I want to start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED working with Jeremy and Neal! They are so dang cute and we had a blast working together to plan their big day at the beautiful Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando.
The theme of the wedding was a true reflection of their love for cruising and hanging out by the pool. For the ceremony, Cheryl’s Distinctive Creations lined the aisle with ferns and created two beautiful arrangements out of palms, ferns and greenery that anchored Jeremy and Neal, creating a beautiful backdrop for pictures. Those elements along with the already beautiful Signature Island made for an oh-so perfect ceremony. Speaking of ceremony, I must say it was one of the most heart-felt ceremonies I have ever experienced. I can remember standing by Kristin of Our DJ Rocks as both our eyes began to water as Jeremy and Neal exchanged the most beautiful vows you have ever heard. They love each other so very much and it glowed during their ceremony. It was so perfect!
Cocktail hour took place on Signature Island as well and guests enjoyed delicious cocktails and appetizers as they mingled to the perfect Caribbean-inspired playlist. The newlyweds were able to enjoy this time with their guests as well because they chose to knock out all of their pictures before the ceremony. As you know already, I’m a huge fan of this! 🙂
Now let’s talk about the reception. It was beautiful! We literally brought the pool inside. Kristin lit up the room with the perfect blue uplighting. Cheryl’s Distinctive Creations decked out their head table with the ferns and palm arrangements from the ceremony (I’m all about re-using) and incorporated a mix of high and low centerpieces, which gave the room the perfect, poolside look. A Chair Affair provided natural chiavari chairs along with their teal peacock glass chargers for an added pop of color. Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner as they listened to the perfect steel drum playlist and afterwards they enjoyed yummy, hand-made desserts crated by Jeremy’s family! Talk about the best dessert display ever. SO GOOD!
After dinner, everyone broke it down on the dance floor and enjoyed time in the photobooth. The night ended with a sparkler grand exit as the newlyweds were carried off on a golf cart. It was the best day ever and we were to happy we were abel to be a part of it all!! #LoveIsLove. Wedding planning package – Sweet and Simple.

From the groom…“Katie was the perfect wedding planner for our special day. She was organized, energetic, positive, and so thoughtful. She made the planning a breeze. With us both being grooms, it’s safe to say neither one of us had thought about our wedding our whole lives and Katie helped ease the anxiety of not knowing all the little details. I hope everyone has someone half as good as her for their special day!”
