Real {Luxmore} Wedding | Carla & Brian

Car: VIP Wedding Transportation

It’s been a minute since we’ve posted a real wedding, but we’re back! After a BU-SY spring season, we’ve been flipping through all the gorgeous galleries and can’t stop swooning over all Carla + Brian’s pretty details!

They picked a perfect April day for their nuptials and featured a light + airy design for their wedding 😍

“Words cannot describe how amazing not only the Luxmore is as a wedding venue but how the team is. We feel so blessed to have been with such a wonderful team throughout our planning process. They made sure all the details were perfect before the wedding day. Tamuel and her team are all spectacular, I was paired with Zaibeth throughout planning and she is such a ray of sunshine, she made planning fun while also making sure things were right from the start. I am nothing but overjoyed and blessed that our wedding was at the Luxmore, it felt like a dream come true, my new hubby and I couldn’t be anymore happier and thankful for having our wedding there.”

Floral: In Bloom Florist

What made you pick Luxmore for your wedding venue?

We chose the Luxmore Grande Estate because it not only suited the style of our wedding and I personally always dreamed to have wedding there prior to being engaged, but it in all honesty it felt like home to me,. FUN FACT: the sofas/loveseats that are in the Bridal suite used to be my mothers, when she had to move into an apartment she had to give them away due to space. When my Husband and I had our venue tour and I saw it there I was in shock and I almost wanted to cry because the venue had a piece of my home.”

If you could relive a moment from your day, which one would you choose?

The moment I would relive from our wedding day would be Our First look! Not only did it keep us calm before the ceremony but I felt all of the feels during that moment and my husband did as well. If I had a time machine I would go back to that moment each time.”

Showered with Love

We like a good party, but we LOVE when we can help bring a client’s vision to life! Amy hosted her bridal shower at the Conservatory at the Alfond Inn in Winter Park Florida. The setting is gorgeous open space with tons of natural light, complete with domed ceilings. The bride to be wore a stunning Zac Posen 3/4 length dress paired with gold Dolce & Gabbana Mary Janes and wanted a vintage theme to match. Looking for décor in a soft pastel palette with lots of blues and gold. Take a look at some of her (and our) favorite design elements and get a bit of insight into her process with RW Style! 

Three specific elements come to mind that were curated by RW and took my breath away:  

My welcome sign: I knew I wanted one, and I knew I wanted some gold element/ and a fresh flower element. My designer told me not to worry about it, she would make it perfect….and WOW what a way to welcome my guests! It was acrylic, giving it a modern flare but still classic with cursive gold font and beautiful flowers. I was thrilled to see it come to life.  

My dessert station: Thanks to RW I was able to secure Michelle from Bakers Cottage Cakes to do our absolutely INSANE spread of cakes, pies, eclairs, macaroons, cannoli’s, chocolate covered strawberries and MORE…RW works with Michelle frequently and together they selected the perfect pieces of furniture, pie stands and floral elements to make the dessert station a stand out piece of our Bridal Brunch! I really only went to a super fun cake tasting and supplied RW with several inspo pics from pinterest and they did the rest!! I love mermaids and the ocean, so the team was even able to throw in an decor element of “trading her tail for a veil” with a vintage flair. Everyone was smitten. 

The balloon arch: I have wanted a floral and balloon arch forever, but I get nervous that most balloon arches look like a 5-year old’s birthday or an entrance to the petting zoo at the county fair LOL. The RW team took my inspo pics and concerns about making the balloons look organic like the are falling to the floor with many balloon varieties of shape, size and color, plus the incorporation of fresh florals…and they truly created something that deserves to be in a magazine. There is nothing on the internet that comes close to what they made for me…trust me I’ve looked lol. The idea of putting it on a backdrop to provide structural support AND a way to display my “Miss to Mrs.” sign and special Bride Chair with gift station was genius. And again, the small details down to the rug placement and side tables was absolutely impeccable. I cannot say enough. The backdrop provided the perfect place for bridal portraits too; photos I will cherish for life. 

“My mother and I had found RW at a bridal expo, where the representative was fun and informative with a great sample of their furniture and decor; after which we went to an open house at the warehouse and saw everything RW had to offer. I was so impressed!!  I felt like I could have been blind folded and spun around and STILL have chosen an amazing set of furniture for the shower. But even better, the team at RW events was well put together and followed up with me not only about furniture selections, but a way to make all my design dreams come true...a personal bridal shower designer and coordinator that would handle all the details for me while using all of the ideas that I had collected over months of scouring pinterest and every bridal magazine known to man!! The furniture choices were easy to make...but having someone artistically design seating areas with rugs, small decor items like a vintage GOLD telephone??? Having someone there to set up the room while I giggled with my girls in our suite???PRICELESS. The RW team was also open to using special vintage items from my grandmothers, including cut glass vases and a gold mermaid to carry beautiful cream, blue and peach flower display.  I am usually a major control freak (haha!), super type A with attention to small details and specific ideas about how exactly I want things...but the more I worked with RW, the more I realized that I could trust them to pull this off and in many cases I could let them do their work without meddling too much! Overall, I would encourage every bride to take this time and make it everything you ever dreamed of...being engaged to the man you chose to partner with for life is a HUGE and WONDERFUL decision and you deserve to celebrate it in every way. This is your chance!!! Don't miss it! While the bridal shower is traditionally something hosted by the maids, and is often a surprise, I would encourage brides to think outside the box!”

Whether you’re looking for a collaborative experience or you want us to take the reins RW Style will never disappoint. With a carefully curated collection, fresh ideas and attention to detail we can transform any space to exceed your expectations. Just ask Amy 😉

Loungin’ at The Acre

This dapper couple has a keen eye for style and loves a jewel toned palette as much as we do! 

