Stetson Mansion: Surprise Wedding Give Away

When you’re asked to be a part of such a spectacular event like this one, the answer is obviously YES! To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the restoration to Stetson Mansion, owners J.T. Thompson and Michael Solari wanted to do something monumental and memorable. They orchestrated a surprise wedding give-a-way worth $25,000 to one lucky bride and groom, and we were thrilled to participate in this historic occasion.

Event Planner, Swanky I Do’s, took the reigns to coordinate this fairytale affair in under three weeks.  They enlisted the help of vendors and local business from around Central Florida to give the bride, Alaina Pixley, her dream wedding…for free!

The wedding was in intimate gathering of the couple’s closest family and friends.  It boosted a vintage theme with modern touches, not unlike the vibe of Stetson Mansion itself.  Art Faulkner Photographer captured all the details of this on-the-house extravaganza.

Specialty Event Linen Rental provided light blue table linens that lent a delicate quality to the reception. Floral arrangements by Fairbanks Florist intermingled on top of the guest tables with tapered candle pillars. Our Natural Wood Chiavari Chairs with our  White Chair Pads added a modern touch to the vintage vibes, while the Gold Rim Glass Chargers supplied the perfect amount of elegance.

We are absolutely thrilled to have teamed up with Stetson Mansion and all the other vendors who dedicated their time and resources to this special occasion. What a treat it was to give this deserving bride and groom a wedding day they will never forget.  Congratulations!
