Real Events | The Ballroom at Church Street | I Do Downtown Bridal Crawl
February 12, 2013 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering | comments

We’re so proud to have participated in the 4th annual I Do Downtown Bridal Crawl. One of the things we cherish most about this event is that it isn’t your usual wedding show where you are bombarded by vendors and booths filled with sheets & diagrams. Instead you get the opportunity to visit eight of Downtown Orlando’s well-established venues in a wedding showcase that includes delicious catering, exotic honeymoon destinations, photographers & videographers, reliable transportation, glorious flowers, dramatic music, and anything else you could dream up for your wedding! As the name suggests, you start at one venue and work your way around downtown; whether it be by foot or by the Redi Pedi Cab company who so generously sponsored their services for the day.

This was our fourth year participating in this extravagant event, and each year we transform The Ballroom at Church Street with a fresh new theme. This year we went bold with orange and purple hues. The Ballroom truly looked stunning, dressed with linens from BBJ Linen and event furniture from AFR Event furnishings that complimented each other so well it was the perfect fusion. We had two florists team up, Fairbanks Florists and Lee Forrest Designs who are truly an incredible duo. Together they created exquisite arrangements full of life and detail, from the rich and earthy succulents for the farm fresh table to the dramatic draping of roses for the gorgeous ceremony site designed by Occasions by Shangri-la. Guests were moving to the beats provided by Atomic Entertainment and Junction 88 Productions on the dance floor by Letz Dance On It- talk about the perfect trio! But the fun didn’t stop there. Guests were able to gather advice from some of the industry’s finest event professionals such as Sharon from Good Life Travel & Events- a Sandals and Caribbean honeymoon expert, as well as Imprint Cinema, Simpliche, The Sugar Suite, Sweet Maralyn’s Chocolates, A Chair Affair, Michele Butler Events and Nicole Squared.

Of course we wouldn’t let this show go on without delightful bites! Our well-seasoned service staff butler-passed champagne and a delicious assortment of hors d’oeurves including our Fire Roasted Humus Cornet, Smoked Chicken Cornet, Ahi Tuna on a Lotus Chip, Italian Summer Wrap, and Bacon Wrapped Potato Tot. We debuted our new flatbreads including the Buffalo Chicken & Bleu and Brocolini Tartine. Did we mention we also had our famous Seared Scallop on Corn Relish Chef Action Station and Chicken Roulade & Orzo Chef Action Station? It was quite the delicious affair!
