We had so much fun working with Katie and Tom to coordinate their burgundy and navy Lake Mary Events Center wedding this past December! You know it’s going to be a great wedding when you and the bride have the same name…I mean instant connection!
They chose navy, burgundy and gold as their colors which were beautiful! Tom’s mom did a wonderful job with all of the details from the welcome sign to aisle arrangements and table numbers. Tom even created a beer specifically for their wedding and even came up with a matching label! Each guest was able to take one home with them at the end of the night to enjoy.
The ceremony was held in the rotunda and it was officiated by a close family friend named Charlie. He was the sweetest! It is always such special touch having someone close to you marry the two of you! Immediately following the ceremony, the newlyweds went outside to capture a few formal portraits before sunset while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. The reception was held in the ballroom. Candelabras appointed with beautiful arrangements created by Longwood Events transformed the space. It was so romantic! The Craig Thompson Band provided music for the evening and they did a wonderful job! Our friends at Sugar Sugar Cake Boutique created a beautiful (and yummy) cake for guests and Arthur’s Catering did a phenomenal job with the food (as always).
The newlyweds ended the night with a sparkler exit! It was the perfect ending to such a wonderful day! Congrats Katie and Tom!

Katie’s favorite wedding details / moments: I loved Katie’s dress! It fit her perfectly and she looked stunning! Joe and I love craft beer so the fact Tom used his mater brewing skills to create a custom brew for the big day was awesome! First looks are always amazing, but when it’s a first look between dad and daughter, they’re priceless. Such a special moment between Katie and her dad!

From the bride…“I truly can not say enough about Katie with Big Day Celebrations! I contacted quite a few wedding coordinators before Katie, but I am so thankful I did not just settle for just anybody. The moment I spoke with her over the phone I knew I found my girl! The most exciting day of my life had finally arrived on that special day in December, and Katie was on top of everything and kept me calm and in the loop. She has such an amazing personality you can’t help but feel at ease and positive that everything will go as planned… and it did! I could not ask for a more perfect wedding day. I would recommend Katie to any girl who is looking for the best coordinator on their wedding day!”
