Classic And Colorful

Classic And Colorful

Alexandra & Andreas | Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Allie and Andy had originally considered getting married on a cruise but decided not to so that more family and friends could attend the wedding. 

Our Lisa Stoner Events team worked on a few design concepts with Allie and Andy and eventually landed on the perfect fit. Andy comes from a Greek family and incorporating a classic olive branch theme throughout the wedding was just the right touch.

Allie chose a beautiful lace ballgown with a cap sleeve and a full chapel length train cascading from a crystal hair band. She chose bright flowers including peonies and roses with touches of greenery for the bouquets.

Andy wore a classic black vested tuxedo with a white rose boutonnière and a pocket square.

The entrance to their ballroom wedding ceremony started with oversized arrangements of brightly colored flowers atop wrought iron columns. The aisle of white chivari chairs framed rows of petals and a custom monogrammed aisle runner, bringing in the olive branch motif.

A luxurious wedding arch of foliage and brightly colored flowers, flanked by lighted trees stood out against a background of soft grey draping.

Andy’s smile was ear to ear as he waited for his bride’s arrival; the two exchanged their vows and sealed them with a kiss.

Allie and Andy took a sneak peek at the reception design while guests enjoyed the cocktail reception. To say that they were overwhelmed might be an understatement.

The space for dinner was separated from the dance floor with a crisscrossed draping and soft lighting. A communal table large enough to accommodate the couples’ immediate family of 46 anchored the reception space.

Clear chivari chairs and warm grey tone linen allowed the tabletop design and wedding cake to pop against the backdrop. The brightly colored floral centerpieces, pillar and votive candles in metallic containers filled the tables.

Charger plates layered with grey napkins and custom menu cards with olive branches completed the look.

Allie and Andy’s first dance to ‘Fall Away’ by Bobby Lord, Allie’s grandfather, was just the beginning of a wonderful night of dancing.

Sarah & Michael | Stylish Pink and Slate Wedding

Sarah & Michael | Stylish Pink and Slate Wedding

Isleworth Golf and Country Club

Sarah and Michael met at school in Texas and both are Geologists, studying the earth’s physical structure and substance. So, in order to design a wedding that rocked their world, Lisa Stoner Events and our curated team of Central Florida Wedding Professionals really focused on textures and organic elements.

Sarah chose to wear a beautiful Hayley Paige, moondust organza, A-line bridal gown, with a beaded neckline and sheer open back.  She carried a stunning textured bridal bouquet of huge King Protea, full light pink roses, blue Scottish thistle and white anemone framed by soft grey dusty miller. Her wedding party wore soft blue-grey bridesmaid’s dresses and carried bouquets that matched Sarah’s.

The lawn at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere was the perfect location for their wedding.  A simple, late afternoon, wedding ceremony was held facing the club’s freshwater lakes with native Florida grasses and cypress trees as the backdrop. Sleek white boxes topped by crystal trumpet vases of lush greenery accented with unique soft pink flowers added a pop of texture and framed the couple exchanging their vows.

After sealing their vows with a kiss, guests showered the happy couple with confetti.

Following the ceremony, Sarah, Michael and their wedding party took portraits against the backdrop of the lake as well as on the club’s lakefront dock.   Guests watched while enjoying a cocktail reception from the outdoor terrace.

The Isleworth Ballroom was the perfect setting for this wedding; the architectural elements of the columns with soft white lighting, the vaulted ceilings with hand cut wood beams, wrought iron accents and rustic lantern chandelier touched on all of the elements of texture.

Round guest tables anchored the room with tall crystal vases with an explosion of white dendrobium orchid stems. In the center of the room were long, rectangular tables with low, flowing arrangements tying in the same flowers as Sarah and the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Our team tied everything together with slate lamour floor length linen, matching napkins and seat cushions on crystal chiavari chairs.  The tables were accented with chunky pillar candles, mercury glass votive candles, textured glass chargers with a gold band, hammered gold napkin rings and dark slate custom menus.

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

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!

Laura and Rory’s Alfond Inn Wedding


Alfond Inn Wedding

Laura and Rory tied the knot this past fall with a classic, luxurious ballroom Alfond Inn wedding. Although the two love birds currently call North Carolina their home, Laura grew up in the Melbourne area of Florida not too far from the elegant Winter Park boutique hotel venue. However, it was at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina, that she met Rory. The two went on to practice law, and the rest was history!

Despite the Muted Tones, This Wedding Was Anything But That:

Naturally, the two North Carolina lawyers approached planning their wedding in an analytical way. But, they soon found that they couldn’t help but fall in love with the charm this Florida venue had to offer. They decided to get married in Florida, and I was more than excited to help give them their dream wedding day. With Laura’s love for muted tones and thistle in the floral design, together we were able to create a breathtaking event that was anything but subdued in nature.

Needless to say, their beautiful outdoor courtyard ceremony was as grand in style as it was intimate in feeling. I loved putting a modern twist on their classic design with the layout of the ceremony seating to create a more intimate feeling. The couple opted for guest seating in a circle around them as they tied the knot so that everyone had a close seat to take in the moment with them. Beautifully abundant arrangements from Fairbanks Florist‘s Lana Faulkner lined the backs of chairs. All together, the Alfond Inn’s lush, green courtyard complete with the white and greenery filled arrangements gave their ceremony a classic look that is truly timeless.

Meanwhile, their indoor ballroom reception adorned with silver and grey accents was like a fairytale ending to the big day with charm that truly romanced their guests. The lavish centerpieces, abundance of candles, and twinkling wall installations transformed this space into a luxurious ballroom fit for royalty. Not to mention, the clear chiavari chairs paired with glass accents were as perfect as the fit of cinderella’s glass slipper. The glowing princess in her Calvet Couture gown had her breathtakingly beautiful ballroom to twirl the night away in with her sweet prince. And, that’s just what they did!

My heart completely melted when I saw these images from Vitalic Photography. There is not a single photo where Laura and Rory weren’t completely glowing and grinning from ear to ear. One of my favorite moments of the day was when I had the chance to give Laura her a private ballroom reveal. As you’d expect a lawyer’s personality to be, Laura was quite analytical throughout the entire planning process. However, by her own admission, she was found herself pleasantly disarmed by how emotional she became during the big reveal. She was finally able to see how the all details and plans over our time with one another finally came together, and how simply lovely it all was.


Wedding Couple's First Dance

 

Laura and Rory, I am so honored that you chose me to be a part of your truly charming wedding day. You are absolutely the sweetest couple and were such a joy to work with. I hope to have more couples who radiate as much pure love as you in the future. I wish you all the happiness and well wishes in the world as Mr. and Mrs!
