Jesseca + Tom | The Addison | Boca Raton, FL
"I have to admit, my dress pretty much set the stage for the vision of my wedding and things just kind of went from there! Picking the venue was the hardest decision for me. I wanted to find the perfect destination spot for all our out of town guests, while also making sure the space fit the style and vibe I was going for. When I found The Addison, I fell in love with its Old-World charm and intimate setting. I instantly imagined turning the courtyard with the 100+ year old banyan trees into a romantic vintage garden with a beautiful arch and cascading floral pillars. My colors were also very vintage using tones of blush, burgundy, rose gold, sangria, peach, and plum. I used several pieces from The Runway collection as a sitting area for cocktail hour, which complimented the rest of my décor and looked so romantic under the bistro lights in courtyard!
For the reception, we had two king’s tables which were adorned with floral garland and candles. The rest of the round tables were accompanied with tall arrangements that draped with eucalyptus and amaranthus. And with almost two years of planning under my belt, I may have gone a little overboard with details but it’s those little details that made the day so unique and special to me. One of my favorite pieces was the mini gourdes I had painted rose gold, which Rebekkah had used to scatter along the ceremony aisle and as part of the centerpieces. Everything just came together so beautifully -- Rebekkah and I couldn’t have nailed it any better!"
Jesseca's #RunwayBride Review
"After planning with Rebekkah for 1 ½ years, I feel like we’ve created such a bond and I’m sad that our time together has come to an end! With a destination wedding, a fiancé in the military, and my family living in another state, I knew a planner was a MUST. I researched several wedding planners when I first got engaged and as soon as I had my first call with Rebekkah, I knew Runway Events was it and she was the gal to help me keep it together. She’s the perfect balance of a genuine sweetheart that you enjoy spending time with and a fierce boss babe that you need to get the job done.
Rebekkah understood that attention to detail was extremely important to me from the get-go and helped guide my vision throughout the planning process. I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m a little OCD and a firm believer that if you want something done right, do it yourself. But I never felt that way with Rebekkah and always trusted her 100% with my sacred day. If I ever felt overwhelmed or doubted anything, she was always reassuring and there to help me make the best decisions. I hired her for full planning so she was there from helping me to pick out the venue, to getting me in my dress the day of. I don’t think there was anything she wasn’t a part of and my dream wedding wouldn’t have been possible without her. I was so impressed with how she and her assistant Anna ran the wedding day, there wasn’t one detail missed. You have a vision in your head but you never really know how it’s all going to come together and I can say without a doubt that my day was better than I ever pictured.
I’m so grateful to Runway and how I could be completely relaxed the entire day of my wedding. You don’t realize how chaotic the day can be with everyone looking for direction and all the vendors to manage, but I can honestly say I never had to worry about it and the day was seamless. If there were any snags or mishaps, I didn’t know about it which is how it should be for any bride! It truly allowed me to enjoy the day and savor every moment with the love of my life, which was the most important thing of all."
