Samantha & Samantha’s Vineyard Inspired Wedding

A vineyard inspired wedding was perfect for this amazing, wine loving couple who met in California.

 

The Beginning:

Samantha and Sam met in 2003 online and became close friends until they met in person on November 23, 2008. The couple remained friends until 2011, visiting back and forth between California and Florida, when they went their seperate ways and lost touch.

In 2013, Sam realized that she didn’t want Samantha to be “the one that got away”. She made a leap of faith and moved across the country from California to Florida so the couple could reconnect.

Sam’s move cross-country reunited the two and on December 28, 2016, Cali dropped to one knee and asked Florida to marry her. Of course, she said yes, but not to be outdone, Samantha staged a second proposal on February 15, 2017, in which she proposed to Sam.

Choosing Mission Inn:

Samantha and Samantha (the Sams) stumbled upon Mission Inn when they attended our annual wedding showcase. The couple took a group tour during the showcase and fell in love. In fact, they had a hard time deciding between Legends and Marina del Rey because they loved them both so much. In the end, they chose Legends as the backdrop for their happily ever after. The pair didn’t know it at the time, but Legends would turn out to be the perfect compliment to their wedding theme.

 

Here’s a fun candid photo of them winning a prize at our first wedding show!

The Planning Process:

The Sams had a blast through the entire planning process. The couple enjoyed going to wedding shows, taking their time and choosing one vendor category at each show that they attended. For a theme, the couple wanted a vineyard feel, fitting since they met in California and love wine. The colors they chose included burgundy, slate and pops of gold.

 

The Sams are lucky ladies! Here they are at our 2019 Wedding Showcase after winning the grand prize!

Getting Ready:

Each of the Sams spent the morning on wedding day getting ready in their own ready room. Their daughters and their families were by their side every step of the way.

For Cali (each Sam is lovingly nicknamed after their home state), a piece of her dad’s favorite shirt was pinned into her vest by her brother. He wanted a way for Sam to have her dad with her on the big day.

First Look:

Samantha & Samantha both knew that they wanted a private first look with just the two of them before the big moment. The couple decided that the waterfall would be the perfect spot. Since Cali had been designated as the “br-oom” as the couple called it, it was decided that Cali would be the one waiting to see Florida. Her eyes filled with tears before she even turned to see her beautiful bride.

A Vineyard Inspired Wedding Ceremony:

The couple had a perfect, intimate vineyard inspired wedding ceremony. Cali walked down the aisle carrying her dad’s favorite leather hat and placed it on his empty seat to start the ceremony. On Florida’s side, Samantha had her daughter Brooke, her sister and best friends. On Cali’s side, Sam had her daughter, Teagan, her brother, her sister and her brother-in-law. Officiating the ceremony was Cali’s uncle, Rick, who’s personalized ceremony brought tears to everyone’s eyes.

Kind Words from our Brides:

My wife and I first met Jessica and Mission Inn on a whim when we decided to attend their “Seasons of Love” showcase. We did a group tour with Jessica and had a amazing time meeting all their vendors.

After the showcase, we couldn’t stop thinking about the beautiful location and the amazing staff that we met that day… and the delicious hors d’oeuvres that we enjoyed while we were there. After comparing locations and staff, we couldn’t imagine holding our ceremony in any other place with any other people. We then met Bri and our love for Mission Inn grew even more.

Jessica and Bri are amazing ladies with remarkable attention to detail that made our entire planning process simple and stress free. We looked forward to meeting with them at all of the various wedding shows and intentionally hunted them down just to say hello. Bri-Ica made our wedding day and night, a night to remember. We received rave reviews from those who attended who also fell in love with the scenery, food, and service… but really those reviews belong to Mission Inn and their staff. Bri-Ica really out did themselves and we look forward to visiting the resort each month as our getaway from reality and reliving our “Happily Ever After”.

Thank you Jessica and Bri for everything you have done we couldn’t be any happier.

About the Couple & the Wedding:

Claire and Will met while working in law offices in Washington D.C. Both the bride and groom came from law families and studied at rival schools. The couple chose to have the wedding in Claire’s home state of Florida. When looking for the perfect venue for their wedding day, Claire and Will wanted a venue that could accommodate all of their out of town guests.

The couple hosted a welcome reception and rehearsal dinner at Mission Inn’s Marina del Rey to kick off the weekend’s festivities. On wedding day the wedding party all got ready at the Resort and traveled to the Annunciation Church in Altamonte for the wedding. Following the ceremony guests returned to the resort for cocktail hour at Mission Inn’s Plaza de las Palmas, while the newlyweds took photos around the resort.  Before opening the reception up to their guests, Will and Claire snuck into the Grand Ballroom for a sneak peek at the ballroom and for a moment alone. Will surprised Claire with a private first cocktail together, a Sazerac, Claire’s favorite.

Claire and Will exited the ballroom and guests were sat. Wedding party entered the room full of excitement, dancing across the dance floor as they came in. Will and Claire surprised guests with a choreographed first dance, then Claire surprised guests again as she turned on her awesome light-up dancing shoes for her father-daughter dance.

