Celebrating with family was a top priority for Blake and Rochelle. But because their grandparents couldn’t travel, the couple decided to bring those Tulum vibes to their Orlando rooftop wedding. With the help of their planner, Bella Sposa Events, and their rockstar vendor team, they were able to pull off an unforgettable celebration, surrounded by their closest loved ones.
When the bride herself is the florist, you can expect a spectacular display of arrangements. With the open space of The Balcony as the perfect blank canvas, what better way to channel a modern boho wedding at the beach than with earthy tones, rattan details, disco balls, white florals, and dried exotic foliage?
The couple went the extra mile to ensure that their big day was a fun family affair by including the bride’s grandmother in the ceremony. As their guests looked on, Rochelle’s Mawmaw made her way down the aisle and stole the show as her flower girl—it was truly a heartwarming and adorable moment.
Between the coconut seating chart and sangria bar, down to the confetti cannon and sparkler fountain, they threw one seriously epic Tulum-inspired party, and everyone had an absolute blast. And thanks to Stephanie Velez, every moment was captured brilliantly.

The Bride’s Flower Granny Stole The Show
My “Mawmaw” means the world to us, and we actually had her in the wedding as a flower grandma. She lit up and still talks about how it was the best day of her life. I surprised her by playing our favorite song—“Dancing Queen” by Abba—that she and I used to dance to when she watched me as a child.

A Beach-Themed Coconut Seating Chart
I would have to say the seating chart created by Andi Mejia Designs was on the top of my list of favorite pieces. She put our custom design on every coconut, and Arthur’s Catering filled each coconut with the yummiest margaritas for our guests.
