Enjoy the Life You Were Born To Live

Is that a cliché’ to say live a healthy life, eat healthy and everything will be right with the world?   We would all like to think that, but we  know that things happen and in a spur of a moment, our lives change.  At our Association of Bridal Consultants Meeting this past April, we had two speakers, Judith Topper, healthy living speaker and Alayne Gatto, Certified Nutritionist.  Judith shared with the wedding planners and wedding professionals about healthy eating for our busy lives.  We are all guilty as wedding professionals of eating at our desks, grabbing fast food in between client meetings and the worse one of all, skipping meals.  Judith showed us through proper planning of our meals how we can maintain our health (and figures!).

Alayne Gatto, brought us some education on pregnancy for the pregnant professionals. But she also brought us information on how babies born too soon can affect our lives as well as the babies.  This month the Association of Bridal Consultants invited The Gift of Life, a local non-profit organization that supports parents of premature babies and babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.  The takeaway from this part of the meeting as wedding professionals, all lives matter, because that very premature baby can be our client and prematurity can affect anyone, even a wedding professional.  Tying that back to taking care of our health so that we can be as healthy as can be during the pregnancy for the things that we can control,   for example, proper sleep, nutrition, and exercise will help us be the best we can be during this stage.

Listen to both of these speakers as they give you a glimpse in to their topics!

 

When coordinating this meeting, we had to take in to account the topic of healthy eating.  The Chef at the Sheraton, knew exactly what to make so that we were eating a healthy lunch ad dessert of fresh fruit for our day.

Thank you to our Wedding professionals on this day:

ABC Meeting Design Concepts for Your Weddings and Events

The planners at the Association of Bridal Consultants want to be at the forefront of education at all times so they can have fresh new ideas for their clients.  What better way to stay ahead of the game than to have a meeting in one of the largest warehouses there is in Central Florida;  A Chair Affair where they have every imaginable chair, charger, cake stand and so much more! But you can’t leave out the linens, color and texture combined with the accessories to make a tablescape gorgeous on your event day.  Jennifer from Over the Top Linens had a fabulous presentation that included show and tell for all the planners and designers present that day.

Jennifer spoke about the Five Fabulous Design Tips:

  1. Keep your key words in mind
  2. Have faith that all your efforts will be worth it and you selected the right vendors
  3. Share something personal and unique
  4. Tell the story
  5. Prioritize what is important and keep the look consistent
  6. Be a dream team, but remember the bride(client) is the BOSS!

Jennifer touched on the trends that we are seeing in 2016:

  1. Going glam
  2. Shades of treasure
  3. Dramatic fashion
  4. Geometric patterns
  5. Exotic elegance
  6. Simple photography
  7. Tourist for a day

See the pictures of some of the designs created right there at A Chair Affair with Jennifer from Over the Top Linens and Sharon from A  Chair Affair. Tracey from Enchanting Events tied all of the information together and took us to the planner’s favorite moment when she gets to put the design ideas  together with the client’s vision for the presentation to the client of what is “THE VISION” the moment that a bride awaits to see her dream wedding come true!

We all enjoyed a great Italian buffet dinner from Del Dio’s Restaurant on the beautiful china from A Chair Affair.  Following our presentation, came the dessert reveal, WOW! Bedazzle your eyes  with cake and desserts from Cut the Cake and Macaroons from the Macaroon Place!

Despite the torrential downpour that evening, nothing could keep the planners from attending this fabulous event that would enrich the lives of their future clients. Planners are like the mail carriers, neither rain, sleet or snow will keep them away from learning and planning your beautiful event.  It’s a good thing we just deal with heat and hurricanes in Florida!

Planning A Tented Wedding

Planning a tented wedding takes a lot of planning for sure.  Susan Southerland of Just Marry and Darrin Shiffril of Orlando Party Rentals shared their best practices with the wedding professionals at the Association of Bridal Consultants meeting at the quaint Celebration Golf Club, in beautiful Celebration, FL.

0006_GAL_8309

 

First of all to plan a tent wedding there are many considerations to think about, per Susan and Darrin, location, location , location! The weather, feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!! Yes, you will be if the correct amount of air conditioning is not reserved in the tent. Clear tents are trending with up lights to enhance the look.

0054_SY5_3079

Planning a tent wedding is costly, but when hiring the correct wedding specialists, they will walk you through every step that you need to be in compliance with permits, noise ordinance and decor to enhance the tent.

0135_SY5_3131

On May 21,  Celebration Golf decided to see just what we could do with a tent, so to plan we went with the help of many wedding professionals………….

