Sanders Beach Virtual Wedding Tour // Pensacola Day of Coordinator

Sanders Beach Virtual Wedding Tour

If you’re dreaming of having a big wedding, Sanders Beach is the place for you! Here are some of the perks- it’s reasonably priced, has the view of the water and an area for the ceremony. It can accommodate at least 200 people and has a stage area for a DJ or large band. Tables, chairs and kitchen area are included. For an additional cost you can get their bridal room. This venue is pretty popular and weekend dates fill up fast. So, if you’re thinking of having this venue as a place for your upcoming wedding, be sure to contact them quickly. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in hiring a Day of Coordinator for your special event. If you’re a destination or DIY bride, be sure to check out our collection in the FDL boutique for virtual planning packages and planning downloads.

This venue was an excellent bang for our buck. For one fee, you can use the beautiful lawn on the water for the ceremony and the awesome glassed in banquet room for the reception. The staff is incredibly helpful and very easy to work with. This venue books up quickly so I would definitely recommend getting in there quickly. It was a perfect place for our special day!

We had the wedding outside overlooking the water and the reception inside the ball room. The personnel at Sanders Beach was over the top. They went above and beyond to help us. Everytime we made a request, they were very helpful. Not only is the venue great, but the view is to die for.

We choose this venue because of the views, ample parking, and size. It did not disappoint. We got several comments on the beauty of the location. Everything went perfectly.

Recently had our wedding here and it turned out beautiful and the staff was very helpful. Lots of space for a reasonable price.

Summer Al Fresco Dining // Pensacola Day Of Wedding Planner

Summer Al Fresco Dining

Sometimes simple is its own elegance. This tablescape was created and designed for an al fresco summer evening experience. I love easy entertaining, especially in the summertime. By combining  formal and casual elements to your tablescape you can create a chic but informal atmosphere. The table runner was a unique piece, a Toile print, and might be considered a bit formal but when it’s paired with the fruit and vibrant centerpiece it relaxes the table setting quite a bit.  The persimmons you see on the plates were a spontaneous design and inspired by a nearby tree. The floral centerpiece was designed by Leelee’s Sassy Blooms.  I just love how she used bright colored flowers inside a rustic wooden container. Will you be dining al fresco this summer? Wondering how to do it? It’s pretty easy, just follow these steps:

• Pick an outdoor location for dining
• Have an appropriate table and chairs (no need to bring the dining room table outside)
• Simply decorate
• Choose food goes well with your outside setting
• Remember the insect deterrent!

Just keep these things in mind the next time you’re planning an outdoor dinner party and you’ll surely wow your guests! This tablescape with featured on DIY Weddding Magazine.

Laura and Andrew // Eden Gardens Wedding // Pensacola Day of Coordinator

Destin Beach House Wedding, , Eden Gardens Wedding, Fleur de Lis Event Consulting, Pensacola Day Of wedding planner, David’s Bridal Gown, Brothers in Art Photography, Vintage Wedding, wedding doughnut flambe station, signature smoking cocktail, wedding Food trucks, poolside reception

Laura and Andrew’s Eden Gardens wedding is a must see! So many handmade details and creative touches will have your fingers twitching for a DIY project. I’m totally soaking up every inch of this beautiful ceremony and creative reception. Beautiful photography by Brothers in Art.

Details that I absolutely loved about this wedding:
Her DIY fresh and faux flower over hang
The signature smoking cocktail
The doughnut flambé station
Food trucks
The poolside reception
Charming ceremony site
And oh so much more…

Laura and Andrew’s wedding was one of intimacy- with a total guest count of 30. When you have a wedding like this one, it only made sense to rent a beach house and have the reception there. After the gorgeous ceremony at Eden Gardens (the landscape is all the decorating that you need), guests were welcomed to a poolside reception decorated in vintage furnishings. At the top of a beautiful draped entryway Laura’s DIY fresh and faux flower creation hung downwards to greet their guests. As guests entered the reception area they were also met with a signature “smoking” cocktail. Delicious food was a must for this couple and one might be surprised that it was all created by food trucks  and a doughnut flambe station for dessert.

