Today for Wedding Trend Tuesday we are highlighting Tina and Jim’s wedding favors from their Saint Cloud, Florida wedding held at Cobblestone Events and Rentals. I have been asked numerous times “Mandy, what should we give as favors to our guests?” My answer is almost always the same, Something Edible! Guests love to have something either they can enjoy while at your event or a little taste for on the way home. Either way your guests will actually use the favor and you will not be wasting your money on something more than likely to be thrown away at a later date.
Tina and Jim decided to send their guests off with a mini box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and their special blend of coffee beans. The presentation at Cobblestone Events and Rentals was beautiful and was a great way to show the guests what to expect at the end of the celebration.
The trend of edible favors is not new to the wedding community but is becoming more and more popular over the years. Where is first began with Jordan almonds and chocolate kisses in a organza bags, it has now moved to elaborately created Candy Bar/Buffets, S’mores Bars, Ice cream bars and of course the beloved doughnut. Not to mention, your photographer loves them too! 😉
This Family Photography Friday we are throwing back to 2015 Holiday Family sessions with the Peake Family. Oh how I love this family! I cannot wait to see them again this year.
Family Fun Friday means sometimes you just need to hang out at the playground with your little one. My mother and I took my Little to the Playground to run off some energy and man did we have a great time. It was so very hot. You know, Florida summer HOT! I can tell you that the heat did not slow my munchkin down at all.
So looking forward to watching her grow more and more everyday, and most certainly awaiting the next “Play Date” together.
I wanted to take a moment to recognize some amazing men in my life. My husband, my dad, my brother and my father-in-law. Thank you for everything you do or have done for our families and your children. We may not always show appreciation when necessary or sometimes have our falling outs, but our families will always love and need our men, our fathers, our friends. Thank you!
On your wedding day you are supposed to look your best, better than you ever have before. Choosing the right dress and accessories, as well as the wedding party’s, can help accentuate your look. A extremely dreamy gown or Bond-like suit will make you look fabulous as you exchange your vows.
This Bride chose a gown that was form fitting. Small train with simple veil. She added to her ensemble a pair of silver Michael Kors pumps, and made sure her outfit was complete with her “Something Blue” garter.
Her bridesmaids all wore different colored gowns with a lace overlay that complimented them all wonderfully.
Whatever you decide for your attire, make sure it is what you want, what you feel beautiful or handsome in and that you can ROCK for the rest of the day!
Canoe Creek Family Dental just opened their doors a few months ago in Saint Cloud, Florida and I was contacted by the contracting company Skyline Construction to take the building photos. I must say that whoever designed this office space is extremely talented. Its gorgeous! They have a mini fridge and Keurig machine in the lobby add in a flat screen TV to keep up with the daily events and you are all set. The orange, brown and gold tones throughout made the space warm and inviting, not to mention the very hospitable staff.
While waiting to get into some of the rooms to take the photographs I was offered food, drink and too many smiles to count. You can view more information about the office and the dentist Amrita Singh, DMD on their webpage. But first check out the slideshow below to get a taste of this beautiful space!
