Our year started at Celebration Gardens with an intimate wedding for Shelby, Colin and approximately sixty of their family and friends.
The gardens could not have been more beautiful; lush, green and plenty of flowering trees. Shelby chose this wrought iron bench under a canopy of ivy for some photographs before the wedding ceremony. We love her bridal bouquet with ivory roses, ranunculus, white stock and Italian ruscus.
Before seeing his bride, Colin posed for some photos under the white arbor. He looked very handsome in a grey three-piece suite with ivory bow tie and white rose boutonnière.
The couple chose our Wild Orchid Ceremony and Reception Package, and the wedding professionals in this all-inclusive wedding planning package were incredible.
As a trio played, Shelby made her way from the Bridal Cottage to the Wedding Gazebo where the couple exchanged their vows.
The Celebration Gardens Wedding Gazebo looked beautiful draped in soft fabric and accented with two large boughs of white flowers and greenery.
After the wedding ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails and butler passed hors d’oeuvres, while the couple took some photos together.
For their cocktail hour, the couple selected several of John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering’s most popular hors d’oeuvres; Beef and Blues, their signature meatball combined with blue cheese and wrapped in applewood smoked bacon. In addition to the Beef and Blues we provided Spanakopita and Mushrooms stuffed with Boursin Cheese.
We love this photo of Shelby and Colin in our vintage red telephone booth.
After their first dance and a few special toasts, everyone enjoyed a buffet reception. The tables were accented with white and ivory centerpieces. The tables, draped in sea mist colored linens matched the bridesmaid’s dresses.
After dinner, guests danced the night away under a canopy of market lights.
Shelby and Colin made a grand exit through the garden gate, showered by an arch of sparklers created by their family and friends.
Congratulations Shelby and Colin, we are thrilled you chose Celebration Gardens for your Orlando wedding.
