Who says Orlando can’t have Winter Wonderlands? We’re here to show you they’re not just for fairy tales anymore!
In the midst of a “warm” summer here in Central Florida, we thought there would be no better time than now to feature one of our favorite real weddings which was a true winter wonderland. Today we’re honored to showcase Kyerrah Brown and Ronald Batton Jr.’s wedding at the Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando. Photography by Iwona.
If there is one wish Kyerrah Batton (formerly Brown) has about her wedding it’s the desire to do it all over again.
Working with our team, she and Ronald married amongst friends and family in a specially designed winter soirée. From the flowers to the dresses to the dessert, each element was uniquely created to incorporate the magical theme in a tasteful and memorable way.
Color/Theme: Selecting white and silver with touches of royal blue and a flush of purple, the colors set the tone for a distinctly crystalized look to the entire day – truly a reflection of a winter dream. This color scheme allowed for each element to shimmer, making for quite an enchanting event!
Ronald chose an all white tuxedo from A-Z Formal Wear to complement the winter feel…
while bridesmaids wore white and royal blue dresses, complete with just the right amount of sparkle!
Without a doubt, one of the most unique bouquets we’ve ever seen was Kyerrah’s brilliant floral scepter with a snowflake by Flourish Floral Productions to reflect the theme within her own individual look.
The Special Moment: One of the most memorable moments of the day for Kyerrah was her walk down the aisle. Her nervous husband awaiting her presence, the gorgeous decor that surrounded their friends and family, and the sound of the harpist (Victoria Lynn Schultz Harpist) was simply lovely. It was a moment of dreams coming true.
The Decor: Flourish Floral Productions worked with Kyerrah and Ronald to create a posh, but elegant ceremony on the rooftop of the Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando, complete with lush white hydrangea, twinkling candles, and winteresque branches. It was truly awe inspiring and we can understand why Kyerrah has such special memories of her walk down the aisle!
Unique Traditions: Kyerrah and Ronald chose to intertwine some special traditions into their wedding that made for a one-of-a-kind wedding. To honor loved ones who had passed, they held a tea light candle lighting ceremony which was touching and memorable. Also in the ceremony, they selected to bring their marriage union together through a sand ceremony.
One additional aspect was the dedicated speech to their parents, allowing for a moment of gratitude and love to be shared.
Reception WOW: Kyerrah and Ronald’s reception was right out of a winter fairy tale. Their chic color scheme and snowflake lighting gobos complemented the theme perfectly!
We are especially fond of the sparkle the chargers gave off at each place setting. It mixed refinement with party!
But the piece de resistance?! Snow falling as guests entered the reception room while DJ Carl welcomed them. What a wow!
So Sweet: To top the evening off, guests enjoyed a winter themed cake by Party Flavors and rice crispy treats dipped in chocolate (by Marie’s Divine Desserts) with specially designed snowflake decorations. Too cute!
Bride to Bride Advice: Kyerrah’s advice to brides to be?
“Know what you want [and]…don’t settle for what you really desire, you will see the difference in the end.” She recommends putting a realistic budget AND timeline together to ensure you have enough time to save for your dream wedding. Being realistic relieves much of the stress associated with planning your wedding.
Kyerrah and Ronald’s wedding wasn’t just memorable for them and their guests, but also for us! We enjoyed helping design such a unique theme (especially in Orlando!) and made for memories of a lifetime.
