Now On Newstands!

It’s finally here – the debut issue of Southern Weddings!  I picked up my copy this morning at Barnes and Noble on my way in to the office.  While I have only had a chance to flip through the pages, I can tell already that it is on my “faves” list!

Spotlight: Velon Designs

I was catching up on some blog-reading this morning and came across a product I have to share.  It was featured in my friend and fellow wedding planner Tammy Waterman’s blog recently, and was also in Sasha Souza’s Sparkliatti blog earlier this year.

Velon Designs provides a wonderful product for lining the inside of tents.  Velon is a vinyl made from recylced plastic, and is 100% recyclable as well.  It is waterproof,  flame resistant, and drapes as well as fabric.

Velon can be printed in a variety of colors and patterns – or you can supply your own custom design!  The possibilities are endless.  Ask your tent rental company about using this great product for your wedding!

Spotlight: One Ocean Resort Hotel & Spa

Today Danielle and I attended a National Association of Catering Executives meeting at One Ocean, Jacksonville’s newest hotel and event venue.  The food was delicious!  Here are some snapshots I took during our tour:
