Tariq & Camille- Fort Myers, Florida

Have you heard of La Casa Toscana?

It’s a BRAND new venue in Fort Myers, FL. We are so excited to be opening this space to the public.

This venue has been a private event venue for the owner’s children. We had the pleasure to not only plan Tariq & Camille’s wedding this winter in Fort Myers, Florida but also Tariq’s older sisters wedding a few years ago.

LOVE STORY

A few years ago, we were hired to plan Tariq’s older sister’s wedding at the same location. This event was breathtaking. So, after Tariq and Camille got engaged, we knew this was going to be an unforgettable event!

Camille got a message from Tariq’s sister on Instagram. This was a SET UP! Niza has been following Camille online and knew she was just the kind of person her brother needed. So, after an online introduction the two decided to meet.

A BLIND DATE

Tariq was living in Florida and Camille in Virginia. The long distance did not stop them! After their first date they knew that this was something different.

It wasn’t long until they were engaged and planning their event at La Casa Toscana.

Their ceremony was outdoor under the gazebo on property. They chose dark brown chairs to contrast the beautiful whites and blushes tones of the wedding.

COCKTAILS & DINNER

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour on the lawn. The guest’s then moved to the dinner where they ate under the verandas and danced under the stars.

DANCING

Tariq & Camille’s wedding day was one of the best events we have had the pleasure to be a part of. This event was filled so many languages! French & Spanish were spoken more than English and we could not have been happier see such a blend of cultures.

The love between the couple and their families was evident in every conversation. Both families wanted to honor their faith and belief in God and the love they showed every single vendor and guest is something everyone could feel. What a beautiful event.

After all these years and experiencing this amazing family, how they treat everyone no matter what. We are so excited that this beautiful space is now available to the public!

What a GEM this is to everyone who gets the pleasure of coming into contact with it.

How to Handle a "MaidZilla"

Last weekend, we were interviewed by Wedding Wire!!

They asked us to help them help you on how to handle a “MaidZilla!”


So you know, when your friends love you JUST A LITTLE TOO MUCH…


Yeah, I mean we all want friends who will have our back no matter what! But, on the big day, how do you handle a tense situation?

We’re sharing our thoughts and ideas here, you DON’T WANT TO MISS IT!

The Average Cost of a 2017 Wedding

Photo by:  Hunter Ryan Photo

ARE YOU PAYING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR WEDDING VENDORS?

Friends, let’s be honest! Does anyone really know how much a wedding costs? I mean, how could you? You’ve never done it before right? Or it was so long ago you can’t remember?

Well, we have joined with The Knot to bring you some pricing knowledge about the big scary word, BUDGET.

We hope that this information will help guide you to the national average price of a wedding, to educate you so when sifting through all the vendors and contracts during your planning process, you can have peace of mind that what you are paying is actually what you SHOULD BE PAYING.

And before, we go any further. One of the most important things you can do for your planning process is…

SET A BUDGET

The knot has a great tool to help you get started.

And the second most important thing you can do is…

List what is most important to you.

What part of your wedding are you NOT willing to cut back on.?Then know everything else, may have to compromise to ensure your budget it kept.


Below is the AVERAGE price of wedding vendors for 2017.

Sourced from theknot.com

TOTALING $43,162

Does this match with what you’re finding? If not, remember, you can allocate different amounts to categories that YOU THINK are a priority. And of course, your wedding planner is a great resource to help you digest all of this.