Wedding Planning Tip
Use Google Drive

Laura was one of the most organized brides I have ever had the privilege of working with! Although it’s called Day of Coordinating, my package starts 30 days out and so there’s lots of communicating.  She organized everything through Google Drive and when we had our weekly meeting we would go over the “shared” documents together. One really nice feature about Google Drive is that if Laura made any kind of changes to her Docs I was able to see it right away. Google Drive is a great sharing tool and should be used in your wedding planning.

Tennessee Lagniappe Virtual Wedding Tour // Pensacola Day of Coordinator

Tennessee Laniappe Virtual Wedding Tour

The Tennessee Lagniappe is one cute vacation rental located in Rosemary Beach, Florida. However, it’s a tad bit smaller then the online pictures lead you to believe. I have a destination client getting married here and so I sent her this video. Although I love this house for a reception area, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. For one it must be used for a smaller sized wedding, 40 people max. There’s no way you’ll fit even a single 60” round at this site. I’m thinking 48” rounds that can fit 6 people at each table. You’ll have to get a little creative when it comes to a dance floor, cake table, bar and buffet tables. But it sure is a cute place for an intimate setting. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in hiring a Day of Coordinator for your special event. If you’re a destination or DIY bride, be sure to check out our collection in the FDL boutique for virtual planning packages and planning downloads.

We have just returned from a lovely getaway in Rosemary Beach. We stayed in the Carriage House. The management company was extremely helpful. We would recommend them to anyone wanting to visit Rosemary. The unit was clean and inviting. We cooked every meal for three days in the well equipped kitchen. The location was steps away from the beach and the tennis courts. The staff at the courts are friendly and helpful. The courts are well maintained. The cottage is small and not appropriate for more than 3 people. We love La Crema in Rosemary. We particularly like to go there for desert but everything on the menu is delightful. There is a grocery store about 10 minutes away but you could walk to dining for every meal if you prefer. We sometimes visit the donut truck in Alys beach for a treat. They offer the best doughnuts we have ever had. We found our entire stay delightful.

Neo-Vintage Industrial Styled Shoot // Pensacola Day Of Coordinator

white and green bouquet, Light bulb décor, Clear chiavari chairs, Candlelit stairwell Handmade invitation suite, Mirabel Photography, Neo-Vintage Industrial Wedding, Fleur de Lis Event Consulting, Palafox House, Vintage wedding, warehouse wedding, bronze and green wedding

This neo-vintage industrial styled shoot will leave you with a ton of bright ideas, so settle in and get ready for some serious pretty! This shoot was all captured by Mirabel Photography.

Design Concept: Neo-Vintage Industrial Shoot “You Light Up My Life”

Color Palette: Brass, Green, Cream

Featured On: Ruffled

Details that I absolutely loved about this styled shoot:
The lush white and green bouquet
Light bulb decor
Clear chiavari chairs
Candlelit stairwell
Handmade invitation suite
And oh so much more…

Have you ever fallen for someone so deeply just the thought of them lights you up? This unbelievable feeling was the inspiration behind this styled editorial shoot: You Light Up My Life. Throughout this neo-vintage industrial shoot various types of light bulbs make a notable appearance. The “light of my life” cake topper was constructed from different watt light bulbs and a calligrapher’s talented hand. The decanter stoppers, martini sticks and even the light bulb place cards all fall in line with the theme. A color palette of creamy whites with bronze accents made the perfect combination for this elegant modern yet retro design. As we have all learned from fashion- trends always resurface, but often take on a whole new look. You can see this twist in the acrylic Chiavari chairs, lace bridal gown with sleeves, the modern decanters and custom handwritten invitations. Look at the lush tablescape and candle filled stairwell; every detail of this shoot shines bright!

