Last month Simply Divine Events had the unique opportunity to co-produce, alongside Sean De Freitas, one of the off-site events for the 2012 Special Event Conference- The Wedding Event! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work on an event of this magnitude, showcasing the newest trends and educating industry peers.
The event was held in the Exp Hall of The Florida State Fairgrounds. Our team of vendors loaded in and began to construct the event space on Monday morning. The event was held on that Thursday evening. The theme of the event was “Journey to Love”. Award winning film maker, Brett Culp
, followed our team around and filmed the behind the scenes planning process- telling a story of our “journey” in producing The Wedding Event.
The theme of the event was built around four different looks. The looks were Modern Organic, Earthy Glitz, Country Chic, and Moroccan Vintage. In the cocktail area, Anglo Couture provided four brides and gowns where a vignette was designed around the look of each bride.
The main focal point and entertainment of the cocktail room was an opera singer in an eighty foot red dress, designed by Designs by Sean, singing beautiful love songs.
As the singer’s performance came to an end, pyro fireworks went off behind her and the four fabric doors dropped to the floor and guests entered into the main ballroom for dinner and the presentation. The room was broken up into the four distinct looks.
Please take a look of some of the photos from the event.
