"Our day started off with expecting rains to come in. We weren’t sure if we would be able to shoot outside, but it held off just long enough to create the most entrancing blue skies against the backdrop of our venue. Laura Reynolds, with Laura Reynolds Artistry Hair and Makeup created glamorous up dos that had a slightly messy feel for our bridesmaids Kalyn Roberson and Paulina Semenov, along with our bride Taylor. Airbrush makeup and matte pink hues were the perfect natural choice for our models. While Taylor began dressing in her gown, the bridesmaids showcased beautiful bracelets handmade by Laurie Silva, with EricBari designs. While the stunning bracelets were the perfect gift for our bridesmaids, a two-karat ring by Littman Jewelers graced the hand of our bride. With the girls ready, it was time to get started. From the sweetheart table to the wedding cake display, we incorporated French era brass alongside antique glassware from Timeless Charm Rentals. Amanda took a personal interest in the shoot by even bringing along a beautiful weathered vanity that she revived into a stunning display for our couture cake. Cake artistry featured in our shoot was provided by Couture Cakes by Lia. The detail on the three tiered masterpiece, from handmade paper flowers to hand painted floral, was astounding. Lia even matched the lace fondant appliqué to Taylor’s wedding dress, which was designed by Maggie Sottero-from Casa di Bella. Among the numerous sculpture gardens, sits a beautiful Laurel Oak right off of the lake. One of my favorite locations on the property, the ceremony site is both natural and vibrant, as you feel the breeze off the lake and hear the “I do’s” of couples tying the knot. French country wooden chairs (provided by Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals) graced the aisle as our bride, groom, and bridesmaids posed against floral and ribbon designs handcrafted by Katie. The strong winds calmed down just in time for a gentler breeze showcasing the beauty and simplicity of our Rose Quartz ribbon, identical to Taylor’s ballet shoes. The beauty of ballet is that it is ever changing. Each ballet dancer has their own style and at times incorporates more of a contemporary feel. Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals was able to help bring in a contemporary element with their jaw dropping sweetheart chair that literally stretched the height of the first floor. While modern, its crisp white fabric paired perfectly with our stunning Sperry tent. Sitting lakeside, the sweetheart table and guest table that Katie designed was gently sheltered against the wind, by our beautiful Sperry tent. FireFly Productions beautifully trailed market lighting along the perimeter of the tent beckoning guests in, but first they would have to make their way to our ceremony. With nighttime approaching we used the dramatic lighting against the bold night sky for a final adagio**, where Arcadian lifted Taylor. Our night ended inside against the wooden staircase of the Capen House. Drapped with floral garland, our bride and groom toasted to a beautiful night well spent and many more to come. Many thanks to the wonderful vendors who took part including Samantha Eckhaus with Corner House Photography for capturing the beautiful imagery, Joey Elston with Something Beautiful Films for filming our incredulous shoot, and Katie Scully with Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design for bringing our vision to life.
