We have some very UNIQUE news to share with you! It looks like we may a wedding on the calendar for 2037! Staci and her husband are expecting their first child!

In preparation for this big change, we've opted to close the studio so that Staci can work from home and keep an eye on the little one.

We are still taking a good number of weddings for 2012 and we are looking forward to the newest challenge ahead - juggling parenthood and event planning!

Thank you for your support and God bless!

UNIQUE Feature: Kate & Mike at St. John Vianney Catholic Church & the St. Pete Beach Community Center

Kate and Mike were a recommendation from previous client, Kristin and Jason. This is such a sweet couple that hired us months before their wedding and upon coming to the studio for their final meeting, we were so excited to find out that they were expecting their first child! I adored their color scheme of lime and a corally orange! It was so refreshing against the water backdrop. Since this couple are serious dog-lovers, the table numbers had photos of their dogs and the escort cards with dog treats asking the guests to "SIT" at their table. The dance floor was accented with an array of Chinese lanterns and added the perfect pop of color against the white ceiling. The couple opted to do a trivia game, where they raised either the Bride's shoe or the Groom's shoe in response to questions asked by the DJ. The guests were on the floor! An especially great moment was when the Bride posed with two of our previous brides, Melinda & Kristin!

Kate & Mike, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding!

KISS & TELL: Priscilla & John

Life Long Studios

"Staci, of Unique Event Design in one word is amazing! I worked with Staci from start to finish and she made all of our dreams come true. She is very detailed and the best in the business. We had no idea what treat we were in for during our ceremony and reception after we had to make sudden changes due to rain. STACI had it all figured out and executed it BRILLIANTLY. Hands down, Staci is gifted and a blessing. She will forever be a household name with the Wilson and Conyers families."

Priscilla & John:
Thank you so much for the honor of being a part of your wedding. It was such a joy to get to know you two during the planning process and we wish you all the best for a long and happy life together!
