{Real Wedding} Lake Nona Country Club: Faye and Greg

Faye and Greg, a couple from Coventry, England, love to travel and chose Orlando, Florida, for their destination wedding. Lake Nona Golf & Country Club’s plantation-style elegance and Florida’s palm trees and sunsets provided a magical atmosphere for the couple’s big day. NuVisions Photography photographed the event, and the talented staff at Blush by Brandee Gaar coordinated the wedding.

Covered in pastel table linens and glass vases crowned with roses and hydrangeas, the reception looked like a page from a fairy tale magazine. For dessert, the newly weds chose cupcakes with white, pink, and purple toppings, creating a colorful display.

Because this was a destination wedding, Faye and Greg wanted a romantic, vintage “airmail” themed invitation, so we used blush pinks, caramel, and chocolate browns on speckled white paper, and created a collection of custom “airmail” stamps that each reflected their love story.  The hand-sewn booklet had a passport-style feel, loaded with travel information, accommodations, and wedding activities.  For added personalization, each invitation was individually custom-printed with the guests’ names.

The reception papers reflected the couple’s elegant theme and passion for travel. Printed on creamy, speckled white and layered onto oatmeal-colored paper, the paper goods used various landmarks from around New York, including Ellis Island, Rockefeller Center, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., The Spice Market Restaurant, and Central Park. Every place was a destination for a vacation Faye and Greg took previously, during which Greg proposed to Faye. Obviously, she said yes! And we’re so glad she did!
