White Hot Fun

White Hot Fun

Not too long ago our Lisa Stoner Events team was asked to plan an Orlando wedding industry event for our colleagues at The Knot. 

We chose  a “White-Hot” theme and we loved every aspect of it.   White  really lends itself perfectly to Welcome Receptions and provides for a fun wedding weekend and also to summer events.  

Start with a beautiful location; in this case the all-white tented space at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando was the perfect blank canvass for our design. We started with a dramatic entrance feature: a show-stopping white balloon arch combined with lush white greenery.

The next design element was the layout of the space itself. A beautiful white orchid chandelier hung over the dance floor area in the center of the tent.  An abundance of modern lounge furniture was spread across the room, providing ample seating for guests.

Our design team incorporated multiple  food stations, enticing the guests to sample delicious, lite, bite sized samplings while mingling and dancing. Speaking of dancing, we were sure to bring in an amazing DJ to keep the dance floor packed.

Another element not to be missed was a refreshing signature cocktail, uniquely presented from a feature bar, by our energetic bartenders.  The mojitos were refreshing and plentiful.




For some interactive entertainment we drew guests into the party with a vibrant acapella flash mob and a fun photobooth with props.

 


Last, but certainly not least, we cannot forget about the sweet tooth.  Guests were treated to some delicious, miniature sweet treats.



Remember to invite some stylishly dressed guests to help with the authenticity of the theme.



We know your family and friends will have as much fun with a fabulous White-Hot Party as our colleagues did.

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

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.

The couple’s beautiful white, ribbon wrapped five-tiered wedding cake was a focal point, towering about the guests seating on a white riser and topped with a crystal monogram.
