Amanda & Pete | Stylish and Fresh Wedding

Amanda & Pete | Stylish and Fresh Wedding

The Hammock Beach Resort, Palm Coast, Florida

When Amanda first started discussing the overall design of her wedding with our Lisa Stoner Event Planning team, she conveyed that she wanted a wedding that was elegant but still approachable, stylish and fresh.

Amanda and Pete share a love for the beach, so The Hammock Beach Resort was the perfect location for a luxurious Palm Coast wedding weekend; with the vastness of the Atlantic ocean as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony, and ocean breezes and a breathtaking view for their wedding reception.

They both quickly embraced the idea of dark green, leathery tropical monstera leaves as a design thread that carried throughout the wedding with shades of white and gold as accent colors.

In keeping with the elegant, stylish and approachable feel, Amanda selected her wedding gown from Hayley Paige’s Blush collection. Her ivory beaded ball gown had a scalloped sweetheart neckline and spaghetti strap detail with a full, cascading tulle skirt. Beautiful drop earrings, matching bracelet, hair comb and stunning Badgley Mischka satin heel evening shoes with hand designed crystal embellishments were the perfect accents to this amazing gown.

Amanda carried a cascading white bouquet of lush white phalaenopsis, full round white ranunculus and fragrant white freesia against the backdrop of monstera leaves; personalized with five lockets of family photos. Her bridal party carried similarly styled bouquets with white dendrobium orchids and monstera leaves.

Not to be left out, Pete and his groomsmen looked sharp in their classic black tuxedos accented with phalaenopsis boutonnieres and monogramed cuff links.

After a First Look and spending some time for private portraits, the couple hosted their ocean side wedding ceremony on Hammock Beach’s Lodge Lawn. Classic white garden chairs, two simple white columns with cylinder vases of monstera leaves and white orchids, the Atlantic Ocean and hedge of palm trees provided the perfect backdrop.

Monstera leaves were used as an accent under the table settings in addition to the tall vases that drew your eye up to the billowing white ceiling draping.

Lia & Lisa | Non-Traditional Black Tie Wedding

Lia & Lisa | Non-Traditional Black Tie Wedding

Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando – Roof Top Deck | Johann Strauss Ballroom

 

 

Lia and Lisa are the best and I loved working with them; they are a wedding planner’s dream client because they put so much trust in me and really followed my lead.

They wanted a glamorous, non- traditional, black tie wedding and this clean modern design with a plum and grey color palate really set the stage for the chic, urban wedding.

The Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando in downtown Orlando offered beautiful outdoor locations for stylish cityscape portraits and wedding party photographs.

The Grand Bohemian’s rooftop pool deck set the stage for an elegant sunset wedding ceremony.  The white wedding tent was layered with white draping and white carpeting accented with beautiful crystal chandeliers and crystal chivari chairs. The only pop of color was the brides’ beautiful hand tied aubergine calla lily bridal bouquets.

Lia and Lisa were awestruck at the Lisa Stoner Events team’s transformation of the Grand Bohemian’s Johann Strauss Ballroom.

Soft room draping, elegant up lights and pin spots highlighting the centerpieces and wedding cake; as well as two long tables anchoring the space, flanked by round guest tables really set the stage for this clean, modern plum and grey wedding design.

Plum linen alternated with grey and white geometric patterned linen were layered with clusters of white floating candles, rectangular mirrored boxes and tall trumpet vases filled with lush tropical greenery tying in some of Lisa’s Puerto Rican heritage. Tiny pops of dark plum calla lilies added a touch of elegance and pulled in the colors of the bridal bouquets.

The ladies started the evening with their first dance to “Truly”, by Lionel Richie and danced the night away. Guests enjoyed cake pops, sweet treats, and late night wedding munchies in addition to their wedding cake.
