The Bride’s Big Day

Planning a wedding can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to think about.

Every bride wants her big day to be one that is unique, personal, and will be remembered as a momentous occasion. The wedding professionals at Celebration Hall, the premier beach side events venue on the Emerald Coast, are here to guide you through all the decision making and will help coordinate all your wedding needs, from decor, to lightning, to arranging a cake, to catering and so much more. In fact, to make things easier, our event experts have screened and selected a group of the best area vendors. Our list includes a varied group offering different styles and price points for every bride’s taste and budget. Our event coordinators are always looking for fresh ideas and the latest trends to make your wedding pop! Among some of the more clever ideas of 2014 include:
  • Symbolic Touches – like a Sand Ceremony where the bride and groom take turns pouring colored sand(in your wedding colors!) into a beautiful keepsake glass vase in front of their loved ones to symbolize the joining of two people, two families and the unity of their coming together. Then the happy couple can keep the treasure on a mantel or beside table to remind them of their commitment to each other.
  • Fresh Details – make a bold statement in a beautifully unusual way with enormous floral arrangements or by decorating ceilings with a thousand hanging ribbons, beads or crystals to add a truly amazing wow factor. Colored lighting will enhance the look further and freshly set a magical mood. Add a dramatic firework finale on the beach, handing sparklers out to guests to partake in the revelry, and finish the evening reception with a bang!
  • Venue with a dramatic flair – Theatrical, unusual venues, with high ceilings, striking picture windows and roaring open fires are all the rage. Celebration Hall was inspired by the grand halls of European Manor homes and offers a truly unique and romantic experience with vaulted beamed ceilings, oak doors, and massive wrought iron chandeliers scaled to impress. Celebration Hall evokes the luxury and romance of a historical venue in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach, surrounded by the natural beauty of our coastline.
Other interesting touches we like include living table numbers like ballerinas with numbered balloons, where table numbers come to life (literally!) And finding your seat becomes performance art. Or suspended wedding cakes which look like a confectioners chandelier. Our personal favorite, prefect for our manicured lawns and gardens…Picnic style receptions for the couple looking for a more relaxed and casual vibe, do away with tables and chairs altogether and spread out blankets and baskets for picnic-style seating under the stars! So come experience the romance and magic of the beautiful event venue Celebration Hall, built on the rolling sugar fine sands and emerald green surf of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
