Colorfully Elegant Casa Feliz Wedding

We’re always on the hunt for fresh new color combos here at SMP, and today’s Casa Feliz fete from Best Photography might just be one of my fave yet. The burgundy, navy and gold ‘maids mixed with pink, red and violet florals make for a soiree that’s bursting with happy hues—eclectic but complimentary, and oh-so-stunning. Make sure to dive into this vibrant day before you head off into the weekend and don’t miss the film from Black In White Films!

From Best PhotographyCasa Feliz has to be one of our favorite venues! From it’s gorgeous rustic old style architecture to the beautiful interior decor, it really is one heck of a place to get married. Everything about Chris and Ashton’s wedding was breathtaking! Between all of their hard work along with some incredible vendors, everything turned out perfect! Oh and let’s not forget all of the beautiful Anthropologie accessories Ashton incorporated! Chris and Ashton have a way of making everyone feel needed and loved, and those amazing qualities really shined on their big day.

From the beautiful Bride… Chris and I met while I worked for a non-profit. I was running our annual gala and Chris had volunteered to help through his company, AT&T. At the event, I asked if I could get a discount on my phone bill (which was not granted!). Chris sent an email the following day assuring me he still could not get me a discount but maybe he could take me to lunch instead. After a 2 hour lunch date, we knew something special was going to happen.

We spent endless hours of Pinterest-ing, blogging and magazine reading to come up with the overall concept for our wedding. We knew we wanted a theme that fit the beautiful venue space while also incorporating our favorite things. It was a special moment to share what we loved with who we loved.

The wine box at the ceremony was something we really loved. We both wrote a love letter to each other and sealed them inside a box with a bottle of wine. We were instructed only to open it on our first big fight and then drink the wine and read the letters to remember why we’re in this together.
We love food trucks so to have a cupcake truck at our wedding something fun for us – and our guests!

We loved Josh and Rachel’s photography style from the beginning! Having a team that understood the intricacy of the venue but were still able to capture the beauty of it was really great. There is a lot of stress that day but Josh and Rachel are seamlessly calm and patient – that was a HUGE help for all people involved.

To be surrounded by all the people we love was an unforgettable moment. We had such a great time – from the food to the dancing to the music to the food truck – it was so us.

Our advice to other couples—enjoy the ride. There were many times when we could have gotten stressed out about details but it was important to step back and see the big picture. We also recommend putting a cap on wedding talk – some dates deserve other topics. It’s good for your sanity! Also, ALWAYS ALWAYS hire a day-of coordinator. Worth every penny!

From Kristen Weaver PhotographyAshley and Greg’s wedding was probably one of my favorite Casa Feliz weddings to shoot! I have never seen the back reception patio look so beautiful – and it was completely unique to any other time I’ve photographed there! In what was also the brightest days known to mankind here on the “surface-of-the-sun-Florida”, I also managed to sweat off about 10 lbs… so yay!

Ashley and Greg met at work on Ashley’s first day at her new office. Greg woo-ed her with lots of chit-chat over things like cars and Jersey Shore (editor’s note: yes, seriously). They bonded over a broken elevator and 26-flight of stairs walk, and made it official on their first date at Dexter’s – a local favorite! Greg proposed on a surprise getaway to Amelia Island where he asked Ashley to marry him on an evening walk along the beach. They celebrated with a private fire pit, champagne and strawberries!

Since they’re both super family-oriented, they were the most excited to share their wedding day with everyone that means so much to them! They talked so much about this family member and that one, I felt like I knew them all by the end of the evening! The venue had a beautiful garden theme with long eucalyptus and lemon leaf table runners and wreaths, plus lots of really cute chalkboard signs made by Chalk Shop Events! As a favor, they gave out adorable little kitchen towels with their signature colors. Ashley’s bridal style was vintage lace keyhole back Maggie Sottero gown and vintage metallic accents, and her bouquet had antique brooches and a perfect combination of lavender roses and eucalyptus. The bridesmaids had sage bridesmaid gowns with white rose and eucalyptus.

You will absolutely obsess over the gorgeous tented reception. Even though there wasn’t a drop of rain for miles, Ashley requested a clear tent with market lights and chandelier – made possible by some absolutely incredible vendors! The bride and groom dined in armchairs from AFR Furniture rental and the guests sat at farm tables and gold chiavari chairs with plenty of candles and gold accents!

And I can’t finish this without mentioning their cake and dessert bar. To say that it was “sweet” – from the flavors to the design to the signs – would be a complete understatement!

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.}
