Rachel and Shane’s Cypress Grove Estate House wedding, May 8, 2021, was full of elegance and southern charm. The Cypress Grove Estate House is a vintage 1925 home located in Orlando, just a few minutes South of Downtown, situated on 80 acres of lush, lakeside grounds. This highly sought-after Orlando wedding venue is known for its tree-lined streets, aged oak and cypress trees, radiant seasonal flowers, and perfectly manicured lawns.

The couple exchanged vows under a stunning brick-paved gazebo on the shores of Lake Jessamine. Rachel was a vision in her intricate lace gown as she walked down the aisle to “Invisible String” by Taylor Swift. The newlyweds took advantage of the beautiful spring weather to host an outdoor reception in the courtyard of the estate. Vibrant floral arrangements and fuchsia table linens adorned the tables, bringing a touch of spring to the space.

Soundwave DJ Dennis Michael began the reception by announcing the bridal party to “Combatchy” ft MC Rebecca, Anitta, Lexa & Luisa Sonza. Then, the newlyweds shared their first dance to “The Bones” by Maren Morris & Hozier, dancing beneath the market lights.

The evening was full of joy and laughter as guests indulged in a delicious meal catered by Big City Catering, toasts, bouquet and garter tosses, and cake. The party was in full force when guests hit the dance floor.

Many guests knew each other from UCF, so Rachel & Shane wanted a high-energy party vibe. DJ Dennis Michael kept the dance floor full with a mix of alternative songs, throwbacks, and 2000s and current day pop and urban hits, with a few participation dances sprinkled in the mix. As the evening wound down, Mr. and Mrs. Meckler shared one final dance with guests to “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. Everyone gathered outside the front of the house for a final farewell, as the newlyweds danced under the stars to “Meu Abrigo” by Melim for their private last dance, closing out the evening on this elegant Cypress Grove Estate House wedding.

Ryan and Jennifer’s Bella Collina wedding felt like a step back in time to old-world Tuscany. Tucked away in the rolling hills of Lake County, Florida, just 20 minutes west of Downtown Orlando, Bella Collina is one of Central Florida’s premier wedding venues.  This luxury country club boasts magnificent views, Tuscan architecture, and five-star service.

The Orlando couple took advantage of the beautiful spring weather by hosting an outdoor ceremony and reception. Jennifer looked like royalty as she was escorted down the aisle to a beautiful medley of  “Concerning Hobbits” (Piano Version) & “Morunas” (Lord of the Ring: The Fellowship of the Rings). The couple exchanged sentimental handwritten vows in front of 80 of their closest friends and family members, before being announced husband and wife as “The Adventure” by Angels and Airwaves rang out over the speakers.

The reception was held on the grand lawn. Surrounded on all sides by rolling hills, Bella Collina is pure magic. Soundwave Owner DJ Les Kopasz introduced the guests of honor and newlyweds to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Tarrell.  The new Mr. & Mrs. shared a sweet first dance to “Leave This World” by Ray Scott. Guests enjoyed a classy evening which included a delicious buffet dinner, parent dances, cake cutting, and of course – dancing! As the sun sunk over the rolling hills of beautiful Montverde, guests packed the dance floor and danced all night to Brazilian music, throwback classics, country songs, and modern-day hits.

Twinkling stars dotted the night sky as “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith serenaded guests for one last dance. After everyone headed to the exit for a sparkler sendoff, the newlyweds enjoyed one final private dance to “Somebody to Love” by Queen. Everyone cheered & raised their sparklers as Ryan & Jennifer bid their final farewell to guests, a picture-perfect ending to this stunning springtime Bella Collina wedding.

Kaitlyn and Joseph’s Omni Resort wedding was equal parts classy and sophisticated. Held at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, guests were treated to luxury accommodations, stunning facilities, and dreamy golf course views. Heralded as a top contender by even the most discerning of couples, Omni Resort delivers the “WOW” factor many brides and grooms seek.

The evening began as the couple exchanged vows on the lawn of the Ballroom Commons. Kaitlyn was absolutely stunning in her fitted lace gown as she was escorted down the aisle to “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Haley Reinhart. The ceremony space was immaculately decorated with a gold floral arch and beautiful floral lantern arrangements lining the aisle.

The reception space was lavishly decorated with classic white linens, gold chivari chairs, and light blue LED Wall Uplighting provided by Soundwave Entertainment.

Soundwave Owner DJ Les Kopasz got the party started as he introduced the bridal party and newlyweds to “Bring Em Out” by TI. Mr. and Mrs. Schiro shared their first dance as husband and wife to “Say You Won’t Let Go” by Matt Johnson & Jaclyn Davies.

Soundwave also provided a Photo Booth that added to the fun. At the end of the night, the bride and groom were presented with their Photo Booth Scrapbook with all the images taken throughout the wedding celebration.

The bride and groom wanted to ensure that their guests had a good time and that DJ Les kept them dancing! Guests packed the dance floor all evening, punctuated by breaks for dinner, special parent dances, and of course – cake! The night concluded as everyone shared a last dance to “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi.

Bobby & Gina’s starry sky Highland Manor wedding in Apopka, Florida was truly magical. The night began as the couple exchanged vows on the lawn under a towering oak tree. Vibrant pink and orange flowers were a stunning contrast against the sophisticated hunter green bridal party gowns. Gina was a vision in her stunning long sleeve beaded lace gown!

The lighting we provided at this event was what made it truly unique. We paired wall uplighting in very soft candle light color with stars that were projected on the main wall and ceiling. The overall effect was a beautiful starry sky illusion. Additionally, a stunning circular arch was center stage at the head table, draped in florals with globe lights hung suspended above the couple. 

The reception began as we introduced the newlyweds and they danced beneath a stunning trio of chandeliers to Oh My Love by John Lennon. Guests toasted the bride and groom & enjoyed a delicious dinner provided by Dubsdread Catering, the exclusive catering and management firm of Highland Manor. But when the dance floor opened, the party really geared up! Soon, everyone packed the floor and danced through the decades from sock hop classics to current day hits. Finally, guests bid a formal farewell to the newlyweds Mr. & Mrs. Gina & Bobby Petruzzelli, set to the stylings of This Will Be Our Year by The Zombies.
