February 21st, 2009 TWO WEDDINGS, not a big deal, I have done seven on a Saturday. But the big deal for me that makes me so proud is to have the opportunity to marry a second daughter for each of the family's (in this and the above profile) both on the same day. My first entry about this very special day will be about the Masi's. I just absolutely love Rita Masi. I think on January 1st, 2008 I must have been one of the first vendors she called to tell me that her second daughter Erin was getting married. With all the excitement she was ready to start the planning. In February I finally got to meet Erin at the Ritz Carlton Wedding show (The Ritz was where her sister got married and where she wanted to get married). So Erin and I convinced mom to let her focus on her studies so that she could pass the bar with flying colors. She did just that in June (CONGRATULATIONS) so we started the planning soon after. Below are the images of a beautiful wedding that has a lot of meaning to those that were involved. I also thought it would be fitting to profile Rita's first daughters wedding which follows the first set of pictures. Erin's bouquet was created with some of the most exotic orchids available, japphet and cattleya orchids accented with stephanotis and dendrobium orchid blossoms.
The female attendants carried all hand wired green cymbidium orchid and white dendrobium orchids.
A wonderful family picture of the Masi's and of course Rita is looking FIERCE!
Boutonnieres created with a single green cymbidium orhcid blossoms artistically embellished with bear grass wrapped with bouillon. No green floral tape here.
The ceremony was held at the beautiful Rosen Shingle Creek with a lush aisle of red rose petals.
Florence urn arrangement of ivory roses and white dendrobium orchids sprays, curly willow branches and natural greenery flanked the ceremony backdrop. These were later moved to the reception.
The tables were dressed with ivory Bichon, maize lamour colored chair covers with a gold lamour bow all provided by BBJ Linen. Center of each table is a 28" palace vase filled with water and topped with an arrangement of hydrangea and roses.
Just loved the purse.
Love the tastefully done sweet table complete with Godiva Chocolate.
And of course none other than Tracy Marini from Eventfully Yours keeping all the troops in line. Tracy is on the far left, I am third in, Jen Rosenthal from Rosen Shingle Creek and Tracy's assistant, Ashley (here wedding was profiled earlier).
And Rita's first daughter married at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando November 2006. Looking back, I think orchids are a favorite with this family.
The gazebo with the back flanked by arrangements of roses, open cut calla lilies and orchid sprays.
Vineyard Grill hosted the reception. A horseshoe shaped head table with three lush arrangements created with roses, orchids sprays, open cut calla lilies, green button mums and complimented with seasonal floral accents and natural greenery.
Although an intimate affair with 3 guest tables, no detail was overlooked. The guest tables had a lush and breath taking arrangement atop 3-foot dragon wood. The head table was dressed with moss bichon with a fern shimmer sheer overlay.
