Glitter Wedding at The Citrus Club

And today loves, we’re in for a treat, because this glammed-up fete from Amalie Orrange Photography has enough sparkle to last us all week long. Inspired by one of my personal faves, the sequin chevron linens from La Tavola, every inch of this celebration is covered in glittery goodness. Get your shine on in the gallery!

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.

Raspberry + Striped Wedding Inspiration

Three things that are on my favorite list are present in this beautiful bit of wedding inspiration from Amalie Orrange Photography: stripes, that beautiful raspberry color, and a naked cake. In my humble opinion, the shoot, dreamed up by Ashley Stapleton of Table 6 Productions, featured the trifecta of perfect wedding details, and I’ll love it forever because of it!

Whimsical

From Amalie Orrange Photography… Ashley from Table 6 productions came to me with an amazing idea for a shoot, a bright fresh raspberry palette with a nice bold black and white stripe, I was sold! 

This shoot really started with raspberries! Ashley knew from the start she wanted to incorporate that beautiful raspberry color and she loved the idea of pairing it with something bold like black and white. The cake was a huge part of the shoot for her, she really wanted the cake to be bold, fresh and romantic and we think the naked cake with fresh berries captured all those elements perfectly in one.

From the stunning bride… Trevor and I met in college where we were both studying their passions. Though our fields are very different, we found something familiar and inspiring in one another. After five years as a couple, Trevor proposed to me under the same weeping willow where I played as a child. Our wedding was a reflection of what matters most: Our southern roots and the timeless values that will guide us on their new journey as husband and wife.

From the Down the Aisle Weddings & Events… We absolutely adored this couple, and are elated that they loved every detail of their big day as much as we did.

Ashley and Trevor are a true vintage couple! Their home, fashion, and likes are all influenced by a classic, throwback style, and that is what we wanted to bring into their wedding day, our plan was to create an aesthetic that was truly romantic and soft, drawing on a color palette that accents the beauty of our bride and groom and the rich settings that surround them, making for visually arresting images of this timeless couple.

During our first consultation, Ashley said she wasn’t set on a color scheme or flowers, but rather wanted every decorative element to compliment their venue, an historic inn in the heart of downtown Orlando. Being familiar with the venue’s existing decor, we suggested doing a bridal bouquet consisting of natural cotton and some blush blooms and assorted berries. She loved the idea, so with this in mind, we suggested a mix of ivory, blush, and soft yellow florals offset with rich gold accents. We are in love with the bridal bouquet– it was amazing to see our vision brought to life so beautifully!

As the sun set, the DJ kept the wedding guests dancing the night. The cake, had a lovely vintage cake topper selected by the bride and was accompanied by a selection of mini desserts that were a big hit with the guests.

From 5Thirteen DesignsGet ready to feast your eyes on the beauty of this styled shoot! We designed this shoot with an aim to incorporate chic and rustic elements in a quaint southern setting. Choosing three colors (pink, green, and yellow) within the citrus family, we focused on delicate and elegant details accented with gold. We featured a real life couple who are so passionate about each other you could hear the air sizzle between them.

The exquisite farm table was set with a delicate lace runner anchored by delightful flowers that faded from green to yellow to pink. Simple white chargers embossed with a delicate floral pattern were highlighted by gold cutlery, watercolor inspired napkins and paper menu. Gold chiavari chairs were adorned with handmade lace caps to bring a decidedly elegant and chic quality to the setting.

Our invitation suite which included invitations and RSVP cards, seating cards, paper menu, and table number was created using pink, green, and yellow in graceful watercolor strokes that incorporated the metallic gold juxtaposition to the delicate nature of the suite.

Resplendent florals included roses, asters, hydrangeas, orchids and so much more.

The bride donned an empire waisted slim a-line dress with delicate beading around the bodice and a gorgeous rhinestone broach attached to the sash. To complete the look we pulled in a lime green fascinator with a birdcage veil that complemented her red hair and low braided up do perfectly.
