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.

Stacey & Ricky | This Ballroom Reveal Is What It’s All About !


Lisa Stoner + Waldorf Astoria Orlando Wedding + Central Florida + Wedding Planner +Orlando

What can I say about this gorgeous couple that hailed from Bermuda to offer me the distinct honor to plan and design their traditional, yet chic white wedding with perhaps a *splash* of color thrown in by yours truly?

I think Stacey’s initial reaction at her ballroom reveal here says it all, no? *wink


Lisa+ Stoner+ Waldorf+ Astoria + Wedding + Orlando + Wedding + Planner

But– there was so much more to their wedding than that. It was emotionally, romantically and thoughtfully charged wedding and the design touches were only just a part of that.

Hence, the importance of video!

Pour yourself a glass (or a mug!) and do yourself a favor, and watch these sweet highlights from Stacey and Ricky’s gorgeous wedding day!

Stacey & Ricky | White Wedding Details Will Never Go Out of Style

Classic Elegant White Wedding Details | Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Stacey and Ricky came to Orlando for their elegant Central Florida destination wedding, from Bermuda where they reside. Stacey’s vision was a classic, elegant, all white wedding and the beautiful Waldorf Astoria Orlando offered them an unparalleled backdrop for this destination wedding with an effortless vibe.

Ricky, who reminded me of Pitbull, and I jokingly referred to as “Mr. Worldwide” anxiously waited, in his stunning navy tuxedo with black satin shawl color, bow tie and buttons, for his bride’s arrival.

Stacey’s figure was accented by her beautiful strapless mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline and full flowing train. Escorted by her mother she carried a handtied white bridal bouquet of creamy, soft, white roses.

Stacey’s something blue, that paired with Ricky’s tuxedo, was a fabulous pair of blue, pointed toe, Manolo Blahnik pumps with a crystal buckle.

The Waldorf Astoria Orlando’s Signature Island set the stage for a private sunset wedding ceremony with sweeping views of the resort’s waterways. Guests were greeted by towering white arrangements of white hydrangea, roses and stock in oversized silver urns. Simple white garden chairs with no other aisle décor focused attention on a massive clear acrylic wedding arbor, crowned with a lush arrangement that carried through the hydrangea, roses and stock with small touches of greenery.

The transformation of the resort’s ballroom wowed Stacey and Ricky. Draped in white, with the one pop of color I was able to persuade them into including, a fabulous watercolor drape; which was set with a lounge for guests to enjoy between dance sets by a DJ they brought from Bermuda, to offer their guests an authentic Bermudian feel.

The unique round white dancefloor was surrounded by tables wrapped in beautiful white linen. The guest tables were also layered with clear glass chargers and lush groupings of clear glass, gold and silver toned candle holders as well as a mix of tall silver vases and low arrangements of white hydrangea, white roses and white tulips.
