Derrick & Stephanie 12.31.11

What a way to officially end 2011 and ring in 2012!! Stephanie and Derrick did it in style. No expense was spared for this lavish occasion and it was nothing less than spectacular!

When I first met with Stephanie she was quite and reserved but by the end the was all smiles and beaming with excitement. She came to me knowing the look she wanted to achieve and with the help of one photograph of something we had done previously for another bride I took it and ran to make it unique to Stephanie! The 400+ guests in attendance were witness to the celebration that was “Stephanie and Derrek”! The party was not quiet by any means… They kept the house rockin’ with a live band AND a DJ.. so there was definitely not a lack of music!

They said their “I do’s” in the beautiful Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront with the reception to immediately follow in another ballroom of the venue. We wanted to “double duty” some of the decor so myself and my staff transferred some of the reception pieces to the altar of which the ceremony was being held. A great way to get MORE bang for your buck!

In the reception we hung sheer panels of white fabric from the ceiling above the dance floor each adorned on one end with a crystal curtain. Second, we covered the 24×24 dance floor in a stunning white acrylic! Third, we provided the sleek white lounge furniture that was staged around the dance floor. Also, in case you didn’t notice… there wasn’t a lack of “bling” anywhere..:-)It truly was a beautiful evening.

Thank you Stephanie and Derrick for allowing us to be a part of your day. We truly enjoyed working with you!

Words from the Bride……

“I met with Rachel less than 1 month prior to my actual wedding date. She was confident that the florals and other decor would be gorgeous! With her style, confidence, and samples she showed, I walked out of her studio with no worries. Our wedding was at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, Daytona Beach. Both the rooms for the ceremony and the reception were absolutely AMAZING!! Rachel’s work exceeded my expectations!!! Our guests can’t stop talking about the transformation of the reception room. Many locals said, “It was so beautiful, that I forgot I was at the Hilton!” Our florals and decor were fabulous!! We had 400 guests, and Rachel covered every bit of the room with her touch. Many suggests that we send photos to magazines. Others wondered when would David Turtera make his entrance. When my friend (a bridesmaid) is asked how was the wedding, she simply responds, “Platinum”! Thanks, Rachel! Your work is first- class!!! You made our big day PLATINUM with your FABULOUS FLORALS, etc!! : ))”
