Planning a wedding can be a daunting task even for a seasoned professional. That is why I am a big advocate in hiring a coordinator, a really good coordinator that stands the test of time. Especially when the planning for floral and decor starts a year out. Tracy Marini of Eventfully Yours introduced me to Ivette and her mom about a year before her November 2009 wedding at Lake Mary Event Center. I feel blessed that Tracy introduced me to this dynamic duo because once again they really let me help them plan the right floral and decor for this fall wedding. Below are some of the images that Cory Callahan Photography captured. I will be sure an post more as they become available so you can appreciate all the details of her wedding.
Ivette carried a bouquet with mango calla lilies. Mango calla lilies offer a wide range of color hues that best capture a crisp fall day.
St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church is such a beautiful setting. The two large altar arrangements would later double as stage decoration for the cake.
Each tree was a lush arrangement of roses, orchids, safari sunset, bells of irleand, alstroemeria, fresh fall foliage and curly willow branches.
A mixture of tall and short arrangements are really a smaller version of the altar arrangements. Amber colored hanging glass votives hung from the thick dragonwood branches with more amber votives at the base to bring a warm fall glow to the tables. Each place setting included a beautifully inscribed menu with brown satin ribbon and a fresh orchid blossom. Gold chiavari chairs, gold chargers and copper pintuck linens completed this elegant setting.
I am anxiously awaiting the night time image that this picture certainly doesn't capture. The cake table and ceremony pieces were aglow from the gold glass mosaic votives elevating the cake. The candle light from the ceremony trees coupled with the amber uplights created the perfect feeling of a sunset on a crisp fall night.
