Kiss & Tell: Jimmy & Amanda

Jimmy & Amanda are such a great couple, and they had these kind words to say -

"I seriously do not know how I could have done all of that without you...you were absolutely amazing and I will recommend you to every bride I know, without a doubt.

A little birdie told me that my sister will be getting engaged very soon, so you can most definitely expect more business from our family!! ;)

Thanks Staci, you're the best!!!!


Amanda & Jimmy, we enjoyed helping you achieve your dream wedding! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. We wish you a happy and blessed life together!

UNIQUE Wedding: Amanda & Anthony

Amanda & Anthony were such a joy to work with! We absolutely LOVED Amanda's style of Martha Stewart meets Southern Weddings. She chose to have a daytime, Sunday wedding, and a soft color scheme of green, blue, & ivory. The sunlight was the perfect accent to the wedding, and helped create the perfect atmosphere for a garden wedding. Amanda looked stunning and soft, in her simple ivory gown and pearls! Hollis Gardens was a UNIQUE setting, and offered just the right amount of decor, nothing else was needed. The groomsmen did not wear suit jackets, but rather ties and suspenders. The bridesmaids wore short green, strapless dresses. The guests were greeted by a tree of hanging escort cards. The fireplace was decorated with a clothesline of engagement photos and bunches of baby's breath. The ceiling was covered in multi-colored Chinese lanterns. Three different kinds of centerpieces graced the guest tables, from organic and natural to modern and clean. Ivory linens and black garden chairs filled the room. The sweetheart table had flowers growing from a bed of moss on the tabletop. The simple white cake was accented with beads and a stem of white phalenopsis orchids, atop a light blue pintuck linen. The cake was framed off with ivory lanterns and parasols, and was definitely the focal point in the room!

Amanda & Anthony, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your special day! Please enjoy your life together!

UNIQUE Wedding: Emily & Robert

When we first met Emily & Robert, it was evident that they were truly in love and wanted a bright, sunny, Spring wedding to celebrate it! The bride chose to carry a bouquet of orange and hot pink Gerber daisies, which completely complimented the pink, whimsical bridesmaid dresses. The Ceremony consisted of white garden chairs and a white gazebo accented with Gerber daisies and white fabric. Rose petals and small Chinese lanterns tied with ribbon lined the aisle. Inside the club, bottles of daisies and candle hurricanes of petals sat atop pink & orange overlays. Whimsical table numbers and floral menus graced each table. The cake was a simple, all white design with ribbon. The cake table had loads of daisies, petals, and candles. We continued the theme by adding touches of daisy heads and votive candles all over the club. When it came to their wedding party, Emily and Robert definitely get the award for funnest wedding party! The groomsmen especially were hilarious! The culmination of the day, a fully bubble departure for the newlyweds!

Emily & Robert, thank you so much for allowing us to add a UNIQUE touch to your wedding! We wish you all the best for a long and happy life together.

UNIQUE Opportunity!

Are you UNIQUE? If so, then you may be interested in joining our dynamic team! UNIQUE Event Design offers Internship & Apprenticeship opportunities, and welcomes individuals that are highly creative, motivated, and seeking a future career as an event planner. This is a great opportunity to learn and receive hands-on experience within the event planning industry. Through our Internship & Apprenticeship programs, you can advance your career, earn college credit, and gain experience in an industry with amazing advantages, even more amazing people, and be involved in the creation of stylish and UNIQUE events. It’s not all fun and games. We work seriously hard, and as a part of our team, you will get a behind the scenes view on what really goes on before, during, and after the execution of an event. Participation in our Internship & Apprenticeship Program offers the Potential to grow with the business.

The ideal candidate must have a passion for events, and be organized, detail oriented, responsible, very outgoing, energetic, and patient, have a great personality, and a sense of humor. Some event planning experience and a design background is preferred, but not necessary. You must be able / willing to work weekends and be able to think quickly on your feet.

These positions are best suited for members of the Association of Bridal Consultants, individuals that are currently enrolled in an event educational program and who will receive credit for the hours completed, or for someone wanting to break into the wedding / event field. We are looking for people who are willing to work and learn.

If you are looking to learn about all of the aspects of event planning, then our internship program is perfect for you! In addition to events, you will assist with the day-to-day studio duties. Our internships run for three month periods of time, but are very flexible in regards to scheduling. The hours will vary, but should not exceed 20 hours per week.

Some duties you will be taking part in, are -
- Administrative support
- Organizing info & supplies
- Maintaining client files
- Vendor & client correspondence
- Assistance in research & wedding planning assistance
- Working on design boards for clients
- Meetings & site walk thrus
- …and much more!

This is an unpaid position, but the experience that you gain will be invaluable. You will be involved in as many events throughout the year as your schedule allows. Upon completion of the internship, you will be awarded a Certificate and Letter of Recommendation.

To apply, please send us an explanation about your love for events and your resume to: info@uniqueeventdesign.com, and label your message, “Internship.”

If you are looking to participate in the coordination of an event, then our apprenticeship program would be your best fit. This is a “hands on” position that involves the preparation, execution, and wrap up of a single event. This is a four day commitment with varying hours, and is offered at a first come, first serve basis. We only accept one apprentice per event, and events typically take place in the West Coast of Florida. You will experience the same level of exposure to the event coordination as an assistant planner.

This is an unpaid position, but the experience that you gain will be invaluable. Upon completion of the apprenticeship, you will be awarded a Certificate and the opportunity to receive professional photos of the event that may be included in your portfolio.

To apply, please send us an explanation about your love for events and your resume to: info@uniqueeventdesign.com, and label your message, “Apprenticeship.”

UNIQUE Event Design is a great company to work for and I look forward to meeting you soon!
