An outdoor celebration of Winter romance!
Stephanie & Andrew’s wedding left us stunned, amazed, and teary-eyed! It was everything a winter wedding should be- warm, cozy, and full of love. They chose hues of red, & green to create their dream wedding at the gorgeous Bramble Tree Estate in Sorrento, FL. This venue comes proudly equipped with a wide-open outdoor space, perfect for a tent! Stephanie & Andrew were drawn to our Sailcloth tent to host their reception, and equipped it with our market lighting while Florida served up a beautiful sunset! The photos from their wedding speak for themselves as they’re the work of Rudy & Marta Photography! They perfectly captured everything, down to the smallest detail. The mastermind behind the beautiful styling & event design was our good friend, Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design!

Jewel tones, Vintage touches, & Beautiful scenery- Oh my!
Let’s hear it for the happy couple! Krystina and Joseph tied the knot at Bella Collina on a perfect December day with a wedding fit to match. Runway Events & Flowers by Lesley styled Bella Collina with jewel-toned décor and vintage pieces from the Runway Collection. Concept Photography hit it out of the park with the STUNNING photos from the big day. We had the honor of providing the rentals for not only their ceremony, but their reception as well! As the sun went down, things heated up as our market lighting shed light on everyone’s silly, but awesome, dance moves. The couple managed to steal some time for themselves to share a private dance. The couple’s send-off was magical as every guest lit a sparkler in cheer. We are so grateful to have been a part of Krystina and Joseph’s happily ever after!

We sat down with our good friend and Cindy Crawford look-alike, Andi Mans for our Trendy Vendy this week! Her creativity astounds us and her passion for her community is awe-inspiring. Andi has her own business here in Orlando that is constantly pushing the limits. Being the Owner and the Creative Director to her own company keeps her quite busy, especially when that business offers event design, photography, florals, & local workshops. Is there anything she can’t do?! We certainly don’t think so!
When you work with Andi Mans- the company, you get Andi Mans- herself as she is very hands-on with all of her clients & projects. Her team is equally amazing and together with Andi they work incredibly hard to deliver the best services. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Andi on several styled shoots and weddings, as well as, other special events. We have nothing but kind words to say about Andi, her team, & her business.
Here are her answers to some of our most burning questions!
How did you get your start?
I actually was in the music/media industry before entering the wedding industry! I have a love for journalism, community and everything creative. I first got my “foot in the door” through my love for photography, after spending about 6 years shooting, I missed my hands being on artsy side and transformed my business into a one-stop creative business offering brides and all clients of all kinds, creative event services!
What services do you offer?
Event Design & Coordination, Styling, Floral, Photography and local creative Workshops!
How would you describe your décor/ design style?
I’m a huge lover of nature and the outdoors, there’s something to be said about having a beautiful backdrop outside with simple yet elegant accents that compliment your surroundings without going overboard! My heart is a mix of bohemian, organic and minimalist modern. But we can cater to any style, each event makes it so much fun, because each are so unique!
How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?
Wedding trends come and go, but some return! I try to stay current but not let it dictate my branding nor a bride/client. Small elements are great to incorporate but I don’t think anything should have a “theme” per say,. A good balance is key!
What sets you apart from others?
I’d like to think that we all are unique and special, and I just extremely love what I do. I’m passionate in all of my services equally. My clients become my friends. I want them have a completely happy and stress free process. I believe my unique background provides a special experience.
What advice would you give Brides during the design/planning process?
Pick two things about your wedding that are most important to you. Keep bridal parties on the lower side if you can and remember that, although having an aesthetically pleasing wedding can be impressive and beautiful, what your wedding is about… is your love for one another. Don’t add extra formalities if you aren’t “crazy” about them and think outside the box. Do your own thing, there are no rules! Believe it or not, guests love new traditions. Hire a professional to help you sort all of your ideas out!! 🙂 haha!
Who is your style icon?
Martha Stewart. I appreciate her “jack of all trades” attitude. She has made a brand that has surpassed one thing, and everything she touches is beautiful and consistent in detail and lifestyle. She’s a business woman and has found success through multiple ventures, and I love that about her. I believe a true creative never stops at just one thing.
When you’re not helping clients, what can we find you doing?
Sipping coffee, day dreaming of new projects and spending time with friends and family. I truly love my community, my church, and I’m currently writing a faith based book for women. I love to work out and trying new recipes in the kitchen!
Fun Facts about you:
I had a full length recorded album with Sony Records when I was 19! Yup, I sang!
I was a guest on the Steve Harvey show in Chicago!
I love love love Fashion, and have a growing obsession with shoes! AH!
I’m a Sci-Fi nerd!
I love going to watch musicals/orchestra shows! Super hopeless romantic obviously!
See Andi’s work in action!

With a little help from his friends, Frankie turned 30!
Frankie’s birthday at LakeHouse was the perfect celebration! Surrounded by friends and family, Frankie turned 30 and hosted a party that was the talk of the town. Rebekkah from Runway Events who is also Frankie’s lovely wife, provided the eclectic rentals + bar, which we paired with our more modern pieces! This combination was simply sensational and was a huge hit with the party guests! Everyone celebrated Frankie’s milestone into the early morning with no signs of stopping. Below are some photos from the event that’ll make you wish you were there!
A Gorgeous Outdoor Photoshoot!
Our good friend Rebekkah, from Runway Events, collaborated with Chelsea Renay Photography to create this visually STUNNING photoshoot. We fell in love with the deep hues, rich wood décor, and the gorgeous model at the center of it all. Rebekkah styled the shoot and combined her vintage pieces with our rustic pieces creating the most perfect and awe-inspiring design! This is a great example of how you can mix-and-match in order to capture your unique and personal style! With a back-drop of lush greenery and show-stopping décor, this photoshoot has us feeling inspired and ready for what the rest of the Fall season has to offer!
So, pull up a vintage-inspired chair at our farm table and sneak a peek at this beautiful outdoor photoshoot!
The Bride of Frankenstein makes an appearance at the Quantum Leap Winery!
It’s that time of the year where there’s a chill in the air (except in Florida) and there’s Pumpkin-flavored everything- sure signs that fall is in full swing and that Halloween is right around the corner!
And hey! We have an early treat for you!
Each year, Michele Butler Events designs a photoshoot centered around Halloween and this time the theme was “The Bride of Frankenstein!” Que the lightning and scary music! The Quantum Leap Winery created the perfect back-drop for this shoot, giving the spine-tingling feeling of being in Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. From the eerie décor, to the sinister-looking models, this shoot will fill you to the brim with fright!
Watch out for creepy crawlies as you sit in our clear chiavari chairs and sample wines in this spooky setting! Elmwood Forest Productions created a horror-noire style video with excerpts from the famous novel, capturing the ominous Frankenstein castle. Try not to get spooked!
