Chelsea & Josh worked with our owner, Brandee Gaar, for Full Planning and Design to bring their watercolor wedding to life! They both wanted a laid back feel to their big day. Josh is an award winning wake boarder so implementing elements from the water was important! Knowing that they wanted to be near the water and provide a luxurious experience for their guests, the couple opted for The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. We chose a muted palette of blush and champagne. For design we used watercolor throughout to create the romantic, causal elements that embodied both of their personalities!
Chelsea and Josh had a “first touch” prior to their ceremony, they were able to have a few moments alone before saying their vows but Josh didn’t get to see Chelsea until she walked down the aisle!
Their ceremony location was breathtaking! It took place at the Gazebo with a picture perfect view overlooking the lake, golf course, and headwaters of the Florida Everglades.
At the Gazebo there are manicured seasonal flowers all year long!
Chelsea made a beautiful bride as she walked down the aisle, wearing the most brilliant smile and carrying her vibrant bridal bouquet. Joshua was positively beaming as he saw his bride for the first time.
Chelsea and Josh said their “I do’s” under a floral arch crafted with hot pink garden roses, pink roses, white hydrangeas, orchids, stock and ranunculus, to match the blooms used for for the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets.
Shortly after their beautifully romantic ceremony, it was time to celebrate!
The reception took place outdoors under a stunning canopy that lit up the evening, illuminating the mahogany farm tables and french country chairs colorful, lush florals by Lee James brought life to the tables, creating the perfect contrast to the gold rim glass chargers and blush lamour napkins.
Sparkler Send-off! Such a dazzling way to end a perfect day!
