TWO FOR THE GARDEN - Part Two

Catering By Robert's second spring wedding celebration at Ybor State Museum showcased the personal style of couple Lindsey and J.J. With the help of family and friends, they were able to incorporate many fabulous and fun elements such as fresh flowers in our standard centerpiece containers, an entry arbor, Chinese lanterns in their dining area tent, and lots of extra hands during set-up and breakdown.

Much of the savings from DIY projects was put toward activities to keep wedding guests entertained during their hour long photo-shoot in and around Ybor City. These included a photo booth, cigar roller, specialty martini from an ice luge, and a romantic mood set by a Spanish guitarist.

A black, turquoise/teal, and platinum color scheme pulled in elements of an overall peacock theme for the reception held all outdoors at the Ybor State Museum. Lindsey, J. J. and their families did a lot of indepth research prior to their wedding including any conflicts with other Ybor special events on their wedding day. They also found out about another wedding being held the day after theirs and agreed to share in the costs of renting a large tent for both events. Not only did this offer cover in case of rain, it gave guests a nice, cool shady dining experience.

The couple chose our Dubloon Package with Latin emphasis of traditional black beans, yellow rice, and pulled Mojo pork coupled with some mainstream standards such as corn, creamy pasta, and southwest chicken.

Lindsey and J.J. were huge fans of personalized, practical favors for their guests. This ranged from place cards attached to imprinted match books (very appropirate with the breezy conditions) to  custom water bottles and beer coozies promimentaly displayed in colorful buckets near the bar.

Guests could not stop chatting about the excitement of the evening especially when the true party atmosphere got underway post-dinner via dj Rob Sword of Sword Sounds. We're happy to share some pictures we captured of Lindsey and J.J.'s very personalized wedding reception.
