Hurricane Wedding at the Citrus Club in Downtown Orlando | Jackie + Chris

Hurricane... Matthew....

That bad boy tried pretty hard to make Jackie + Chris's wedding not happen but let's just say (in a corny but cute way!) that love overcame this obstacle + this wedding turned out wonderfully! Yes, we had some adjustments in our guest count, a canceled rehearsal + other issues come up but overall this special day for Jackie + Chris really did come together quite nicely. The sun was actually shining + the weather was utterly magical so they were able to get some fantastic photos out + about, as you will see below. The ceremony was beautifully emotional + the reception looked completely glorious... + it makes it easy to have an amazing wedding when the dance floor is packed all night!

I'm so thrilled that this wedding turned out so lovely for these two! Jackie + Chris, what a treasure you two are + it was such a joy to work with you both for the past 10 months to help create such a dreamy wedding day :)

 Jackie's Review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
Our wedding was the Saturday after Hurricane Matthew. Needless to say, the week leading up to our wedding was extremely stressful. Jaclyn had already done an amazing job up to this point -- confirming all our vendors, putting together an awesome and detailed timeline, and providing advice throughout the whole wedding-planning process. However, once it became clear that the hurricane was going to have a huge impact on the wedding, Jaclyn became even more indispensible. During the days leading up to the wedding, Jaclyn checked in with us and all our vendors and kept on top of everything to make sure that everyone was on the same page and had the most up-to-date information to be able to make any changes necessary. Due to the weather, we ended up with around 40 less guests than expected. Jaclyn worked seamlessly with us and all of the vendors to make sure that our wedding was just as we imagined it, even with this huge, unexpected weather issue. The morning of the wedding, Jaclyn re-arranged our floor plan to make sure that the room looked both full and just as we originally imagined it. She went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was perfect, including making a last minute shopping trip to get a fancy hanger for dress photos. She did all of this on top of taking care of every other small detail, from making sure our ceremony ran perfectly (despite our rehearsal being cancelled since it was supposed to take place in the middle of the storm), to packing up all of our keepsakes at the end of the night. I don't just recommend that every couple hire Jaclyn, I would scream it from the rooftops if I could. She was a lifesaver, and helped both keep me calm (nearly impossible) and make our wedding day perfect, despite a huge hurricane.
