Lia & Lisa | Non-Traditional Black Tie Wedding
Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando - Roof Top Deck | Johann Strauss Ballroom
Lia and Lisa are the best and I loved working with them; they are a wedding planner’s dream client because they put so much trust in me and really followed my lead.
They wanted a glamorous, non- traditional, black tie wedding and this clean modern design with a plum and grey color palate really set the stage for the chic, urban wedding.
The Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando in downtown Orlando offered beautiful outdoor locations for stylish cityscape portraits and wedding party photographs.
The Grand Bohemian’s rooftop pool deck set the stage for an elegant sunset wedding ceremony. The white wedding tent was layered with white draping and white carpeting accented with beautiful crystal chandeliers and crystal chivari chairs. The only pop of color was the brides’ beautiful hand tied aubergine calla lily bridal bouquets.
Each of the ladies selected a bridal party of close friends, with the ladies carrying burgundy black calla lily bouquets.
Photographer Kathy Thomas worked with us to design a Vanity Fair like photo studio where guests were able to get styled, dramatic portraits.
Lia and Lisa were awestruck at the Lisa Stoner Events team’s transformation of the Grand Bohemian’s Johann Strauss Ballroom.
Soft room draping, elegant up lights and pin spots highlighting the centerpieces and wedding cake; as well as two long tables anchoring the space, flanked by round guest tables really set the stage for this clean, modern plum and grey wedding design.
Plum linen alternated with grey and white geometric patterned linen were layered with clusters of white floating candles, rectangular mirrored boxes and tall trumpet vases filled with lush tropical greenery tying in some of Lisa’s Puerto Rican heritage. Tiny pops of dark plum calla lilies added a touch of elegance and pulled in the colors of the bridal bouquets.
The ladies started the evening with their first dance to “Truly”, by Lionel Richie and danced the night away. Guests enjoyed cake pops, sweet treats, and late night wedding munchies in addition to their wedding cake.
Congratulations Lia and Lisa!
