Bella Collina – Tuscan Elegance

Daniel and Jessica’s day could not have been more perfect. On a sunny Saturday in April, Montverde provided a stunning backdrop on a day this couple will never forget. The wedding was filled with deep, jewel-toned blooms ranging from an extensive arch piece to their reception centerpieces. We loved the bride’s adventurous side that allowed us to add some lesser seen product, such as the gorgeous red Amaranthus, Celosia as well as use one of our favorite flowers – Peonies! This elegant wedding matched the venue’s “Spirit of Tuscany” perfectly and combined to create one of the most gorgeous events. We are so glad we got to be a part of their day!

Orlando Science Center – Dangerously Romantic

 

When a bride comes to us with an inspiration that includes succulents, rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus, they have our attention. With an inspiration photo of a bouquet, we created a stunning bouquet for her and her maids dressed in mint. They stood in front of a white arch with floral of lavender, white and greenery. The cake was topped with a bride and groom dinosaur, yes you heard that right! We dressed the cake with cascading floral, succulents and greens. This was a dangerously romantic wedding that we were thrilled to be part of!!

Mission Inn-Turquoise Romance

When you can feel the love between your bride and groom, it truly makes our job easy! For this gorgeous turquoise wedding, the groom made sure every single detail was done correctly. He was very meticulous, because his bride was finishing up school and he took the reins on the wedding so she didn’t have to worry about a thing. To start, we created the wonderfully fragrant brides bouquet with o’hara garden roses, freesia, and ranunculus and to add texture we added brunia and seeded eucalyptus.We carried that flower selection through to her brides maids bouquets and on our birch wood arch design.

The reception was glowing from wall to wall! For the centerpieces, we filled tall cylinders with twinkle lights so when the lights we dim the room would sparkle. The floral arrangements on top were created with white hydrangea, freesia, and blush roses. We covered the fireplace with candles and lights. However, the room wouldn’t have looked the same without those gorgeous turquoise linens from Over the top!

Cypress Grove~Chic and Classic

We were just tickled to work with one of our favorite Tickled Pink ladies, Michelle Moyer, on her most special day. Cypress Grove created a beautiful backdrop for her gorgeous wedding. We had fun using some of Bluegrass Chic favorite flowers such as the panda anemone, sweet fragrant Juliet garden rose, berries, and succulents of course! This whimsical bouquet was filled with many of the ivory and peachy/blush elements to create a timeless image. The reception and tables where some of our favorite. There where a mixture of wood slices, garland, and bud vases that gave a very chic and romantic feel. What an an amazing day with an fantastic team!

Elegant Brunch – Ladies of Light

When the best photographers in town get together for a brunch, they do it right! They hire the amazing Southern Traditions and Two Sweets Bake Shop to cater the event, and ask us to provide florals.

Peachtree House -Rustic Elegance

When people ask us what our specialty is, we say Rustic Elegance. Sometimes that is hard to understand as those words usually don’t go together. Although this wedding will help everyone understand how elegant, rustic can be.

We set the stage at the beautiful Peachtree House in College Park. The bride and groom choose the fabulous Chris Glenn to capture the entire event. The details from this wedding surpass almost any other we have done before, styled by Mobella Events. From the floating floral monogram, ceremony cross, driftwood centerpieces, gold candelabras, Spanish moss and orchid aisle, to the Star Wars guests. Yes, you heard me right… Star Wars Darth Vader and a couple of Storm Troupers to entertain the guests. This wedding is one for the books for sure!

Mission Inn Marina – Babies Breath Beauties

We loved the elegance and simplicity of Stephanie and Brian’s wedding!  They held their special day at the Mission Inn Marina Del Rey.

We designed Stephanie’s lovely bridal bouquet with babies breath and blush & white gerber daisies.  We designed her maids’ bouquets with babies breath and white gerber daisies.  For their ceremony, we designed babies breath inside her hanging lantern jars with streaming ribbons.  For their reception, we scattered babies breath around candlelight centerpieces for half of their guest tables, and then placed babies breath lantern jars for the other half.

We hope you enjoy these photos just as much as we did!

Bella Collina – Intimate Wedding

When you get a call from Sokha from Apsara Events for an intimate wedding at Bella Collina, it sounds like a dream. The bride and planner sent us her inspiration and we designed this elegant and romantic wedding ceremony and reception for her closest friends and family for a destination wedding.

The bride wore a stunning lace gown and her maids in blush dresses of different styles. The bridal bouquet was cascading and consisted of peonies, garden, standard, and spray roses, ranunculus, anemone, eucalyptus and ferns. The maids carried a simple hand-tied bouquet of the same floral. The bride was inspired by a half circle ceremony design of pampass grass we had done at Bella Collina a few months before her wedding. With it being out of season, we created the same style in greens and sprays of white and green floral that was later repurposed to the reception tables.

After the cocktail at the reflection pool, they made their way to the wine cellar for an intimate reception, family style. The table was set with lush floral garlands of garden, standard and spray roses with greens. Gold mercury votives scattered down the dark wood table for sparkle. Each place setting was set with a menu and a single rose bloom for that special touch. The cake was a gorgeous buttercream with a gathering of soft blooms and rosemary. The finished their night with dancing in the atrium and a beautiful glittery sendoff.

We hope you enjoyed reading about this stunning wedding at Bella Collina as much as we enjoyed every minute to design it.
