Unique Venues for a Memorable Wedding

When looking for a location for your wedding consider looking at unusual and unique locations. A great way to make your wedding stand out is by making it different than the typical venue. Picking a unique venue is a great way to give you a chance to get creative with your decorations and theme. Here are a few unique event spaces to consider.

Factory or industrial setting

One of the best parts about factory buildings are they are often very big, so you won’t have to worry about fitting everything you want. Whether you want to make your wedding big or small a factory is perfect. You can go for a simple rustic feel and just add the furniture and simple décor. Or you can go big and cover the building with decorations. Having your wedding in an empty factory is a great way to start from scratch and create the wedding you envision.

Outdoor

From a rooftop in an urban area to a quiet county park, choosing to do an outdoor wedding is always refreshing. Parks are often cheaper than renting a room in a building and often give you more room. If you want to have your wedding outside you need to consider the time of year and weather. Although a light breeze is romantic, strong winds can cause your wedding to get blown away. Having your wedding outside can allow you to get creative with your decorations. If your reception is going to be going till dark add some pretty lights to create a romantic feel. Another way to save money but also have a unique experience is by having your wedding in a backyard. If your backyard isn’t big enough to host a wedding, see if one of your friends would allow you to use theirs. Having your wedding in your backyard can add a homey feel to your event and another bonus is that you can get ready in your own room.

Aquariums or Zoos

Often aquariums or zoos have rooms they rent for special events. This is a great way to make your wedding stand out to be memorable. Look online for events they’ve held there to determine if the space will be enough for everything you want. Often the event rooms at aquariums have great views of beautiful fish tanks and pretty scenery that you can use to inspire your theme.

For recommendations on unique and exciting venues for your wedding, contact Breezin’ Entertainment. They have years of experience and will be able to recommend a place that is perfect for you.

Intrapreneur Boss

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a job that allows you to create new products and services with the financial support of a company, and you don’t have to follow a corporation’s routines and protocols. It’s called being an intrapreneur, and it’s a real thing that you could do.

You need to have the drive and innovative mindset of an entrepreneur and the ability to take on a few extra tasks, which can sometimes be risky. You also need to think out-of-the-box to be able to change the strategic direction of the company and help the corporation grow. If you can achieve these things, you can be equipped with the potential to gain leadership positions.

For example, massive companies like Google and Microsoft are always looking to come up with new ideas to create long-term benefits for consumers and the company. The outcome of this exploration has resulted in significant technological advances in society.

However, there are going to be difficulties being an intrapreneur. One of them is facing the backlash from co-workers who are not immune to change. Another is taking rejection, which is bound to happen. Going through several trials is needed in order for you to grow and get somewhere. You can never give up on projects and must always be willing to put in the extra effort.

Being an intrapreneur allows you to watch a business grow from your creative ideas. If you possess the qualities of an intrapreneur, then it’s time you go out and become the driving force for a company.

Tips to Find the Perfect Music for Your Wedding

Finding the right music can make your wedding even more special so take your time on deciding what is best for you and your event. Here are a few different ways you can go with your wedding music to make your special night even more magical.

Classical Instruments

A harpist or string quartet is a great way to add some sophistication to your big day and will make a great addition to your ceremony or dinner. Just because you are getting classical instruments doesn’t mean you are stuck with classical music. Most musicians can play modern music either an instrumental version or create their own more classical rendition of it. Talk to your musicians and find out what kind of music they can play to make sure you find the perfect fit. Your musicians can play through the ceremony to the appetizers adding a romantic and classy feel to your wedding.

Band

A band is a great way to add energy to your event. People often use a band for the reception, but you can also ask if they are able to play for your ceremony as well. Every band is different, so it is important that you do your research. Find a band that’s style works well with the theme of your wedding. Make sure they can play the songs you would want to hear, most importantly make sure they can play the song you want for your first dance.

DJ

The perfect DJ will have your guests dancing all night. The great part about hiring a DJ is being able to play almost any song you request. When hiring a DJ, it is important you ask them a couple of questions. Your first question should be about the playlist. Find out if he takes requests, follows a strict playlist, or if they follow the crowd. If you want only certain songs played, make sure they know that. You should also let them know what songs you don’t want to be played. When it comes down to reception the DJ’s priority is to keep your guests happy and dancing. That means your DJ may change up the music if it seems like your guests are starting to lose interest.

