Earlier in the year, we were thrilled to be a part of a Southern glam styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. We worked alongside talented event professionals, including Bumby Photography and perfectionist planner, Anna Christine Events, showcasing Southern sophistication in the ‘Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be’ theme. The array of soft green, buttery yellow, vibrant peach, white and gold gave the shoot a welcoming atmosphere.

The romantic color palette flowed through our custom invitations and paper goods as we used a folding invitation with a custom, delicate vintage floral pattern on the interior, and a gold foiled monogram on the exterior.  Response enclosures were contained in a moss green satin ribbon-lined enclosure band with die cut monogram.

We carried the exquisite shape of the invitation over to the exclusively designed dinner menus that were nestled into a pocket of white satin on each gold charger from A Chair Affair. Adding a pale green border and a floral element, they matched the place cards that were attached to tea bags with complimenting ribbon. The table numbers were gold foil with a chic vine detail on white card stock.

For the drink and hors d’oeuvres menus, we layered the Southern selections on top of the floral card stock carried over from the inside of the invitations, giving a lovely framed effect to the display. The custom made Arnold Palmer take-home bar favors detailed the recipe for the Southern cocktail.

From the floral arrangements in white milk glass vases with a hand-picked feel, to the intricate detail of the five-tier wedding cake designed by Cut the Cake, to the whimsical flair of the ‘Meant to Be’ pennant-style banner, we loved the Southern elegance of this shoot!

{Inspiration} Modern Purple and Green Wedding

Out with the old and in with the new! This green and purple inspired photo shoot at Mission Inn Resort was a modern oasis of bright colors and even bolder prints. Wings of Glory Photography once again did an outstanding job capturing every detail from the baroque prints to the whimsical centerpieces and everything in between. Anna Christine Events coordinated the look to keep it fun, funky, and utterly breathtaking.

It all started with a simple white canvas. From there, the possibilities were endless! The tables were adorned with gorgeous purple damask print table runners to contrast the crisp, white linens. Flowers by Lesley created the floral arrangements and adorned each clear hanging loop of the four foot tall centerpieces with a single orchid, creating a grand and whimsical display. Plush throw pillows complimented the space with bold chevron and classic damask prints in eye-catching green and purple hues. Hitched Event Rentals incorporated their striking white throne chairs along with ottomans and acrylic chiavari chairs.

Creating the stationery for this shoot was perfectly exhilarating! Our stark white invitations sported a pop of color with a compelling green chevron print on the front and splashes of purple damask on the inside.

The escort cards embodied the best of both prints and colors.  After all, why choose one when you can have it all?

The vibrant colors even made their way to the menus. We kept the look modern and precise, being sure to truly indulge in the green chevron print accented by purple text. The menus were accompanied by a sparkling surprise for the guests. Hello Sugar’s fabulous edible glitter-coated, cake-filled Disco Ball favors left everyone beaming with wonder. Trust me, they were just as delicious as they looked! Wendy Woo Cakes was sure to add to the sweet factor with a cake too spectacular to put into words.

{Real Wedding…and News!} Misty & Nelio's Blush Pink + Gold Shabby Chic Vow Renewal

Last May, we were excited to be a part of Misty and Nelio Miotto’s vow renewal, which was featured in Orlando Wedding Magazine this month! If you can’t get your hands on a hard copy, check it out online here. The feature highlights the romantic opulence of the event, showing that a vow renewal can be just as exciting and celebratory as the first wedding.
