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.

Purple Wedding, Regina Hyman Photography

From the moment they met, Andrea and Mickey knew that their love story was one destined to last a lifetime. As an event planner and the lead designer of her own wedding, Andrea wanted her big day to be unforgettable. Andrea and Mickey’s fairytale wedding took place at the brand new, state-of-the-art, Dr. Phillips Center, in the heart of downtown Orlando. In addition to going above and beyond, they made Orlando history in the process, as they were the first couple to celebrate their vows at the innovative Dr. Phillips Center. The 165 guests enjoyed cocktails in a fifth-floor rotunda, dinner in the theater, and a dance party in a room overlooking downtown Orlando.

Root Weddings was on scene to beautifully capture every magical moment. The lush, exquisite floral designs showcased throughout wedding were perfectly curated by Greenery Productions. Party Flavors Custom Cakes were the mastermind behind the stunning, decadent cake, and catering was graciously provided by Puff n Stuff. It’s not a dance party without the music, and Soundwave Entertainment definitely did not disappoint! Andrea’s visions came to life as the spectacular event unfolded, but it was Mickey who surprised her in the end by hiring her favorite mariachi band, El Cobra Mariachi, to put the finishing touches on the spectacular night.
