Paradise Cove happens to be one of Nicole Squared Events absolute favorite Orlando Wedding venues because it incorporates everything Florida has to offer. Paradise Cove is the only venue that offers a “beach” feel without actually being on the beach. Did I mention that the groom and groomsmen can also have a “James Bond” style entrance by allowing the groom and his groomsman to enter their Ceremony on a speed boat?! I mean, come on; how cool is that?!
Sharon and Jerad’s wedding will go down as one of Nicole Squared Events favorites of all time. It is memorable as a planner to have a bride that is as sweet as Sharon and simply a joy to work with. Claire Pacelli Photography captured this bride and grooms first look. I won’t lie. I used to not be in favor of the first look but I think after this wedding not only did I realize how wonderful it was to get a lot of the pre-ceremony photos out of the way but how adorable it is for the bride and groom to see each other, alone for this first time, and have it all captured in photographs.
Sharon looked absolutely stunning for her big day. LeJeune Hair and Makeup Artistry did a wonderful job for an already beautiful bride. Sharon glowed from the second I saw her and they not only did an amazing job with hair and makeup for the bride but all of her beautiful bridesmaids! Ladies, you deserve to get pampered on your big day and LeJeune Hair and Makeup Artistry knows how to make every bride feel like a million bucks.
After a beautiful Ceremony officiated by the one and only, Kevin Knox, with A Beautiful Ceremony, cocktail hour began with a steel drum provided by Cocoa Bean Productions. What a perfect fit for this venue. Puff `n Stuff Catering offered butler passed hors d’oeuvres and an open bar at the venue’s pre-existing Tiki Bar including a Chef Attended Quesadilla Station. Yum!!!
All floral was set by the talented team of Lee Forrest Design. The colors included ivory, peach and light green. The centerpieces were accented by the market lights that accent the Reception area at Paradise Cove. Just one of the many reasons I love this venue. Brides are always looking for market lights and guess what ladies; Paradise Cove has them!
Soundwave Entertainment started the night with “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the couples first dance and even though it was a little chilly outside, all guests put on their shawls and jackets and danced, danced, danced! Puff `n Stuff Catering provided the delicious food and let me tell you; service and food was on point. Not a hungry guest in sight!
The guests would go back and forth from the dance floor to the photo booth provided by Our Photo Booth Rocks. Photo Booths are such a great wedding addition. It gives the guests something fun to do as well as a take home so they can remember the night too! Our Photo Booth Rocks offers an amazingly stylish booth and cute little plastic photo frames for every guest to take home. Great idea for favors!
Weddings are so unique to each couple and Sharon and Jared’s big day was just PERFECTION. As it was time to go, Paradise Cove got their speed boat ready and Bride and Groom jumped in and departed as guests waved goodbye on the sandy beach. What a departure! Nicole Squared Events couldn’t have been more blessed than to be a part of such a magical evening.Thank to Claire Pacelli Photography for all of the amazing photos!
