Pirouettes, plies and tutus are the tour de force for little girls dreaming of becoming a ballerina. For those of us that yearned for all things girly, fairytale weddings and ballerina goals went hand in hand growing up. This dreamy masterpiece of wedding inspiration in hues of Rose Quartz and Greenery fits those visions effortlessly. As the brainchild of Corner House Photography and Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design their collaboration captures the beauty of ballet while dripping with wedding romance and organic beauty surrounding the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens in Florida. This editorial is full of pretty little details that you can incorporate into your day. It’s fresh, gorgeous and features not only ballet dancers from Orlando Ballet Theater, but a couple whose love story dances into our own hearts – just as much as the bride’s Maggie Sottero gown.
Taylor Sambola and Arcadian Broad are both well-known ballet dancers. Classically trained with a modern twist, Arcadian shined as the dashing groom. Just as a bride should, Taylor stole the show with her angelic aura and natural beauty. She gracefully postured into incredible moves while being held by her groom. These two lovebirds met during their first year of residency with the theater and have been inseparable since. Artistry Hair and Makeup created glamorous up dos that had a slightly messy feel for our bridesmaids Kalyn Roberson and Paulina Genovese, along with our bride Taylor. Airbrush makeup and matte pink hues were the perfect natural choice for the models. Stunning handmade bracelets by Laurie Silva, with Eric Bari Design were the perfect gift for the bridesmaids, while a two-karat ring by Littman Jewelers graced the hand of the bride. From the sweetheart table to the wedding cake display, French era brass alongside antique glassware from Timeless Charm Rentals were incorporated. A delicious Couture Cakes by Lia blended pearl and lace details on a three-tiered masterpiece. Lia matched the lace fondant appliqué to Taylor’s wedding dress, which was designed by Maggie Sottero from Casa di Bella. French country wooden chairs graced the ceremony aisle as the bride, groom, and bridesmaids posed against floral and ribbon designs handcrafted by Katie. The beauty of ballet is that it is ever changing. Each ballet dancer has their own style and at times incorporates more of a contemporary feel. Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals was able to help bring in a contemporary element with their jaw dropping sweetheart chair that literally stretched the height of the first floor. While modern, its crisp white fabric paired perfectly with the stunning Sperry tent. For the a final adagio, Arcadian lifted Taylor with pure romance and flair that stole our hearts.
