Tale As Old As Time

Lauren and Justin | Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church | Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Lauren and Justin came to Lisa Stoner Events from New York and were high school sweethearts. 

Lauren is very thoughtful and tenderhearted, she was always thinking of her guest’s journey for the wedding and their overall experience during the Orlando wedding weekend.

Lauren has been a life-long Disney LOVER! (seriously, how do these girls know and find me? I am guessing Like attracts Like!) Justin is truly a prince and he would follow her to the end of the earth and what I remember about him was how truly devoted he is to her.

The rehearsal dinner was at Disney’s California Grill located at the top of the Contemporary Resort. The welcome reception and a casual farewell brunch were held at The Summerhouse at the Grand Floridian. The majority of her portraits were taken at The Grand Floridian as well!

Lauren looked stunning in her A Line satin gown with sweetheart neckline; accented with crystal embellishments, chapel length gown and beautiful white Badgley Mischka open toe pumps with crystal bow. Lauren carried a full, round, hand tied bridal bouquet of soft pink roses wrapped in pearls and accented with lockets filled with family photos.

Their traditional Greek Orthodox wedding was held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Maitland and she arrived in a classic white Rolls Royce. 

This ornate space was accented with an aisle runner, some simple white pew arrangements and full white arrangements on gold candelabras on the altar.

I suggested The Ritz Carlton Orlando for her wedding reception because it offered the flexibility she needed. The resort had all of the same luxe appointments that she was looking for, and I knew the service would be exemplary.

After the ceremony at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, guests made their way back to the Ritz Carlton’s Davinci Lawn. We were able to design a very gracious, elegant and grown-up "Beauty and the Beast" vibe.

Long luxurious guest tables with lush low floral pieces of full white hydrangea and soft pink roses were adorned with shimmering votive candles in gold glass and tall golden candelabras. The elegant tabletop design with simple white chargers, dupioni silk napkins and custom menu cards was complimented with gold chivari chairs.

This very open outdoor design in a u-shape not only created a chic space for dinner to accommodate 100 guests but also offered plenty of room for Greek dancing.
