The Pelican Room at the Gasparilla Inn & Club {A Groom’s best friend}

October 21

The Pelican Room at the Gasparilla Inn & Club shares a rich and interesting history.

“A special room, the Pelican Room, was built in about 1932 for use by the longstanding Pelican Club members. Their trophies were displayed and club members could share fishing stories and yarns, smoke cigars, shoot billiards or engage in conversation and perhaps, at the end of Prohibition, enjoy a cocktail. The hotel would have no public cocktail lounge until after World War II.”

Concept Bait + Yvette Price Events = Vendor Love!

June 14

It has been about a week since I got back from Vegas where I attended my third engage!12 (more on that later)

I wanted to take a few minutes to highlight the remarkable talents of the lovely team over at http://www.conceptbait.com/

Suzan Gough and I began working on this charming Banyan Street wedding ceremony probably over one year ago.
I had my ideas, and she had her ideas and then of course our sweet, sweet Bride Kilee Moenning had her own thoughts and inspiration.
While we went back and forth quite a bit during the process and I could imagine what Banyan Street would look like, Suzan and her team
went above and beyond my expectations and those of the bride and her family.  Lynn McGhee, Frank Clemente and Suzan you guys rocked out this vision with ease and without a hitch.  You made it look so easy to just throw together all the elements of this gorgeous wedding ceremony yet I know
how hard you all worked to make it come together.  I can’t be more grateful to all of you for making my experience with you all so wonderful.
I will make sure all my future clients know what your entire team is made of.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
You guys ROCK!

The image above is from my camera personally and are not professionally edited.  I will be certain to give credit to all the photographers that shot the lovely images once I get them in my hot little hands.  Looking forward to sharing all the lovelies with you soon.

One more thing please forgive me but I never claimed to be an expert blogger nor writer…I have recently learned that you just have to take a risk and put things out there for everyone to take in.  I know, I know but sometimes it is easier said than done.Well here it goes!  I hope you all enjoy my post. Till next time my friends.  Take care.

Let’s see what the universe gives back!
