Black and Gold Winter Wedding in Orlando

As the owner of a letterpress business, this bride is a girl after my own stationery-loving heart. She put her creative touch on every bit of this winter wedding, transporting guests away to a gold sequined wonderland, all captured by Stoffer Photography and White In Revery. So let’s grab a cup of coffee, a blanket, and dive into some glam winter inspiration right this way.


From The Bride… The day I got married turned out to be one of the coldest days in Florida. As someone who prefers scarves, boots, hats and coats, the temperature drop turned out to be a sweet surprise. From the beginning, Andrew and I had wanted to get married outside and we’d found the perfect place and now we had great weather, if a little chilly.

Bella Collina is a picturesque, Tuscany inspired club house situated in the hilliest part of Central Florida. The buildings are made of these beautiful golden hued cobblestones which proved to be a lovely backdrop for our ceremony and reception. Since the weather dropped, we ended up getting a large, clear tent which actually enabled us to get a giant chandelier to hang on top of our dance floor. Not to mention kept the heat in.

By the time guests arrived, it was in the mid-forties. At the last minute we added hot apple cider to be served along with an assortment of cheese, breads and crackers. I’m told it was a life saver.

For the wedding, I wanted a classy, gold sequined affair. The groomsmen wore black suits and ties (Andrew wore a gold tie with his black suit) while my maids wore different dresses in varying shades of gold. I encouraged gold sequins. Everywhere. The cake table had a gold sequined table cloth, my bouquet was wrapped in it and several of my maids were donning it.

I’m the owner of a design + letterpress studio based in Winter Park, Florida. I had so much fun designing our wedding invitations and made sure to include lots of gold foil ;)

My husband is from Portland and he is a coffee enthusiast. We dated long distance and every week I received a batch of his favorite coffee from Cannon Beach. I designed coffee bags with our wedding date, monogram (just the letter D) and Andrew letterpress printed them right in our studio.

A word about how Andrew and I met… About a year ago, a sweet girl named Katie moved to Florida from Seattle for a boy. Just a month after she left everything back home and trekked across the United States they realized it wasn’t meant to be. It was at that point she needed to make a decision; should she move back or attempt a life here in Florida? She decided to stay and promptly looked for a roommate.

I was that roommate. We were introduced randomly at a bar and I decided that she’d make a great roommate; sweet, ordinary, and heartbroken. We spent that first month becoming friends, watching lots of Pride and Prejudice and eating dark chocolate. It was then she told me about her cousin Andrew, who lived in Portland. I was a little concerned at the distance, but Katie gave my email address to Andrew and it wasn’t long before he and I wrote novel length emails back and forth…the emails turned into phone calls and the phone calls turned into FaceTime dates. We talked every day for two months before he came to visit me on July 2nd. We met at the Orlando International Airport. We got engaged that September and were married in January. If you knew me better, you’d know I’m a raving sentimentalist and a romantic. I couldn’t have asked or expected a better love story.

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.
