I had the pleasure of working with Miranda Overstreet for her sister’s Wedding a few years ago, so when I received a phone call that she was engaged, I immediately became excited because I enjoyed working with the family.
The Overstreets are a family that do not live in Orlando, so logistical details are important as the Weddings tend to take place in their “neck of the woods”
Miranda decided to get married at the family ranch in Sebring, a place she spent many summers as a child. As I approached the gate, the property seemed enormous, and my wheels started to turn – where were we going to have this celebration? As we walked on the 250 acre property and were brainstorming ideas, we approached the largest Oak trees I had ever seen in my life, the were so large, that once you were close to them, you were encircled by their branches! We picked the perfect Oak for the Ceremony background, where we would set our natural wood chairs for seating. The Cocktail Reception would take place in another portion of the trees as well, with the dinner reception under a tent nearby.
Our menu plan was easy, as Beef Tenderloin is a must for this family! We added an Apple Wood Smoked Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin for variety, along with Roasted Buttternut Squash, Green Beans, and Twice Baked Garlic Smashed Potatoes.
The décor was centered around earth tones and naturals, to perfectly match the Bride and Groom’s taste. Our Chocolate Brown Pintuck linens were used for the tables, Black folding chairs with a table arrangement of round tables and rectangular tables.
Preparation for out of town weddings take extra measures on our end – planning generators for power, building a temporary kitchen, different set-up teams due to the long hours, and most importantly refrigeration. Thanks to our Logistics team, especially Scott Foley for being on site during the entire event to ensure all challenges were faced and resolved.
We enjoy traveling for special events as it always give us the opportunity to raise the bar on our services and explore new places. Thanks Miranda and Ashley for letting us be a part of your day!
