Adore Events - Gainesville Wedding Planner

May 14, 2010

This week's featured vendor is the charming Amy Keene of Adore Events!  Adore is one of the premier wedding and event planning companies in Gainesville and we are delighted to work with Amy and her staff at every opportunity.  

A few words from Amy about her company and her sweet self:

I am "Head over Heels" about planning! Although Adore Events was established last year, I have been in the professional event industry for over 10 years. Starting in the catering and service field, learning more about floral, overall design and other details about events I realized that Event Management was my specialty. Working in the 'arts' is where I began to notice that the directing role of producing an event took attention to detail, creative control and patience. I knew the next step was Wedding Planning and Coordinating. I have been planning events as long as I can remember. I love to see the joy on a brides face at the end of her long day and knowing that she was able to "be the bride" because I was there to take care of the details for her.

Working with people is my passion. I love meeting and working with new clients who are excited about their big day! I love planning and the process of helping my brides get to the day they've always imagined. My specialty is organizing your wedding day to a custom timeline that allows your vendors to feel at ease knowing the day will run smoothly and they can do their job and it allows you to focus on your groom, family and guests.

When I'm not planning, I love spending time with my husband and taking "spur of the moment" trips. BRAVO tv is my secret late night indulgence and shih-tzu dogs are the best!

Why the heels? Because I love them! And it's so fun to have some sassy heels on your wedding day! Secret: Be You! Pick a heel color that matches your wedding colors, not your dress!

- Amy

Featured Vendor: The LV Studio

April 29, 2010

We are so proud to tell our friends and clients about Leslie Vega of The LV Studio (soon to be something bigger better and I'm sure wonderfully chic- so look out for it).

She is a former-client, friend, employee and a consummate professional of the graphic arts. Her experience in all aspects of design, including extensive work with wedding professionals has made her a sought after brand designer within the industry, as well as for clients of discerning tastes.

When she isn't obsessing over the perfect paper and creating, she can be found caring for her sweet daughter Nadia, relaxing with her husband Jose, singing and sitting of her comfy couch with a yummy bowl of watermelon  (off-the-record I hear she is also a Zumba dynamo).

If you'd like the chance to see and feel samples of her lovely work... and sample some of the yummiest custom sweets and cakes around, be sure to RSVP for "Paper and Sweets" on May 20th at Masterpiece Weddings in Gainesville.  

It's also a veritable who's who of wedding goodness to feast your eyes and tummies on so email or call Leslie today!

Here are a few favorite images from our recent photo session with Leslie! Lovely inside and out.

April 15, 2010

Most of all, though, we believe in the people that run Sweetwater. They are dedicated, enjoy a good laugh, southern hospitality and making folks smile.

We're not just wedding vendors recommending the Sweetwater Brach Inn; we've been guests...and we live in town!

Featured Vendor: KB Kakes

April 1, 2010
They always smell like sugar, spice and everything nice...and with good reason. The baker-istas at KB Kakes, Kathy and Erika surround their lives with sweetness.

If you've ever had the joy of meeting Kathy, you know she's a ball of energy with hugs way stronger than a woman her size should rightly possess. And if you are have been lucky enough to commission a cake or be a guest of someone who has you know that her cakes are simply amazing inside and out!

But most of all we are happy to refer KB Kakes because they represent the finest quality service and artistry. It also helps that they have a ripping-good sense of humor.

You can have a little taste anytime with her signature "Kake Truffles." They are utterly sinful little pleasures in an wide assortment of flavors like, Espresso, Pumpkin Spice, Wedding Cake, German Chocolate and Red Velvet. They can even design signature truffles with fillings and decoration to match your event! Many are available at Dorn's Fine Wines, in Thornbrook Village, and Mario's Bistro, in downtown Gainesville

Please enjoy a few frames from their recent website fashion shoot.

A note from Kathy:

I love people!!!! When I meet with a couple about there cake I see them first. I try to listen to their words as well as their hearts...and that's when the cake comes to life! I want the cake to be a WOW moment on the biggest day of their lives! And what an honor it is to be chosen to be a part of that day!!!!

Sweet Regards,
A big thank you to our models, and real KB Kakes couple, Amy and Kyle.
