Unique Idea For A Gender Reveal Wedding Reception

This couple from Orlando, Florida wanted to host a gender reveal wedding reception. Well actually it was during cocktail hour. But before we get to the reveal, we have to talk about this wedding. Because it is absolutely stunning.

The bride wanted a romantic, yet boho wedding. For this reason, her planner/designer, Vogue Affairs Wedding Planning & Décor, chose some specific items. For instance, lush florals in pinks, reds and white. In addition, gold chairs and soft champagne table linens. Further glass beads and tableware. Coupled with a fully draped ceiling and twinkle lights. Ending with floating candles and soft lighting to set the mood.

Admittedly we think the beachside venue of Paradise Cove Orlando was the perfect backdrop for this romantic wedding. With the soft movement of the water at the lake front ceremony. And an arch with soft white and pink draping. As well as the lush floral accents

Adding to the romance is the soft wood tones and moody lighting in the reception area. Including the beachside fire pit where the couple took a quiet moment alone.

Some Detail Shots Before The Gender Reveal

Without a doubt the photographer took full advantage of this gorgeous setting to grab some detail shots. For example, the wedding dress sparkling in the sun. And the adorable flower girl. Of course the bridesmaids and groomsmen weren’t left out either.

Before we get to the gender reveal shot, the love is in the details of this real wedding. The ring box nodded to their new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. Also with the words, ‘and the two become one’ inscribed on the top.  Followed by the bride’s shoes that read I DO on the soles.

Fun Gender Reveal wedding

Since the bride was pregnant, they decided to do a gender reveal wedding. As a result, the happy couple set off smoke bombs during the cocktail reception. Unquestionably, it’s a boy! Congratulations to the newly weds and soon to be parents.

The smoke wasn’t just during the gender reveal. As you can see, the couple had their first dance on a cloud of smoke as well.

Additionally, they had a quiet last dance under the moon and market lights before the grand exit to their new life as husband and wife.

Bride to Bride Advice

We asked the bride, “What do you wish you had known before you began wedding planning? Or what would you have done differently?”

Her response was, “Have a wedding planner from beginning to end.”
