A Note From The Couple
We asked the couple to tell us about their planning and budgeting process, and this is what they had to say:
We met online via Tinder and the fact that we are married today is a beautiful fantasy come true. When planning our wedding, we wanted to incorporate our personalities and the personality of our relationship for our big day. I (the bride) come from a big family with an Indian background, while my husband is your simple American man – but we both have big personalities that make us unique. For our wedding – the most important to us was the venue, photography/video team, DJ, and catering.
We wanted a unique venue that would transport our wedding to a different place and that’s what Sydonie Mansion did. Not only was the venue filled with so much history – it truly transported you. The architect was Mediterranean and Asian styled with sculptured gardens. Creating that Luxury Tropical Garden – many of our guests revived how they felt like they were overseas and not in Florida.
For our memories team, we selected CreatedFour out of Tampa, Florida. It was important to us to select a team who understood our needs and the vision we wanted to capture. Their team was a dream to work with! They were organized and such amazing experts at their crafts.
Our guests love a good time and we needed a wedding entertainer who was going to set the energy flow to 100 from the ceremony and throughout the reception. We got exactly that from Darryl J! He is the #1 Ultimate Wedding Entertainer in Orlando. You get professionalism, an expert, and the best MC for your big day. After our wedding, he was 5 starred by all our guests! He engaged with the crowd and his mixes are A+.
We wanted to provide an amazing buffet experience for our guests. Pisces Rising is a restaurant in the historic Mount Dora that provides Southern styled dishes with a focus on using fresh, local ingredients. We had a craving station, sides, delicious apps, and so much more.
Lastly, our best two additional vendors starting with our Florist – Francessa — Owner of Goldies Flower Truck and our Wedding Coordinators – Karen and Jeannie – Owners of Truly Yours Coordinator. Francessa was a beautiful soul to work with! She took our vision and made it come to life beyond our imagination. Karen and Jeannie were the dream team that each bride deserves to have for their wedding day!
Overall, we are thankful for all our vendors for making one of the best days of our lives such a memorable one!
