A Distinguished Garden Wedding in Orlando, Florida
Stunning and Modern Ceremony
Natalia & Chris’s distinguished garden wedding was set in Cypress Grove Estate House on 23rd April, 2022. The best place to say “I do”. The View is ideal for breathtaking wedding photos surrounded by nature, luscious greenery and beautiful trees.
This wedding was all about blending the beauty of delicate details with the nature of this enchanted estate.
Natalia & Chris met on Cinco de Mayo in Orlando through mutual friends from college. Natalia just graduated from UF the weekend prior and was getting ready to move down to Miami for work so she was definitely not expecting to meet her future husband that weekend.
They ended up doing a long distance for 2.5 years between Orlando and Miami before they ended up moving up to Orlando in 2019.
Natalia and Chris got engaged at the Biltmore in early December during a trip to Asheville. They were walking through the gardens for quite some time before they walked up the hill to get a “good panoramic” photo of the entire Biltmore house. To Natalia’s surprise, Chris had a photographer hiding at the top of the hill waiting to snap the entire proposal.
To begin with the wedding weekend celebrations, they held their rehearsal dinner at Dubsdread Golf club, given their guest a little sneak peek of what awaited them over this special weekend! The welcome sign and wedding’s stationary were from Minted Weddings.
White is always timeless bridal and black adds detail and dimensions to decor. Resulting in a powerful combo that won’t go out of style.
For their bouquet and boutonniere they opted for natural foliage and flowers. Highlighting ranunculus and anemones mixed in with white roses that brought a natural elegance to die for.
The bride’s squad looked amazing in their olive leaf pajamas. Laughter & Champagne were the perfect pair with those beautiful hair styles and makeup by the talented Bronze + Glow Beauty team.
This beautiful bride chose a simple, full length and sheer veil to match with her white V-neck, timeless and elegant gown with a large dress train that captured our attention from Ines Di Santo, created to reflect Natalia’s enchanting spirit.
As can be seen, I loved being able to look through that lens and zoom in an unforgettable moment of love between Natalia and her mom.
The dapper groom wore a classic suit from Leonardo 5th Avenue with a plain black loafer style driving shoes from Crockett & Jones that gave a special touch to his attire.
As a result, on top of the stunning aesthetic, the couple kept it elegant and sophisticated with their apparel.
Of course we were in love with Natalia & Chris front-of-house first look and the hugs and happiness just radiating from them. After taking a moment for each other in the gardens outside they walked in to their most important moment.
The ceremony was on site amongst green gardens just under a luscious gazebo. Since there was already a lot of greenery in the outdoor courtyard, In Bloom Florist filled the entire arch with gorgeous white florals and a line of candles on the ceremony aisle.
The sweet moment with her parents walking her down the aisle was absolutely perfect!

Monochromatic flowers combined perfectly with the gals’ black gowns to create a clean, fresh and uncluttered look.

For the reception, round and rectangular tables were the perfect mix together with lush greenery garlands spanning the table length and centerpieces with blooms that brought on romantic vibes.
Also they went for an elegant all-white guest table design, large crystal hurricane vases and beautiful flowers to enhance the space.
Additionally for the main table, they had repurposed the ceremony arch as their backdrop that gave sophisticated elegance to the ambiance.
I was such a huge fan of the reception space that the amazing wedding planner Roots to Stems created with the rentals from our beloved RW events!
On the cake side the sweet couple kept it simple so they selected gentle swirls dressed with white flowers, a simply elegant and beautiful combination from Bakers Cottage Cakes
Let’s get party started!
Don’t forego the live band! With this purpose in mind they opted for Phase 5 band who made the newlyweds and their guests dance the whole night away.
Bubbles exit instead of sparklers? YES! Why not?
I was so happy to be a part of Natalia + Chris’ distinguished garden wedding day!
