Married : Karin + Ethan

Words cannot describe how much I ADORED this couple. Karin + Ethan are a beautiful couple, inside + out. Their wedding definitely did not turn out the way they had originally imagined. The rain fell (a lot), the wind blew (a lot) + their once outdoor wedding at the Cypress Grove Estate House had to be moved into a much smaller space indoors. As you can imagine, after spending over a year envisioning your wedding one day + having everything change in a matter of minutes can be very overwhelming for a lovely bride like Karin. All she wanted was to see her groom, so, out came an impromptu first-look. This was one of the most special moments I have ever witnessed at a wedding. As soon as these two saw each other the smiles appeared + I don't think they left for the remainder of the night. It's moments like these that remind you the true meaning of a wedding + it's couple like Karin + Ethan that remind me what an amazing job I have!

 Karin's review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
When my husband, mother, and I first met with At Last we knew right away they were the team we wanted for our wedding day. They put us at ease and understood our vision. Amanda was so helpful in every step of the wedding planning process. Meeting with her two weeks before our wedding calmed my nervous completely. There was no doubt that she was organized and prepared. This proved to be true on our wedding day. An hour before the wedding was supposed to start, it started to storm and our plan was to have an outdoor wedding. In an hour, most of our plans had to change and At Last managed it so well. Amanda handled it with poise and kindness. She interacted wonderfully with our guests, a lot of them commented on how impressed they were with her. Trust me, you want At Last coordinating your wedding day!

Married : Sandy + Mauricio

Sandy and Mauricio said "I do" this past May + it was a beautiful celebration! We had a great time working with this couple + their family. It was a stunning family affair + heartwarming to see all the love + joy surrounding Sandy + Mauricio on their big day. The reception took place at Ceviche in Downtown Orlando, which was the perfect location for their Spanish themed wedding. My favorite part of the reception would have to be their first dance! They had a wonderfully choreographed dance that quickly got their guests up on the dance floor. It was a specular night!

Married : Carly + Marshall

I had the complete honor of meeting Carly + Marshall a year + a half before their wedding day + I'm so glad that I did! They have been such a joy to be around + it makes my job so enjoyable when I get to work with such a sweet + loving couple like them. They were so easy-going to work with through their entire planning, which made it even better on the wedding day, especially when mother nature decided it was time to let off some steam + rain! Regardless, it didn't even phase Carly + Marshall who knew that either way... they were getting married! Even with a bit of showers, that didn't stop this amazing crowd from celebrating with our fabulous couple!

 Carly's review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
Jaclyn and At Last were the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. She was amazing since day one. We hired her a year and a half before our wedding and she kept in touch the whole time even though there wasn't much to do early on. Her checklists are great and she is extremely quick with her responses on email! She will answer any question who have and even research things for you. She made sure on our wedding day that we were prepared with every detail and did not skip on anything. Even when it rained on our day, she swiftly coordinated everything to go inside and kept everything going as if there was no change. She made sure all events went on as planned and we had a wonderful time! I have recommended her to all my engaged friends.