0164_SY5_3141 0124_GAL_8545 0125_GAL_8550 0126_GAL_8551 0143_GAL_8565

 

Now for The Association of Bridal Consultants, the evening started with a signature drink of white refreshing sangria to cool everyone off from the hot spring evening in Florida.  They had Passed Hors d’ oeuvres of Cold Smoked Shrimp Mousse on a Garlic Crostini and Minced Blackened Beef Tenderloin drizzled with Cajun Aioli.

0084_GAL_8473 0090_SY5_3095

0079_GAL_8461 0080_GAL_8464

 

As the wedding professionals milled around they were able to see the beautiful grounds at Celebration Golf.  There are a few sites for doing their ceremonies.

0008_GAL_8325 0011_SY5_3048 0013_GAL_8335

 

Some couples want the beauty of the outdoors,  but at the same time want to enjoy the coolness of the indoors, so the best way to satisfy that is a clear tent as provided by Darrin from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals.  Darrin educated the planners on knowing the best times to use tents, types of tents and when air conditioning is needed vs heat and how to best cool the tent down. Look also at the beautiful chivari chairs provided here by Chair Affair, a perfect match for the outdoor garden theme.

0053_SY5_3078

 

Today we looked at a clear  tent open to air with beautiful up lighting for an evening of dancing under the stars.

0209_GAL_8704 0212_GAL_8709

As the tour ended it was time to go inside the quaint ballroom perfect for a Southern or beach themed wedding.  The wedding professionals came in to the ballroom and were serenaded by music from White Rose Entertainment!  Their amber lights brought a nice warmth to the ballroom and the perimeters of the property.

Now one thing we want to point out, did you see the mismatched china from A Chair Affair?  This really set the tone for the evening, letting you know that you were going to be dining in style in all of the southern charm that Celebration Golf could provide.  What better way! And top that with some iced tea, you knew on this day that you were in the South! 0111_SY5_3111

0159_SY5_3140

Susan Southerland of Just Marry and Darrin Shiffrel of Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals educated the wedding professionals on all the ABC’s of planning a wedding or event in a tent.  So many things that have to be well thought of when planning a wedding or event in a tent.  Many people think it is a piece of cake, but as the professionals learned that night, planning a tent event, is strictly an event that to make it a success you need professionals to execute it.  The dynamic entertaining duo brought us stories of success, stories of nightmares they have heard of , how to plan these events, costs, permissions and so much more!

0132_SY5_3128 0137_SY5_3132 0138_GAL_8560 0141_GAL_8563

We had a visit from our state coordinator Carmen Mesa from South Florida.  It is always a treat to get to hear what is happening at ABC on a bigger scale than what we here monthly at our meetings.  Carmen was able to touch on the many benefits of becoming an ABC member, what happens at our state conference and our national conference.  Carmen encouraged everyone to contact anyone of the co-directors for membership information.

0115_SY5_3114 0181_SY5_3156 0186_GAL_8668 0187_GAL_8669

The sunset came shortly after as we were able to view it right through the picturesque windows in the ballroom.  This led straight to dessert time to the tunes of BB Kings, playing those jazz blues as we watched the chef attended bananas fosters a la mode station.

As a special treat pastry chef Lucy Martin of Soffelle Confections, tempted us with some gourmet cupcakes to take home in our little bags of treats!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!! Love Sacrifices All Except Love Itself!!

By now everyone has received their sweetie’s Valentine’s Cards, gifts, hugs and kisses…Now it is time to wind down and share in our last Valentine series …..The Love of Vikki and Chip…..27 Miracles writes a lot of wedding and engagement blogs…..but sit back and read this couples story of sacrifice, love and committment….

When Vikki and Chip planned their wedding day, they planned it based on their school schedule. They started working with Master Bridal Consultant, Rosie Moore to plan this beautiful event back in the summer of 2013 when they were both off from school.  The date was set 12/13/14.  That summer they looked at over 15 venues in a span of a few days and ended up picking the place where Chip proposed to Vikki, The Beautiful Wyndham Orlando.

Everything was set.  The following summer they did tastings, floral samples, finalizing the wedding and the honeymoon.  Then came the bad news, the wedding may be off!! What? Why?  Vikki is a graduate student as a Pharmacist and school  decided that they will not end until 12/18/14 and she will have a final exam on 12/13/14 and another on 12/15/14.  As much as she tried they would not allow her to take the exam early. Vikki contacted Rosie with the dilemma and what can we do.   Planner Rosie Moore, said give her a day to think about things.  Then it was set, the honeymoon was postponed until the summer,we will get everything done for the wedding earlier,  as far as preparations.  The bride would have a friend drive her to school the morning of the test and when she arrived back, hair and make up would be there ready and waiting for her.

Vikki was up early and out for her final exam, first of many after studying all night the day before after rehearsal.  When she came back, we were all set….Everyone was ready for Vikki….Vikki was smiling and ready to get married.

