family and friends to savor and remember for a lifetime.

The fact that this was Brittany’s sensibility when she met with me for the first time told me everything I needed to know and offered me the perfect charge! She and Barret had been on what I call the “wedding circuit.” So many of their friends and peers are getting married and it seemed as if they were going to a wedding every other month! Through these weddings she and Barret attended, she had seen, heard and tasted what seemed to be everything, and she wanted hers and Barret’s wedding to be signature, just like them! *wink.

First things first; starting the day relaxed and confident is the perfect approach to experiencing all of the beautiful moments that are ahead of you as the day unfolds.

This space here is to give you ample warning (and time to grab some tissues!) as to quite possibly the most emotional Daddy reveal I have ever seen. Now tell me these are not images that will turn into forever mementos!

Recovered yet? Shall I give you a moment?  Here’s a sweet Bridesmaids reveal as you gain your composure!

How about a stunning look at Brittany’s processional, a sharp wedding party and some portraits of Brittany and Barret to look at while you take care of that pesky thing in your eye… *wink!

Brittany’s white, lush and romantic bouquet consisted of white garden roses peonies and, my favorite, ranunculus (seriously, I try to sneak them in every wedding that I am able!) against light touches of greenery. The trailing ribbons were soft, feminine and I loved how the bouquet moved with her in that striking Ines DiSanto gown.

I love that these portraits here are the perfect transition from the garden aesthetic from just outside Knowles Chapel to what we created inside the ballroom at The Alfond Inn!

So what sets this wedding apart from the others? Cue the details!

Lisa Stoner + Greenery Wedding + Root Photography Alfond Inn - 041 (1).jpg

Designing a wedding reception in a ballroom needs particular attention to details that offer those 4 walls life. We opted for these tall centerpieces with cascading greenery and candles on top to offer a romantic and dreamy glow as guests dined.

I loved how the seating directory turned out thanks to Andi Mejia Calligraphy!

This wedding cake was very well deserving of it’s very own backdrop!

I had four custom trellis panels constructed where vines and greenery were interwoven throughout with touches of white florals creating a 10-12 foot canopy over our bars and cake. It was magical!

These chic, marble chargers with gold flatware and the vellum menu card with gold foil, were perfect, minimal, yet chic details-

May you forever wear these same smiles!  xx, LS

THE CAST:

“All At Once, Everything Is Different”

“All At Once, Everything Is Different”

Angela and David | Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Angela and David came to Lisa Stoner Events from New York. They met through their work; Angela is a professional A cappella singer and David is an entrepreneur and sound engineer.

Angela seemed almost exasperated at a design meeting and was struggling to identify her wedding style. She exclaimed “I don’t really know how to articulate what I want to see in the design of my wedding, all I know is that my favorite color is red and my favorite movie is ‘Tangled!’ ”

You see, Angela has a legitimate (and relatable) obsession with Disney, and that was all I needed!!! I think we have our design elements, Rapunzel would be jealous.

Angela chose a beautiful white satin gown with a sweetheart neckline and shimmering gold and crystal embellishments.

The gown was complimented by her full, cascading bridal bouquet of white roses, phalaenopsis and cymbidium orchids and a pop of color with her stunning red pumps.

Her bridesmaids wore knee length red gowns paired with bright red bouquets to infuse more of the red into the design.

David and Angela enjoyed a First Look and some time alone in the beautiful Ritz Carlton gardens, before exchanging their vows.

The aisle to the Wedding Gazebo was lined with large antique lanterns and touches of red and white flowers. The gazebo was draped in a soft grey, sheer fabric allowing the stunning floral chandelier to be a focal point behind the couple.

Guests enjoyed a relaxing cocktail reception on the resort’s Tuscany Terrace.

The ballroom was ready for an exciting reveal and was draped in twinkling lights on the ceiling.  In the center was a communal head table that formed a square that seated nearly thirty people.   A tree with cascading orchids and over one hundred pillar candles filled the space in the center of the tables.

The guest tables were set along the softly draped walls and also had trees in the center filled with flowers and flickering candles. A formal place setting with a gold rimmed charger and custom menu card in red lettering completed the tablescapes.

