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 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 -

To apply, please send us an explanation about your love for events and your resume to:, 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.

UNIQUE Wedding: Julie & Flo

Julie & Flo were definitely UNIQUE clients! For one, they were already married! Instead of a typical wedding, they were planning a "Decade of Love" Vow Renewal! And, they were determined to go big, or go home! A theme of BLING was definitely the common thread throughout their event! With a color scheme of black, silver, and burgundy, crystals shined as far as the eye could see! For this UNIQUE event, a sunset Cocktail Hour took place before the Ceremony. The Cocktail Hour had a black and white color scheme with a modern look, and touch of damask. The wedding party's Cocktail Hour attire was swanky, and filled with Hollywood glamour. For the Ceremony, the bride went all out with crystals and ruffles. Even the bouquets got in on the BLING, with crystal-studded roses. The Ceremony, honoring their ten years together, was filled with mounds and mounds of white rose petals and candles. It was the perfectly romantic setting for the emotional ceremony, where the couple's son gave the bride away. The Ballroom was truly a WOW, where the bride was so happy that she even made us cry! Centerpieces over five feet tall graced each tabletop of textured silver linens, velvet napkins, and crystal brooch accented menus. The wedding party sat at a long king's table filled with deep red rose petals, silver branches, and bunches of burgundy orchids. At the end of the king's table, was a sweetheart table for the bride & groom. A "bush" of greenery, roses, and branches, separated the sweetheart table, and created a cozy area for the repeat newlyweds. Even the couple's chairs were decorated, accented with floral & crystal pomanders. The cake table was definitely the focal point of the room! A five tier, textured concoction, accented with a crystal monogram cake topper, and crystal cakestand "feet" sat atop a silver pickup-style linen. A white draped chuppah with a hanging branch and crystal chandelier framed off the cake beautifully. A complimenting candy buffet kept the guests on a sugary Cloud 9 all night, and each guest was treated a CD of the couple's favorite music as a wedding favor. Even as the guests departed, they were greeted by a starburst of candles and additional candy favors, to keep the sugar high going into the night!

Even with all of the sparkle and glam, there were two things that shined even brighter, Julie & Flo! Their love shined brighter than even the most beautiful diamond!

Congratulations Julie & Flo! We wish you many more years of full joy, love, and happiness!
