Jake's Comedy Club Bar Mitzvah

This past week we had the honor of being apart of the Markman Bar Mitzvah held at the Palma Ceia Country Club. As soon as we received these photos we had to blog them! A big thank you to Tampa's Bar Mitzvah Photographer Booray Perry for the wonderful photos. This amazing evening was planned by Monica Varner with Elan Event Studio. For the evening the room was transformed into "Jake's Comedy Club."

The tables were accented with white lampshades with vases filled with white cymbidium orchids and a lamp base of hydrangea and other green and white hydrangea, mini calla lilies, and orchid's. Each table was named after one of Jake's favorite stand-up comedians.

No VIP space is complete without its own Step and Repeat to welcome guest into the comedy club.
The blue uplighting gave the guest the true feeling that they were in a comedy club. To top the night off Jake entered the room and performed his very own stand-up performance that was truly something that no one will forget.

Once again a big thank you to everyone who made this night a success:

Bouquet of the Week

Wondering if yellow and navy blues are the right colors for your wedding...well look no further! This weeks bouquet uses the right amount of navy blue accents to compliment the yellow flowers. The brides bouquet used a variety of navy blue peppers, soft lamb ears, yellow mini calla lillies, mimosa and yellow tulips all hand tied in navy blue satin ribbon. The bridesmaids bouquets were solid yellow roses tied together for a tight round vibrant look against the bridesmaids blue dresses.

We know this is the bouquet of the week but we had to share the photos of the flowers on the the escort card table and the centerpieces on the head table. Guest could find their place cards next to the manzanita tree covered in hanging votives in a base of wheat grass. The yellow flowers accented the base of the stand.

The centerpices on the head table were once again curving manzanita trees with flowers hanging off of it. The base of the manzanita was covered in growing flower beds of tulips and daffodils. These centerpieces had everyone talking! Our head floral designer Amanda out did herself yet again.

Thank you to Limelight Photography for the wonderful photos!!

Bouquet of the Week

This week's bouquet is for anyone who loves different shades of purples, peacock feathers, and a fierce bouquet. Once again these amazing bouquets were made by our lead floral designer Amanda.

The bridesmaids bouquets included dark purple mini calla lilies and purple lisianthus all accented with fiddle fern and peacock feather blades. To keep with the peacock theme, the stems were wrapped in a peacock fabric with a peacock feather applique at the bottom.

The brides bouquet was also something that we had to share! This bouquet was over 20 inches across! This massive bouquet included Picasso mini calla lilies, dark purple mini calla lilies, purple lisianthus, deep purple hydrangea (all the way from California), and all wrapped in the peacock fabric and multiple peacock feather appliques at the bottom.

Kate Spade Inspiration Photo Shoot

We are so excited to share our latest Kate Spade Inspiration Photo Shoot with Tina Bass Photography, which was featured on Wedding Chicks and Every Last Detail!

Inspired by our local Kate Spade store, our goal with this shoot was to show brides that they can use bright colors and bold patterns and still be chic and modern. Placed with unique plates, the simple, chic menus created by Emily Ley Paper were the starting element. A simplistic colored border and matching font coordinated with the color of the napkins and the “place books”. Place cards created by Emily were made to look like “titles” for miniature books, doubling as favors at each place setting. Various found objects and a unique table number created by Every Last Detail added to the eclectic feel for the table.

A gorgeous centerpiece in shades of pink garden roses was placed on top of fashion magazines, standing out against the backdrop of a chic black lamp. A champagne and gold overlay was draped over a kelly green satin linen, all provided by Connie Duglin Linen. Gold chivari chairs from Signature Event Rentals were adorned by custom chivari chair toppers created by Simply & Forever Boutique, adding the perfect amount of style and sophistication. Combined with a custom bench cover made of a black and white floral print, the black and white seating completed the whole table.

Our stunning model wore a gorgeous gown provided by White Closet Co. and was all dolled up by Hope Henderson Artistry and Hair By Monique. She was accessorized with Stella & Dot jewelry, Bethany Lorelle hairpieces, and an adorably chic clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. These bright colors and bold patterns are perfect for a stylish bride wanting a wedding that is a little different, yet still incredibly chic. And of course the details are what complete this whole eclectic chic look!

Jasmine & Don's Ritz Carlton Wedding

We had the pleasure of working with Jasmine and Don to create their Persian themed wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota. And of course we loved working with their planner, Jamie ofConfetti Events, too! Jasmine and Don had a traditional Persian ceremony, complete with an amazing table full of different foods. They chose the bold colors of red and turquoise to reflect the bride's Persian heritage. Aaron Lockwood was kind enough to send us photos of their exquisite April wedding for us to share!

Just look at that lighting- it totally makes the whole wedding! Congratulations Jasmine and Don, and thank you for trusting us with your wedding!
