Complete Jacksonville FL Reviews from 2019 & 2020’s Most Recent Newlyweds

While 2020 gave us quite a few unexpected curveballs, many lucky couples were still blessed to be able to host the day of their dreams. 2020 weddings have come in all shapes in sizes, with varying regulations and adjustments to make these magical days quite a successful miracle. From Micro weddings to massive ones (prior to mid-March), we loved playing our part for every event! Despite the challenges, our Complete Weddings + Events team in Jacksonville has been continually reminded of why we love what we do. Luckily, the happy feelings we have about helping couples throw the best day of their lives is mutual! Here is a recap of reviews from the end of 2019 to the beginning of 2020 from our most recent newlyweds!

Complete Jacksonville FL Reviews from 2019 & 2020’s

“Everyone involved in this process was professional and courteous. One of the big selling points was that they offered a package deal. This was a huge benefit and saved a ton of time from having to talk to multiple different vendors. I really appreciate all the hard work and efforts of the entire team. Thanks again!”

 

~Selena and Michael~

“These folks have excellent DJ and photo booth services. The photo booth is really fun! My experiences with them have shown them to be reliable and conscientious.”

~Janet P.~

 

“As a Wedding Venue, we have contracted Complete Weddings & Events to create an all-inclusive package for our couples. The owners, Kathy & Scott put their heart into their work and care about each event. The DJ’s we’ve met have been just perfect! First of all, they are very professional and are focused on the wedding experience vs on themselves (as you may find with some DJ’s) . I also appreciate that they stay balanced between MCing the event vs “entertaining”. In addition, they are VERY helpful. Our last experience with DJ Rob was so sweet – after he had everything set up with his equipment, he jumped in and helped us continue our set-up. He moved chairs, lite candles, put napkins on tables and more! It is evident that all of the team members care about the wedding experience and make a difference wherever they can. Look forward to working with you more in the future!”

~Pamela A.~

 

“What a great time ! Very professional ! Amazing people amazing pictures ! I was nervous about taking photos and they made me feel very confident!”

~Renee~

 

 

“We used Complete Weddings + Events for our Dj services, our videographer, and our photo booth. They played such a huge role in making our night so fun and so perfect!

The photo booth was a huge hit and all the guests had a great time taking pics.
Our videographer was awesome, paying close attention to details while also capturing all the candid moments.

Dj Rojo was incredible! Not only did he play great music but having him there was like having a second wedding coordinator. He went above and beyond any expectations, we had for a Dj. He even helped my husband carry my giant dress train down a long dirt path where we walked to take photos, made sure my husband and I had full drinks all night, and that we were worry-free and were having a great time. He was genuinely lively and fun.

I would recommend Complete Weddings + Events 10/10”

6 Reasons Why You Should Live Stream Your Jacksonville Wedding

Why live stream your Jacksonville Wedding? When it comes to weddings, couples may be looking at ways for international relatives to still feel connected during the ceremony, or the wedding budget requires cutting back the guest list count. When you still want everyone to be able to tune in, even if it’s just virtually, live streaming your event is the best option. Let’s dive right into the benefits of live streaming your wedding ceremony.

6 Reasons Why You Should Live Stream Your Jacksonville Wedding

Endless Rewatching

The most fun reason to live stream is so you can re-watch the ceremony all over again – and so can family and friends! It’s hard to comprehend how special it is to watch this exciting, important, whirlwind moment in your life! It may be a blur when it happens, but it’s an awesome experience to be able to listen to the vows again and relive the emotions of the momentous ceremony.

Larger Reach

With live streaming, you have endless invites to the viewing party! While you may leave some extended family or long-lost high school friends out of the invite to your actual wedding, you don’t have to leave anyone out on the livestream invite! 

Keep Guest Count (and Prices!) Down

You won’t have to feel bad about leaving your mother’s coworkers, your Pilates instructor, or any guests you’re on the fence about out of the invite, since you’re still able to invite them to tune into the day! With another option to view your wedding, you can keep your guest count down which keeps the cost of catering and rentals down as well. By just inviting roughly three less tables of people (around 24 less guests), you can save over $1000 in appetizer, dinner, beverage, table decor and linen rental costs. 