Kind Words from the Mother of the Bride:

Our daughter and her now-husband had their rehearsal dinner at the marina, the cocktail reception at the Plaza de las Palmas, the wedding reception in the main ballroom and a Sunday breakfast in a reserved room. All venues were terrific and the hotel staff was accommodating to our many out-of-town guests. We all enjoyed the long weekend!

Shante & James’ Lakeside Brunch Wedding

Shante & James’ Lakeside Brunch Wedding

 

The Beginning:

African American Female Bride with Caucasian Male Groom in Green Shirt

Shante met James on a dating website in December 2015. James was living in Virginia and Shante in Florida.  The couple built their relationship on text messaging, phone calls and Skype. It was nine months before they met face to face! After that first meeting, they knew they were in love. Shante found someone that accepted her and her daughter, Kianna, and James couldn’t believe he found someone who understood him so well as Shante did.

The Engagement:

August 6th, the day before their second anniversary, James arranged a family photo shoot at a park Shante loved.  The park had a picturesque pathway and beautiful lakefront. The photographer started with photos of just Kianna and Shante. Suddenly James mentioned something about Shante forgetting her ring. Suddenly, James pulled out a black box saying “You forgot this ring.” James’ romantic speech was hard to heard over Shante’s sobbing crying but, she definitely said YES! Then James turned to Kianna and down on one knee told her that even though she wasn’t biologically his, he loved her as if she were. He asked her to be his daughter and presented her with a heart locket with a pink diamond. Cue more tears! Kianna happily said yes and gave him a big hug.

On the way home, Shante suggested picking up some pizza. They stopped at Little Caesars and James went to get the food. He came back saying they weren’t open which was shocking because it was only 8:30 p.m. When they arrived home, Shante opened the door and her family and friends jumped out shouting “Congratulations!” More tears! Everyone had driven up and set up a party in the apartment with James’ planning. Weeks of sneaking and planning and not one person said a word.  It was an amazing day to remember!

Hannah & Vito’s Christmas Wedding in Central Florida

Hannah and Vito had a gorgeous Christmas wedding in Central Florida.  The couple celebrated the holiday season with a classic color palette of red, white and pine green.

Getting Ready for a Romantic Christmas Wedding

Hannah wore a classic gown with lace details on the bodice and a tulle skirt.  The dress featured a discrete sparkle which looked like snow when the light hit it.  Hannah’s pumps acted as her something blue.  Delicate diamond jewelry and a dramatic veil completed the bride’s look.

Hannah’s bouquet was the perfect Christmas combo.  Red and white roses were complimented by evergreens and pine cones.  The bridesmaids wore crimson red, floor length gowns, the groomsmen, classic black tuxedos.  Vito wore a black tux with a wood-like bow tie, complete with a hidden Mickey, for the couple’s love of Disney.

The Christmas Wedding Ceremony in Central Florida

The ceremony was held at Mission Inn Resort’s Plaza de la Fontana.  Vito shared a moment with his family and groomsmen before heading down the aisle to await his bride.  The ceremony looked beautiful with poinsettias filling the gardens.  The ceremony chairs adorned by silver dusted pinecones hung with ribbon.  Vito stood at the altar eagerly as the flower girl stopped for a moment to splash in the fountain before making her way down the aisle.  When Hannah turned the corner with her dad, she looked stunning.  Tears of happiness rolled down Vito’s face as he took Hannah’s hands from her dad’s.  Lon Tosi of Sensational Ceremonies presided over the ceremony.  The vows were simple and heartfelt.  Hannah and Vito giggled as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife before making their way down the aisle.

Central Florida Christmas Wedding Reception

The Christmas wedding theme continued into reception.  Reception tables were draped in snow white linen and red napkins with mahogany chiavari chairs.  Arrangements of evergreens and pine sat at the center of tables, alternating with lanterns.  The couple skipped the traditional guest book and instead had each guest sign a wooden tree ornament.  Hannah and Vito opened the dance floor with formal dances.  The couple shared a father / daughter dance, mother / son dance and a first dance.  After the first dance, Vito’s sister, who is wheelchair bound, surprised the couple by rising from her wheelchair long enough to share in a dance with the couple.  Gasps were heard and tears filled the room.

Party Time

Following Hannah & Vito’s alone time, the couple returned to the party.  The couple cut the cake and opened the sweets table filled with Christmas cookies.  Hannah threw her bouquet and Vito, Hannah’s garter.  As the night when on, both the music and the party picked up the tempo.  Hannah and Vito, both lovers of electronic / house music, wanted the party to be fun.  The groomsmen appeared on the dancefloor in inflatable dinosaur costumes and family and friends raged through the night.

From the Mother of the Groom:

It was by far the perfect wedding!!  Working with Bri to book the wedding was great. She made the entire process so easy to understand and helped us decide on exactly what we wanted. The wedding coordinator was incredible to work with. We are a very detail orientated family and she helped us figure out every detail making the wedding just perfect. So many guests told us that this was the best wedding they have ever been to.

The ceremony in the Plaza de la Fontana was just picture perfect. The cocktail hour and reception was also just wonderful.  The setting was just perfect. Having a wedding at The Mission Inn when many of your guests will be coming from out of town was just wonderful. We had almost 70 guests staying there and everyone loved it especially those who play golf!!! If you are looking at having a wedding in Central Florida I would highly recommend the Mission Inn!!!!
