Heaven in Orlando – The Family That Plays Together Stays Together

heaven

At Heaven Event Venue we try to exercise whenever we can find the time. Florida weather often makes it challenging to get outside, especially during the warmer months; and let’s face it, that is about 9 months out of the year! Teambuilding is a very important part of our heavenly lifestyle. Some of the key benefits to teambuilding are getting to know one another better, celebrating team spirit and boosting employee morale. What is more motivating than collaborating to foster creativity in the workplace? To keep up with your heavenly events, the team at heaven event venue works hard and pushes each other to greatness, which is why at our last team building event, we decided to sweat together. When you work in creative environment, it isn’t difficult to find a fun ways of exercising. And that is just what Jennifer, Eman and Michael did when they ventured to Winter Park Cycle Bar!

For those of you who are not familiar with Winter Park Cycle Bar, their rides give you a rigorous cardio experience offering a full body workout! When we asked Jennifer, Eman and Michael how they felt about their experience, they stated “We absolutely loved it!” Communication is key in order for team members to work better together. There are so many ways to incorporate team building into every aspect of your life. What are the different ways you foster team building in your work environment?

My Choice is Heaven

heqaven-event-venue-something-blue

Meredith Farmer came by and chatted with the team of Heaven Event Venue located in Orlando, Florida. This wife, mother, coffee addict and owner of Something Blue shared with us why her choice is Heaven Event Venue.

When I was a little girl I planned everything to the smallest detail. It became clear as I grew up that I was meant to help couples get married. My job is to make sure you enjoy your day and that it’s stress-free and I couldn’t be happier doing anything else. I have a bachelor’s degree in Event Management from UCF and I’ve been helping Brides and Grooms get married for over four years. When I’m not planning fabulous weddings you’ll find me in my kitchen baking something pumpkin or out in my garden trying not to kill all my plants.

Why Heaven Event Venue?

Heaven will always have a special place in my heart as I spent the beginning years of my event career working there. The space provides such a beautiful canvas for any event with endless possibilities.

What Makes it special?

The flexibility and freedom to choose your own vendors is something you can’t find at every venue. To not be restricted is a great way to ensure your event truly reflects you and your story.

What was your favorite event you produced here?

Jaime and William’s wedding in 2013. They transformed what is considered a very modern space into their version of Tuscany which not everyone would have thought possible, but it turned out beautiful. From the terracotta lighting to the hanging baskets of flowers it couldn’t have been more perfect.

What is one tip that you would give a bride seeking a venue space in Central Florida?

Don’t settle. With so many wonderful options in the Central Florida area there is no reason that you shouldn’t be head over heels in love with your choice.

With so many special products that are included, what is your personal favorite and why? My personal favorite has to be the draping. It provides such an elegant feel to the venue that you would pay extra for at most other venues.

As Heaven is a blank slate, what is one outrageous themed event you would love to see in this space? I would love to see a Cinco de Mayo event. The space would be perfect for all the colorful décor and a live Mariachi band to dance the night away to.

What inspires you to do what you love to do?

I adore meeting new couples and hearing how they fell in love. What I love is helping them plan their day based on how they want their love story to be represented. When a couple tells me that they truly got to enjoy their day and not worry about a thing knowing I had it handled is the greatest feeling. Everyone deserves to know that there’s someone on their side working for them to ensure their day is perfect.

Why is Heaven your Choice?

Every couple should feel as if their wedding was a true representation of who they are. Heaven gives a gorgeous start to clients to simply add in their details for an event that their guests will never forget.

Candy Table: Florida Candy Buffets

Naim and Ameena spent their special day in Heaven on May 8, 2016. The couple utilized our main banquet hall, which displayed the most beautiful setting.

Everything from wall to wall was simply stunning. The color scheme for this wedding reception included purple, fuchsia and hints of gold. The space featured tables surrounding the room and a special place for the newlyweds to sit, which was draped with lavish colors and decor.  Occasions by Shangri-La did a great job decorating the entire space. The room was truly detailed to perfection!

We especially love this candy table by Florida Candy Buffets. This table displayed gold sequin linens, lanterns, and candles encased in our hanging glass globes.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bacchus!

Wedding Inspiration for Every Season

Whether you’re dreaming of a spring, summer, fall or winter wedding, there are endless ideas to help plan your special day. Each season has specific trends that people love to follow. If you think of spring and summer, florals and bright colors come to mind. During the fall, neutral and rustic colors are popular and during the winter, fresh white and wintery blues are often used. Although seasonal trends are obvious, there are ways to incorporate everything you’ve ever wanted for your special day, no matter what the season is.

Spring Wedding Inspiration:

Go for the bright florals or tone it down to a fresher look

Summer Wedding Inspiration:

Using light pink flowers and greenery is a great way to simplify summer shades

Fall Wedding Inspiration:

A mixture of earthy tones make the perfect fall theme come to life

Winter Wedding Inspiration:

Add a pop of color, such as red, to enhance a white wintery wedding

Jacira and Jason held their wedding day in Heaven Event Venue in Orlando. With the help of Angels Dream Events, Al Dee Productions P.S I Got This, Events by Nini we were able to create a perfect White Wintery Wedding. Our Main Banquet Hall was used and transformed into the perfect ceremony and reception spot.

