The Art of Creating an Unforgettable Wedding

The Estate at Florentine Gardens, a premier New Jersey wedding venue, and their team of talented creatives are pushing beyond the normal limits of traditional wedding places. Their design team has taken the lead in offering couples and their guest’s one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experiences.

Non-traditional weddings are all the rage. Couples are getting more creative. They are looking for spaces and event stylists who can help them create a wedding that reflects their personalities as a couple. They want a unique and memorable experience for their guests. The challenge? Knowing what’s possible and how to pull it all together. 

The Estate at Florentine Gardens Takes the Lead

In March 2021, Florentine Gardens collaborated with some of the most talented individuals in the industry in a mock-up wedding photoshoot to get couples thinking outside the box and excited about their upcoming nuptials. 

The inspiration for the team’s “Garden of Eden” wedding design came from the gardens of the Estate at Florentine. “Known for outdoor ceremonies, we wanted clients to visualize themselves having a garden reception indoors,” said Amanda Miraglia, assistant general manager at Florentine Gardens and founder of Amanda Rae Event Styling Co. 

“An unlikely concept for most, we brought the vision to life capturing the essence of modern elegance and romance. We created elevated yet achievable looks to give clients fresh ideas.”

How to Achieve Your Own Unforgettable Wedding

Knowing your interests and preferred style is a start. Images from Pinterest and Instagram are great too. Turning those ideas into a total wedding experience is a challenge for many couples. A good event stylist is worth their weight in gold when it comes to creating a unique wedding experience. They have the expertise and creative genius to help you transform your ideas into the stress-free, unforgettable wedding you want. They build trust and repour with you and become your “go-to”.

The Estate at Florentine Garden’s assistant general manager, Amanda Miraglia, recently launch Amanda Rae Event Styling Co. Her vision? To collaborate with couples to develop a cohesive look and feel for their wedding day.

“At Amanda Rae, our focus in on helping couples create one-off designs and distinctive experiences that reflect their families’ traditions and any trends that are meaningful to them. Their color palette, floral design, stationery, linens and finer details – that whole story comes out with their story,” shared Amanda.

“At Amanda Rae Event Styling Co. we custom tailor your event with precise execution. Elevating life’s most important celebrations with a picture-perfect design and truly memorable guest experience.” 

For many couples, the biggest challenges or stress points are how to pull all their ideas together into a cohesive experience and how to get it all done. Amanda explained, “It’s often the design details and how to execute them that cause the most stress for couples.  The design process can be overwhelming. We provide a detailed event concept and source the perfect vendors to ensure a flawless event.”

Amanda continued, “When you have somebody hand-in-hand with you through the whole design process, who knows your exact style and vision, you go into your day with ease knowing it’s all going to be done and done right.”
