A Lovely Note

Hi Heather,

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work!!! (and your assistant of course!!) Everything was perfect and I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding!! It really was great having you there and thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job! I really felt like you had everything under control and I didn’t even think about any of the details, which was great…and neither did our Moms which is always a good thing!! 😉

Thank you again, and we could not have done it without you! I don’t know if you like to have any pictures of the wedding, etc., but I will forward the photo link to you if you like (I think the pics should be up in a few days!).

Thanks and I hope you have a happy and healthy New Year!

— Liz

And Baby Makes Three

One of our fall 2007 couples, Ashley and John, welcomed their first baby boy to their family just after their anniversary in October.  It is always so exciting to keep up with our clients after their weddings are over, and I couldn’t be more happy for this adorable threesome.  Jack, you couldn’t have chosen nicer parents!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The First Coast Weddings and Events team wishes you and your family all the best this holiday season.

Our offices will be closed for the long weekend, except for pre-arranged appointments.  Happy Turkey Day!

Sweet 16 With A Cause

As I was reading the local news on FirstCoastNews.com on my Blackberry this morning, I came across this article that made me happy, and I wanted to share it.

YULEE, FL — It’s sweet 16 for Kelsey Morgan. The party is planned and the theme is in place.

“It’s classy in pink, my favorite color is pink,” says Morgan.

Decorations are ready.

“You have to have the right pink, you can’t have the light pink, it’s got to be the dark pink,” says Kelsey’s grandmother, Claudia Morgan.

The cause is an important one.

“Well, I really didn’t want a big party so I figured if I was going to do one I’d rather do something with it,” says Kelsey Morgan.

She is. She’s asking all of her 150 plus guests to donate to the First Coast Cancer Foundation instead of giving presents. This party may be in Kelsey’s name, but it’s dedicated to those in her family fighting cancer. Her grandmother was diagnosed in February.

“She watched that MTV on those spoiled 16 year olds having those big parties and she said I don’t want anything like that, I want my party to be for somebody else, not for me,” says Claudia Morgan.

Cancer also took the life of Kelsey’s great-grandmother.

“We know she can’t cure cancer but we hope one day it can be cured, and what money we raised we feel like every little donation will help,” says Claudia Morgan.

It’s help that this 16 year old wants to give, hoping that whatever she collects will go a long way.

“People our age are told they can’t make a difference, and we can so, that’s what I want to tell them,” says Morgan.

Kelsey Morgan is in the 10th grade at Yulee High School. She hopes to be a neonatal nurse when she is older.

Donations can be made to the First Coast Cancer Foundation through First Coast Oncology.

It’s Our 6th Anniversary!

Today marks the 6th anniversary for First Coast Weddings and Events!  I can’t believe how quickly time has passed.  It seems like I was just filling out a mountain of paperwork in my home office to form the corporation.

Six years later, our team has grown, our voice in the wedding industry has grown, and our friendships have grown.  I feel truly honored to have such a great team in place, both with my staff and our vendors.

Our location has also changed over the years, from my home office to Sawgrass Village in Ponte Vedra Beach to our current home at The Wedding Party.

We have worked at venues from Palm Coast to Tallahassee and everywhere in between.  We’ve seen several couples go on to have babies, and we’re always thrilled when we get birth announcements and family photos.  One of our past clients even became a valued part of our team!

Thank you all for being a part of our success!  Cheers!