Design Tip
Put a twist on something old and make it new

This neo-vintage industrial shoot uses a lot of vintage undertones but with some modern twists. If you Google neo-vintage you’ll see some great examples of updated vintage. Take a look at the acrylic Chiavari chairs, the modern decanters and custom handwritten invitations in our design for more examples. So, when you’re thinking of styling a wedding or shoot don’t be afraid to mix different eras or old and new.

Museum of Commerce Virtual Wedding Venue Tour // Pensacola Day Of Coordinator

Museum of Commerce Virtual Wedding Venue Tour

This is a great venue if you’re looking for tons of space and a fun atmosphere. It  reminds me of New Orleans- with out the smelly streets. The museum is a recreation of a 1900’s downtown Pensacola streetscape. If you’re thinking of having a larger wedding, this venue will most likely accommodate your size. It has a kitchen for catering and space for a bar. The back half, near the printing press area, has enough plug ins for almost any band. Inside the Museum of Commerce your guests may enjoy a leisurely stroll past recreated storefronts that once existed on Palafox Street over one hundred years ago. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in hiring a Day of Coordinator for your special event. If you’re a destination or DIY bride, be sure to check out our collection in the FDL boutique for virtual planning packages and planning downloads.

We had out reception at the museum of commerce on march 24th 2012. It was wonderful the atmosphere is great and fit our personality I would definitely recommend this venue

I absolutely love the museum and so did all of our guests. I can’t tell you how many people have come up to us and said how cool they thought it was. You have to spend $1000 for the venue, but I think it paid off in savings on decor. Because the museum is so well done we did much less decor than other weddings we’ve been to. We only used simple centerpieces and some decorative table runners. Because it is part of the Historical District, there are some guidelines you have to follow but when you think about it, the trade off for a beautiful venue is worth it.

 

Whale of a Time 1st Birthday // Pensacola Event Planner

1st Birthday Inspiration, Aqua and Orange Party, Aqua cupcakes, Mirabel Photography, Orange cupcakes, Pensacola Event Planner, Table Designs, Virtual Wedding Planner, Whale of a Time 1st Birthday, Whale Theme, Fleur de Lis Event Consulting Last month we celebrated my son’s 1st birthday. Get ready for a large dose of bright colors, dashing whales, and my little dapper gentleman!

Design Concept: Whale of a Time

Color Palette: Navy, Orange, Aqua and White

Featured On: The Desiree Hartsock Blog

Details that I absolutely loved about this Event:
Baby R’s adorable outfit
Aqua table runner with the orange flowers
Whale cupcake toppers
Whale Signage
Whale of a Tale favors
And oh so much more…

This Whale of a Time 1st Birthday was cause for celebration. The lively color palette of navy, aqua and orange created one unforgettable event. As guests arrived they were greeted by a balloon arrangement and a sign on the door that read, “Whale hello there” which set the theme and tone of the party. Inside the design continued with an array of nautical elements and dashing whales. The custom aqua striped runners were handmade and when paired with the orange and white flowers it gave the tablescape a pop of fun. The dessert buffet backdrop was created from a white frame and paper streamers- super easy and affordable! Fun whale sayings like “Love You Tons” and “I Whalley Like You” were placed about. A picture collage of baby R hung from a multitude of navy, aqua, white and orange ribbons. Guest favors included cookies for the adults and books for the kids. R’s is just too dapper for words with his matching birthday attire!

Event Tip:
Hire a planner

I know what you’re thinking- “Isn’t she a planner?” Yes, Yes I am. However, I found it very challenging to run my own event and be a part of it- which is pretty funny because that is what I tell my clients. I would consider myself a pretty organized person and planned all the details to the T. But like all events, things have a tendency to evolve and change. And it would have been nice just to sit back and enjoy the party without worrying about flow or food.  So, words to the wise- hire a planner, even if you’re a planner, lol.
