Romantic French Inspired Wedding Shoot

It’s hard to pass up a day of pretty captured at the hands of Amalie Orrange Photography (read: it can’t be done), but add in a team of Orlando’s finest vendors and a bundle of French-inspired details styled to perfection by RW Events and that’s cause for a party.  Think bright pops of fuchsia florals from Lee Forrest meets some serious sweetness from The Sugar Suite.  See it all here.

From Amalie Orrange Photography… I have always had a love for everything French, and I loved the idea of marrying the French blue and white traditional china with a whimsical pallet of pinks. My mom collected most of this type of china while I was growing up and I always loved the beautiful patterns on the plates. I gathered together some of Orlando’s most talented, creative and amazing wedding professionals to help me bring my vision to life. Katie from RW styling was a key player in this shoot, she listened to my ideas of bringing whimsical and traditional together to create a fun and cheerful welcoming of spring. We called the shoot “Mon Amour” which means “my love” in French, and thought it would be sweet to tie in subtle French accents with the crepe cake that I made, cute bicycle and the French chalkboard signs thoughout.

The Sugar Suite made a bow cake that is cute as can be! I could see brides going wild over this pretty and feminine cake. Lee Forrest knocked it out of the park with the gorgeous florals and that wreath was amazing!! I hope you enjoy and are inspired by this fun shoot, because we had a blast putting all of the details together.

From Amalie Orrange PhotographyI loved Erica and Chris’ wedding, it was beautiful, glamorous, and most of all fun. Here is a bit about how they met from the bride Erica…We were just two college kids going to a happy hour with our friends at The Knight Library bar near campus (UCF). It all started when I walked into the bar to meet up with some other friends who were accompanied by another boy who I did not recognize. His blonde hair and blue eyes coupled with the fact he was wearing boat shoes, had really drawn my attention. He immediately introduced himself, politely, as a gentlemen would and invited me to play a game of flip-cup (somehow those normally don’t go hand-in-hand). From there on, the rest is history…

From The Bride…I was completely surprised by Chris’ proposal. To set the scene, he is a die hard UCF fan and we had a home football game vs Southern Methodist University on Saturday, November 3rd. It was Chris’ birthday and I decided to throw him a tailgate party and have our friends and family attend his birthday celebration before the game. Normally Chris is shotgunning beers with friends and enjoying himself a little too much, but this day felt a little different. As lunch was consumed and we were about to cut the “supposed” birthday cake, Chris began to thank everyone for coming out and enjoying the day with him. An unusual turn of events happened next. Chris grabbed my hand and had me come cut the cake with him. As my eyes focused in, I could see “Will You Marry Me?” transcribed on top of the chocolate icing. Before I could acknowledge what was happening, Chris went down on one knee, glared into my eyes and told me that all he wanted for his birthday was me. Before I could collect my breath and the couple skips of my heartbeat, I couldn’t help but give him a fat kiss before I said yes!

I have been dreaming of my wedding since a little girl. With the help of my wonderful wedding planner, Kristen Johnson with An Affair To Remember, we were able to put my vision into reality. With my vision set forth, it all came to the forefront when Kristen showed me a sample of gold sequin linen’s. From there we sat down and drew out my equation to building the dream wedding I always wanted; think of trendy, yet classy with a touch of southern charm.

Stemming off my vision, I would refer back to the gold sequin linens as my favorite design element. Not only were they a great talking point for the wedding reception, but they had fit perfectly with our venue (The Citrus Club). Every part of our reception had a detail; from the gold animal place settings defining the guests meal, to the vintage framed mirrors displaying our cocktail list. We even included a ‘pawty favor’ dog treat, which was a special homemade recipe from our pup, Dailey. We tried to create an ambience that included a special touch everywhere you looked.

Gold spray paint was our best friend over the past 18 months. In addition to previously mentioned items, we also made our table numbers, bathroom signs, introduction banner and confetti toss bags, just to name a few.

What was your favorite part of your wedding day? The entire day was memorable; it is hard to chose just one! I still replay our wedding each day in my head. Besides our actual wedding ceremony at St. James Cathedral, seeing our reception venue for the first time was absolutely breathtaking. The culmination of efforts between Kristen, our vendors and us, blew away my expectations. An added element, which I kept secretive for the prior 8 months, was inviting a surprise guest to our reception. With Christopher being a huge UCF fan, our college mascot, Knightro, made his appearance by catching the garter toss, which was a huge surprise once Chris turned around.

From Mallory, the Bride… Brad and I had huge crushes on each other before we ever met. We went to the same gym for over a year and saw each other almost daily, but we were both too shy to introduce ourselves. I eventually moved to the opposite side of town (and a new gym). A couple of years later, we happened to run into each other at a local watering hole. We finally had the courage to talk to each other that night, and we have been inseparable ever since.

Our wedding day was everything we dreamt it would be. From the bowtie napkin folds, to the vintage tufted chairs and settee, to the mint green armoire we used as our cake table and the vintage Cadillac getaway car, every detail oozed vintage charm.

One of my favorite wedding projects was putting together a display of all of our guests’ wedding pictures. We were able to get a wedding photo from every single married couple that attended ours. It was a huge project (thank goodness we had almost two years of planning time), but they payoff was a beautiful display of over 40 photos of the people we love most on their own special day. It was so rewarding to watch our guests find their wedding photo and instantly be brought back to their very own wedding day.

One of the most memorable parts of the evening was honoring my grandparents during the reception as they celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary that night. I introduced my grandparents to our guests and shared their story – how they moved their family of seven from the Philippines to the U.S. but not before spending more than seven years apart from my grandfather after he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. I explained that when my grandparents were married fifty-five years prior, they had borrowed everything from the veil to the bouquet from their church. I then dedicated my bridal bouquet to my grandmother because she deserved to have her own. We all toasted to my grandparents’ accomplishment and watched as they shared their own special dance to the song Unchained Melody, sung by my lovely sister.

Brad and I waited for so long to meet each other, wondering silently and curiously about each other. When we look back now, we know that it was meant to be that way. Neither of us ever will ever forget that feeling of butterflies that we used to get as we would pass each other in the gym, and we will always know how lucky we are to be in each other’s lives in the capacity that we are today. It may have taken some time to get there, but when we were both ready to meet our other half, just like our wedding day, it all happened so seamlessly.
