Lakehouse Open House!

A lakeside venue full of cool vibes!

 

February has definitely been a busy month for us and we started it off right with the Lakehouse Open House! We got to chat with fellow vendors and provide rentals for not only a styled-shoot, but for a ceremony & reception set-up as well. Guests got to see the many possibilities of this venue’s space and the view didn’t hurt either! We’ve had the pleasure of visiting this venue in the past for Frankie’s Dirty Thirty so we were excited to come back for this special event. From business meetings to weddings & social events, Lakehouse has it all! Check out some of the photos from the open house, below!

Stephanie & Andrew • Bramble Tree Estate

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

 

Here are a few photos from their big day!

Trendy Vendy- Weddings by Carly Ane’s Floral Studio

Our Trendy Vendy for this week is none other than our good friends over at Carly Ane’s Floral Studio! They’re a family owned business committed to serving every customer with the highest quality florals & gifts with the best price possible. Their staff is incredibly talented with creativity off the charts as evidenced in the many weddings, & style-shoots they’ve worked on! When you work with Carly Ane’s you know you’re going to get quality customer service, and quality products.

Whether you need flowers delivered around the world or just around the corner, we’re here to help. Our experienced professional floral consultants are always happy to help you select the perfect floral expression. Simply let us know your list of special occasions you wish to be reminded of and we won’t let you forget them.

 

 

 

 

How did you get your start?

“Dave’s father started the business in 1982- naming the shop for his daughter, Carly Ane. Helping at the studio ever since he was in high school was only natural for Dave to learn and grow with the company. This year he’s taken on Weddings by Carly Ane’s as his own adding Jaimz as Design Consultant and Marketing.

She started in the event industry planning and organizing cast parties and celebrations while working in the area’s theme parks. After some time working in the coordinating and cakes part of weddings she landed in floral and design- and loves every minute of it!”

 

 

What services do you offer?

“We offer full wedding floral design and some décor rental such as arches, shepherd hooks, vases, candles. Etc. Within out 5,000 sq.. ft warehouse our clients are sure to find what will best meet their design needs.”

 

 

What inspires your floral designs?

“The clients! A couple’s personality and sense of style should come through in their floral and décor. We want them to express themselves the best way possible for their big day. We like to listen to what our brides and grooms want the overall look and feel of their wedding day to be, not what someone tells them they must have.”

 

 

How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?

“Keep an eye on the internet! Fashion and seasonal colors play a lot into floral palettes. Also, pay attention to the past- popular trends have a way of coming back around full circle.”

 

 

What sets you apart from others?

“We care- a lot- about our clients and the success of their events. Anyone can sell you flowers and make arrangements but it’s the connection and interaction with a vendor who has your best interest at heart that makes the difference. We don’t have one-time customers. We have families who planned their weddings with us in the 80’s and now the children of those couples are coming in to plan their own celebrations. Birthdays, new babies, anniversaries, weddings- they stay with us through all of life’s occasions… and we’re here for their calls!”

 

 

What advice would you give Brides during the design/planning process?

“Take your time and get a full vision together of what you want. Do you research and don’t fall in love with something if it’s not realistic within your budget. Trust your professionals and ask their advice on what options you have to make the most out of your day. And when it comes down to it- have fun!! Stressing about every little detail is the surest way for you to look back and wish you had just let go.”

 

 

Fun Facts about you:

  1. Both Dave and Jaimz are big fans of the Dallas Cowboys!
  1. Dave enjoys Formula One racing, golf, and Jelly Bellys.
  1. Jaimz has blue hair (currently), loads of tattoos, performs improv and burlesque in the area, and- yes- is a girl!
  1. Our warehouse space is large enough to hold parties and events- and we did just that recently with our first open house!

 

 

 

See their work in action!

Krystina & Joseph • Bella Collina

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!

Stephanie & Ben • Lake Mary Events Center

A Glam Wedding for Stephanie & Ben!

 

2-576

We had the pleasure of providing the rentals for Stephanie and Ben’s wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center! Stephanie is an industry favorite of ours and is the owner/ co-founder of the planning company Saving the Day Events. Her wedding not only incorporated her love of glam, but also some of her friendors in the wedding industry. Together, the vendor line-up hit it out of park and created the wedding of Stephanie + Ben’s dreams!

Pictures are worth a thousand words as they say, and the photos courtesy of Harmony Lynn Photography are telling us that this wedding was AMAZING and so much more! Stephanie & Ben are the cutest, their love is sweet & genuine and it shines through even the smallest details. After always working hard for her clients on their special days, Stephanie got to sit back and enjoy her special day with Ben and let her friends save the day.

 

Take a look!

From mugs of hot chocolate to chestnuts roasting on an open fire, there are so many things that we love about winter! But rich, romantic color palettes make our hearts beat the fastest! Our friends at Dandy Details Events styled this shoot with hues of burgundy and green putting a new spin on traditional winter themes & the Quantum Leap Winery served as the perfect backdrop for this romantic vignette. What a vision! Our silver industrial chairs and our mahogany chiavari chairs were a beautiful complement and this photoshoot left us feeling inspired and excited for the winter season ahead!

A Gorgeous Outdoor Photoshoot!

 

fotor-1

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!

A Spooky Photoshoot at Quantum Leap Winery!

 

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!
