Married : Erica + Scott

You may have to sit down for this one because the beauty of Erica + Scott's wedding day will knock you off your feet! Erica + Scott tied the knot at the always beautiful LaPlaya Beach Resort. You can't beat a cocktail hour that's spent with sand between your toes + a sunset as the backdrop. The new Mr. + Mrs. Reynolds not only filled their day with breathtaking details, they also filled it with fun! Their chuppah decor was flawless, their driftwood centerpieces left guests speechless, the truffle mac + cheese served at dinner was a crowd favorite + their "party hour" during the reception was a hit, complete with glow sticks + "Ready to Reynolds" aviators.  Erica is such a good-hearted, sweet woman + helping her create her + Scott's dream wedding day was such a pleasure! And she made one heck of a gorgeous bride! Enjoy (+ be prepared to swoon over!) these absolutely stunning photos by Set Free Photography.

Erica's Review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
Working with Amanda and At Last was an absolute dream! I had booked all of my vendors myself (picked the venue, booked band, photographer, videographer, florist) but knew I wanted someone to help on our wedding day. I must of called 10 different "day-of" wedding planners and got more discouraged each time I spoke with one. Their pricing was outrageous and most of them had some kind of policy that only allowed communication with them a few weeks before the wedding. After finding Amanda online, and after our conversation, my hope was restored! There really was someone out there who genuinely cared about assisting on my wedding day and helping to bring my vision to life! Amanda doesn't have a policy outlining when you can talk with her even if you select to use her "day-of" services. In fact, the "day-of" option includes so much more than that! Amanda was there to meet with a couple of my vendors with me, she provided me a checklist to help throughout the entire planning process, she even told me to start e-mailing her MORE! Any time I had a question about where to find a cake stand, or where we could have our rehearsal dinner, Amanda was there giving me her advice and suggestions. The planning process was flawless with Amanda's help, and our wedding day was absolutely perfect! I provided her with A LOT of items and decor that I wanted set up throughout our venue. She took all of our items and made sure everything was placed the way I envisioned so my Mom and I could enjoy the day and not worry about setting up! Amanda even showed up several hours earlier then we agreed on my wedding day and stayed later! She checked in periodically and kept us in the loop as we got ready. Everything ran so smoothly! I highly recommend Amanda and her assistant to any bride and groom looking for a planner who is dependable, genuine, helpful and resourceful! You won't find anyone better than Amanda and the At Last Team, I PROMISE!!!!

Married : Danielle + Matt

Knowing Matt + Danielle are Jaclyn’s {owner of At Last} family I was super excited to meet them + help make their wedding vision come to life. The couple said their vows on a beautiful + sunny Friday morning at Nativity Catholic Church followed by a brunch reception at the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs.  The brunch reception details came together wonderfully with tea cups for the guest’s to take home, mimosas, a chicken + waffles station, + a live band. What more could you want as a wedding guest?! 
 As beautiful + creative as all the details were, it was obvious that Matt + Danielle's main focus were each other + their families. They were a laid back couple + truly enjoyed their special day, which is always a treat to see. The two headed off to the airport for their honeymoon to Europe {jealous!} directly from the reception. Overall, this was quite a perfect day for this fantastic couple!

 Danielle's Review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
Unless you're experienced with wedding planning, hiring a wedding planner is a wise decision to keep you focused and on-task during this months-long, or longer, process. Choosing to go with Jaclyn and her team made making the decision worth every penny. She sent monthly To-Do lists and was available to answer any questions or help with vendors. This was a big one! If you're going to use a wedding planner, get one that takes pride in their business and cultivates relationships with other wedding vendors. Being an At-Last bride comes with some very beneficial perks! 

Jaclyn was a wealth of knowledge when I was seeking advice about anything wedding related. The idea of planning such a big event can, and often is, overwhelming, but she helped to keep the list manageable and I never felt like I was drowning. 

At-Last was worth their weight in gold on the day of the wedding. Everything went seamlessly. I was confident at every turn that it was going to work out beautifully and I was able to enjoy our wedding day without any reservations. Our Day of Coordinators were fantastic and really outdid themselves from setup to cleanup.

Married : Khadija + Azeez

Khadija + Azeez’s wedding ceremony was heartwarming! With their luxurious bright wedding colors, Khadija popped out like an angel! They were able to get so many beautiful photos together after the ceremony on the stunning golf course of Mystic Dunes. Later, the newlyweds joined their family for a gorgeous reception filled with an intimate ambiance that included their friends + family that traveled all over the world! The dance floor was so innovative with today’s traditional style wedding, with a Nigerian culture twist! I am so happy that I had the honor to work for this sweetheart of a couple.

Khadija's Review of At Last Wedding + Event Design
At Last was amazing. The venue provided us with a day of coordinator and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. They kept everything running smoothly and made our day completely stress free. They are very detailed and have a true passion for the wedding business.
