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.

Frozen in time, our young bride puts on her wedding pearls moments
before walking down the aisle.
 We used the colors of fire.  It was very exhilarating against their light
gowns and allowed Christina and Jason's personalities to really shine through!

wrought iron candelabras and unity candle table were made by Christina's father. 
They were perfect for this  venue and were accented with flowers.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Cruz. . . .much happiness.

The Elegance of White - Wedding at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel

The elegance of white is clean and simple like an empty canvas waiting for a
 purpose. For a moment it feels like a dream,silent and still and waiting. 
We had the honor of being a part of Stephanie and Tory's wedding day held
at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel in Downtown Disney.  White carpet, hundreds
 of white rose petals and clusters of  hydrangea were befitting the Princess
Stephanie.  If only our old garden plant stands could talk.  They have witnesses
many a union and just keep getting better looking with age.
One of our favorite and highly recommended Photographers is  J.R. Stirling Photography.
Six lovely bridesmaids and sister Nichole as the Maid of Honor wore champagne
dresses. Everyone carried chocolate orchids and Sahara roses wraped in brown
velvet with bronze wire accents.  The bride's bouquet included Renior mini calla
lilies and Stephanotis.  Her flowers complimented her white Roman draped gown.

Congratulations to our beautiful couple Mr and Mrs Carli. The groom's parents are
Debbie and Brent who just happen to be our most beloved clients.
