Our very own Amber married her love Justin as this charming barn in Oakhill. We were so happy to create a gorgeous bouquet filled with her favorite color yellow and her second love, all things country! This was our first time at the Big Red Barn but it lived up to it's name. Gayle is amazing!!! This barn has a charming history and has been fully restored to host weddings, events, family reunion and parties.
The trees are massive on this property and the country setting is so peaceful. There is a nice bridal suite that has air conditioning so you can be comfortable while getting ready. We really like that! Also the ac is great for your bridal bouquet.
This romantic bench is located on the side of the barn and how cute is this for a photo opportunity.
Ceremony decor for this rustic wedding was composed of the bride's favorite flowers - Sunflowers! We loved using our over sized blooms for the aisle decor. We added in babies breath for the rustic fresh garden feel and a touch of yellow roses and purple accents flowers.
These two are so cute and their children just added to the cuteness. We used a mini sunflower for the boutonniere for the groom and for the brides bouquet we created a lush country bouquet. Her bouquet started with her favorite sunflowers in petite and large, we added in the classic wedding bloom calla lily and topped her focal blooms with craspedia.
The reception area host some fun rustic furniture. The sweetheart table is a wooden crafted table with two matching wooden chairs. This table was draped for a perfect backdrop of the bride and groom once the lights we turned on in the evening.
One super awesome element of this barn is that it has an indoor kitchen with a ton of room for your buffet, cake, sweet table and fireplace area. Upstairs host a balcony and a second level with tables and chairs. This brings so many options for your event. Dinner upstairs and dancing downstairs or outside.
This naked cake was so much fun for us because were able to showcase our fresh blooms. and it was all because two people fell in love.
Justine and Amber danced the night away under the stars with a little hep from the market lights at the barn.
Big Red Barn
About the Barn
The Big Red Barn has been part of a working farm for nearly half a century, and through this era has been the site of many family parties and corporate functions. The Big Red Barn was hand built by local craftsmen around the late 1960s. Its foundation consists of creosote-treated twelve-inch pilings, which continue upward to serve as the main structural frame for the barn. It was originally built as a stable for horses, and included a small one-bedroom, one-bath residence inside the barn. The second story of The Big Red Barn housed hay for the horses. The original owner was a dedicated horseman in the truest sense of the word. In the early 2000s, the barn was re purposed to focus on the new owner's 250-acre citrus grove business. In 2014, the barn was thoroughly renovated to begin its third life as a special venue for weddings and other events.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Ocean Breeze is the perfect place to celebrate your love with a ceremony and wedding reception. This venue has the ocean and a wonderful indoor facility.
For this bridal bouquet we used white hydrangea, white roses and white calla lillies finished with a touch of babies breathe.
The colors for thi wedding was yellow and blue. We used yellow hydrange and blue hydrangea the accented with a polka dot inspired look, enhanced with yellow and blue billy balls.
Corsages and boutonnieres were created using white calla lilies.
The ceremony took place under the gazebo and the groom wore his Military dress. It is always an impressive look. The aisle was adorned with yellow and white rose petals and we hung mason jars down the aisle with altromeria and babies breathe. A ceremony would not be complete without a sabre arch.
Cocktail hour took place under the veranda. The weather was warm with a gentle ocean breeze. The wonderful added bonus is that guest can enjoy this space all evening long in the comfortable lounge furniture.
The wedding reception took place inside the Ocean Breeze Conference and Catering Center.
For this bride we created yellow centerpieces using hydrangea and yellow alstromeria. They were full of color and flowing with happiness.
The wedding reception was concluded with a traditonal wedding cake and a grooms cake with an Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is the official emblem and insignia of the United States Marine Corps.

A love for all things fall
Nothing says fall like the colors of burnt orange, chocolate and willow greens. This wedding brought the wonderful colors of the leaves falling in the fall from up north right here to Central Florida. In the north east where the bride was from there are trees from every genre. We took those tree's she had in her yard as a young child and incorporated them as the table number names. After a few pumpkin spiced lattes the design was completed.
This fall wedding took the inspiration from the North East and brought it to the southern sunshine state. When you use the colors of burnt orange, yellow and red they pop against our sunny blue skies.
The ceremony was accented with a burnt orange linen on the sand ceremony table and the fall leaves accenting the aisle was as if she was walking in a tree farm up north.
The guest were welcomed into the reception starting with leaves on the card box and yellow and red candied in a containers. Inside the reception ballroom the fall romance was continued. Instead of table numbers, names of trees were places. Floating candles were added above beautiful submerged candles. Crinkle taffeta linen representing the bark on trees was uses in a dark chocolate brown. Burnt Orange table runners added for the leaves and natural grape vine napkin rings wrapped burnt orange napkins.
As nature would have it, special VIP guests arrived. The properties peacocks.
