Glynis and Brad live in Philadelphia but wed in the bride’s hometown of Fort Lauderdale! I absolutely loved every single detail of the day! It was fun, warm, inviting, and the details were just perfect! Here is a little bit more from their amazing planners at Event Bliss Design…
“Glynis and Brad came to us about a year before their wedding with a couple key goals for their wedding:
1. It had to be fun — Glynis and I spoke extensively about how lively her group was and that she wanted her wedding to reflect a party atmosphere. We decided that it would be best to have the dinner tent and dancing tent separate so that their guests had an entire tent to really let loose, and did they ever. We transformed the dancing tent into an elegant club atmosphere, with lounge groupings and cocktail tables, and minimal decor so that it still felt cohesive to their wedding design but the emphasis for this space was more on partying. Separating the spaces allowed the guests room to mingle and chat but also gave plenty of space to dance — never have I seen a more packed dance floor. What a fun bunch!
2. It had to be colorful and bright — Glynis and Brad chose to have their wedding at the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale, which by nature is a very vibrant and colorful space. It is one of the most unique pieces of architecture in Fort Lauderdale, with bright yellow walls and blue and red accents, and we felt it was important to preserve its uniqueness. We kept the table linens simple with white linen and wood exposed tables so that the flowers would really pop off the tables and complement the surrounding views of the existing landscaping. The design was so tailored to Bonnet House it was as if we had picked the flowers from the gardens of the Bonnet House itself.
3. It had to reflect Glynis and Brad as a couple — So many of the details of their wedding played off of their story as a couple and their individual personalities. From the priest who married them to the second line jazz band that escorted the bridal party in to the dinner tent, every piece of this wedding had its own Glynis and Brad spin on it.”
Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors who helped bring their vision to life!