Love at Christmas Time

Merry Christmas to all.  We hope that everyone had a wonderful time with their friends and families! Today’s blog is about Ursula and Robert, a couple in love.  Ursula and Robert met in their complex at the gym.  Each time they were out and about their complex, they kept bumping into each other and it was love at first sight! They started dating and the rest is history!!! Robert being the romantic that he is got down on one knee and proposed to Ursula!

Proposal

The happy couple had great plans to have a large wedding, but instead decided that they would have a more intimate and romantic wedding and focus on their new home and their new baby on the way.  Although some folks could not attend this week day ceremony,  the intimacy of the wedding size, was what they both wanted.

Ursula dreamed of a wedding in the park, not an easy task when it’s a park and there is not a true back up for rain.  But the planning went on at Kissimmee Lake Front.  Let’s watch as this day unfolds.

The wedding day arrived!! It was a hot Friday Morning in October. Upper 80’s, sunny but humid and hot! Southern Elegance Limousine started the morning off with picking up our beautiful Bride Ursula at her home to bring her to the ceremony.  The groom Robert and his  best man arrived first.

Ursula and Robert’s family planned a picnic luncheon in the park for the happy couple but one of the things that Ursula and Robert would miss on was their first cake cutting and toast.  We could not let that happen, so a cake from Publix  came to the rescue as  Michael Anthony Photography captured this sweet and fun moment.

Support Breast Cancer and Leave a Legacy

You may be wondering how can I support Breast Cancer and leave a legacy?  27 Miracles got involved with supporting breast cancer organizations back in 2008 as it was something that they believed in supporting.  It became a reality when Adriana, friend or Wedding Planner Rosie Moore, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.  The battle was not an easy one for Adriana as she continued to work and maintain an “as normal life” for her baby boy.  She always had a smile on her face and looking to see  how she could help others.  One of the things that Adriana always said, was that she wanted to leave a legacy for all to remember her, especially her baby boy.  In February 2010, Adriana lost the battle with breast cancer but she left her legacy behind.  To all women, get help. mammogram screenings and make memories with your family and capture them.

On the same note, another friend of Rosie’s, Barbie, was also going through the same battle, breast cancer .  Barbie tells her story of how she almost cancelled her mammogram because she was too busy preparing for her trip to Alaska and just busyness with the kids.  She went to her mammogram only to find that she had a very advanced breast cancer diagnosis.  Life changed drastically as it does for all who is diagnosed.Cancer does not ask permission to come if it is the right time or not, it just shows up.  After intense chemo and radiation, Barbie beat the cancer, today she is a 5 year survivor!!

Today organizations like Susan G Komen, help women obtain mammograms and to be educated on breast cancer.

“Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and commitment to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer.

Though Susan lost her battle with the disease, her legacy lives on through the work of Susan G. Komen, the organization Nancy started in her honor.”

Today 27 Miracles asks you to do a few things:

-Check your breast doing self exams every month

-get your mammograms

-If you got married and you still have your gown sitting in your closet and you are not preserving it or selling it, consider donating it so that it can be sold to another bride and 100% of the donations goes directly to Komen to fight breast cancer

-If you are a bride and have not purchased your gown, consider purchasing a gown through 27 Miracles and your purchase will be helping to make a difference.

Here are some samples of gowns, they are all clean and ready for purchase.

Spotlight on a Vendor…Treasured Moments Videography

Have you been to our website  http://www.27miraclesbyrosie.com if you haven’t been there check it out?  You might say why do you want me to go there now?  That is because there on our video gallery you will see Bruce Reynolds from Treasured Moments work!  Treasured Moments Videography is well-known in the community of Orlando. BruceReynolds

They have been shooting all events for the last 6 years in widescreen HD. One of the 1st in Central Florida to film in high-definition, as they feel it captures the event in the best quality for the future. Clients then can choose widescreen DVDs, or Blu Ray HD dvds. When you book them you get them not contractors who shoot for others. They only do 1 event per day in order to give their clients what they expect.

When 27 Miracles asked Treasured Moments owner Bruce Reynolds, why help The Gift of Life, he said, “I am honored to be part of The Gift of Life on September 13, 2014 at the Rosen Centre Hotel. It’s a very worthy event for all in the Orlando area to attend and give support to Florida Hospital’s NICU for their ongoing work with premature newborns and the making of the movie “A Story of Faith”  to further help the families of those children and future children who are born prematurely.”  

Get in on the action that day and be filmed at the event enjoying what promises to be a spectacular night of fun, while at the same time helping to raise awareness and resources for a community of miracles…

Florida Hospital did an interview with Kaleb and some of his caregivers….watch as he reunites with them…..
