Sophisticated Alfond Inn Celebration


Katie & Ryan’s Alfond Inn wedding equal parts sophisticated celebration and epic party! The Alfond Inn, nestled in Winter Park, Florida, is a popular Orlando wedding venue. The Inn is well-known for exquisite culinary and service. The Alfond features a stunning lawn lined with gardens ideal for outdoor ceremonies, conservatory for cocktails, and stunning ballroom.

The couple exchanged vows in a picture perfect ceremony with the conservatory serving as the alter backdrop. Katie was a vision in her long sleeve lace gown, as she walked down the aisle to ‘Turning Page’ by Sleeping at Last.

Cocktail hour was held in the conservatory, featuring a soaring glass domed ceiling. This space is truly one of the highlights of the Alfond Inn.

The ballroom was elegantly draped in white and swagged in soft taupe. We provided full room LED Wall Uplighting in a warm candlight color. Soundwave DJ Ray Vales introduced Mr. & Mrs. Totten and the couple shared their first dance to an oldie but goodie – ‘Strangers in the Night’ by Frank Sinatra.

The evening was rounded out with toasts, dinner, cake, and a VERY busy dance floor! This crowd wasted little time in their seats, and danced all night! DJ Ray kept everyone on their feet, playing classics like ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ by Van Morrison all the way to modern day hits by artists such as Dua Lipa & Ariana Grande. To close the night, guests filtered out to ‘Closing Time’ by Semisonic before seeing the couple off with a sparkler sendoff. A fitting exit for this sophisticated Alfond Inn celebration!
