Memorial Day weekend was a busy one for Southern Elegance Events! We had back to back weddings in Ft. Myers and in Sarasota. The first of these was located on Ft. Myer’s Beach on May 25, 2013. Jessica and BJ were planning their wedding all the way from St. Louis, and while Jessica had everything under control leading up to the wedding, she really needed someone day of to decorate the room and make sure she enjoyed her day. That’s where we came in!
Jessica and BJ got married on Lover’s Key Beach, then had a reception at Junkanoo’s on the Beach. Junkanoo is a beach bar with an upstairs room, but it’s not your typical wedding venue. It does have a great view though, and with a little decorating, it was the perfect setting for their purple and green party! Jessica had brought all her decorations down and dropped them off, so all we had to do was show up and set everything up!
She had beautiful tulle draping with icicle lights for the dance floor, succulents, sand and candles for the centerpieces and adorable bottles for advice from their guests.
She also had a candy bar of all she and BJ’s favorite candies, in their color scheme with the cutest little bags to take candy home in.
Jessica had ordered custom photo books with covers in their color scheme to grace the tables, and had photos of both their parents for the entrance.
The custom coozies were a hit with the guests, and Jessica even gave us 2 to take home! Every time we use them we remember this gorgeous day, and what a happy and fun loving couple Jessica and BJ are. They were all smiles, all day, and their guests seemed right at home overlooking Ft. Myer’s Beach.
