Jennifer & Brooks Sarasota/Manatee County Wedding!

One very important attribute when planning a wedding is flexibility.  Jennifer certainly had to exercise her flexibility while planning her wedding.

The original venue selected contacted her a few months before the wedding to inform Jennifer that they would no longer be hosting weddings, so she had to select a new venue.  Once the new venue was selected, it was then time to revise the decor theme.  She wanted the theme to be vintage, so she set out visiting antique stores and thrift shops in search of all kinds of lace doily’s.   These looked so pretty on top of the purple table cloths.  She also found purple mason jars which were filled with Baby’s Breath creating a soft and elegant look.  Candles were scattered about to create a romantic glow. We adorned the Sweet Heart table with a large lace overlay and glass cylinder vases trimmed with a vintage styled lace cuff to hold the brides bouquet as well as more candles.

Another thing that Jennifer had to be flexible about was the site for the ceremony.  As I tell all of my clients who plan for an outdoor ceremony (or reception), you have to be flexible and understand that should weather be inclimate, Plan B will have to be put in motion.  That is exactly what happened in this case.  A huge storm developed {typical in Florida} just as guests were arriving and so we had to very quickly move all of the chairs and some of the decor inside the screened lanai.  If you look at the ceremony photos closely, you can see if was raining heavily complete with thunder and lightening all throughout the ceremony.  After the ceremony was over, we didn’t let the rain stop us from getting some adorable photos.  I especially love the ones with the umbrella.

 

It was such an honor planning and producing Jennifer and Brooks wedding.  We wish them a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
