UNIQUE Option: Instead of Bouquets

UNIQUE brides are always on the lookout for new and innovative options for their wedding. So, a great alternative to the traditional floral bouquet, is a fabulous patterned or multi-colored clutch. You get the same effect against a solid colored dress, and you can totally use it again! Etsy seller, Upstyle Design, features these, and loads of other glamorous designs!

You can either have each girl carry the clutch as is, or you can give the purses to your florist, and they can add some flowers spilling out the top. Either way, you will definitely make a statement with your fabulous fashion sense!

Kiss & Tell: Kaara & Chris

"Staci far exceeded my expectations. Many of the planners I interviewed weren't excited about my choice of black, white, and apple green as my wedding colors. But one look at Staci's website and I knew I'd love her! Because I knew I could never pull together all of the ideas in my head, I was specifically looking for a Day of Coordinator that could take the random pieces and create a breathtaking wedding that reflected the groom & I, Staci has a background in Interior Design, so her eye is exquisite. Our wedding reception was GORGEOUS and I didn't have anything to do with it! She was a valuable resource during the planning, but the day of, I was so happy to have her in my corner. She kept us insulated from the vendors, well fed, on time, and on budget! We would not have had such a wonderful day, if it were not for her. I am wholeheartedly recommending her to anyone that needs a Planner / Day of Coordinator with an eye for design!"

Stay tuned for lots of fabulous photos from Kaara & Chris' sophisticated, modern wedding!

Kissing in the Rain

Engagement photos are a right of passage for most couples, and Threasa & Justin were no different! The only challenge was, scheduling their engagement photo session during an already very short engagement. They didn't have the luxury of rescheduling their session in the midst of a rainy Summer. So, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade!

Threasa & Justin decided to go with it, and make their engagement session truly UNIQUE...

You can clearly see their love for one another, even in the middle of the rain!

UNIQUE Event: Association of Bridal Consultants Networking Mixer

We were so excited to plan the first Marketing Event since the new Tampa Museum of Art opened its doors! The Association of Bridal Consultants hosted their Networking Mixer. The architecture of this building is truly breathtaking! The metal & glass create a modern, industrial design. The pops of color and floral/decor touches added the perfect subtle accent the UNIQUE look of the Tampa Museum of Art!

Mise en Place created a flow through the building with lots of fun food stations! Wine tasting in Sono Cafe, duck nachos & mojitos on the Sullivan Terrace, & pasta and tuna in the Atrium. When the guests were not dining and drinking, they were mingling through the museum, viewing the art work of numerous different artists. Our guest speaker was Bryan Coward of Tampa Wonderworks. He presented the latest advancements in wedding videography.

After the presentation, all of the guests headed outside, where we enjoyed sweets & dessert cocktails while taking in the skyline of downtown Tampa, the University of Tampa, & the "wow-worthy" artistic light show on the building exterior.

Thank you so much to the Tampa Museum of Art, Mise en Place, Tampa Wonderworks, Botanica International Design Studio, Tina Bass Photography, and everyone that attended the ABC Networking Mixer!
