2015, the year of fabulous weddings and couples!
We have met some of the sweetest couples getting married this year and am so happy that they each have their own distinct style. This is what makes my job thoroughly enjoyable. I see a lot of new venues opening up for our clients! Noah's Event Center in Lake Mary, a beautiful hall with outdoor brick courtyard, Brambletree Estate, a gorgeous home in Sorrento and many more.
We are so very lucky to have a large number of venues in Orlando for our distinct couples.

What a magnificent day it was for Brandy and Adam as we celebrated their wedding at this beautiful private residence last Saturday. Clear skies, perfect temperature, an abundance of pumpkins and a home with the most gracious owners you will ever meet. I was honored to help this beautiful couple with their wedding alongside some of the best vendors in town. Jordan Weiland captured this photo and I LOVE it! They are perfectly in love.

Tim and Amanda were married on a gorgeous day at Disney's Swan and Dolphin Hotel with a reception held at Fulton's. I loved the style of this wedding and was so happy to finally meet this beautiful bride! Reverend Tim Herring was the minister and Randy Chapman was the photographer. Catherine Way was the harpist for the ceremony. Congratulations!!!
I was so excited to be asked to help with Brittany and Seth's wedding in Destin, Florida this year. They have always had a connection to the ocean and found the perfect beach for their special day. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for them and as the sun set, it could not have been more perfect. I worked with some amazing vendors in the area...The Venue at Crystal Beach, Autumn with Hello Beautiful Photography, RSVP Rentals supplied the lighting, tables and chairs and amazing bartenders, Megan Davis was our "dance all night" DJ and Tammy from The Eventful Planner gave us a wonderful menu. The best part of the evening were the sweet toasts from their family and friends. Brittany and Seth are definitely loved. All the best to Mr. and Mrs. Hoskins as they travel to Hawaii for their honeymoon!
Yes, I am incredibly lucky to have been able to help two amazing couples this past weekend! Both of them crazy in love and some of the nicest people I have met. Chadia and Richard were married Saturday night at The Crystal Ballroom and chose black magic roses and orchids for their bouquets. I loved doing the ceremony flowers for this event. Beautiful setting and amazing staff. Magic Occasions Catering gave them a wonderful dinner that night and I can't say that I have ever been to a wedding where the guests started dancing immediately! Yes, right after introductions, the dance floor was full. They knew how to have fun!! A long happy marriage to Mr. and Mrs. Gagot! Thank you Kellie from Live Happy Studios for the amazing photos!
Sunday night brought a completely different look for Penny and Julia's rustic, vintage wedding at The Winter Park Farmers' Market. I had SO much fun helping them and happy that they were so involved with making the decor to bring their vision to life. So many meaningful details and it all came together perfectly. I loved doing their flowers using hydrangeas, roses and babies breath. The dessert table was divine and they had so much fun dancing the night away. Congratulations to this amazing couple!
Loving our engaged couples getting married next Summer! They all have such different styles and we are excited about all of them. We are going to create some amazing weddings! Congratulations to Karyn and Jackie, Melissa and Nick, Emilie and Justin!
Wow, where do I start?
October has turned into quite an amazing mix of incredible weddings. We start off the month with Chadia and Richard! They are having a glamorous, romantic wedding and reception at The Crystal Ballroom...then onto The Winter Park Farmers' Market for Julia and Penny's gorgeous vintage wedding! I cannot wait for both of these! We will then be heading to Destin, Florida for a blush filled, romantic beachside wedding and reception for Brittany and Seth. Disney's Swan and Dolphin is our next destination, designing floral and decor for Amanda and Timothy's wedding! Our last wedding of the month is for Jami and Jesse having a New Smyrna Beach wedding, dockside. The perfect end to the month with this ocean inspired event! Congratulations to all of our couples!! We cannot wait!
What a great weekend last August! I was so happy to have these photos from Lora Rodgers Photography. She pays such great attention to detail and made everything look amazing. It rained cats and dogs before this ceremony and then dried up before the guests arrived.
We were so lucky to design, coordinate and officiate this wedding! Lyndsey Olsen and I had a great time helping Brittany and Christa. Congratulations!!
So much fun at The Orlando Science Center for Jeremy and Amanda's wedding in March! They both looked amazing and I loved the color and style for this event. I was able to design and coordinate and it turned out to be a gorgeous evening. As always, It was great working with John Michael Catering , Funny Faces Foto Booth and I cannot wait to see the photos from photographer Norman Yu! Congratulations to this special couple!!
Congratulations to newlyweds Wendy Wai and Ran Liu! I was so excited to do the flowers and decor for this fabulous wedding at Disney's Swan Hotel. The reception was held in the Garden Grove Restaurant and was followed with incredible fireworks photos. As always, it was great working with Reverend Tim Herring and harpist Christine MacPhail! Photographer Misty Miotto took the most amazing photographs. I really love my job!
It was a wonderful weekend for Josh and Lauren and we were so excited to coordinate this event and design the florals for Lauren and Josh's big day! They had a gorgeous wedding at Heaven Event Center. The photo booth was awesome, the chocolate fountain flowed and the music was perfect. Darrah Shea took these incredible photos. So talented! Needless to say, the guests had a great time. They were such a sweet, sentimental couple. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!
Love, love, love this company! Wanting a vintage look for your wedding or event...this is who you want to call. Courtney with Dishie Rentals.
Design each table with a different look and of course, I will add floral! So incredibly worth it.
I am a wife, mother, wedding planner, floral designer, artist and a lover of all things modern and vintage. I'm a bit on the unconventional side and my life is filled with all things wonderful.
