Featured in Munaluchi Bride Magazine, Issue No. 26, this Styled Shoots Across America and Intrigued Events Workshop set the scene for colorful summer floral inspiration bursting with vibrant details!
While winter is creeping up on us, this shoot is the perfect inspiration for those planning a summer wedding for 2023! Designed by Heather Benge of Styled Shoots Across America and Sarah Campbell of Intrigued Events, their talented vendor team created a romantic, playful, and colorful wedding filled with luscious floral decor. Jennifer Nicole Photography & Films captured the day.
Highlights include a huge floral arch in front of the venue’s iconic fountain, a second arch for the inside dining area, a fireplace overflowing with flowers, and a gorgeous multi-tiered cake with acrylic tiers by LuBelle’s Cakes. The model couple, Alexandra & Lucas, and one solo bride, Carranita, brought the shoot to life in traditional attire and a multi-tiered pink dress.
This shoot had such a colorful vibe to it that made me think of summertime! All that was missing was the beach, but the lake was close enough. The bright and bold colors remind you of late spring/early summer when everything is in bloom and you can definitely say things were in bloom for this shoot! The florals will blow you away in all ways possible.Jennifer (Photographer)

Pretty little things…
Luxmore Grande Estate, located in Northern Orlando, is a beautiful white estate house that sits on 5 acres right on Lake Jesup. As soon as you enter, you are greeted with two symmetric staircases and a grand ballroom. There’s also a library room and a side room with a fireplace that makes for a great intimate space for a cake set up. Originally a private home, LGE was converted to a venue in 2014.
About the florist…
Sarah Campbell of Intrigue Designs travels the country (and beyond) helping florists grow their design businesses, and these incredible florals are the result of their hard work! Students came together to create all of these amazing designs, which are then used for Styled Shoots Across America.
The “Color Queen” of flowers…
Sarah is known as the Color Queen, if you saw her on Netflix’s The Big Flower Fight, you know what I’m talking about! As always, there were such fun colors being utilized here. Flowers always set the tone of the event, so this shoot was nothing but joyful and exciting.
This venue is stunning on its own, and the Intrigue attendees did an incredible job of elevating the luxury! Their blooms used the canvas of the venue to create a beautiful work of floral art. The rich, over-flowing beauty of the flowers complimented the opulence of the setting to create these stunning photos.Sarah (Florist)
In front of the venue, there was the most BEAUTIFUL floral installment using those summertime shades of pinks, purples, oranges and yellows.
The cake was set up in front of the fireplace and boy did it grab your attention! There was a large floral installment along the fireplace for a gorgeous backdrop to this 5 tier cake. Sitting atop a gold platform stand, the bottom tier features a light texture of white lace and butterflies.
To enhance the design, LuBelle’s Cakes incorporated crystal clear acrylic tiers, adding height to the cake and enhancing the look. From the bottom to the top, the fresh florals are just the pop of color needed to add to the overall design. The venue lends itself as a great canvas for any inspiration or color palette.
Cake alone is enough to bring a smile to my face, but the added magnificence of these flowers was jaw-dropping! The goal here was to create a beautiful floral frame for the cake, and allow the eyes to focus on the cake, but leave room for the heart to enjoy the surrounding blooms. This masterful mix of color would have anyone reach for a camera as soon as they stepped in the room.Sarah (Florist)
