This gorgeous Bride and her pretty ‘maids might take the award for best dressed bridal party ever. Not only did Georgia’s girls embrace the mismatched and pattern trends, but some of them also rocked some fabulous rompers. And tropical blooms from KITANIM, a floral design and event company, brought the whole look together perfectly. See it all from EvanR Photography in The Vault!

From Kitanim…February 27 was a perfect Miami winter day for bride and groom, Georgia and Tom. Casual and chic tropical was the design direction we were given as the floral design team and we ran with that motif utilizing tropical protea and fuchsia dendrobiums for a pop of wow color. The bride’s mom, Mary, is a special lady, saving and hand packing and color coding approximately 500 vases that were collected from Georgia’s childhood home. If you look closely on the rustic tablescapes, you will see trinket remnants from Georgie’s glittered Halloween costumes over the years. The bride wore a gorgeous delicate yet powerfully hued hair halo. Fairchild Tropical Gardens allowed the retro Food Truck to make its appearance as dinner fare for the guests who dined under romantic bistro lights and headed indoors to the reception area for dancing and more fun. Bridesmaids wore shades of green textured dresses and rompers as they walked down the aisle. With a multitude of vendors, the planner really orchestrated the group especially in her curation of antique furniture for the reception lounge.

Alison and Josh’s wedding had me at the staircase ceremony, but then totally blew me away once I learned that this was in fact a luxurious elopement with only their nearest and dearest on hand. With just 4 guests in attendance, their Big Day dreamed up by Blush By Brandee Gaar doubled as an intimate getaway that we’d vie for an invitation to. Captured by Kayla Barker Fine Art Photography we’ve got it all in The Vault!

From Blush By Brandee Gaar…Alison and Josh’s wedding was truly a luxury destination event! They treated their guests to a long weekend in Orlando beginning with a trip to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on the night of their arrival. On Friday, all of the guests were treated to spa treatments and a fabulous private dinner at Ravello. The big day, which fell on Halloween and was also the anniversary of the couple’s first date, was an absolute dream! With only 4 guests, we had a lot more flexibility within the resort and we chose to make use of the magical grand staircase which is the centerpiece of the resort! The dinner took place in one of the lakeside villas perfect for a small gathering of friends and family for dinner and fireworks! It was truly a magical evening at the Four Seasons Resort!
