It seems only appropriate to jump into February with an oh so gorgeous fête, so we are going to kick start this month of love with an elegant soiree by Kallima Photography that will have your head spinning from all the pretty! The brides ruffly Melissa Sweet gown is enough to make me go into a tizzy, and when you add sparkly Jimmy Choo‘s to the equation – I turn into wedding mush. It’s all in the full gallery for you to gush over, so chasse on over for even more!
From Rebekah of Kallima Photography… Laura and Jon’s classic and elegant wedding was held at the Country Club of Orlando, the most un-country club-like venue we have ever seen. The ballroom rivaled one at the Breakers Palm Beach, with extra high ceilings and gorgeous chandeliers, and we truly feel like this venue is a well-kept central Florida secret! Both living and thriving in New York City (bride works for Tori Burch, groom for 2(x)ist) Laura and Jon seated guests at tables named after their favorite areas of the city. The orchid, rose, and peony centerpieces were truly works of art, and Kilwin’s chocolates were given to each guest as favors. The ornate cream on cream-colored wedding cake was topped with gorgeous pink peonies. The live band literally kept EVERY guest on the floor ’till the bitter end, and the groom’s brother/best man serenaded the crowd on his ukulele as a special treat and tribute to Jon. The bridesmaids made a weekend out of the wedding, all staying in Laura’s huge family home right on the water in Orlando. Her one-of-a-kind Melissa Sweet gown was an absolute stunner and paired with gorgeous crystal embellished Jimmy Choos. Laura’s sister and maid of honor, Shelby, stayed close by her side most of the wedding day and had every guest crying during her toast. The sisters are very close. Truly a family-celebrated event, and an absolutely gorgeous one at that.
