This American Couple’s Love For Disney Turned Into A Mesmerizing Fairytale Floral Wonderland Wedding

“A tale as old as time.” 

Step into Joanne and Daryll’s floral wonderland that will mesmerize you with every picture! Their love story began in 8th grade at Holy Trinity School where they both went in their childhood. Following their respective callings, they went separate ways in high school and college. But fate had different plans. They reunited during their adulthood on Facebook and the rest was history.

They both love everything Disney and flowers. In fact, the whole idea was to transform the five-star beach resort into a dreamy enchanted garden, which was wonderfully achieved by Dee Lee of Dee Lee Designs. There were hidden Mickeys and Minnies everywhere. Nisie Enchanted Florist created a stunning floral ceiling installation with lush florals, bringing the bride Joanne to tears. Traveling from North Carolina, they tied the knot on October 1, 2022, at Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach in Dana Point.

Joanne and Daryll’s vision of a floral wonderland wedding began with an aisle completely lined with lush flowers all the way to the altar and backdrop. A pastel ombré color scheme ruled the day and made for a seriously Instagram-worthy design statement. The mirror aisle created a stunning pathway alongside ghost chairs where guests were seated as the couple said their vows surrounded by family and friends, as well as TONS of gorgeous blooms!

As the evening proceeded, the details got finer. Candles, champagne tower, dessert station, and a signage box were few things that captured everyone’s attention at once. The reception room was adorned with heavy blooms that made everyone feel like they were in a dream. We love the personalization of the dance floor as the couple carved their initials and wedding date on it. And for all the sugar addicts out there, you have to check out the cake by Mr. & Mrs. Creamery that had sugar blooms and their initials on it. It was a total work of art!

Full of bright colors, the chicness and elegance of this wedding were extravagant and classy at the same time. Dee Lee Designs captured the couple’s vision precisely and helped them make their vision a reality!
