Lara and Andy celebrated their love at the beautiful Cypress Grove Estate house with close family and friends. I have to say, the cutest little daughter of theirs made her way up to the ceremony stage during the vows, and it was the cutest moment! I loved her color palette, braided hair and beautiful accents of floral through out. Enjoy some of my personal favorites!
This french cottage inspired wedding down by the St.Johns river in Jacksonville was the most cutest! I adored all the garden blooms and flourish that was in every corner of my eye! One of my favorite weddings we did! Enjoy some green eye candy below! Happy Thursday friends, 2016 you are one awesome year so far!
Yesterday we were out to work by the sea for one rad editorial shoot and I took this baby with me, which I had too much fun designing. Little hint of the vibes for this wedding inspiration… Mermaid. Hi Ariel! I also got to style it and be the MODEL, seriously too much fun! Cannot wait to share the full images with my awesome friends of Best Photography and Seth Dunlap!
These two sweeties are saying “I do” this May and I cannot wait! We met up at their wedding location in beautiful Deland! I love their venue, the adorable Bridle Oaks Barn! Southern charm at it’s best, we know it’s going to be a beautiful day. Enjoy some of our favorites! Congrats you two lovebirds!
Today we delivered this beautiful bouquet and took it on a lovely trip to Bramble Tree Estate! These Spring inspired blooms warmed my little heart during today’s cold temps! Can’t wait to show you more sneak peeks!

Jenna and Sean had a beautiful ceremony/wedding by “the sea”. Nested right in the middle of the ocean and the Sandpearl Resort, the two lovebirds said “I do” upon the sunset. I just love the Clearwater area! I always have to remind myself to travel more within Florida, it’s only a small drive away to such gorgeous beaches and scenery! Weddings always take me to such new and exciting spots! Jenna and Sean were a glowing, sweet couple and what a lovely bridal party as well. See some of my favorites below from their big day, and congrats you two!
Our bride this past weekend wanted a bouquet in her words, “something that has the style of Rifle Paper Co. and Lilly Pulitzer mixed together“! Well, lucky me…I’m a huge fan of both and designed this colorful happy Fall bridal bouquet together, hand delivered with a smile on my face! Happy Tuesday friends!
Ooo-lala friends! Last night I had the amazing opportunity to model for celebrity makeup artist Stephen Moleski at the fabulous Marilyn Monroe Spas! He even told me I had the “perfect brows”!! Ah! Contouring genius. A featured artist on multiple top-rated shows! Moleski’s clientele base is as varied and vast as his credits – America’s Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars, Xfactor, American Idol, The Kardashians, E!, Vanity Fair, People, etc! Stephen was in Orlando teaching top new trends + styles for attendees! Read more below and some beauty tips he shared with me!
I have a lot of hair but it’s very fine. If I wash my hair and blow it out, it’s usually pretty flat and not much volume. I had my hair styled by the lovely Davina, who is a Pureology stylist and ambassador. I asked Davina, what could I do to add more “bam” to my hair ( since I’m terrible with styling ). Davina introduced me to Pureology’s “Strengthening Control“, and to give your hair time to “set”. Grab the strengthening spray and apply on the first 2 to 3 inches of your root, then go through and blow dry it for body and hold…plus volume! She then curled my hair lightly to place in pins to set my hair before makeup. My hair is very thin, so it almost always needs product to manipulate it! Get this spray, it’s amazing and smells delicious.
I was SO excited to get my face dolled up by the amazingly talented Stephen Moleski. 90% of the product used were all from Marilyn Monroe Spas. From the eye shadow colors to the foundation. I had no idea what “look” I was going to get so let’s just say I was totally impressed by the end! Makeup is magic, it transforms your best features and just makes them completely pop! Stephen shared some amazing makeup tips with me to share, keep reading below!
