What Is Love Wedd???

This evening I had dinner with on of my very best friends and she asked me, "What is this Love Wedd thing I keep seeing on Facebook?"

I told her that it is a bridal boutique...meaning it is like a store, in Haile Village Center in the same building as Footstone Photography, Adore Weddings and Events, and Unique Designs. The boutique will have a receptionist at the desk when you walk in the front door. Then you can browse the room and see displays featuring the work of some of Gainesville's top vendors.  Platinum Digital Video will have a display there so anyone can check out our work and ask questions during normal business hours (which we never it will be nice to have that available to potential customers.) We are really honored to be a part of the Love Wedd team and are excited about the venture. 

To kick it all off, we are having a VIP Preview event that you will need to RSVP to. See the information below.  To RSVP just go to the Facebook Event Page and click on "attending" to let us know that yes, you are interested in tasting cakes from Dream Day Cakes, eating some yummy food from Olive You Catering and seeing the amazing designs by Keith Watson Productions and The Grande Event. Also The Plant Shoppe will have some stunning flower arrangements on display.  Come and meet with the one and only, Melissa of Masterpiece Weddings. And of course, G-NYs Entertainment will be mixing it it up with REAL RECORDS.  So come and see who the Love Wedd crew is.

Ms. Debbie's Cake Art, Cake Tasting Event, Say It Sweetly

This was jaw dropping. when I walked in I couldn't believe how beautiful Villa East looked with it's dark tan walls lit with "mood lighting". The Event Diva's had created spectacular room decor. I won't even try to do it justice by explainig it with words. you will just have to see on the video posted below.

The vendor booths were set up around the room when you first walked in, then once you ventured a little further, past Melissa (of Masterpiece Weddings) manning the curtains, you walked into what was like a child's dream from a fairy tale...candy and cake world! The displays were colorful and like little works of art, as were the cakes. And you got to eat all of the cake you wanted, there were no limits, just your own judgment. You kind of had to be careful not to get cake-drunk. The meatballs provided by Celebrations were also and addiction for me that I had try not to let get out of control. So the food and sweets were the highlight of the evening, but there was something about that place that made people happy. The vendors had a good time talking and hanging out on their night away from the kids.

All in all it was a very successful evening. I made a little short video of it (you might even see me in there if you make it to the 3rd minute in). I enjoyed finding all of my favorite "sweet" songs to put in there. Check it out...enjoy!!
