If you know my background, I have been an event designer since I was 22. I started in weddings when I was 20 and learned the ropes through hard work and dedication. Fast forward to present day and I still love designing events. I’ll never stop because it is challenging and what I was made to do. My favorite part of design is sharing it with others. To inspire people and explain how I came up with the design. This is one of those moments. Introducing this romantic colored wedding. Yay!
My brother found an amazing girl, in other words, he married up. His bride is a fantastic girl who knew she loved the soft colors of blush, gold and creams but also knew that her fall wedding would need a moody pop. She loved the depth that the cranberry color added as well as embraced the greens from the gorgeous Bella Collina grounds. The result was stunning. Personalized touches were added as well as beautiful people to make it all come together.
Since I am in the business of event design, I knew exactly who we needed to see this come to life. The vendors are the veins that give pure life to your event. Choose wisely. Below are all people I would recommend and you can see why!

Making the vision come to life:
Below each photo is a description of the why and the hows. Happy to answer any questions you may have!
The bride’s bouquet was my favorite floral piece. Atmosphere’s floral knocked it out of the park. Peonies, dahlias and amaranthus… oh my! Expert tip: Don’t skimp on your bridal bouquet. Think about the photos you are going to take and frame in your home. Most likely- it will be you and your spouse and that lovely bouquet.
The men opted for a clean and classic tux route with no boutonniere, which was perfect!. So here are more images on the these amazing bouquets. You can seethe bride’s is the most dramatic and then the bridesmaids all have more condensed beautiful pieces to compliment. Look at that precious flower girl, her floral croun and those glasses. All the heart eyes (PS. that’s my daughter)!!!
Great shot of the ceremony area and my brother looking so very proud! Olivia’s dress is from the Colelction Bridal in Winter Park. Florals on the existing chandelier made for an amazing focal point. There are these gorgeous columns so enhancing what was above was everything we needed.
Our bridesmaid dresses came in the same colors but different tops. Each one complimented us all very well and are from Bella Bridesmaid. If ever there were such a thing as squad goals, this is it!
Onto the reception while the newly weds take their incredible sunset photos. Bella Collina is gorgeous and designing the space is a breeze. Adding these gorgeous french back chairs and pairing them with these gold rimmed chargers with flatware from A Chair Affair. These touches was simple and added so much. The centerpieces were absolutely stunning against the satin linens in the gold vessels.
Wooden signs that can be made at home using the Cricut was fun and easy to create. Simply take a piece of wood and cut it down to size, stain and apply vinyl. I used my at home cutting machine; the Cricut Maker for all of these fun and custom details.
This all green runner is what envious dreams are made out of! We wanted them to be cascading onto the ground off of the all wood farmers tables from A Chair Affair. We mixed rounds with sating linens and sprinkled wooden farm tables through out to break up all of the light and bright.
