This adorable garden villa styled shoot is inspired by the natural beauty of Florida’s botanical gardens.
The minimalistic, modern table-scaping allows the setting to become as much a part of the focus as the custom, brushed-gold chargers, to the two-tiered black-luxury cake – creating an ideal intimate wedding and/or elopement concept. Read all about the design details below, featuring planning & design by MunaLuchi Coterie member Immaculate Events, LLC.
“The tone of this shoot was inspired by Florida’s beautiful botanical gardens and a vision of colorful glam outdoor weddings. The Garden Villa is a dreamy garden whose beauty and charm provide the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding. This gem is nestled in the heart of Winter Park, a city near Orlando, Florida.
“The color palette of black, gold and navy blue was perfectly paired with colorful floral to reflect glamour, the sun, and blooms of lush foliage. Each component was incorporated in the decor, bridal fashion, as well as hair and makeup. These delightful details were captured by Unashamed Imaging.
“Our unveiled bride wore a fitted beaded elegant wedding gown with a touch of sexy. It was stylish, yet versatile enough to navigate a garden on a wedding day.
“Rather than focus on the style of a cliché garden wedding, a lovely combination of elements was used to create a unique styled wedding. To bring this eclectic theme to life, a squared table was dressed in a crinkled navy tablecloth. To complete the design, a tablespace of colorful garden flowers and pillar candles was the table’s focal piece. The place settings were brushed gold charger plates with yellow napkins atop to tie in the floral colors.
“Elegant menu cards with gold foil tropical designs were added to complete the look of the place setting. To further glam up this table, black ghost chairs were used for seating to add a modern touch. One of the favorites, unique and sweet addition was a two-tiered black wedding cake with a cascading wave pattern of colorful garden floral. Incorporating another modern element, the cake was displayed on a gold metal column stand.”
