Ivan and Brenda chose The Acre in Orlando for their beautiful ceremony and reception. Located just minutes away from I4 in the heart of the Edgewater neighborhood of Orlando, The Acre is an eclectic gathering of building and spaces that transport you our of the hustle and bustle of city life, into a more calm oasis in the heart of the city.

Flowers by Lesley crafted the beautiful arrangements for each of the tables as well as the beautiful bouquet Brenda carried down the aisle, Ivan’s boutonniere and all the flowers for their attendants.
Black Bean Deli provided the incredibly delicious Cuban themed food for the evening.
George Street Photo captured every moment of the couple’s amazing day. From their getting ready pictures to photos with the Rolls Royce, from the ceremony through the reception; they got it all.
Rev.Glynn Ferguson with the Orlando Team of Sensational Ceremonies worked with Ivan and Brenda to create custom ceremony. Full of love and laughter, the ceremony brought both smiles and tears to their faces and those of their guests. The couple chose “The Art of Marriage” for a special reading during their ceremony.
ART OF MARRIAGE
The little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through all the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have wings of an angel. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for the things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.
Congratulations Ivan and Brenda! We wish you a happily ever after for a lifetime.
