Breathtaking weddings are made of details; not just the beautiful details, but when you are truly lucky, the details that are meaningful as well.
Recently, our Lisa Stoner Events team had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Andy to plan their spectacular downtown Orlando wedding.
Their wedding ceremony was held at the historic First Methodist Church of Orlando with its shimmering marble and colorful stain glass altarpieces.
Sarah wore a beautiful Romona Kevesa strapless tulle ball gown with a beaded lace bodice and sweetheart neckline.
For her bouquet, Sarah wanted orchids. As a schoolteacher, the orchids held a strong meaning; her students frequently gave her orchids as gifts. Her beautiful cascading white phalaenopsis bouquet, the perfect accent to her tall slender frame, and was a detail that carried through the entire wedding.
Sarah’s bridal party wore soft pink bridesmaid’s dresses and carried handtied bouquets of off white and antique pink roses, white dendrobium orchids, and a white phalaenopsis from her bouquet.
Andy and his groomsmen chose a classic look, but had a little fun with some uniquely personalized socks.
Another beautiful detail, that went unnoticed by many, was found in both Andy’s boutonniere as well as his mother’s corsage. Included in each of their personal flowers was a small piece of one of his father’s shirts. A silent, personal remembrance as his father had passed away unexpectedly shortly before the wedding.
As guests arrived for the wedding reception at the amazing Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, they enjoyed a little fun during the cocktail reception with personalized cocktail napkins printed with Fun Facts about Sarah and Andy.
To say that Sarah and Andy were speechless after seeing the transformation of their reception venue might be an understatement.
This sleek, modern, almost industrial space with floor to ceiling windows and unparalleled views of downtown Orlando was softened with draping, warm lighting and a color palette of light grey and pink.
A breathtaking chandelier of flowers and soft lights was installed as a focal point over the dancefloor, centering the space. The dancefloor was flanked by a long head table on one side with a soft geometrically patterned linen, clear glass cylinders of candles, silver mercury glass and soft pink and white floral bouquets.
Round guest tables balanced the other side of the dancefloor, draped in light grey linen accented with arrangements of white hydrangea, soft white and pink roses, orchids and dusty miller. Clear glass chargers with silver rims, custom designed menu cards, crystal chivari chairs, and a romantic five-tiered wedding cake of quilting and lace completed the design.
