We actually did not have any weddings this weekend so we had a little break - however we were still packed with appointments which can be just as fun! :) We met with some of our wonderful couples -- seriously we get to plan weddings for the nicest people, we are so lucky! Friday, Saturday and Sunday were filled with vendor appointments and meetings.

Earlier this week, Beth met one of our brides at Jackson's on Harbour Island which is where I had my rehearsal dinner - it's one of my favorite places! The waterfront room is the perfect place for an intimate gathering overlooking the water and lights of downtown. The bride came down to Florida all the way from NYC! It was great to see her and work on some wedding details with her in person since it's mostly being done long distance.

Island Way Grill is the venue for one of our couples who are planning from out of town, and it was really exciting to take them there on Saturday because they booked it from NC and this was the first time they got to see it in person. IWG is a gorgeous venue though so there really was nothing to worry about, and their restaurant event manager is great to work with. I feel like it's kind of a hidden gem in Clearwater since so many people immediately think of the beach, but IWG still has that beachy feel and is waterfront too!

Sunday we met with another great couple who we are doing full planning for and we got cracking right away checking out some area churches and getting ideas on reception venues. I had to share this photo I snapped at Christ the King Church in South Tampa.. I don't know why but I'm obsessed with this walkway. I love the vines creeping up the columns.. what a great photo spot!

Anyway we are getting tons of business handled on this little break we have had because February and March are going to be full of weddings! We do a good job of balancing the amount of weddings we take on in order to still give our clients as much attention as they need. Next week we have some more meetings and we were invited to a special tasting at a catering restaurant for wedding coordinators - free food, YESSS. Hope everyone had a great weekend :)
