Whisk us away to a folkloric past, and we’ll be yours forever. That’s precisely why today’s medieval castle wedding in Central Florida has us utterly engaged from “Once upon a time” to “Happily ever after.” The voluminous clouds of baby’s breath drape the venue’s limestone hued columns in a romantically effortless fashion – the kind of hard-earned skill Intrigue Designs is known for. A soft pink rose was added to the mostly cream floral palette as the day’s events were revealed, and the sumptuous tablescape conceptualized by Heather Benge makes us want to press pause for hours so we can soak up every inch of richness from 3D embroidered linen to polished gold urns. We can’t help but feel transported to the era of Robin Hood x Maid Marian as we study the graceful and tender portraits from Lisette OC Photography. You already know how we feel about poet sleeve wedding dresses!
From the Photographer, Lisette OC Photography: This wedding shoot at Bella Collina evoked a fairytale feel that few other venues could pull off so well, all done with the vision of Heather Benge from Styled Shoots Across America. I loved the grandiosity of it all, including the atrium with its chandeliers and sandstone columns, which was very much reminiscent of a medieval castle. I completely fell in love with the tall floral centerpieces by Intrigue Designs. The gold accents and soft, romantic florals that adorned the table were a complementary contrast to the regal green mixed into the lounge area furniture and flatlay details. The bride’s gown by Eleanor’s Bridal did not overpower the amazing location and was the perfect choice as it had a whimsical princess style, including the dainty bow in her hair; yet the choice for her to wear a set of Nicola Bathie‘s oversized earrings modernized the look. It seemed appropriate for the groom’s attire to deviate from the formal black tux, especially because of the natural elements of the venue, so a blue suit and brown shoes by The Modern Groom were just right.
If you’ve been in a design rut, we’re confident you’ll be feeling that struggle no more after coming across this modern medieval castle wedding! One look at the way this team turns baby’s breath into bona fide flowerfalls cascading across the day’s vignettes from vaulted hall ceremony to moody cake display, and your design senses are sure to be tingling! You can sneak a peek at some additional creative uses of baby’s breath here btw. You. Are. Welcome!
