Beautiful flowers abound in this playful, Americana-themed shoot captured by Claire Pacelli Photography and coordinated by Michele Butler Events. Showcasing bright reds, whites and blues, bold stripes, and oversized flowers, this gorgeously modern shoot is truly special. We are excited that it was recently featured on Every Last Detail!

We created a folding invitation featuring wide horizontal stripes in navy and silver foil. Inside, the folder is printed with white and navy stripes, and the invitation is die-cut.  The response enclosure is also die-cut and is contained within a navy satin ribbon enclosure band adorned with a die-cut monogram.  A contrasting poppy print lines the dark blue envelope, for a colorful floral surprise. We created a monogram of the bride and groom’s initials that is featured prominently on both the envelope and the RSVP card.

The poppies, stripes and frames are carried throughout the paper goods. Featuring these motifs, the cheerful escort cards are mounted on folded navy tent cards. Displayed on the brilliant red chargers provided by BBJ Linens, our handcrafted menus also feature the charming monogram on the top header. A red fabric ribbon with notched ends is a perfect custom addition that gives a lovely textural effect, running vertically through the menu.

The exquisite floors of the Wyndham Resort International Drive were the inspiration for the entire shoot! The oversized flowers and intense hues gave birth to the concept for “Red, White and Bloom” and inspired the rest of the decor. Over The Top Rental Linens created the perfect homage to Americana with the dynamic striped fabric background for the ceremony. We also love the eye-popping, patriotic floral arrangements by Atmospheres Floral and Décor which used a veritable garden of roses, tulips, and ranunculus.

For the candy buffet by Sweet Bliss Couture Candy Catering, our custom tags adorn the displays with navy striped ribbon, elegant script and the lovely poppy motif.  A three-tiered wedding cake by Anna Cakes is the perfect finishing touch, with a rich red floral ruffle, subtle lace textures and bold stripes, topped with a single red rose.

{Real Wedding} Amanda & Joe's Classic Botanical Wedding

The Country Club of Orlando was buzzing with excitement on Amanda and Joe’s fun-filled wedding day. Between the rockin’ music from The Blues Factor Band, the cheerful hues of the décor, and the loving smiles on the couple’s faces, every inch of the room was bursting with pure delight. Every eye-catching color and whimsical touch was tied together by the experts at Michele Butler Events. Claire Pacelli Photography captured theses stunning photos, while Eric Horner Films crafted a beautiful video for the couple to look back on for years to come.


Inspired by the beautiful Audubon-style florals, birds, and insects, the invitations were designed to be timeless and romantic. If invitations could grow in a garden, they would most likely look something like this!

Walking into the reception was like entering a garden in full bloom. The floral arrangements by Lee Forrest Design were nothing short of stunning. Swirls of deep violet, orange, peach, and pink flowers danced around the room adorned with beautiful butterflies. Bright and shimmering crystals added that extra sparkle to every eye. The bride and groom even included a form of entertainment for the little guests at the grand affair.



We especially loved this very personal touch – lovely memorial cards to remember Amanda’s mom and Joe’s parents, along with a display of framed photos. The vintage floral design was even carried onto the dinner and hors d’oeurves menus.


We loved the bride and groom’s enthusiasm to share their big day! Our pretty and neat hashtag sign showed guests how to post the images on the web.

Weddings By Carly Ane’s provided the stunning orchids and florals, “Radiant Orchid” (2014 Pantone color of the year) being the color the shoot was designed around. The vibrant purple orchids were mixed with various white accent flowers and crystal vases that shined under Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals‘ uplighting, creating a beautiful image. The glittering, sequined table linens added to the celebratory feel and were provided by Over the Top Linens.  Golden chiavari chairs, picture frames, and silver glitter chargers, provided by A Chair Affair, added some extra sparkle.

The color palette for our custom wedding invitations and paper goods included Radiant Orchid purple, gold, silver, and plum purple, all with glitter and metallic accents.  The folding invitation featured a pearlized gold folder with a glittery purple belly band tied with orchid satin ribbon.  Inside, the invitation was printed in radiant orchid in full bleed with white lettering.  A monogram enclosure band held enclosures in place.

Custom place-setting menus were designed to coordinate with the invitation ensemble, with an addition of a gold glitter backing.  Placed at each place-setting, they added even more color to the table, in addition to functioning as an information piece for guests.

Escort cards were also printed in orchid purple in full bleed, with glitter gold backing.  Favorite pieces included the “Mr. and Mrs.” round chairback banner, printed in plum on metallic gold and strung with a teal ribbon, adorable mini champagne bottle labels, double-sided gold glitter and monogrammed drink stirrers, and specialty signage pieces.
