Fashionable Feather Hair Accessories

A Flair for Affairs, Orlando Weddings, photo: Art FaulknerI adore feathers! They look amazing in bouquets and centerpieces, and here you can see they’re equally fabulous when used as bridal hair accessories and headpieces!

The handcrafted designs shown here are by Head Dress Couture Designs. Katie Hestla and Heather Schroeder-Lewis are the women behind Head Dresss, which is based in Orlando, Florida.

I was thrilled to work with Grace (right) who is a huge fan of feathers too! Grace also loves color, and selected her bridesmaids hair accessories to compliment the dramatic colors featured in her wedding decor.

Custom feather hair pieces are a unique memento of the day and make great gifts! They will surely be enjoyed for years to come!

Breaking the Ice (again….)

Elisa Delgardio, Orlando Wedding PlannerThe fact that I’ve not posted a blog entry since April has been a major source of frustration for me! Especially since I so enjoy writing; but it seems that all I’ve had time for is quick little posts on twitter and facebook!

In the past few months, some amazing and wonderful things have transpired! We have completed some extraordinary weddings and special events, one of our special projects has been nominated for a 2009 Orlando Wow Award, and a few other special projects are ‘in development’. It’s no wonder I’ve not had the time write! Fortunately for me, no shortage of things to blog about going forward!

I’m excited to share everything we’ve been up to!

Modern Elegance: Kirsten & Rich’s Wedding {Portofino Bay Resort, Orlando}

February:2009

I can’t believe how time has flown by since this magnificent wedding! Our couple, Kirsten & Rich, we’re so incredibly wonderful to work with! Their February nuptials took place at St. Margaret Mary in Winter Park, and were followed by a reception at the Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando.

Kirsten was a vision in an elaborately beaded Lazaro gown; bridemaids and groomsmen looked very sharp dressed in black for this formal, evening affair.

Kirsten’s overall vision for the reception was a warm and romantic setting incorporating both traditional and modern elements: red roses, hanging crystals, the glow of candle light, satin finish linens and dramatic lighting.
