Life is a special occasion

Another Lauren Daversa Event

Bride K and Groom B are getting married and Lauren Daversa Events is helping to plan their special day. The date has not been set yet, but the event will occur in late October of 2009. The ceremony and reception will be held at sunset at the couple's home. Simple and chic, they want to incorporate fall colors; specifically espresso brown. It will be a beautiful evening.

First thing on the agenda is securing a tent that comes equipped with air conditioning and will accommodate 150 people for dining and dancing.

Below is the dress she chose for her bridesmaids from J Crew. It is the Cotton Cady Lydia Dress in chocolate. "Elegant in crisp cotton cady with a subtle sheen. Halter silhouette. Fitted bodice, full skirt. V-neck and ruching at center front. Inset empire waistband. On-seam pockets. Ties at back neck. Back zip. Fully lined. Falls just below knee; 26" from natural waist. Import. Dry clean. Catalog/ only."

Location Secured For Bride N & Groom C's Wedding

The Bamboo Gallery, located at 2325 South Flamingo Road in Davie, Florida. This will be the site for both the ceremony and the reception. Complete with tiki huts, waterfalls, beach, landscape lighting, tiki torches, indoor kitchen and full bathrooms. The Bamboo Gallery has teak benches and rattan furniture throughout the property. In addition, there is a 2,000 square foot tented area. One bonus is when you book the Bamboo Gallery, the entire facility is yours!

Decido writes that the Bamboo Gallery comes alive at night, and hositng an event there is like having it on your own pricate island.

This weekend will be the first time I've been to this venue but it looks amazing and I can't wait to check it out! The pictures below illustrate the lush, tropical scenery the site provides at this all outdoor, island setting. Bride N & Groom C's wedding is going to be gorgeous!!!

Lauren Daversa's First Official Event

Bride N and Groom C are getting married on May 23rd, 2009, and Lauren Daversa Events is going to be helping plan their special day!

At this point, the event is a blank canvas. The bride-to-be and her fiance have shared the following ideas with me:

  1. They would like to be married by the water at sunset
  2. The theme is a tropical Caribbean celebration
  3. Their color scheme is fuschia and orange
  4. Estimated 80 attendees

First things first: location, location, location! Can't move forward until we have a location. Securing the location is my main priority. The ceremony will be held by the water, location T.B.D. There are a few venues I am going to research for the reception. The main criteria is being able to offer food and beverages for eighty people for around $5,000. NO PROBLEM!

It is incredibly exciting to plan the first Lauren Daversa Events and I look forward to writing about the journey along the way!
