Married : Lisa + Mark

Lisa, Mark + 60 of their closest friends + family recently celebrated their love at the Naples Bay Resort Yacht Club + we were thrilled to be involved. I can say with 100% certainty that this group sure had fun! Market lights, unique lampshade centerpieces, a late night pizza snack + monogrammed Orea favors are just a few of my favorite details from this gorgeous wedding! Lisa + Mark were an absolute delight to work with + I am so excited to share these pictures from their wedding with you!

We hired Amanda with At Last Wedding & Event Design to help us coordinate the final details of our destination wedding in Naples. From our first conversation she was extremely helpful. She definitely put my mind at ease. Nothing was overlooked and she assured us everything was being taken care of...and it was. Since we couldn't meet prior to the rehearsal, she skyped with us ensuring she understood exactly what we wanted. She then put together a detailed timeline that she provided for us and our vendors to follow - huge help! She did a beautiful job putting together our welcome baskets and delivering them to the hotel. She arrived early at the church for the rehearsal and made sure everyone knew what their role. The day of the wedding I didn't have to worry whether or not everything was where it was supposed to be, or when it was supposed to be there. Amanda was on top of it all. She worked with our vendors to make sure everything ran on time and smoothly, while remaining in the background the whole night. This allowed me to actually enjoy the day. At the end of the night, she collected all of our belongings and gifts and delivered them to our room. She was pleasant to work with throughout the entire process and very professional. I would highly recommend her for any event in the Naples area!!

Married : Amanda + Graham

When I originally met with Amanda many months ago, she explained how she wanted her reception completely candlelit + romantic- I totally understood her wedding vision + couldn't wait to implement everything! Her tables were completely full of {wouldn't you guess!}... candles. In fact, it was like we created a complete table runner of various candles, leaving the entire space at the Orlando Museum of Art soft + romantic, which radiated beautifully- check out the reception photos below!

Amanda + Graham: Our entire team wishes you both the happiest marriage! We were so thrilled to be a part of your big {spectacular} day!

Amanda's Review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
I can't provide enough positive feedback about our experience working with Jaclyn + At Last! Jaclyn and I had a telephone conference when I was interviewing planners, and I instantly connected with her. She was very accommodating and created a package for us that fit both our needs and our budget. Jaclyn provided recommendations for the few vendors we had not yet settled on, and was extremely responsive to emails in the months leading up to the wedding. Jaclyn provided us with worksheets to fill out a couple of months ahead of the wedding, which was a huge help - it forced us to tie up all of the loose ends and included a lot of logistical information we never would have considered! Jaclyn met with us at our venue five weeks prior to the wedding for a walk-though and face-to-face meeting. My parents were so impressed with her that they extended our package with her. Leading up to the event, Jaclyn was in regular communication with us, and I received comments from several vendors that she was "on her game" and great to work with. Jaclyn handled the rehearsal and wedding perfectly - if there were any problems, we didn't know about them, which was exactly what we wanted. Jaclyn and her team did a wonderful job executing our vision. We and our guests had a wonderful time, and we have At Last to thank! I highly recommend Jaclyn and her team - you will not be disappointed!
