Creekside and Haile Plantation Country Club Events

Our Sunday packed with events was as eventful as we had hoped. We spoke to some lovely brides and vendors at Creekside. It is always a blast to hang with Jeff from Gainesville's famous, J&S Photography and it is always a struggle to have discipline around the samples of goodies by Dream Day cakes. Creekside Clippers showed off some beautiful samples of wedding hair options and Jay's Bridal was buzzing with customers who came to checkout what was going on after they had made their dress purchases. ADORE's pretty new space is now right next to the Grand Event. They are both must-see planning stops at the Creekside Plaza.

Later that afternoon we headed over to Haile Plantation Country Club where my hubby, Jeff had thoughtfully brought the camera. You can check out this short film which will give you a good of idea of what went down there...from a toilet paper dress contest to a fight to the ground for a bouquet that equaled a $1700 prize...a wedding at Haile.

More stellar vendors graced the Haile event (see list below). A HUGE thanks to the talented Brittany for putting it together. There was just a great vibe throughout the whole event and of course, Jarad and Lauren of G-nys Entertainment had something to do with that great vibe.

So a huge thank you to my vendor friends and all the lovely engaged couples and moms I chatted with. I look forward to our meetings.

Here is the short film I put together after coming home on Sunday evening.

Vendors included:
Platinum Digital Video,

Sunday Wedding Sunday

This Sunday Jeff and I will be working two huge wedding vendor events.

I (Shena) will be at the Wedding Day Showcase at Creekside mall (next to Jay's Bridal) from noon to 4pm inside ADORE's new space. I will be showing some films and answering questions.

Jeff will be at The Wedding Open House in Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club from 3-5pm.

It is perfect for brides to be able to do both in one day. So come and see at me at Creekside then go on over to Haile and tell Jeff that you just chatted with his wife. You should ask he and I the same questions about how we make our wedding films and see if our answers are the same or not!

Truly the vendors you will meet there are remarkably talented...we are honored to be a part of the events. There will be amazing discounts, incentives and prices at both events.


February and March are our months of celebrating We have birthday's for the 3 munchkins and my hubby all between February 20th and March 13th. All 3 kids and the hubby get separate birthday parties, whew!

Party #1- Star Wars Party in the back yard with 16 friends and everyone gets a pool noodle light saber
Party #2 - American Girl Slumber "Art" Party
Party #3 - Meet a group of hubby's friends at the Top for Happy Hour weekday party
Party # 4 - Thomas Party at Grandma and Papi's or at the park...don't know yet

So with a packed schedule of editing, mommying and birthday partying, no one is allowed to get sick. Life is good, and I'm looking forward to a little more blogging perhaps :)
