La Grande Fête!!!

How do you transform a ceremony space for nearly 400 guests into a Caribbean themed reception hall in less than 60 minutes? Hire À Votre Service Events™, that's how! As the wedding ceremony took place, just next door the team was preparing 36 tables and decor for 400 guests to be held in the same space. The bride was radiant as she made her way down the aisle to her beaming groom.

As the newlyweds made their recessional leading the wedding party, and guests to cocktail hour, we worked to transform the ballroom for the reception all within one hour's time.

When the guests returned to the ballroom after cocktail hour, they were immersed in a Caribbean hideaway complete with tables adorned with banana leaves, and named after Haitian and Jamaican cities. The Bride and Groom were led into the ballroom by a dance troupe, but the couple showed off their own dance moves once they reached the center of the dance floor. Later in the evening, the bride's father, a famous Caribbean musician, serenaded the happy couple and guests. In lieu of standard wedding favors, the Bride, a doctor who had volunteered in the earthquake aftermath in Haiti, along with the Groom made a donation to the relief effort.

Congratulations Tamara and Marlon!!!