Jazz

Nothing says smooth and sophisticated like jazz-era music. Jazz music can range from classics like Frank Sinatra to more modern musicians like Michael Bublé. Sax makes great background music for drinks and you can switch it up to a vocalist and soft music during dinner when everyone is sitting. The band can switch it up and play some blues, pop, and R&B for the guests to dance to.

When deciding on music for your wedding it is important to do your research. Ask for reviews or if they have videos of them performing at events to see what they are like. You will want to see how they interacted with guests and if they were able to read the crowd and adjust to keep them interested. For help in finding the perfect fit go to https://breezin.com/.

A Guide to Planning a Florida Destination Wedding

Having a Florida Destination Wedding can be the perfect way to celebrate your special day. Florida serves as the ideal wedding location with its beautiful beaches, gorgeous sunsets, nice weather, and other unique locations. Even your guests are going to appreciate the tropical vacation-like atmosphere. Aside from the breathtaking outdoor scenery, Florida also has many luxury hotels and other venues where you could host after-parties. If these characteristics seem appealing to you, then it’s best you know everything that the sunshine state has to offer. Here is a guide to planning your Florida destination wedding.

Weather

Florida is known to have beautiful sunny weather, but this does not happen all year round. Hurricane season is prominent and is active from June to November, but you don’t have to avoid this entire time period. Rainfall can happen at any time; however, April and November have the least. From June to September is when there are higher chances of rainfall. Ideal weather for weddings is more likely to be in April and May when it’s not blazing hot outside.

Florida’s Marriage Requirements

A marriage license can be obtained at a county clerk’s office and enables you to use it anywhere in state. During the process, there is a waiting period for three days, so make sure to plan your wedding accordingly. Once you have your license, you have sixty days to get married and seal the deal with your partner.

Location Ideas and Additions

There are many different places and additions you can have featured for your Florida destination wedding. You could have it somewhere extravagant and fun like in Miami Beach, or you could do something more intimate like a garden wedding in St. Petersburg. You could even have a wedding at Disneyworld and arrive at the ceremony in Cinderella’s carriage. Almost anything is possible.

In case you can’t decide, remember that you can choose multiple locations. You could have the wedding on a waterfront and the cocktail party in a garden. The options are endless. When it comes to decorations, you might have to stick with a tropical or beachy theme because of Florida’s nature.

Entertainment options are also unlimited. Tampa entertainment agency, Breezin’ Entertainment & Productions is known for their fantastic event planning and destination wedding services. Booking event entertainment can be difficult when you don’t know what entertainment to have or how to book it, but Breezin’ is always glad to help. Contact Breezin’ Entertainment for your next Florida destination wedding.

Food

There’s a variety of great food everywhere in Florida. You can have stone crab in Miami or key lime pie in the Florida Keys. Caribbean food is found mostly in southern Florida, so if you’re looking for Cuban sandwiches and seafood, keep your eye in the South. If you’re thinking about being adventurous and want gator tail at your wedding, that’s also a thing, it can be found almost anywhere in Florida.

Re-Building One Step at a Time

Living with a neurological injury is a challenge in itself, but that doesn’t stop Romulo “Romy” Camargo from living his life to the fullest. Stay in Step Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center is an organization founded by husband and wife Romy and Gabriela Camargo that begun in June of 2015. This recovery center provides critical physical therapy services to victims of neurological injuries. Despite its importance, unfortunately healthcare providers do not provide these recovery centers. But the hardworking couple made it their goal to make this happen for the Tampa Bay area.

In 2008, Romy was injured in combat during his service in the Afghanistan tour, which caused him to be paralyzed from the neck down. Romy’s life changed completely, but the couple faced the long-term challenge to recover together. From this tragic experience, they felt the need to advocate for those who suffer from neurological injuries like Romy.

Stay in Step is a unique program that Romy and Gabriela built together from the ground up. The process was difficult due to the descending rates of Medicare and Medicaid, but the organization was still able to receive investments from healthcare.

Stay in Step has the patience for those in recovery, unlike other healthcare providers. Each client is treated with the utmost respect and is never forgotten or left behind during their recovery. They can get as far as they possibly can in the process. Unfortunately, other healthcare providers do not have the same service. Because the couple has been living the same reality as their clients, they fully understand the challenges their clients face every day.
