For the past week we have been watching the forecast for hurricane Joaquin. Luckily, we were far enough away that we didn't have severe weather, but the rain just wouldn't subside. However, Let's Celebrate is determined to deliver excellent service rain or shine. In preparation, we strapped on our boots and wore our rain jackets as we decorated the tent for Jennifer and Drew's wedding at Avondale Estates this past weekend. Jennifer wanted a rustic chic wedding using many turquoise bud vases along with wood slices, lanterns, and candlelight. Jennifer wanted each of our guests in the bridal party to hold a single stem of a flower that would be gathered and made into a bouquet at the end of the aisle. We stuck to a white, lime green and turquoise color palette for all the floral decor. All the groomsmen wore succulent boutonnieres with accents of wild flowers and bound together using twine. Turquoise mason jars filled with whimsical wildflowers hung off the side of end chairs to line the aisle during the ceremony and were able to be repurposed on the highboys during the cocktail hour.
Lastly, we want to share a note the mother of the bride wrote to us after the event:
"My daughter’s wedding last weekend was supposed to be outside by a lake, with dinner in a tent. Instead, Hurricane Joaquin arrived, and with it, the plans for the outdoor wedding were scrapped. We shifted plans to have the ceremony in the tent, then flip it for the dinner. Denise and her staff were incredible! They worked efficiently and professionally and, in record time, created the beautiful tablescapes (a gazillion bud vases, lanterns, candles) that were my daughter’s dream. It would have been hard enough to flip the tent with a single centerpiece, but the layered and lovely décor took lots of time and they made it look beautiful, while standing in soggy grass and blowing rain. Denise and Milena were a joy to work with, understood and perfectly executed all of the many details, were responsive and very reasonable. We couldn’t be happier with everything they did!!!" - Donna R.
