This past weekend Jen and I were able to be part of Megan's and Tony's beautiful wedding in Ormond Beach. Megan and Tony, along with their families, were such a blessing to work with. The ceremony was incredible and the reception couldn't of been more fun! Here is a fabulous thank you note we received from Megan's mom today:

Dear Jenna and Jen,

I cannot express the appropriate words that show the gratitude for the hard work and dedication that you expressed throughout the planning and Tony & Megan’s wedding day. There were a few bumps, that were no fault of yours, but you were there immediately to fix them. As the mother of the bride, I can say that the pressure you took off me was worth ten times the amount you charged. You both were there through every step to guide us with ease and elegance.

With your help, this wedding was more beautiful than I ever imagined…and I am sure Tony & Megan will agree. You will be highly recommended by everyone I know.
Again, thank you for making Tony & Megan’s day so incredible, and for allowing me to enjoy it without stress.

I love you both….you are an incredible team!!!!

Some of The Things Wedding Planners Do

We at celebrate! love what we do!!! In fact, I cannot imagine my life without all you amazing brides in it. I was looking through some of our past brides' wedding photos and found some fun pictures of Jen and I working (we always try not to get into the photos but sometimes the photographers sneak in a few) and I thought it would be fun to show you a little of what we do to help you on your wedding day.

We help you make sure you look absolutely perfect.

We make sure each boutonniere is placed on correctly and secured. We also deliver all the bouquets to the ladies and make sure all corsages are place on.

We are there to embrace you on the most wonderful day of your life.

We organize your reception: Make sure vendors are there, decorations are placed, everything is running on time, correct food has been prepared, etc.

Formal Invitation Wording

Your wedding guest's first impression of your wedding comes to them sealed in a beautifully lined envelope, your wedding invitation. Many of our brides ask our assistance in making sure their invitations are formally written.

Here are the guidelines:
1. Include the wedding host(s): the bride's parents, a combination of the parents, or the engaged couple
2. Include the bride's and groom's names: make sure to list your last name if different from your parents and make sure to include the groom's last name if his parents are not included on the invite
3. The date and time of the wedding
4. The location with the city: only put the state if your guests are unfamiliar with the area

Our most recent married celebrate! bride, Debby, sent me over a beautiful thank you note and I just had to share:

Jenna -

I can't express how happy Bill and I were with your care and professionalism for our recent beach wedding. The tables looked great, the food well presented and refilled as necessary, and our guests transported to and from the house and the beach in a timely manner. You kept everything flowing smoothly. Thank you, thank you!!
