No Pixie Dust Needed

Kristin and Allen's Wedding Day didn't need Tinkerbell's spell to make it magical. They had their own brand of individuality and
uniqueness to make it truly special.

While both met as employees of Walt Disney World, their vision for their wedding day encompassed the many facets of their personal lives which ranged from childhood whims to family memories, and recent attendances at other celebrations.

Thus, the modern wedding - a practical reflection of the bride and groom's life experiences. From the vibrant guest table centerpieces that represented Kristin's memories of her late grandfather's yard full of foliage, to Allen's wishes for a waterfront location, their wedding day reflected much of what they were as individuals and a couple.
Hospitality was on their mind. Cigars for enjoyment and a photo booth to share special visual moments, the couple was determined for everyone in attendance to have a memorable time.
Many kudos to our treasured vendors who contributed to this special day:
Elizabeth Atkins of Elle Creative Photography
DeLite Entertainment
Carmen's Flowers
A1 Foliage
Jazzy Jewels Make Up and Hair
Our own Ashley Allred, event designer for the reception.

Holiday Cheer

Catering By Robert / Event Concepts . FL brought holiday cheer to staffers at Arbitration Forums earlier this month in the Magnolia Ballroom at the India Conference Center. HR's Emilie Perez always wants to make a dramatic statement for the annual end-of-the year party and this year was no different.

From a gourmet Popcorn Bar hosted by our favorite "Elf" Rita, to a Hollywood Red Carpet welcome by two famous celebrity look-alikes, the everyone in attendance had lots to experience.

Eladio of DeLite Entertainment provided the meet and greet along with a cigar rollers and a well rounded repertoire of music for the event.

We designed a menu around some of Hollywood's most famous restaurants including a traditional Cobb Salad from the Brown Derby. The meal was capped off with a flamboyent Bananas Foster station.

With a color scheme of black, white, platinum and a touch of silver, guest tables glowed with warm candle and LED lighting. We utilized three different styles of centerpieces from our inventory. Event designer, Bradley Dempsey, gave his "thumbs up" to a well put together event.

Cool Blue DIY

Tia and Juan's Oct. 16th reception included lots of DIY elements in a combination of turquoise and several shades of lighter blue. From the small favor boxes to the thank you card tents, the personalized features Tia and her sister, Jacky, definitely had a subtle impact on the look of the guest tables.

After of the past eight years of weening myself away from stark white table linens, I knew it was the right backdrop for their reception the Treasure Island Community Center. When we had our first meeting in February, the girls and I had a frank discussion on the use of turquioise and the bright orange they wanted to incorporate into their flowers.

We looked at several past events where those colors together reminded everyone of the classic Howard Johnson's motif. It was decided that the reception flowers would compliment the blue hue in fresh hydrangia provided by wedding florist, Carmen's Flowers. Our 10" and 7" clear glass cylinders were utilized along with submersible LED lights and alternating petals and blue gel fill.

This look was especially striking on the long dual six-foot table sections (the only table option at the center). Chair ties and napkins were in turquoise. We also installed white, Robin Egg Blue and turquoise Chinese lanterns over the dance floor which what in the center of the long table configuration.

Another personal touch were butterflies with each guest's name pearched on the edge of their water glass.

Sailing Through Clearwater Beach with Amanda & Paul

Perfectly breezy skies welcomed the couple's wedding day (May 15th) at Sand Key. With the simple wedding on the beach at the park across the street, Amanda, Paul, and their 100 guests enjoyed an indoor/outdoor reception on the second floor of the Clearwater Community Sailing Center.

The social hour, buffet, bar, and the dancing area was held on the newly constructed veranda. Besides a magnificent view, it features ceiling fans and roll up clear plastic liners to cut back on the wind. The main dinner and cake cutting was hosted inside the small dining area.

Elements of their seaside theme were found in centerpieces, table top decor, and cake.