No Additional Duties

Your friends and your family can simply enjoy the ceremony, whether they’re in person or watching from afar, while Complete Weddings + Events handles the live stream. Having no additional tasks for you and your guests makes choosing to do a live stream that much easier!

Affordable Video Option

In modern times, video is everywhere, because it’s truly the best method we have to capture it all! We hear the most common regret couples have after a wedding was not hiring a videographer, and we definitely understand a professional videographer does not fit in everyone’s budget. But livestreaming is a happy medium for those who are budget-conscious, but still want this special time captured. 

 

Live streaming is the perfect affordable video option, especially if you simply cannot afford a wedding videographer. You may already find extra room in the budget when limiting your total guest count, and this affordable option is a great way for those you didn’t make the final cut to still be involved in your big day!

An Option For All To Be Connected

The clear decision to choose live streaming is to be able give the opportunity for so many dear friends and family to still be connected and engaged on your wedding day. It’s still awesome to be able to watch the ceremony after the fact, but it’s quite exciting and unifying to be watching it live, as it happens! Offering a live stream of your wedding helps for all to feel as though they are not missing out on this special day. 

 

Jacksonville Live Stream Services

Complete Weddings + Events Jacksonville makes it simple for your friends and family, near or far, to tune into your big day. With a lavalier microphone for the officiant or the bride or groom, all tuning in will be able to clearly hear the ceremony and wedding vows. You can choose who can view the ceremony live, and then all can watch it back after the day is done. Contact us to learn more about our live stream services in Jacksonville, so no guest needs to miss a beat!

In This Fight Together – Project Live

Our team here at Complete Weddings & Events Jacksonville has been busy trying to help the community and we urge other local companies to try and do the same. We wanted to give back to the amazing community of Jacksonville and North Florida so we have partnered up with Project Live in conjunction with local churches to help our front line hero’s who are fighting every day to try and save as many lives as they can.

 

We have been busy collecting items and making masks with some amazing locals who wanted to help out.

Here are a few photos during our process so far… It is amazing to see how fast a community can come together in a time of need such as now..

(Kathy & Scott delivering materials to our sewing ladies for Project Live)

(85 masks ready to go thanks to all the help from Kathy and Frances)

(Frances taking time from her finals to deliver masks to Stephanie, Orange Park hospital)

*A huge shout out to a few more of the professional sewers – Kathy, Naomi Sontag & Lois. You all are amazing and we Thank You for your hard work.

 

(Stephanie with the finished product on at work)

(Some photos from the amazing St. Vincent’s Riverside ICU and ER wearing the masks at work.. We cannot thank you all enough for what you do every single day, it just proves that not all hero’s wear capes, they wear masks as well!)

 

The biggest things we can do to help fight this virus together and STOP the spread is to stay home and wash your hands! We all remember the famous childhood book Dick and Jane right? “See Spot run. Run Spot run!” well…

“Jane wants to be safe. Jane washes her hands. Jane wears a mask. Be like Jane!”

 

 

If you would like to help out we are asking for donations of 100% cotton fabric, elastic bands, protective wear glasses and helmets of any kind, especially if they have a face mask. Sewers in our community will be constructing hospital masks. Everything will be donated to local hospitals in our area.

 

If you have a donation, a driver can be scheduled to pick it up. Thanks in advance for your generosity! Kathy & Scott – Owners

Text us to schedule a pickup and we will get back to you soon! Please share with friends and family as well as neighbors so we can grab as much as possible on each pickup.

*One more shout out to the following for all the hard work during this time to make this happen

STAY SAFE!!!

Micro Weddings in Jacksonville Ideas – How to Plan & Where to Start

Considering having micro weddings in Jacksonville? These smaller events are not only a cost-saving alternative to a traditional wedding with 150+ guests, but they’re an intimate affair that can be as unique as you and your partner. Since they are on a smaller scale, there are more options for locations, catering, seating, and activities that can’t easily be recreated at a large Jacksonville event. 

 

What are Micro Weddings in Jacksonville?

