Modern Multi-Cultural Wedding

Modern Multi-Cultural Wedding

Tehsina and Ghadeer | Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

“A smile is always in fashion” is the most perfect quote to describe this fashion forward Orlando multi-cultural wedding celebration.

Seeing Tehsina and Ghandeer smile at each other at their First Look is to know just how much in love they are. They quite literally smile, giggle and look lovingly at each other all the time

An Orlando destination wedding was perfect for this cosmopolitan couple. Tehsina is the biggest Disney fanatic and has been since she and her family traveled here from Canada when she was a little girl. Her family traveled from Canada and England with Ghadeer’s family traveling from New York and the couple traveling from Boston for the wedding planning.

The elements of this chic stylish wedding design reflect Tehsina’s Muslim heritage as well as Ghandeer’s Arabic family background.

Her stunning Oscar de la Renta taffeta gown with fleur sequin and floral lace overlay, an illusion neckline, and three-quarter length sleeve were all beautiful touches for this modest gown.

Tehsina carried a long cascading bouquet of Italian ruscus, white ranunculus and several dozen fragrant stephanotis; the perfect accent to her simple, elegant wedding gown. The best part? It was an exact replica of her mother’s bridal bouquet that Jesus with Raining Roses expertly created. The look on Tehsina’s mother’s face when she (surprise!) first saw the bridal bouquet is what a wedding planner’s dreams are made of!

Even after a First Look and some private time together, Ghadeer, looking smashing in his Tom Ford tuxedo, smiled lovingly as his bride made her entrance escorted by her parents.

Beautiful contemporary arrangements of giant white calla lilies and monstera leaves in tall glass vases filled the aisle to the Ritz Carlton’s gazebo, draped in soft, flowing white fabric.

Modern Lucite boxes topped with geometric cubes and cascading white hydrangea and hanging amaranthus flanked the couple as they exchanged vows.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the Tuscany Terrace while the newlyweds took a sneak peek at the luxurious, modern reception décor.

Simple black linen allowed the modern metal and glass risers filled with cylinders of floating candles and breathtaking white calla lilies to take center stage. Tall contemporary arrangements connected long guest tables surrounding the custom black and white dancefloor.

Tehsina and Ghadeer made a grand entrance with a Zaffa, a wedding march of crossed swords, dancing and drums; an ancient Arab tradition.

Rebecca & Robert | Chic Modern Garden Wedding | Four Seasons Orlando

This modern, stylish Miami couple love traveling to Orlando for some respite, and especially the Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. So, what better place to host a sophisticated, modern, garden destination wedding?

From the time of their First Look near the Four Season’s beautiful garden trellis’, it was easy to see how much in love Rebecca and Robert are by their loving glances; and the smiles lasted the entire evening.

Lisa Stoner Events collaborated with award winning decorator Jose Graterol and created an innovative design that transformed the Four Seasons Orlando’s Grand Ballroom into a stylish, unique wedding reflective of this modern couple.

Rebecca and Robert’s wedding ceremony, ‘the most sacred 20 minutes’ of their lives, welcomed guests into a lush, modern garden. The couple exchanged their vows under a raised wooden arbor embellished with lush ferns, hanging amaranthus and pops of color with soft multicolored hydrangea as well as pink, fuchsia and red roses.

To make the space feel more intimate and bring the modern garden wedding inside we designed a grass lined aisle lined with boxwood hedges, modern mirrored risers and brass lanterns. Dark wood chiavari chairs complimented a dark wood toned backdrop of clean modern draping and lighting in a shadowy branch pattern pulled everything together.

Rebecca and Robert’s ear-to-ear smiles turned to jaw dropping smiles as they got a sneak peak of the Grand Ballroom. What began as a lush modern garden wedding ceremony exploded into a chic, modern, multisensory garden conservatory.

Jose Gratersol’s attention to detail is inspiring and impressive, our collaborative design layered sophisticated, stylish touches from floor to ceiling; from modern lighting patterns on the walls to a unique dance floor surrounded by clean modern lounge furniture.

The focal point of the space was a large modern double sided bar enveloped by boxwood hedges and a garden urn overflowing with lush greens and pops of bright colors. The surrounding guest tables were layered with an assortment of stunning textured linens, glass and gold accents, candles and a wide variety of modern floral designs in gold metal garden orbs and bright monochromatic spheres. Clusters of guest tables were anchored by several fifteen-foot-tall arrangements designed with oversized garden urns and overflowing with lush greenery and floral accents in shades of green.
