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.

A Moment Alone

As the party went on, the couple stopped for a moment alone on Plaza de las Palmas.  Vito spun his new bride under a sea of market lights as they danced under the stars.

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.

Happily Ever After

Hannah and Vito ended the night with a romantic sparkler exit.  Family and friends bid them farewell as the escaped into the night.  The couple didn’t go too far though.  They met up with the bridal party in the Billiards Room for one last epic photo to end 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!!!!

Jocelyn and Stephen’s Romantic Burgundy and Gold Wedding Weekend

Large Wedding Party in Burgundy and Gold with Bride and Groom on Golf Course

Jocelyn and Stephen had a romantic burgundy and gold wedding weekend at Mission Inn’s Legends Ballroom.

Jocelyn saw the Legends ceremony space on her venue tour and instantly fell in love with the classic romance that surrounded the space.  Stephen was sold when he heard all the amenities that his guests could enjoy at the resort.  The couple wanted a full wedding weekend that could be an escape for family and friends from the everyday hustle and bustle.

Wedding weekend began on Friday evening.  Jocelyn and Stephen’s nearest family and friends arrived for the wedding rehearsal.    The rehearsal was followed by a Tuscan inspired rehearsal dinner with bridal party and immediate family. After the rehearsal guests checked into their hotel rooms and got settled in for the night.

 

Jocelyn rented a Mission Inn villa for herself and the bridal party for the night before the wedding.  Breakfast and coffee was catered through the resort to the villa as the bridal party fussed over all of the details of the day.  Epy Joel did an outstanding job artistically making over the entire bridal party.  While the ladies spent the day getting ready, the guys headed to Mission Inn’s Trap and Skeet range for a friendly shooting competition.

Before the wedding, the bridal party acted as messengers and exchanged the couple’s pre-wedding gifts to each other.  From Stephen, Jocelyn received a beautiful custom pair of Jimmy Choo pumps with their wedding date engraved on the bottom.  For Stephen, Jocelyn chose Cartier cufflinks, a bottle of “Courage” cologne and a pair of Christian Louboutin’s to give him courage and strength for his walk down the aisle.

Jocelyn insisted through the planning process that she did not want to do a first look. Stephen was a bit surprised on the week leading up to the wedding when she changed her mind.  He was so excited for a first look but also so nervous.  He stood in the hotel lobby anxiously awaiting his bride.  When he felt a hand touch his shoulder, he had to hold back tears of joy as he turned around.  Stephen gasped when he found his future brother in law dressed in a full wedding gown.  After exchanging a few brotherly punches, the two headed to the ceremony location to wait for the big moment.

A 1948 Cadillac Limousine drove Jocelyn from her Villa to the Legends Courtyard.  As she sat in the car waiting for her escort, she looked like royalty.  It was like watching the royal wedding.

Before walking down the aisle, Jocelyn wanted to do a real first look with her son.  It was truly a special moment.  Her son burst into tears when he saw his mother.  She hugged him tight before he headed down the aisle.

The ceremony space was set uniquely with seating in a half moon around the bride and groom.  Each guest had a perfect view.  Fresh floral hung over the fountain.  A string quartet greeted guests and preformed the wedding processional.  When Jocelyn made her way down the aisle tears of happiness filled Stephen’s eyes.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy hors d’oeuvres on the Legends Terrace. During cocktail hour, the couple travelled by golf cart throughout the resort for photos at some of Resort’s most iconic portrait locations, including the Mission Inn Waterfall.

Beside the entrance of the ballroom was a large, eight foot mirror with guest seating assignments.  Jocelyn chose this mirror knowing that after the wedding she wanted to place it in their home, so that she could always have a piece of their wedding day.  Throughout cocktail hour, the curtains of the ballroom stayed shut so that guests could not see what awaited them.

As guests entered the reception space, the curtains were opened to reveal Legends Ballroom elegantly draped in ivory, gold and burgundy.  Ivory swag hung from the ceiling, accenting the chandeliers in the room.  A custom white dance floor sat at the center of the room.  On one side of the dance floor was the wedding cake and sweetheart table.  Across from the cake was a seating area reserved for the couple.

The wedding cake was created by Mercedes with The Cake Studio – Orlando.  She custom-designed a five tier hanging cake decorated in white fondant with Swarovski crystals.  The cake stand hung from ceiling and was dripping with fresh floral.  It was paired with a fun groom’s cake that featured a life-like replica of Stephen popping out of the cake with a barbell.  The cake was a fun way of displaying Stephen & Jocelyn’s love for body building and physical fitness.

The seating area for the newlyweds featured a gorgeous gold and ivory chaise lounge.  This piece was custom designed for Jocelyn and driven from Mexico for the occasion.  The chaise was positioned on another piece of white dance floor with a wall of roses behind it.

After introductions, toasts and formal dances were finished, Jocelyn and Stephen were asked to be seated in the chaise lounge.  The couple was surprised as Jose Perez and Kaylee Bohgos from Dance It Studios performed a gorgeous, choreographed dance to Sarah Evan’s version of I Could Not Ask for More.  The dance was absolutely gorgeous and looked like a scene from Dancing with the Stars.  It was a beautiful gift from the best man and maid of honor.

After Jose and Kaylee cleared the dance floor, the bride and groom cut the cake and the party began.

Guests danced the night away with the newlyweds.  Towards the end of the night, Stephen snuck away to the Legends Terrace for a moment alone with his new bride.  Together they danced under the stars before rejoining their guests for the grand sparkler exit.

The wedding weekend came to an end on Sunday morning as Jocelyn and Stephen bid farewell to their guests over a wedding bon voyage brunch.  The brunch was a perfect way to get together with friends and family one last time before saying goodbye.

From the first day we saw Legends, we were in love with the peaceful atmosphere and aesthetic of the location.
