Review from the couple:
"When we started planning our wedding, one of the first things we did was find our venue (which is three hours away from where we live). When we went home I knew we would need help. I asked a friend who was in the wedding business and she gave me a list of recommended wedding planners in Orlando from first to last. Rebekkah was top of that list. I emailed her right away and was blessed that she was available on our date. If anyone asked for my opinion I would say the same. This girl has a gift. From start to finish she is as much or even more excited about your wedding than you are. Her passion rubs off on you. If you are having a bad day just hug her. Her hugs would melt a snowman. She recommended amazing vendors, kept me on track with my timeline and helped me bring ideas to reality. There was so much more that went into planning a wedding than I ever imagined! She was more than our wedding planner, she became a friend. There were times I didn't know what to do and I put my trust in Rebekkah. I am glad we did. Our wedding was a dream for us and our guests! On the day of our wedding I was so relaxed knowing I had Rebekkah by my side. Everyone was amazed by every detail and it was all because of her and her team. They let us enjoy our day and took care of EVERYTHING! We wouldn't change a thing! Seriously, Rebekkah and Runway Events are the dream team. Best investment we could have made!"

Jared's Luau

Jared was the smartest, kindest most humble human being. He always thought of others before himself, remembered everyone’s birthdays and basically could figure out any piece or technology in a second. More than any of that - he was my little brother. 

Jared was diagnosed with Hodgekins Lymphoma when he was only 14. It’s hard to believe that next week will be one year since he passed at only 16 years old. It has been a hard year for all of us (I am the oldest of 7) - and it’s still hard to look through photos without tears. 

I wanted to do something that would keep his memory alive and give back. At one of Jared’s many treatments, our family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House in Salt Lake City. Ronald McDonald House is truly an incredible organization that provides a peaceful and comfortable place for families in time of need. I felt that would be a great cause to give back to and Jared would have been proud. 

Then came Jared’s Luau. I wanted to do a luau inspired charity event - that was laid back and fun. I was struggling to find a name and with the help of my Hubby, we found “Jared’s Luau” -- so fitting.

I started reaching out to my vendor partners to help me put on this event and everyone welcomed it with open arms. I can’t even express how grateful I am and everyone went SO above and beyond and far exceeded my vision and expectations.

I am so excited to share these photos with you... to share Jared with you. Many tears fell even writing this post, but I am so excited for next year's event and to continue supporting more incredible organizations in the future. 

P.S. We raised almost $5,000! 

XOXO,

 Rebekkah

Romantic Sunset Shoot at Paddlefish Restaurant in Disney Springs

It was such a magical evening at Paddlefish Restaurant in the heart of Disney Springs for this styled shoot. The sunset view form the rooftop deck overlooking the lake is unbeatable, making this the perfect location for an intimate + romantic wedding! We had so much fun creating this and every moment had us all swooning. The blush, peach, ivory and dusty gray tones of this shoot were so dreamy, especially the blush Hayley Paige gown the bride wore from Calvet Couture Bridal. Not to mention, our gorgeous real life couple, Erin & Jesse, could not have been any more adorable!

Both the indoor + outdoor spaces at Paddlefish have a clean, modern vibe, which is the exact backdrop we were looking for!  Beautiful floral arrangements by Raining Roses Productions and styling elements from The Runway Collection tied everything together for the magic to happen. Check out the photos by JP Pratt Photography and view the full list of vendors involved below. 

XOXO
