Reception Tablescape // Southern Wedding

If you know our team, you’re well aware that we LOVE a well designed and thought out reception tablescape – from the linen, to the floral, and all the way to the china + flatware, the RW ladies are all about the aesthetics.

The reception is the perfect opportunity to bring the wedding vision to life, and to make a bold statement guests will never forget!

The Luxmore Grande Estate ballroom was completely transformed for this elaborate reception set-up. All the details capture the theme, melding modern and classic elements all while keeping the traditional and southern character of the estate.

The gorgeous French blue, ivory, and gold palette was a major theme in designing the reception tablescape. The idea was to create a sleek aesthetic while still providing a soft and romantic ambiance.

The patterned napkins contrast beautifully against the solid ivory table linen, while the tall centerpieces create height and add texture. The layered china also mimics the palette by pulling in multiple tones and styles.

The sweetheart table was another beautifully designed space from our southern wedding styled shoot. The design plays off the reception tablescape but also has its own original flare, helping it stand out from the rest.

Mixing an exposed wooden table with linen is always a great way to break up the layout. It also adds diversity to the overall look.

Southern Wedding Ceremony

Last week we started a mini-series on a luxurious styled shoot we hosted with rentals + designs fit for a southern belle. In case you missed it, we started off with the first area your guests will see – the welcome station {perfect for featuring a fun welcome beverage or treat and gift + sign-in table}! This week is all about the ceremony space and making it your own.

This stunning space married the traditional southern wedding with a new age flare! We love the use of the magnolia leaves and other greenery in this unique arch created by Flowers by Lesley. The elegant Gold Louis chairs, from RW Events, had an old world charm that popped against all the greenery on the Luxmore Estate Patio.

Your wedding ceremony is arguably the most important part of the entire event, and the most intimate. Collaborate with your vendors and don’t be afraid to dream up something bold and unique smile emoticon While creating an area that reflects both the bride and groom is important, this space is also a precursor to your reception. The design here is a great way to give your guests a glimpse of what’s to come!

Cypress Grove | Blush + Copper

Introducing Kylie

Anytime we get to dress up Cypress Grove Estate House, we’re excited. Oh, but when we get to design with new tables and chairs **slow clapping*** YES!! Our Kylie farmhouse tables and sand Louis chairs were the perfect addition to this blush and copper color palette.

Styling tip: mix the metals and step away from traditional vessels

We brought in some vintage candlesticks to eclectically clash with the copper flatware. Flowers by Lesley use blush ceramic vessels from our styling inventory for the arrangements. And let us not overlook the tall tapers to add a little touch of drama!

 

Shout out to our pals at Dishie Rentals for the blush stoneware and copper flatware!

The Welcome | Southern Wedding

While we have seen Luxmore Grande Estate styled in so many ways, at its core it will always be an elegant southern estate. That is why we are so excited to share to share this stunning modern take on a southern wedding with you!! Over the coming weeks we’ll be breaking down a luxurious styled shoot we hosted and chatting about all the details that make this fit for a southern belle ❤️ We’re starting off with the first thing your guests will see – a welcome station!

Welcoming your guests in style!

We love the soft blues and neutrals used in this color palette for a wedding welcome station. The antique rentals echoed the traditional southern charm, while accents such as the gold geometric vases brought a modern edge. The clean floral also added a sleek finish while still feeling classic.

Featured Inventory :: Winter, Oates, & assorted vases + mirror

Putting together a unique and personalized wedding welcome station for guests is a great way to make them feel at home during your event! Your guests are your closest family and friends and they are excited to celebrate with you. So a thoughtful welcome station is the perfect way to greet them!

Have fun with creating your welcome area, and use meaningful details to tie it back into the rest of your décor & theme. Floral accents can play of your bouquets and centerpieces, while accessories can accent your color palette. Personalized touches such as a customized welcome sign can bring the entire space together.

Stay tuned for more details from the reception space, our grand entryway, and a sweet cake display!

RW Chronicles // Happy Hour

Everyone knows Luxmore Grande is home to some of the most beautiful weddings Orlando features every year! While we love seeing vendors at weddings and events, nothing beats spending a night off with good company and specialty cocktails! After all, Happy Hour is the best hour! =)

   
But why limit happy to just an hour? We put our cocktail mixing skills to the test to create some killer cocktails fitting to match the crowd we were entertaining. Combine the Bad and Boujee with with our favorite Sassy Photobooth and Sasha’s “Madd Vybez” (see what I did there ?) and we were in for a night of fun! They say Happy Hour is where all the best decisions are made. So we chose to showcase some of our new inventory along with the RW Lookbook (keep your eyes peeled for the 2019 copy coming soon)!

   
Ah Happy Hour…For many it’s something looked forward to all day, as it’s tied directly with that triumphant feeling you get when you realize that the work day is in fact over. While we are all useful at work, we are irreplaceable at Happy Hour =)      

We hope to see you at our next one soon!

Special thanks to Flowers By Lesley, Madd Vybez, Sassy Photobooth and Ashley Jane Photography!

Styling | Lush Cosmetics

Keeping the design in-line with their signature brand, we brought in garden picked wildflowers. They were organically assembled in mason jars.

The final look was a disorderly array of their products. Certainly, in the coolest way possible.

Their team was tasked with testing and learning about the new products. Because of this, we created a relaxed environment to ensure comfort. Hence, the day bed and poufs! Each space was inspired around a signature Lush Cosmetics scent.

Featured Inventory | Iceland

Curating a collection

Yes, we’re pickers; we’re always sourcing and gathering new items for our vintage inventory. During downtime, we can be found at local antique fairs, boutique shops, and flea markets.

While working through a local market, I passed these vintage carts several times. They were filthy, tarnished, missing wheels and needed a lot of TLC. Then Dede spotted them and immediately saw potential. For instance, floral stands or dessert stands.

After a few weeks in the shop, she’s done and ready for events! Meet, Iceland.

Seems like Dede and Flowers by Lesley  had the perfect idea for this floral stand. Afterall, why would we let gorgeous blooms go to waste. Guests can easily enjoy them for days following the event!

Special thanks to AIS Portraits for the stunning photos.

Grand Staircase | Luxmore Grande Estate

Our grand staircase is one of the most stunning and talked about features of Luxmore Grande Estate.

It’s a major reason current owners decided to purchase the property and turn it into the beautiful event space it is today! Our grand staircase makes for an absolutely breathtaking entrance, creating a dramatic statement as guests arrive for your big day!

Photography opportunities on the staircase are endless! We see wedding photographers create truly memorable moments with brides and grooms on the grand staircase. Many tears of joy have been shed on this staircase. Often times, couples choose to do their first look here. With so many angles, lighting, and stunning chandelier to play-off of, you will have no shortage of gorgeous pictures.

It also provides the perfect canvas to play around with décor and styling, making this area customizable for each Luxmore Grande Estate wedding. From floral, to draping, or clean & classic you can’t go wrong with styling our grande staircase for your event! One of our favorite designs is the creating of our owner and Flowers by Lesley. Would you believe it features over 12,000 stems of assorted white flowers!?
