Jeannine and Calvin’s intimate Mission Inn wedding was pure joy! The couple celebrated their love for one another, surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and family members. The Mission Inn Resort & Club is nestled among the beautiful rolling hills of Howey-in-the-Hills in Lake County, Florida, a quick 30 minutes from Downtown Orlando. Whether it’s the stunning lakeside views, lush green golf course or towering palm trees, this venue truly showcases the best of what Central Florida has to offer.

The couple’s February wedding began with their ceremony on the lawn. Jeannine was simply stunning as she walked down the aisle to ‘Marry Me’ by Train, performed live by Soundwave’s guitarist Pete Lapre. Following the ceremony was cocktail hour, where Pete played a beautiful variety of the couple’s favorite songs – from ‘All Of Me’ and ‘Here Comes the Sun’ to ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ and ‘Time of Your Life.’

In the reception space we uplit the walls in a beautiful deep purple, and provided pinspotting on the cake, and newlywed table. The tables were dressed with a sophisticated combination of black and gold accents. Soundwave’s owner and DJ Les Kopasz introduced Mr. & Mrs. Simmons to the upbeat ‘I Got a Feeling’ by the Black Eyed Peas. Guests had a marvelous time which consisted of a delicious buffet dinner, dancing, cake cutting, and toasts. Perhaps the sweetest moment of the evening was the father daughter dance, and the absolute joy on Jeannine’s father’s face. At last, guests made their exit and a brilliant sparkler sendoff to conclude this delightful intimate Mission Inn wedding.

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.