Once the set up was finished, the banquet hall displayed a beautiful ceremony. Along the aisle, white tree branches, candles and snow were displayed. On both sides of the aisle, chairs were lined so guests could watch the couple say “I Do!”

Following the ceremony, the Main Banquet Hall in Heaven Event Venue was transformed into a reception area. The guest tables had navy blue and silver sequin linens. The tables also displayed tall crystal centerpieces, which held white flowers and white tree branches. This wedding was truly a winter fairytale and an unforgettable night!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Prasad!

Rose & Bryan’s modern wedding featured luxe details from start to finish. At the entrance of the reception, large white block letters spelled out LOVE topped with glass to hold place cards and decorations while our photo slideshow played in the background. Inside our Main Banquet Hall, guests were seated at clear acrylic tables lit with purple LED lighting. Our clear chiavari chairs complimented the acrylic tables allowing the tall centerpieces to take center stage.

A chic display of elevated manzanita branches entwined with orchids adorned the tables. Floral wreaths of white and purple blooms hung from the ceiling, along with our glass globes for an eye-catching display. Decor cascading down from the ceiling creates depth in larger rooms like our 7,000 sq. ft. Main Banquet Hall.

One of the most stunning details of the wedding reception was a unique candle wall display, provided by Rachael Kasie Designs, creating a soft, romantic backdrop behind Rose & Bryan’s ‘sweetheart table’. Tall floral arrangements of hydrangea, roses and orchids atop white pedestals flanked the candle wall.

We especially love the shot of Rose & Bryan’s first look! View their wedding photos captured by Castaldo Studio Heaven Event Venue Facebok Page.

Marry in Metal Showcase Gallery

We had so much fun chatting with engaged couples at our Marry in Metal Wedding Showcase! Thank you to everyone who attended and also a huge thanks to all of our participating vendors, including Party Flavors, Something Blue by Meredith and Stunning Studios who all contributed to our free wedding giveaway! Special thanks to Live Happy Studio for capturing the showcase with these beautiful photos.

One of the hottest trends for 2016 is metal – rose gold, gold and silver all play well together in this new wave of design inspiration. We wanted to bring the mixed metal theme to Heaven with our Marry in Metal Wedding Showcase. Our booth design featured mirrored panels with acrylic shelving from Max King Events and a steel teardrop sequin linen from GBS linens. We chose to focus on both gold & rose gold table displays for our ‘Heavenly Designs’ tables.

Our rose gold table featured a stunning teardrop sequin linen by GBS with silver glitter charger plates from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals. Our clear chiavari chairs were accented with a blush satin sash woven between the back. Our Heavenly Designs’ tall floral arrangement featured garden roses in light pink and purple hues, white hydrangea, stems of orchids, and a cascading rose trim around a rose gold vase.

Our gilded show table featured a gold sequin linen paired with clear glass charger plates with gold trim. Gold chiavari chairs with gold satin chair sashes set the table. The candelabra held a lush floral display of white hydrangea, roses, carnations, dusty miller with hanging green amaranthus for a unique textured look.

Angels Dream Events decorated the ceremony area with an eye-catching gold sequin backdrop, and candles lined the aisle for a romantic display. Their white aisle runner was accented with an “I DO” spelled out in flower petals. Their show tables matched the metallic theme with silver branches adorned with crystals and a variety of blooms.

Puff ‘n Stuff Catering brought in a unique spoon display featuring delectable bites of Ahi Tuna, while Leefayes Catering gave out samples of savory Firecracker Chicken. Samples of decadent wedding cake from Party Flavors and Sprinkles Custom Cakes were a nice treat, in addition to champagne guests were given upon arrival.

We were very excited for our free wedding giveaway which included a rental of Heaven, coordination from Something Blue by Meredith, hair & makeup from Stunning Studios, and wedding cake from Party Flavors! Congratulations to Iris & Terrance who won the giveaway – we loved their reaction!

Jason & Roberto’s Intimate Ceremony

Photography: Live Happy Studio

Mr. & Mr. Mata tied the knot in Heaven with a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony. Jason & Roberto each wrote their own vows and chose to include a sand ceremony and a special unity candle lighting. Each guest held a candle so that the flame traveled from one person to the next until reaching Jason & Roberto’s parents, through the wedding party, and to the Grooms where they came together as one flame.

It truly made for an unforgettably emotional ceremony! Their wedding was full of emotions, including lots of laughter and smiles, especially when Roberto joined in on Jason’s dance with his mother to the song ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’.

Congratulations to Jason & Roberto and best wishes to the joyous couple!

George & Sade’s wedding featured shades of royal purple and plums, accented with crystals and candlelight.Their ceremony, which was held in our Secondary Banquet Hall featured a canopy with a crystal chandelier to enhance the space. We especially love the purple aisle runner to match their color scheme.

The reception space featured long tables to seat their 200+ guests for an intimate setting. Tables were set with royal purple linens & silver rosette runners which paired perfectly with silver chiavari chairs from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. Candles and crystal vases filled with purple orchids lined the tables which created a romantic ambiance.
