Happy Holidays!

Wishing all of our brides, grooms, vendors {+ everyone in between!} a happy holiday + even better new year! We're looking forward to making more couples wedding day dreams come true for 2013.



DIY Bridal Party Schedule

We have a bride getting married TODAY {Hooray Taja + Sheldon!} who inspired me to share some tips + details to a bridal party schedule. Of course, At Last always prepares the extensive wedding day itinerary but I love it when a bride feels the need to put together a fun little schedule just for her bridal party. the first image below is the schedule that our bride prepared for her bridesmaids so they knew exactly what was going on for the big day today. Especially if you are having a large party, it will ensure that everyone stays on track, on-time, + in the "know" with all of the details for the happy couples special day.

Have you thought about making a bridal party schedule? If not, consider it now + have fun with it!



The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013!

We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of our couples who helped us become a winner of The Knot's Best of Wedding for 2013! This is our second year in a row to receive this exceptional honor. Our entire team is so very blessed to work with some of the best brides + grooms out there. Thank you all!



Engaged : Taja + Sheldon

Taja + Sheldon will be making their way to the altar very, very soon.... THIS WEEKEND! We are thrilled to be a part of their special day + happy to share their engagement photos that they took with the fabulous Sivan Photography, a while back. Stay tuned for their wedding photos very soon!



Married : Brittany + Ryan

I’m so excited to share pictures of Brittany + Ryan’s big day! This is one very sweet pair that definitely deserved to have the wedding of their dreams. This Air Force couple’s original wedding day had to be postponed after Ryan was deployed during the original set date. A year + a half later they finally got their fairytale + you better believe they had a lot to celebrate! Their stunning ceremony at Saint James Catholic Cathedral + romantic reception at Highland Manor went off without a hitch. My personal favorite moment: watching these two walk through a sword arch during their recessional- breathtaking!

Our fantastic vendors for the day:
Wedding Coordinator: At Last Wedding + Event Design
Reception Venue: Highland Manor
Photographer: Photography by Greg
Hair/Makeup: LeJeune Artistry
Transportation: Crown Limousine


Married : Jenny + John

Wowza, the details on this wedding were so extraordinary I don't even know where to begin! Jenny is quite the craftsman + created all of her wedding plans on her own... from the DIY photobooth, to the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres + even the custom china that was used for the food + cake! This rustic-do-it-yourself themed wedding was the perfect niche for this couple + the wedding day went off without a hitch with all of our fabulous vendors.

Congratulations Jenny + John! It was such a thrill to work with such a fun + quirky couple. You will be sure to have a hip/cool/awesome baby too- that's right, they are pregnant!

Those fabulous vendors that I mentioned:
Wedding Coordinator: At Last Wedding + Event Design
Venue: Winter Park Farmers Market
Photographer: Norman Yu Photography
DJ/Lighting: DJ Live Productions
Caterer: John + Shirleys
Officiant: Eddie The Shaman
Cake/Cupcakes: Sweet by Good Golly Miss Holly
Mahogany Chairs: Orlando Wedding + Party Rentals

Jenny made her own brooch bouquet- swoon!
The bride also made her bridesmaids paper + button bouquets!
