Cassie & Ryan’s Wedding + Video

Cassie & Ryan's Wedding + Video | Photography & Video by Castaldo Studio | ReunionResort.com/WeddingBlog

Cassie and Ryan met about four years ago. Cassie had just moved from New York to Florida and the two met at work. Ryan worked as a banquet server and Cassie was hired as the Event Manager. They spent many long days and nights together planning, executing and cleaning up after weddings and events, that it only made sense when they happily became a couple!

Their wedding was a perfect reflection of their personalities, they tastes and most importantly, their love for each other. The décor was classically modern, with touches of tradition. They used white, black and silver accents and took the beautiful backdrop of Reunion and transformed it into an elegant Saturday evening wedding. Cassie and Ryan can still not say enough wonderful things about Reunion’s sprawling property, elegant green space and the attention to detail by every member of the team.

They saw that their best wedding memory was having their family and friends from all over the world join them to celebrate their marriage. They loved the convenience of Reunion’s villas so close together which allowed them to spend even more time with their loved ones. Cocktail parties, welcome receptions, rehearsal dinner, the wedding day and their family Water Park day made an eventful weekend full of celebrating.

Their entire family had a wonderful vacation and they look to make staying at Reunion an annual tradition!

Melodye & Adam’s Wedding

Melodye and Adam’s love story started in a CrossFit Class.  Both recognized that they had a special connection from the first time they met. A poem Melodye wrote Adam shares the beginning of their journey.

“When I first met him, I was in the middle of a WOD
I got a glimpse of his really hot bod!
But I knew there was more to him than that
So I waited and waited for him to come chat.
Finally he came over and said hi
I saw such kindness in his eyes
At that moment something in me came alive
So I showed him I could deadlift 185.
We talked and talked and set a date
A date that would become our fate
I knew from our first kiss
that we would share a life of bliss
Best friends, soul mates, the One
Doesn’t come close to whats been done.”

Adam also built a strong relationship with Melodye’s eleven year-old son, Jarrett, that completed their connection. The wedding was an intimate, elegant, fairy tale with many personal touches.

“I have been a single mom for 10 years so to have my son walk me down the aisle to the man of our lives, it was something so intimate and beautiful and something we wanted to share with just our families.”

Tina & Alex’s Wedding

Tina and Alex’s love story began a long time ago …. in 6th grade.  They decided that they needed to meet other people because, even in 6th grade, they were getting way to serious, so they went their separate ways. But if you ask Tina, she will tell you Alex broke up with her (shhhhh).

Tina & Alex’s Wedding at Reunion Resort |#ReunionWOY Entrant | Photo by Cameron Nunez Photography | www.ReunionResort.com/WeddingBlog

In high school they each made bad love decisions, but always remained each others best friend. It was at that time that Tina and Alex made a pact to get married at 30 if they each were not married by then.  Little did they know that this whole time they were each others “one.” Years later, after a night out with friends, their love was rekindled while saying good night in front of an elevator, everything fell into place from there.

A friend suggested that they check out Reunion Resort for the wedding and they thought it was the perfect place. Tina fell in love with the venue right away, while Alex fell in love with the Water Park.

Morgan & Trey’s Wedding

Morgan & Trey's Wedding at Reunion Resort |#ReunionWOY Entrant | Photo by William Arthur | www.ReunionResort.com/WeddingBlog | #ReunionResort #Wedding #Ceremony #Reception #OrlandoWedding

Morgan and Trey have been together since they were 16! They met in high school in Oviedo, FL, and it somehow lasted through their awkward years of growing up. Their relationship even grew through the crazy years of college at Florida State University. They took their relationship slow and even through the ups and downs, Morgan always knew she wanted to end up with Trey, as he is such a gentleman.

Trey asked Morgan to marry him on the top of the Empire State Building in New York City.  Between this grand proposal and the close bond between their families and friends, Morgan knew their wedding was going to be special. Because their families have known each other for years and their friends watched them grow as a couple, Morgan and Trey wanted a sentimental but fun party to celebrate their journey and kick off this new chapter.

