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.

Katie & Rich | Romantic, Glamorous Black Tie Wedding

Katie & Rich | Romantic, Glamorous Black Tie Wedding

Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Katie is a bit of a girly-girl, who wanted a black tie, glamorous, romantic, girly wedding – check, check, check and check!

When someone comes to Lisa Stoner Events and wants a girly and sparkly wedding design, infused with amazing guest experiences, my heart does a little Cha-Cha and we had an instant connection.

The Ritz Carlton Orlando at Grande Lakes set the perfect stage for this Orlando black-tie wedding. The resort’s grand, white column gazebo set against the lake was swagged in soft white fabric that swayed in the evening breeze. Accented with a dazzling crystal chandelier, we marked the entrance with huge urns atop stone columns, overflowing with clusters of white hydrangea, soft full roses, a hint of blush, and accented with seeded eucalyptus.

A small round table under the gazebo held crystal picture frames of family members no longer with us.  Crystal candlesticks with white memorial candles and a family heirloom bible for the ceremony scripture readings added a personal touch.

Welcoming guests to an outdoor ceremony with an iced beverage as they arrive is such a beautiful inviting touch.

Dressed in his classic black tuxedo, accented with a simple white rose boutonniere and white pocket square, Rich waited patiently for his bride’s arrival.

He did not have to wait long for his beautiful bride, who made her entrance in a stunning form fitted, drop waist gown with a white a beaded sweetheart neckline and accented with hundreds of shimmering crystals falling into a full, flowing ball gown. A soft, loose, cascading bouquet of white cottage roses was the perfect accent.

The setting Florida sun shimmered across the sparkling chandelier as Katie and Rich exchanged their vows and departed under a shower of fluttering white confetti.

This Ritz Carlton Ballroom with its beautiful stone arch entrances, crystal chandeliers and soft rose-colored silk wall coverings was the perfect setting for a glamorous, feminine wedding reception.

Katie and Rich were in awe as they viewed the ballroom for the first time.  Billowing white fabric divided the room into two distinct spaces:  dancing and dining.

The first space offered an oversized white dancefloor adjacent to a chic, modern, lounge area with a semi-circular sofa, cocktail tables with luxurious linen, sparkly accents and soft rose-colored lighting.

The dining space was designed with a round table in the center of the space, adorned with a stunning crystal vase topped with a lush full arrangement of white hydrangea and soft blush roses. Radiating from the round table were four long guest tables.

Hilary & Rob | Glamorous White Lace Wedding

Hilary & Rob | Glamorous White Lace Wedding

Hilary & Rob | Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes

Hilary and Rob are HUGE University of Florida fans; so much so that when it came time for their engagement photos they arranged for photos alone in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium!

But when it came time for the wedding there were no Gators colors. Hilary wanted the Lisa Stoner Events team to design an all-white décor for the wedding. The bridal party wore white and the guests were also invited to come in white attire.

Hilary started the day with wedding portraits in an all-white Ines DiSanto (Eva) figure flattering mermaid style wedding gown of contemporary lace; accented with a simple crystal embellishments from Solutions Bridal in Orlando. She carried a soft, loose, handtied bouquet of lush white peonies, soft full white roses and white stephanotis with trailing white wavy satin ribbon.

For the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony at the Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, they chose the beautiful outdoor gazebo overlooking the lake, golf course and headwaters of the Florida Everglades. White garden chairs complimented the white gazebo which was adorned with tall glass cylinder vases with single specimen bouquets containing white hydrangea, clusters of white tea roses, lush white peonies, white phalaenopsis orchids as well as huge cymbidium orchids.

The aisle was bordered with beautiful scalloped waves of soft paper flowers in a variety of hues of white, made by Hilary and later repurposed adding dimension to the long guest tables at the reception, making them look oval in shape.

Prior to the start of the ceremony Hillary added a matching A-Line Ines DiSanto (Theia) overskirt with a full train, adding a sheer cathedral length veil for a completely different look; complimenting Rob’s handsome, classic three button black tuxedo with stephanotis boutonniere.

Guest were welcomed to a beautiful wedding reception that carried on the theme of all-white décor and modern lace. Guest tables were overlaid with white lace linen, paired with classic gold rimmed white charger plates with custom menu cards.  The menu cards echoed the gold chiavari chairs and gold floral containers wrapped with white satin ribbon and crystal embellishments with white flowers incorporating many of same flowers as the ceremony, with the addition of white larkspur for texture.

The focal point of the wedding was a show stopping paper flower wall we incorporated as a backdrop to display their beautiful four-tier off white wedding cake adorned to reflect the modern lace applique and satin buttons of Hilary’s gown. Placement of their sweetheart table with lush orchid arrangement and custom carved name piece allowed guests the perfect view of the newlyweds, their wedding cake and the flower wall backdrop.
