Michelle & Eddie’s Glamping Wedding

Glamping has been on our wishlist for a while so when Michelle told us she was planning on a glamping wedding we knew we had to be a part of it! As a successful wedding baker and owner of Bakers Cottage Cakes, Michelle has seen many gorgeous venues in the Orlando area, but when she and Eddie decided to get married they knew they wanted to create an authentic celebration that brought together all of their family and friends around something they love: camping!

Michelle and Eddie’s wedding day was a dream collaboration between some of Central Florida’s best vendors:

Brides Who Brunch

I have to start this post by saying this gorgeous day would not have been possible without a huge list of vendors who participated in our first ever Brides Who Brunch event! This was a collaboration between sassy a la mode and four amazing wedding planners: Melanie of Melanie Paige Events & Design Jackie of Sincerely Yours Weddings & Events , Julie of Julie Miner Events and Kayla of Kayla Huston Events.

We came up with a great idea but the vendors who came on board played a huge role in creating  an unforgettable day for brides in Brevard! We are especially grateful to Harmony Lynn Photography who took all of these gorgeous photos! The beautiful Banyan Estate was the obvious choice for our first event. The venue has three gorgeous spaces that allowed us to create separate experiences for our brides in each room. We can’t thank them enough for playing host, they were a dream to work with!

When brides arrived they checked in and enjoyed an amazing brunch selection by Executive Catering. The first room also included calligraphy by Andi Mejia, a tropical photo booth set up by our sister company, Sassy Photobooth, and a gorgeous sweetheart table styled by Z Create Design. Z Create Design also made the adorable tote bags each guest received!

Then it was off to the second room for the Planner Q&A. We answered questions, gave tips, and had one on ones in our planner lounges designed by Crystal and Crates. We loved getting to share our advice and were thrilled with the amazing crowd of brides we had. Major shout out to DJ Shane who kept the crowd pumped up and shared some advice from his 20+ years of experience serving brides all over Florida!

The final adventure was upstairs for the live demonstrations. Brides entered to the sounds of The Moore Brothers. They got to taste sweet treats from Cake Krush, and view amazing stationery from After a While Crocodile and Andi Mejia. Beauty experts, In2YourBeauty, Bella Chic Beauty, and Styling by Ashley Rae all showed off some of their signature services. Olivia Bowen Bridal and her gorgeous models showcased some of her newest styles. Buds Etc designed the most gorgeous arrangement and floral crowns for the event, and Z Create Design created a fun interactive styling station.

Our goal was to create a unique, interactive experience for modern brides and we succeeded! We’re already hard at work on the next event! Watch this space!
