C. M. Burns Times Two - Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

The Wedding of Christy Marie to Christopher Michael took place
at the Lake Mary Event's Center on a beautiful autumn evening.
Chris's best man, as always, is his father.  The men wore chocolate
tuxes and ivory ties.  I love the look on dad's face. 
Christy's carried an ivory rose and feather bouquet with a bird's nest veil. 
The girl's wore antique gold lace dresses, gold shoes and pearls.  Their
bouquets are plum calla lilies, antique lavender roses, and purple lisianthus.
The aisle was decorated with purple ribbon and kissing balls on shepherd's
 hooks.  Their was a lovely butterfly release after the ceremony.
A beautiful sunset on the lake, congratulations to our newly weds,
Mr. and Mrs. Burns.

Green and White Wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center

Green and white were a crisp combination in the bride's flowers
of roses, freesia, stephanotis and hypericum.  A perfect bouquet
for his blue eyed bride.  Kari wanted bling added to the center
of her stephanotis as well as crystals for that extra sparkle! 
 The water on the lake at the Lake Mary Events Center was as clear as the
 sky making green and blue a testimony to a perfect combination.
Black dresses on the bridesmaids created a sharp contrast for their posies.
Such beautiful detail in Kari's wedding gown. Nick matched up nicely in his tie, vest & dimples!

Breathtaking!  Photos by Fat Katz Photography of Orlando, super job.

A green candy bar, so sweet.
and tables set with kissing balls, sweets and kisses for everyone.
First Dance gives the couple gazing time.
Love was in the air and on the ceiling.
and then it was time to party.
I Do, says it all with a delicious cake by our local Publix bakery.
Congratulations to Kari and Nick Maxwell who are coming up to their first
wedding anniversary on October 24th.  We really enjoyed working with
 this couple and a special thank you to the bride's parents Angie and JC as
 well as Kari's sister Mindy for making the day flawless.

Heat Tolerant Wedding Flowers - Bouquets That Can Take The Heat

When a fresh cut flower no longer has a water source it forms a dry patch on the
end of its stem to seal in the moisture much like our own body's protective system. 
When there is extreme heat involved, a fresh cut flower out of water will show signs
of wilting in 20 minutes. As we approach Florida's extreme summer temperatures,
 the fragile flowers like tulips and runumculus as well as low heat tolerant flowers like
 hydrangea could wind up a disaster.

Flowers that can take the heat of summer, tropical blooms of Proteas, Orchids,
Ginger and Roses, bold and  beautiful!
 A King Protea commands attention in this pink rose and ruscuss bouquet.

Sands of Time - Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

A flawless day presented itself to this sweet couple, Chad and Ellen, who exchanged
vows at The Lake Mary Events Center.  Chad will soon be serving his commitment
 to our country and we wish him well.
 
A little information about them: their dads have been best friends since
 high school. Chad and Ellen grew up together and vacationed at
New Smyrna Beach every year with their families.  Chad proposed
to Ellen at the exact place the two families stayed and as a special touch,
thesand used in the mason jar candles was from that very beach.
Mason jars filled with wild flowers were hung on the chairs down the aisle
The wildflower theme was carried through to the reception.  Guests enjoyed the
services provided; amazing food from Puff 'n Stuff Catering, music
from Marc Burgess Productions and photography by Gary and Marti

      Congratulations to Ellen and Chad Peacock.

Lavendar Rose Bouquet - Lake Mary Events Center

The view from the back of the Lake Mary Event's Center was breathtaking
for Lindsey and Justin's nuptials.
Guests witnessed the bride and groom take their vows under a beautiful arch
of hydrangea blooms nestled in among lush green foliage.  Green satin fabric
 was used to accent the lower half of the arch.
The green and white theme continued with white hydrangea and ribbon on the
aisle chairs.  Lindsey's dress is so beautifully accented with the bow on the back.
The bridal bouquet was made of Cool Water Roses, freesia, stock, lisianthus
spray roses, green hypericum and hydrangea.
Her maids carried bright exposed stem bouquets to match their fuchsia dresses.
The January ceremony had perfect weather with a giant setting sun.
The reception was held inside the main ballroom with a view looking out over the lake.
The bridesmaid's bouquet were used as centerpieces for a high vase, low vase
look and the guests were none the wiser.

Gone to the Birds - Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

What a delight!  Welcome two new members of Lake Mary's Sandhill Crane
 population who just happened to make an appearance at The Events Center
 for Karen and Antony's reception .

Our beautiful bride looks flawless in her strapless gown.  She carried
orchids, tulips, dahlias and roses. 
 
Anthony is looking dapper in his tuxedo
The foyer table was decorated with a blooming citrus tree wrapped in burlap.
We added a bird's nest and a tag that read 'Live and Grow'
We decided to have a little photo fun with our couple so we brought an antique chaise lounge.
Look at Anthony being all GQ!  He's a lady's man!
The reception colors were just as vibrant!
Baby blue delphinium and salmon colored roses called 'Impulse' were used
 with hydrangea, hypericum berries and Orgonia foliage with curly willow for height. 
Mother Anita wore a blue dress the same color blue as the delphinium. 
We used low vases and high vases for added interest.  The table numbers
complemented her theme perfectly, set in wood cookies with a votive back bird.
The cake was gorgeous!  All white with white gum paste flowers.
This is such a great shot.  On the left you see Karen and Anthony and on the right
you see Anthony's brother Andrew and Karen's sister Kristen.  They look like twins!

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Monteleone.  It was truly a perfect day.
