See Flaire on Southern Weddings!

I am so excited that my button ad for Southern Weddings is finally live on their blog!

I chose this image from McRae and Thomas's super southern wedding in Amelia Island!

I love Thomas's seersucker suit in this picture, how happy they both look, and of course our beautiful Florida marsh in the background! The beautiful image was taken by Kara Pennington, who sadly for us Florida folks, lives in Alaska now!! :)

So excited! :)

Paper Straws are here!!

As you may know, last fall my mom and I opened up a gift shop here in Jacksonville called Flaire Celebrations.

It has taken quite a while, but I am finally getting around to updating our website with all of the products we have in stock. I am not even halfway finished, but this weekend I did get our paper straws all loaded on to the site!!

Right now we have 8 colors available, but if you're looking for something different, let us know and we can special order it for you!

To view the entire collection, please visit us at the Flaire Celebrations website!

Jacksonville Wedding Lighting -- Uplighting, Gobos, and More!

I worked with a lovely bride named Dide this past spring to provide uplighting and a custom monogram gobo for her wedding at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. Dide wanted purple uplighting and a gobo featuring the couple's initials.

She recently sent me some pictures from the event, and everything was stunning!

These fantastic images were provided by Lindsey Tropf of Pure Photography. Lighting is an affordable way to add instant elegance to your event! We have several fall dates open -- shoot me an email if you're interested in lighting for your own wedding!

Congrats Dide and EJ! I'm glad we were able to provide the beautiful lighting for your reception!
