Marissa and Andrew tied the knot at an al fresco lakeside wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House in Orlando, FL last March. This beautiful couple met just a couple of years ago at Disney World and wanted to pay homage to where they met as well as have a clean white and green wedding.
The bride got ready at the bridal suite in Cypress Grove. Bridesmaids and best guy friend got ready in blush robes while popping champagne! The bridesmaids wore chiffon minimalistic dresses with the maid of honor wearing a delicate floral chiffon gown. The girls rocked sparkly Keds for a comfortable but snazzy statement! Marissa’s gown was absolutely stunning! She wore a lace applique fitted gown with invisible neck line and gorgeous back detail. She looked so beautiful her entire bridal party was smiling from ear to ear when they got their first glimpse of the bride.
The men played cards and shared some beers while getting ready. All men wore grey suits and blush ties and the groom sported a monochromatic grey tie with grey suit.
Marissa and Andrew chose to do a first look and boy do we love it when our couples step out of tradition! It gave us so much time for some beautiful shots of these two! The first look was in the rose garden of Cypress Grove. The garden is full of beautiful rose bushes perfect for their Al Fresco Lakeside Wedding.
Also, can we talk about Marissa’s bouquet?! It had gorgeous ivory roses, bright fern, and Italian seeded eucalyptus. This bouquet fit perfect for their Al Fresco Lakeside Wedding theme.
Al Fresco Lakeside Wedding Ceremony
They kept the details of their Al Fresco Lakeside Wedding minimalistic and clean for the ceremony as well. The aisles were lined with seeded eucalyptus and white folded chairs. The white altar at Cypress Grove is along the shore of Lake Jessamine perfect for a romantic evening wedding. Dreamy white linens and greenery adorned the altar and a sparkling chandelier hung over Marissa & Andrew. These two had some adorable little ones walking down the aisle! The flower girl and ring bearer were soooo adorable. We sincerely love how much Marissa laughed during her wedding ceremony it definitely caught her joy and Andrew couldn’t keep his eyes off of her.
Al Fresco Lakeside Wedding Reception
This market light reception was held at the amphitheater of the Cypress Grove Estate House. Guests found their tables with clean white frame table numbers also matching their wedding invitations. Probably our favorite parts of the reception was their sweet heart table. Instead of a Mr. and Mrs. sign they used bride and groom mickey mouse ears to pay homage to where they first met. The cake was a beautiful three tier ivory buttercream cake with eucalyptus garnish as a fresh green detail. The bride and groom danced the night away under the stars and said goodbye with a different but beautiful white ribbon tassel exit.
