Spring wedding of Lynn & Matt

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:17 am by JBEvents

The Spring wedding of Lynn & Matt took place at The Pavilion at Lake Rabun.  Lynn and her Maid of Honor created the design concept for the wedding and had many DIY touches throughout.  Securing professional vendors for the major components of the wedding made for a very successful melding of DIY and professionally prepared products. 

Since this was basically a “destination” wedding, guests were able to enjoy the weekend in the beautiful surroundings of Lake Rabun.

The couple selected their own Ceremony and Cocktail Hour music and played it via iPod.  However, for the dinner and dancing, Men in Blues provided the entertainment and kept the crowd on the dance floor.

The wedding cake was provided by Highland Bakery

Florals were provided by Mark Fitchpatrick. 

Thank you to the JBEvents Team – led by Allison who was pulling double duty as both coordinator and guest. 

Enjoy these images as we wish Lynn and Matt a lifetime of happiness!!!!

Honeymoon in Hawaii

Posted in Other Events, Planning Tips and Information, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:46 pm by JBEvents

This post is different from previous posts because it focuses on the Honeymoon.  After the months and months of planning the wedding and all of the stress that comes with it, taking a relaxing honeymoon trip is the perfect way to start your new life together and recharge. 

We assist our clients in many ways – and one such way is providing a preferred vendor list that contains every category of vendor that could be needed to plan a special event – even including Travel Agents – who will gladly assist our clients with the plans for their dream honeymoon.

Today’s blog on Hawaii is from one of our Travel Agents, June Cuba, of All Honeymoons.  June is a Certified Hawaii Expert – and can provide you with all of the information on the best places in Hawaii and beyond.  I’m sure after reading the information you will be ready to pack your bags and head to Hawaii — but if you have another destination in mind, June can assist you with that as well.

One of the toughest wedding planning decisions of a newly engaged couple is to decide on their honeymoon destination. The honeymoon is a couple’s first adventure together. It should be romantic and offer something for both the bride and the groom. One of the hottest vacation destinations couples choose is the Hawaiian Islands.

Kauai

 

Where to Stay:
Kauai has several options for accommodations as well, everything from the ultra luxury spa resorts to the budget condos. There is a wide range of accommodations and options for every budget. With an average Hawaiian vacation destination costing between $3,500 and $5,000 for 7 days, Hawaii can be very affordable.

Waimea Plantation, a one-of-a-kind oceanfront resort with historic plantation cottages amidst a Coconut grove, is reminiscent of the way Hawaii used to be.

Each historic cottage is fully restored with modern amenities and conveniences including a kitchen. The staff at the Plantation is friendly and very helpful and wants to make sure your honeymoon on the island as well as their resort is remarkable. The plantation is very secluded on the western side of the island near Waimea Canyon and the Napali coast. You can catch a boat near the resort to explore the Napali coast which is viewed only by boat, helicopter or by foot. This is an adventure that should not be missed. This award winning resort is perfect for the lower budget honeymoon.

Koa Kea is an oceanfront luxury boutique hotel in Poipu which is known for its beaches. The service is exceptional and the staff just seems to know what you need and want before you do. The food, the spa and the staff makes this a perfect place to unwind after a hectic wedding. The hotel is close to activities and sightseeing for the rest of the island. One of the activities to check out: the ATV tour at the Kipu Ranch. At the end you can swim at the base of a waterfall.

What to see on your honeymoon:
Hawaii, in short, is paradise on earth. Each of the islands, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii, Molokai and Lanai has its own unique personality. Kauai is remarkable for its spectacular and widely varied landscape from Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” to the Napali Coast, with cliffs rising 2,700 feet and more than 40 white sand beaches. Within Kauai’s 533 square miles, there are distinct micro-climates including coastal sand dunes, desert-like plateaus, verdant river valleys, foothills and mist-shrouded mountain tops.

The options are endless and you can experience the “aloha spirit” on your special Hawaiian honeymoon destination.

We hope you enjoyed this post on a potential honeymoon destination!  For all of your planning needs, contact us first and we will lead you to the best vendors who will work within your budget to create the wedding of your dreams and the honeymoon of a lifetime!
