Orlando Wedding Planning

Lauren & Jack, October 19th, 2019, Club Lake Plantation: Apopka, FL

As Bella Sposa Events glances back on October 19, 2019 we remember the romantic and enchanting wedding that took place at Club Lake Plantation. It was Lauren & Jack’s wedding day – never have we experienced so much love in a room. It was such a perfect day. 

This adorable couple – Jack and Lauren – met in high school, they were both on the Swimming and Water Polo team. Lauren had a BIG crush on Jack all throughout high school but the two did not start dating until college. 

On a trip to Hawaii, Jack planned for a photoshoot with a local photographer. During the photos, Jack got down on one knee and proposed to the girl of his dreams. It was a picture perfect moment. 

Funny enough, prior to their engagement the couple had already signed their contract with Club Lake Plantation! They knew they had to get married there from the second they stepped foot on property. Lauren says she fell in love instantly with the property and loved the cozy vibes the venue gave off. 

After 14 months of planning their wedding from 2,000+ miles away – the couple’s wedding day was finally here! 

Lauren spent the morning in the Club Lake bridal suite alongside her bridesmaids and mom. They had their hair and makeup done by the amazing ladies at Before the Aisle. The girls spent the morning laughing and creating special memories. 

Before walking down the aisle, the couple took a moment to read letters from one another in private. It was such a sweet moment.

Once Lauren had her gorgeous Mia Solano gown on it was time for her grandfather to walk her down the aisle. Family and friends stood as the barn doors opened and all eyes went to Lauren. She looked absolutely stunning. 

This special couple wanted to ensure their love story was accurately represented throughout their special day – both Lauren and Jack lost a parent and they wanted to feel their presence throughout the day. 

During their personal vows, a sun shower started – they were both so nervous it wouldn’t stop. But after starting – it quickly ended and they both said it was their parents there with them showering them with love and blessing their marriage. *cue the tears* 

After their personal vows were shared – they were pronounced husband and wife and shared their first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. 

The couple welcomed guests to a cocktail hour for their enjoyment – while the couple escaped to take portraits with the talented Sarah Ormiston Photography

Upon entering the reception space – the guests tables were elegantly decorated with taper stick candles they created a romantic element along with gorgeous floral arrangements and greenery. It was breathtaking. 

Guests gathered for an evening full of delicious food, yummy drinks, amazing music and dancing, laughter and fun. It was such a perfect evening. 

Our DJ Rocks got the party started and the dancing wouldn’t stop. The couple along with their friends and family had such a fun time. The room was full of love – it was radiating. 

Thank you so much Lauren and Jack for allowing Bella Sposa to be a part of your special day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love.

Kaci & Adrian, January 26th, 2019, St. Joseph’s Church & The Banyan Estate

We could not have asked for a more perfect day on January 26th, 2019. It was Kaci & Adrian’s wedding day, and it was absolutely perfect. 

The couple met in 2011, but didn’t start dating until years later when they rekindled on a dating app. Flashforward, and Adrian was down on one knee asking Kaci to be his future wife. 

Adrian planned the most romantic proposal. He took Kaci to an art studio owned by a friend. He has the lights dimmed, and string renditions of Coldplay songs playing throughout the studio. He brought her to an art piece hanging on the wall (that he created). It was made up of pictures of the couple, lyrics to their favorite songs, and on the side it read “Will You Marry Me?” When Kaci realized this, she turned around and Adrian was on one knee. 

The couple was so excited and started planning their wedding immediately, and that is when they contacted us to help with their special day. The Bella Sposa team wanted to ensure Kaci & Adrian could enjoy their day and feel relaxed.

They decided to have their ceremony in a traditional church setting which made the decision easy: St. Joseph Church. Following this decision they then picked out The Banyan Estate for their cocktail hour & reception. 

The morning of January 26th, Kaci got ready alongside her bridesmaids and mom. The ladies at Bella Chic Beauty & Mirth Salon perfected their hair and makeup and helped to make the girls look gorgeous.  

After getting ready, the couple delivered letters to each other to read. It was a beautiful & emotional moment captured by Nick & Lauren Photography.

Once family and friends gathered at the church, it was time for Kaci to walk down the aisle with her mother.

It was a beautiful ceremony; the room was full of love. The most special people in their lives got to witness the two becoming one.

Once the new Mr. & Mrs. said “I Do,” their guests made their way to Banyan Estate where all of the fun got started. The couple and their guests got to share in an evening full of delicious food, fun music and L O V E.

Once the band, Greg & Brian, started playing an immediate energy filled the room. Everyone was dancing, laughing and having fun. It was contagious.

Kaci & Adrian said their favorite part of the entire evening was their last private dance. The room cleared out as their guests lined up for the sparkler exit, and the two shared a private last moment together. It is something they will always remember.

Thank you Kaci & Adrian for allowing Bella Sposa Events to be apart of your most special day. We wish you both nothing but a lifetime of love and happiness. XO