They tied the knot at The Acre Orlando. Curating a bold and colorful lounge in this white space was only fitting. That jewel toned obsession runs deep with our clients, too! Check out this lounge we styled for an Acre bride. She wanted a conversation set in rich hues of black, blue, and green. Naturally, we used touches of gold as an accent while livening the space up with fresh greenery.

Upholstered seating: Onyx, Jewel, Sapphire, + Olivia 

Accent Tables + Furnishings: Heston, Harlow, + Lana

Real Talk // Kristina + James

This sweet couple met about three and a half years ago; Kristina was looking for a roommate and James turned out to be the perfect match in more ways than one ?

How did you meet?

“We met in New York in January of 2016. I was looking for a roommate to rent the second bedroom of my apartment in Chelsea. I posted an ad for a roommate on Craigslist and James answered the ad. He was moving from London to New York and needed a place to stay. We met up and I gave him a tour of the apartment. He loved the place and we got along instantly. Less than a year later, we were together and not too long after that, we were engaged! If you ask him how we met, he would simply say Craigslist, which has definitely gotten us some strange looks along the way!”

What made you choose Luxmore as your venue?

“We loved the venue the moment we stepped inside. It sold itself. Our ideal venue was an outdoor wedding and the space outside was perfect. With Florida weather being as unpredictable as it is we needed to feel good about getting married in the backup space the venue had. The room the Luxmore presented to us was just as beautiful as the outdoor space which made us feel it was the perfect place for us.”

What was your design inspiration?

“We both had the same idea for the wedding decor which made things much easier. White and ivory with touches of silver and gold. Simple, elegant, classic! It turned out to be everything we envisioned. “

What was your favorite part of the event?

“When my new husband sang to me! And also the cake! He would say the open bar lol.”

What factors did you consider when choosing your vendor team?

“Reviews, reviews, reviews! It was important for us to hear what other couples had to say. It really influenced our decisions when we chose our team. I would also say communication. Since we had to plan the wedding remotely, it was extremely important to us that our vendors were able to help us via phone and face time. “

Jewel Tones // Spring Inspiration

One of the things our couples love most about Cypress Grove is the Old Florida feel which is so hard to find anymore, especially in Orlando! Once surrounded by orange groves, we wanted to play into that old Florida citrus plantation feel and use the Estate’s surroundings to complement that aesthetic.

With the sunlight reflecting off gorgeous Lake Jessamine, golden rays project stunning shades of pinks and oranges which we wanted to capture in the showcased floral. The house itself stands beautifully in a crisp white with emerald green shutters to accent so the same palette was used for our linens and candy buffet. We wanted to show our couples the very landscapes they fell in love with could be implemented into their wedding day details.

We focused on rentals that our couples love to see – a unique dessert display, wood elements, and rustic chairs to complement. Our emerald buffet was the perfect accent piece to Florida Candy Buffet’s colorful display. Our Wesley farm tables and matching French Country Chairs added the southern elegance our couples love and paired wonderfully with our linen covered Captain’s tables! Incorporating two table styles adds such a fun design element 😉


Real Wedding // Melissa + Jen

We’ll admit it – blogging our events is something we need to get better with. Why not start with a few of our favorite events over the past couple of years! First up, Melissa + Jen’s hip wedding reception.

These ladies were some of the coolest we’ve worked with in a long time. Between their taste in fashion, floral, music and food – I felt a personal invite to the wedding would have been acceptable since we were long lost friends 🙂

Random: Can you believe this image below was taken at Cypress Grove Estate House? We love when photographers capture the property’s uniqueness. I’m sure you’re wondering where this is located –  it’s to the left of the gazebo, along the path, past the trees… (sounds like fairy tale directions, huh ;))

Getting Ready/The First Look

Back to their wedding  – Let’s start by breaking all the traditions! Not only did they see each other prior to the ceremony, they got ready together at Grand Bohemian Hotel. Watching Melissa and Jen, through the lens of Gian Carlo Photography, help each other with hair, makeup, polish and everything in between was so heart warming and exciting. The love these ladies have for each other is a pure joy to witness.

The Wedding Party

It was inevitable that their wedding party would be just as cool as them – these ladies and gents exude a cool and confident demeanor. Their personalities were reflective, not only in the dresses and ties they wore, but the floral bouquets and boutonnieres too. Oh, and did you notice the bride’s bouquets and how uniquely different they are.

Decor + Floral

Ain’t no party like a Cypress Grove party, cause a Cypress Grove party don’t stop (until 10pm, that is – silly noise ordinance). Not only was the music a priority, the decor was at the top of the list too. They layout included a couple of vintage social lounges (complete with cigars), family style seating, and so many little details.

Merlot + Copper

Nicole and Michael held their outdoor wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House! Featuring  one of my most favorite colors – merlot! This rich hue made an appearance in their stationery suite and throughout the floral. It was even in their specialty rentals from our inventory.


Pro tip :: incorporating your color palette or a particular design into your invites gives guests a taste of what to expect at your wedding.
Our floral bestie,  Lesley with Flowers by Lesley, dreamed up a simple but oh, so romantic ceremony-scape. It was complete with flowy white draping and gorgeous gazebo arrangements. Not to mention, the lovely lush garland to drape the back row of seating. And can we talk about how gorgeous these bridesmaids bouquets are? Above all, the hanging amaranthus is the perfect touch! The vintage rentals selected was a mix of rented sofas + chairs from our Chicago and Santa Rosa collections. They also rented farmhouse tables, crossback chairs, and  copper chargers to add a pop of color.  In addition to, great texture in the reception space.
Pro tip :: feature a mix of traditional rounds with rustic farm tables for a unique reception look.