Hailey & Tony | Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine | Hammock Beach Resort

Our Lisa Stoner Events team got to know this wonderful couple as we worked with Tony’s family planning his brother Johnny’s wedding a year or so ago.

Hailey is a beautiful bride who had a vision for a very elegant and sophisticated look and I would say she nailed it! She selected a luxurious, form-fitting wedding gown with an open back and simply embellished crystal waist.

Accenting the gowns simplicity, she wore a cathedral length veil with blusher and carried a lush bouquet with cascading white phalaenopsis orchids and elegant vines. Tony looked very handsome in a classic black tuxedo with a phalaenopsis boutonniere.

A Roman Catholic Nuptial Mass was very important to Hailey and the breathtakingly beautiful, historic Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine, with its 450 year history was the perfect location.

The couple exchanged their vows on the beautiful altar with its elaborate gold and white woodwork with gold statues depicting Christ, flanked by statures of St. Peter and St. Augustine.

After the couple exchanged their vows they took some time for beautiful portraits and strolled the historic streets of St. Augustine.

Guests made their way to the oceanside Hammock Beach Resort. Cocktails, dinner, and dancing were on the South Tower Deck where the reception tables were set in a large U shape.

For her reception, Hailey wanted rich jewel tones, greenery and gold accents offering a nostalgic vibe. Long tables were layered with taupe colored linen and accented with thick ropes of greenery, dotted with deep burgundy, purple and blue floral pieces.

The corners of the U-shaped tables were anchored with tall gold urns overflowing with greenery and the same jewel toned flowers. Gold chivari chairs, chargers with gold bands and custom menu cards with cold tones completed this elegant design.

Hailey and Tony began the evening with their First Dance to ‘Say You Won’t Go’ by James Arthur. This was followed by a very traditional Armenian wedding reception, which included the traditional flag-waving dance and the flag positioned behind the couple during dinner.

Everlasting Love

Everlasting Love

Yonna and Jay | The Alfond Inn

Yonna and Jay met later in life; Jay was a widower, and when they found each other, believe it or not, they actually lived on the same street.

They have worked hard to successfully blend two families of grown children and grandchildren to the point where it is nearly impossible to tell whose is whose. A large extended family vacation before the wedding set the tone for the big day to come.

To that end, one of the things of utmost importance, when Yonna and Jay came to Lisa Stoner Events, was to make sure every family member or guest felt included and loved. They did not want a typical wedding reception; they wanted more of a dinner party where two people happened to get married.


Lisa Stoner Events - Winter Park Wedding - Central Florida Luxury Wedding - Alfond Inn - Abby Liga Photography - Orlando intimate wedding .jpg

Yonna’s gown was custom made by Holly Smith with Tears of Joy Seamstress. Yonna and her sister Star made a number of trips to Miami to source the fabric for this beautiful embellished lace gown.

Jay looked dapper in his classic black tuxedo with bow tie and monogrammed cufflinks.

Family and friends were welcomed with lovely embellished jute tote bags filled with treats and information on the wedding and farewell brunch.

Their First Look was touching, much like our first meeting where they looked lovingly into each other’s eyes, held hands and called each other their Everlasting Love.

Their outdoor wedding ceremony in The Alfond Inn’s Courtyard was held in the round with Yonna and Jay exchanging their vows on a raised platform in the center. The stage for this beautiful downtown Winter Park wedding ceremony was set with clear chivari chairs and oversized white floral arrangements with touches of greenery.

In typical fashion, the couple got a sneak peek of the ballroom décor; but remained in the room to welcome family and friends, rather than making a grand entrance.

For this elegant dinner party, the Alfond’s Ballroom was wrapped in fabric draping and soft warm up lighting and candlelight. Clear glass trumpet vases topped with explosions of white flowers, smaller crystal vases, glass candlesticks and beaded glass chargers lined long family friendly tables.

Yonna and Jay opened the dancefloor with their First Dance to ‘At Last’ and the band kept the dancefloor full throughout the evening.  Guests closed out the night with the cutting of the beautiful four tiered wedding cake.

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.


Galia Lahav - couture wedding gown - modern lace wedding gown - lisa stoner events- luxury orlando weddings.jpg

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.
