THE LOW-DOWN

In their search for Orlando wedding venues, Alexandra (Alex) and Eric discovered the beautiful Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. They quickly decided that it was the perfect wedding venue for them! Their late-January wedding took place in the hotel’s romantic Piazza Centrale. It looked and felt like they exchanged their vows in the center of a quaint Italian village!

After their lovely ceremony, the couple transitioned with their guests to a stunning reception in the Venetian Ballroom. We loved all of the soft gold touches Alex and Eric included in their event design! We thought it looked wonderful paired with the rich burgundy they chose as their primary theme color. From the sparkling lighting to the delicate gold sparkle on their wedding cake, it all enhanced their Tuscany-inspired event and make it everything they envisioned!

Read on for more fun details about this memorable Portofino Bay Hotel wedding.

WHAT WE LOVED

The Just Marry! Team greatly enjoyed working with Alex and Eric on their Portofino wedding! Here’s what their Just Marry! wedding planner, Victoria, shared about their event:
  • Most emotional moment

    The couple’s first look. It was something Alex had anticipated from the moment she chose her wedding gown! They decided to have it on the Portofino’s grand spiral staircase and it turned out beautifully. It was such a sweet and tender moment between just the two of them!

  • A unique element I loved

    I loved the 4-foot “LOVE” light up letters they displayed in their reception space! Those light-up letters paired with the romantic candle sticks on each guest table made the room absolutely stunning.

  • Resort where the couple stayed while in Orlando

    Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

  • What the wedding party wore

    The bridesmaids wore Lulus dresses and jewelry. The groom and groomsmen wore Calvin Klein. The bride wore a Casablanca Couture gown from Casablanca Bridal paired with Kate Spade shoes.

  • The couple's choice of first dance song
