Recently featured on Wedding Chicks, this truly unique shoot depicts what it would be like to be wedded in a garden wonderland. Forget small splashes of color, this shoot embraces bright, vivacious hues of popping pinks and outrageous oranges to make a dazzling kaleidoscope on the greenscape of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Perfectly planned by Mobella Events, this shoot was captured by the talented Rachel V Photography.

An absolute paradise for any sweet tooth, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a stunning dessert buffet complete with brownie-stuffed tulips, naked cakes, chocolate-drizzled baked pears, pina coladas, and adorably unique gumball necklaces.  Everything Cake created not one, but TWO amazing and perfect cakes – one bright, bold and whimsical, and one colorful but quietly muted.  Pair the out-of-this-world treats with the extraordinary floral by Lee Forrest Design and rentals and decor by A Chair Affair, and the look is absolutely stunning.

We created a layered invitation featuring bright orange, pink, and green botanical-style florals, colorful butterflies, and bees.  To help tone the bright colors, we included a shimmering pearlized gold layer and a custom-printed contemporary-patterned backing in light blue.  The suite included a custom envelope liner printed with the same blue pattern, and the response envelope was detailed with buzzing bees.  Place-setting menus reflected the style of the invitation.  We added an emerald green hummingbird, kept the pearlized gold as the backing layer, and affixed mini butterflies in a selection of bright colors to the top corner of each menu, which added a unique dimensional touch.

For a huge dose of color, we created an escort card display using die-cut “fluttering butterflies” in fuchsia, tangerine, chartreuse, lilac purple, and sky blue, printed with guests’ names and table assignments.  We created a sweet “Meant to Bee” strung banner that can double as an aisle sign at the ceremony and a decor item on the dessert buffet or cake table.

One of our favorite details of this shoot was the confetti bar!  We created simple die-cut signs for this super fun display of colorful puff balls, paper shreds, and sequin confetti.  Seriously, is there anything more festive and fun than a confetti toss?

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.
