UF Hilton Jen and Heibe Wedding

September 13, 2013

We ADORE working with the staff at the UF Hilton on many events.  Recently, we worked on a wedding for one of our clients, Jen and Heibe, who had a beautiful Ceremony and Reception inside the Hilton ballroom.

With just 4 months of Planning, we were able to work with bride and groom (and mother of the bride) to create a beautiful day that they would remember.  With a few details such as, the grooms family traveling from Africa, groomsmen driving from Miami the morning of the wedding, two ceremonies, two full rooms of setup… there wasn’t any time to waste.  With an amazing team of vendors on board, we didn’t have a worry.  Each vendor pulled together an amazing day!

Congratulations to Jen and Heibe!!  Many Blessings!

All though they are not all in this photo, a huge thank you to my ADORE Events team for working the Check-in, setup and cleanup through out the night!

Spa Royale

Thank you to all of the guest and sponsors who came out to support Spa Royale.  We were thrilled to meet you all and help to Celebrate an amazing new location!

As we Coordinate the big wedding day there are other fun things that lead up to the main event!   We recommend to keep the planning fun with your family and wedding party.  A great way to take a break from the stress is to relax at Spa Royale.

Spa Royale is designed in a way that takes you out of whatever you are dealing with in your day, and in to an environment that only allows you to fully RELAX.  They offer many services that allow you to feel like you are being pampered, but that you are truly receiving a treatment that is good for the relaxation of your planning process.

A great way to visit would be to take an afternoon to yourself as a bride to rejuvenate, spend the day at the spa with your mom or Maid of Honor, or even try a couples massage for your groom to be.  Any service you choose, Spa Royale is the best Day Spa in Gainesville Fl.
