The Spanish moss slightly swaying in the crisp fall air. The privacy of a grand estate built in the 1940s. And the beauty of two families coming together for one celebratory day.
It was the perfect surroundings for a perfect day.
Working with Lisa Stoner, of Lisa Stoner Events, Erin and Clay had a vision of a charming Florida estate wedding. The ceremony would take place overlooking the lake and the reception would have a charming garden style design.
Set in the backdrop of the Adams Estate on Lake Alfred, hues of pink, salmon, and deep burgundy gave the wedding dimension and moodiness. A large, circle arch naturally designed with a growing trellis of roses, peonies, dahlias, and greenery created a unique ceremony backdrop - a stand out amongst the old trees and calm lake. And this structure would not only be a highlight of the ceremony, but would be a stand-out piece for the cocktail reception and dance floor after it was carefully moved by the Fairbanks Florist team.
Erin carried a muted bouquet of wildflowers and stephanotis (one of her favorite flowers) for a whimsical, unstructured look that would give way to free-form design for Lana. It gave Erin a look of delicacy and romance while not taking away from the beauty of her dress.
The reception inside the estate was filled with low-height floral arrangements of roses, peonies, magnolias and a variety of crystal and cut glass from Lana’s admired collection. It was the perfect look to create the southern charm feel. And to bring in Erin’s love of Florida citrus, bright tangerines were sparingly placed throughout the room.
We loved the quaint charm of Erin and Clay’s special day. It was the perfect blend of unstructured design that brought a cohesive and relaxed feel to the day!