These products above I used before I arrived to model, the Rose Hip firming de-puff eye cream which works wonders, Citrus Lime refreshing hand cream and a subtle yet perfect amount of color for your lips, luxury lip gloss “Party Girl“.
Stephen gave me his signature smokey eye look. I shared with him how I always want my eye to look bigger since they aren’t too big and almond shaped. His contouring and highlight tutorial was amazing to watch. He wanted to make sure attendees knew the difference between correct contouring and highlight without looking too “show girl”. MAGIC, above is my final look before hair. Wow! I felt flawless.
Tip #1: When beginning your makeup and foundation, let your makeup “marinate”. Makeup is made to stick to your skin, let it settle for a few minutes before rushing through it so fast.
Tip #2: Faux Lashes: Stephen is the creator of the amazing Smoke and Mirrors lashes and shared that if “you look like you’re wearing lashes then you’re putting them on wrong”. Lashes need to look natural, as if you weren’t wearing any at all. If someone can say “oh that girl is wearing fake lashes”, nope – bad”!
Tip #3: Rose Water sprayed lightly on the face before and after, calms and sets your makeup. It has essential oils, and is great for clients as well. Relieves stress!
Tip #4: Leave small airy spaces in your brow when filling them out, it looks more natural and not so completely drawn out, you want the natural look that brows have not the “youtube brows”.
Davina worked her styling magic and created the popular “Fobob” on me. Guests said I looked like a Bond girl or the retro Adele look! I went from long hair to short within minutes, without cutting it. It’s amazing to see how the right makeup and hair can completely change your look. I had such a fun time meeting everyone and getting glam from the talented celebrity stylists, thank you again! Lastly, in case I haven’t told you yet you can receive a 10% discount on all products and services at any of the Marilyn Monroe Spas locations and online. There are a few ways to redeem the discount, tell them Andi sent you!:
What a fun week it has been! At the end of year I starting wrapping up my last weddings for 2015, getting some time to recharge and work on how I can enhance, update and think of new fun business plans for 2016! I cannot believe how fast 2015 just flew by! This past Monday I had the wonderful opportunity to style Cultivate Retreats luncheon at the historic hotel Le Meridien located right downtown Tampa. I enjoyed designing the floral and our chalk board for the ladies. Pink and navy filled the room with happy blooms and smiley faces. While I was in Tampa I had one spot that was on my mind to visit. The incredible and beautiful Oxford Exchange, friends…I’m in love! Continue reading below!
I loved designing these 3 pretty in pink bouquets filled with Austin Roses, Eucalyptus, soft pink roses with some touches of hydrangeas.
Doesn’t anything in watercolor just look fabulous? I hand-painted and designed the Menu’s for the luncheon. Give me a project to get excited about, and this was one of them!
Check out our board below! I wanted a European feel, with foliage and I think our chalk board designer Sebastian knocked it out of the park! Please be sure to check out our rentals page to see more samples, get your order in for a custom board! Make an impression with these unique details!
Le Meridien Hotel in Tampa had a fabulous ambiance. Located right in the middle of downtown Tampa, this once a federal courthouse, mixes contemporary culture with its European heritage. The hotel has been transformed to reveal a boutique hotel boasting 130-inspiring guest rooms and suites, meeting and event space, a French Bistro and Longitude Bar. Customer service was on point with an available shuttle that drove me and my guest to any local attractions nearby!
Let’s talk about the Oxford Exchange!! As I walked in, I was already hypnotized by the beautiful architecture, pattern floors, books and coffee shop AH! I enjoyed a lovely lunch at the restaurant inside where I inhaled a delicious plate of FRIED brussels sprouts…pretty much heaven. Moving along, had an cafe latte at Buddy Brew Coffee as I sat in my retro round chair sippin’ and chattin’. If you haven’t visited this unique venue/marketplace please do, you won’t regret it. You can easily spend a whole day just grabbing lunch, a cup of joe, doing some shopping and work on your laptop! Service was amazing as well!
