How Sweet It Is...

We spent our Valentine' Day at a wonderful event that we love to be able to be apart of. The Pepin Heart Hospital held its annual fundraiser on Valentine's Day, and it was a sweet night of country lovin'.

This year's theme was Sweet Heart Rodeo. Guests were encouraged to put on their best western wear and head to this rodeo.

We are still so thankful for Jason Mize Photography for helping us out. We sent out a Tweet the day before Valentine's Day asking for a photographer to come take some photos of all the decor we had provided. Jason Mize came to our rescue. Thanks again for taking time out of your busy schedule AND especially since you had to come take these photos on the evening of Valentine's Day. Which iif you have not done so already, follow us on Twitter @MMDEvents.

If you know us, you know we love details and the we love when a photographer captures our work!

That's right boys and girls there was even a mechanical bull to ride! Unfortunately, none of the MMD Events staff rode the bull that evening :).

This wagon wheel filled with real flowers and ribbon hung high above the dance floor, or should we say where people were boot scootin' booging all night long!

Thanks again to the Pepin Heart Hospital for allowing us to be part of this special event. We are always happy to be involved with an excellent event like this one!

Bouquet of the Week!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! In the spirit of all things green today we moved our bouquet of the week till today! This green bouquet is filled with green and white hydrangea, mini cabbages, spider mums, kermit mums, hypericum berries, and ivory feathers. This wonderful bouquet made by Amanda is hand tied with off-white ribbon and a nice natural stem finish. This beautiful bouquet was used this past weekend at wedding at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa!

The bridesmaids bouquets were a smaller version of the brides bouquets filled with green hydrangea, spider mums, kermit mums, hypericum berries and peacock feathers. Congratulations again to Melinda and Daniel!!

We are off to set up for a St. Patty's Wedding! Keep checking back for more photos or better yet, follow us on Facebook or on Twitter @MMDEvents!

Kind Words from Clients!

We love when clients take the time to thank us for a job well done, but we love when the client tells us thanks before their big day has even arrived. Courtney and Rich are getting married April 15th and we cannot wait till this wedding.

During our past meetings Courtney expressed to us that she really wanted a trial bouquet and she would be using it for her bridal portraits. Naturally we said yes we could do that and at the time we had no idea how much of an impact this bouquet was going to make. Brides always get excited to see their bouquet for the first time on their big day, but image if you got to see your bouquet weeks before the wedding was even here. Thank you so much Courtney for these kind words to us!!

We are even more excited and thrilled for the wedding of Courtney and Rich!!

Lovegevity's Wedding Planning Institute Blog!

Our own Amanda Allen has been an instructor at St. Petersburg College for Lovegevity's Wedding Planning Institute for the past 2 semesters. This past weekend Amanda received a great mention in the LWPI's blog for the end of the year party. One point that Amanda really focused on with her students was networking. She believes that it is very important in this industry and stressed that a lot to her students. At the end of the semester, Amanda's class put together a networking party that vendors were invited to. This networking party was such a success. This is a great article about the power of networking and a great article centered on her classes party.

This is another great mention for Amanda and her passion for teaching this course!

Thank you again for all the vendors who attended the party and thank you for LWPI for this great blog post!

We love when we have couples who take the time out of their busy lives to remember us and give us a little thanks for helping make their special day a fabulous one! The other day we received a thank you card in the mail and it meant a lot to us, and wanted to share it with everyone.

We received a call from Alexis, the Social Catering Manager over at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, because she had gotten engaged and wanted us to be part of her special day. Naturally we said yes because not only do we love her, but we feel so honored when another industry professional chooses us to help with their wedding. She works with tons of industry professionals every weekend and we felt so honored that we made her list to share her special day with. She could have choose anyone, but she picked us. Every thank you card we receive from couples we love, and this one especially meant a lot to us here at MMD Events!
