The Alfond Inn: Nicole and Justin

by Andrea on Wednesday, March 9, 2016

You know how much we just love winter weddings! There’s something inherently magical about them, even in Florida. Nicole and Justin’s Christmas wedding at the Alfond Inn, however, was positively ethereal. And can we talk about Nicole’s lace gown and vintage styled heels? Oh my goodness!

The celebration began with a sweet ceremony at All Souls Historic Chapel, with every intimate moment beautifully captured by Binaryflips Photography. After I Do’s were exchanged, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the Alfond Inn for the reception, where the drapery and lighting by Swag Décor wonderfully complemented the wedding vision.

The candles that adorned the tables and were dispersed throughout the room lent a gentle, warm glow to the evening. The gold sparkle linens from Over the Top Linens added the perfect amount of shimmer to the tables. Even the intricate detail on the cake stand not only perfectly showcased the delicious, four-tier buttercream cake from Everything Cake, but also added to the ethereal feel of the affair.

The evening ended just as beautifully as it began, with the couple surrounded by their loved ones and the light of dozens of sparklers. Congratulations, Nicole and Justin! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

The Alfond Inn: Kat and Felipe

by Andrea on Monday, January 18, 2016

We had such an amazing time planning every last gorgeous detail of Kat and Felipe’s gorgeous wedding day at The Alfond Inn. It was the perfect combination of simple romance and dramatic flair. The ever talented, Regina Hyman Photography did a fantastic job capturing all the memorable moments and mesmerizing details. The ceremony took place in the conservatory, which let in glowing rays of natural light to highlight the soft, white tones. The room had an intimate feel, with white resin chairs in the round, enabling guests to surround the couple with love. An all white arbor anchored the center of the room, and tall arrangements of crisp white flowers flanked the aisles.

The cool-tone inspired reception was theatrically lit with deep purple uplighting, perfectly offset with shimmering silver linens. Greenery Productions didn’t miss a single beat with these show-stopping centerpieces! Tall pilsner vases burst with lush, bountiful blooms of all-white orchids, hydrangeas, and roses. For added drama, strands of Spanish moss dangled delicately from the impressive arrangements. Frosted candle votives flickered below, oozing intimate ambiance.

Guests didn’t have to worry about curbing that late night, sweet treat craving. Bake Me a Cake created a decadent four-tier masterpiece to be front and center on the delightfully delectable dessert buffet for friends and family to indulge. And the night wouldn’t have been complete without a stunning sparkler exit for the happy couple. Friends and family lined the path outside, waving their glittering sparklers to send off the newlyweds in style!

Congratulations, Kat and Felipe! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day. It was an honor working with the talented team of event professionals who made the day possible.