Morgan’s wedding inspiration came from a video of a beach wedding that took place a few years ago.  She said “It was beautiful, classic, sophisticated and timeless, but yet casual, light and so much fun!” She wanted to somehow re-create the atmosphere that reminded her some much of their relationship. The outdoor location for their ceremony was selected because the couple both grew up in Florida and love being outside.  The sentimental touches such as their officiant, who is a longtime family friend, added a sweet and classic feel to the ceremony. The reception was a casual affair with a lounge-like feel so that their guests could be comfortable talking, mingling, dancing and enjoying themselves.

Francesca & Matthew’s Wedding

Frankie and Matt first met while attending classes in college in Ft. Myers, Florida. Though they had noticed each other in class it wasn’t until they began to spend time out of school that they realized they had something special. Both now Certified Public Accountants, they wanted to make their wedding day not only memorable for themselves but for their guests as well. They decided on Reunion for their big day as the Resort provided the bride the elegance she desired and the groom the opportunity to enjoy both of his passions, his bride and golf.

The Bride looked spectacular in her wedding gown with a beaded bodice and matching tiara. Her bridesmaids wore the signature purple color with matching teardrop earrings and side swept up-dos. The men sported classic black tuxedos and the groom stood out with a white vest and bowtie.

They achieved this by choosing design and décor that complimented the existing ambiance. At the ceremony in Linear Park, Frankie and Matt decided upon a white colonnade with fresh flowers. Aisle markers in the same signature colors and custom programs added those special details.

Cocktail Hour left nothing to be desired. With much of the family coming from New York, it was important to Frankie and Matt to include some of “home” for them by offering a fabulous cocktail hour. In addition to the passed hors d’oeuvres offered, stations to include pasta, sliders and shrimp were also on the menu.

At the reception, the elegance continued with gorgeous table settings in the Grande Ballroom. Purple linen paired with silver chaivari chairs, glass beaded chargers and silver napkins complimented the beautiful centerpieces perfectly. As a special touch, beaded napkin rings were used to make the napkins settings in to bows. Frankie and Matt included many special touches to include a photo booth, barista station and even the guests escort cards presented in Mikasa frames as their favors.

Amy & Erik’s Wedding

Amy & Erik's Wedding at Reunion Resort || www.ReunionResort.com/WeddingBlog || Photos by Soltren Photography || #ReunionResort #OrlandoWedding

Amy and Erik first met at the beginning of their college careers at a gathering neither of them even wanted to attend. Though they knew many of the same people they hadn’t met each other before that evening. It seemed that after meeting at the party they kept running in to each other everywhere they went. Erik finally convinced Amy to go on a date and there the real story begins. Together they made it through college and the beginning of their professional careers all while sharing laughs and making memories along the way.

Amy & Erik's Wedding AReunion Resort Wedding by Soltren Photography

The Bride and Groom decided on a peacock inspired 20’s theme for their wedding. The Bride adorned a bird cage veil and a flirty flowing gown while the groom opted for a charcoal suit and vintage inspired brooch for his boutonniere. The bridal party complimented this bold color palette with peacock blue dresses and light gray suits.

The Groom used his creativity and expertise to customize their stationary from the invitations all the way to the seating chart. Instead of a traditional guest book, the Bride and Groom asked for guests to sign pieces from a Jenga  game showcasing that family and friends are an important piece to building a strong and lasting marriage.

This out-of-the-box couple chose Reunion’s signature Eleven Restaurant for their cocktail hour and reception. With groom-designed centerpieces, they allowed the existing ambiance and décor to shine.

Photo Dec 20, 10 05 44 AMAmy and Erik decided on a station style menu as they wanted to provide many dining options for their guests and still keep the party going. A salad station complete with Caprese and Caesar options, baked brie, the groom’s favorite beef wellington, and lobster tail were among some of their cuisine. This fun couple also decided to have a cupcake wedding cake and incorporated the bold jewel tones down to the icing.
