From Amalie Orrange PhotographyCourtney and Noah had such an amazing, emotional and drop dead gorgeous wedding at the beautiful Alfond Inn in Winter Park. 120 of their closest friends and family gathered together to celebrate their big day, and it turned out to be such a great sunny day despite the 80% chance of rain that was anticipated. Not a drop fell, it was clear, perfect and there was much love was all around. Courtney and Noah included there dogs in the wedding and I must stay I had a little doggie crush on Lola, hence all the pictures:) Courtney wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and the cutest Kate Spade shoes! Courtney also made, that super cute LOVE sign you will see at the reception, yep she’s crafty and gorgeous. All and all it was one word STUNNING!

From The Bride…Noah and I met when we were neighbors in the same apartment complex. We lived two doors down from each other! Kismet I must say. Noah proposed on a random week night he told me that he had to run an errand for work. He talked me into riding along with him. This errand happened to be on Park Ave in Winter Park and as we were walking he stopped in the rose garden in the park and got down on one knee. The errand was all a lie that he used to get me to the park. I was so surprised!

Noah was funny, laid back and handsome. Noah said that Courtney was loving and was there when you needed her the most. She also amazes him and will get a laugh out of him for the most random of things!

From Lisa with E EventsWhat I particularly loved about working with Courtney is that she trusted my suggestions with the use of mixed metals, {we used silver and gold} and different textures and coordinating colors with the linen , rather than just one linen and napkin color. Also, if you can, drape or conceal service entrance walls! I think you can see how it can make all the difference! The layout on the lawn made for an intimate ceremony, and “layering” the table with sweet details is always key for me. {Linen, table runner, charger plate, napkin fold, menu card, bow accent, etc.}

Her intimate yet sophisticated wedding beautifully captured by Shannon Lee Miller made us all as giddy as if she as our best friend, and you can see all the reasons why here.

From The Bride…My wedding day was quite a dream and I could’nt wait until the day that I would be able to share it with you. My wedding and reception were held at a historic Winter Park home turned museum in early June. There were about 75 guests made up of family and friends in attendance making the day seem very intimate and full of support from those who are closet to my husband and I. I knew that I wanted my wedding to be extremely sophisticated yet simple, and I achieved this by utilizing the romantic setting of the beautiful Casa Feliz. The classic brick home against the pops of color from the lush landscape created the perfect scene from day to night. We made hand painted signs for all of the food and tables using old picture frames and chalkboard paint, and well as acclectic vintage frames to display pictures aroung the venue. I have always had a love for black and white strips and sparkles( being the girly girl that I am) so I knew that I needed to somehow incorporate both of those into the day. The sequin table runners that I chose were eye catching yet classic, and really popped next to the black and white striped table cloths that were scattered throughout the home. Because I opted for a lot of neutral colors throughout my wedding, I had bright, full bouquets with various shades of pink and coral peonies and garden roses, with pops of bright greens in the bridal bouquet. These colors fit perfectly as center pieces and decoration throughout the house. To accompany the center pieces we used over 100 candles ranging in sizes, each placed within an antique or thrifted candle holder in different shades of gold. On most tables, we were able to find vintage lanterns from different antique stores in both Winter Park and Chattanooga (where the groom is from.) The food was truely amazing and the caterer could not have done a better job. We used Arthurs Catering and chose to do chef stations featuring naything from prime rib and mashed potato bar to grilled shrimp mini tacos with freshly made guacamole. We did small portions of everything so the guests were able to go station to station and try all of the wonderful food options. Overall, It was a magical night that I will never forget, and I hope you, too, can see the charm and love from this special day.

Vintage Inspired Winter Park Wedding

Hands down, this darling duo is one of the coolest couples you will ever virtually meet.  I mean, they have a pet pig. His name is Mr. Hamilton Banks and, well… that’s awesome.  Then they threw one seriously gorgeous wedding, which happened to include a mashed potato bar, crazy cool chalkboard signs from the Chalk Shop and a one smile-filled moment after another captured by Ben Sasso.  See it all here.

And a super sweet film from White In Revery for even more lovely…

From the Bride… David and I have been together since 2009. He asked me to marry him with a clever geocache he had a friend help him set up in Savannah, GA. I hunted all over for the cache while he photographed. Once I finally found it, inside was a little handwritten note that said “Katie, will you marry me?”  For a moment I was convinced I had found some other lucky girl’s proposal – but then David took a knee and I was instantly in tears.

I had never dreamed of my wedding day when I was a little girl, so when David asked me to marry him in October 2012, I quickly realized what a task it would be to plan. I planned the entire wedding weekend myself – from the rehearsal to the reception.  It was a lot of fun to spend a year hunting for all the little perfect details and made the wedding feel even more personal, as silly as that sounds. We also DIY’d quite a few of the larger projects, it was fun to work with David to create a wedding that would truly be unique.

David and I are both Florida natives and wanted something that matched both of us in that regard. We decided to do a vintage Florida styled wedding and were so excited with all of the fun details we could incorporate. Our dance floor had a small orange tree at each corner, our guestbook was vintage Florida postcards in an old lazy susan postcard holder – and on that table we displayed photos which were hung on twine inside a frame David built with vintage farm wood. We bought old doors which David crafted to stand upright and I cut strips of ribbon to hang between them. Our colors were an array of sherbert orange, coral, and peaches, and the bridesmaids all picked their own dresses which fit their style, yet melded together perfectly.

My stepfather, who has been in my life since I was 13, and my dad both walked me down the aisle. From the ceremony to reception location we were transported in a vintage Model A with a driver who had the kindest heart.

Guests played corn hole during cocktail hour with boards we painted to fit our color theme. We handed out bags of boiled peanuts, regular and cajun style, and oranges as favors; David created the stamp that we used to hold the peanuts. We served Shrimp and Grits, had a mashed potato bar, and apple cobbler to accompany the Cinnamon Swirl Jack Daniels cake. Speaking of cake, I secretly hid a small black pig to surprise David, modeled after our own adorable pet pig, Mr. Hamilton Banks.

The orange trees and gorgeous flowers in our venue set in front of the brick and barn door walls really brought the entire event together. Our wedding was in December, but since it’s Florida, it was a breezy 85 degrees and our wedding brought the Spring comfortably into winter.

I couldn’t have asked for better vendors or a more beautiful day to have our wedding, nor a more perfect way to start a marriage.