Imagine a normal Jacksonville wedding celebration, just on a way smaller scale. Micro weddings most still have a ceremony and reception with dinner, decor, cake, and entertainment. The event is typically 40 people or less, with the majority of micro weddings in the range of 15 to 25 guests. A smaller guest list means less seating, centerpieces, linens, food, and the list goes on. According to The Knot’s 2019 Real Weddings Study, the average wedding last year cost over $33,000, when a micro wedding can be achieved under $10,000. Talk about major savings!

 

But a smaller wedding doesn’t mean a micro wedding can’t be lavish. While the guestlist for micro weddings is limited, this doesn’t necessarily mean the couple is throwing a frugal, thrifty wedding. Micro weddings allow a couple to bring their true wedding day vision to life with more budget for anything they can dream up! If you’re looking to splurge on a unique venue, a customized catered meal, or lavish decor, you can still save money in the end when the guest list is limited. Micro weddings give your budget more freedom to splurge on something you simply could not fathom providing for 300 people.

First Steps in Micro Wedding Planning

Similar to planning a standard wedding, the first steps in micro wedding planning is to think about your ideal timeframe and solidify a venue. The biggest difference here is that micro weddings allow for many more event location options, inside or outside. From the stage of theatre to a shady spot in your best friend’s backyard, micro weddings don’t have to be confined to a standard wedding venue. Understanding the estimated number of guests and your vision for the day (urban, bohemian, formal, garden, ethereal, modern tropical, rustic, etc.) will help guide you on what type of location to be looking for.

Jacksonville Micro Wedding Services

Photography

When throwing a micro wedding, we still suggest hiring a photographer to capture your unique day. Quality photos of you and your spouse are a must! Time and effort were put into every detail of the day, plus your favorite people in the entire world will all be together! You’ll want all this captured to look back on for years to come!

Music

Whether you want a dance-off to emerge or an evening of sing-a-long tunes around the fire pit, music helps bring your space to life! Set the atmosphere with music from when guests arrive to the final slow dance of the evening. Hire a DJ to make announcements, provide microphones for any speeches, and to create the soundtrack to the day of your dreams. 

Videography

With a small guest list, many individuals you enjoy simply won’t be able to make the slim list. Choosing videography for a micro wedding is a great option to be able to share the day with extended family members, coworkers, high school friends, your gym buddy, your mom’s hairstylist, and all those who wish they could have made the tiny invite list.

 

Take the stress out of hiring multiple vendors by choosing a vendor who can cater to multiple services for your day. Complete Weddings + Events Jacksonville offers budget-friendly packages on photography, DJ and videography perfect for a micro wedding! Having a photographer, DJ, and videographer who work well together is something you won’t take for granted!

Winter Weddings in Jacksonville Florida

You have selected the beautiful sunshine state of Florida for a reason, maybe you were tired of the snow or just wanted the beautiful white sand beneath your feet as you marry the love of your life. Winter in North Florida still brings us fond scenes of sipping hot chocolate by the fire, cozy snuggle sessions, family get-togethers, and holiday parties. While it’s a busy time of the year, there’s something amazing about it, and throwing a winter wedding should not be overlooked. Yes, it’s tricky to add another family get-together around the holiday season, but if this magical season inspires you, we encourage you to go for it! 

Choosing Winter Weddings in Jacksonville Florida

Trying to avoid every Friendsgiving, secret Santa, and holiday party is nearly impossible. Focus on what you and your fiance want and ideally what accommodates your closest immediate family and wedding party members. If your family is typically already all together for a holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, then it might actually be easier for them to travel in and attend multiple occasions. The great thing about having a winter wedding in Florida is that you do not have to worry about snowstorms or cancellations because of it becoming too cold for your loved ones, so the options are endless here in the beautiful sunshine state.

New Year’s Eve Weddings

New Year’s Eve is typically a popular wedding date, but let’s face it, throwing an amazing celebration to close out the year and ring in a new one is super exciting. This unique holiday makes for a memorable wedding, but be sure to reserve your location, hotel block, and vendors as soon as possible. With so many parties that day, private or public, availability may be limiting your options on choosing the exact vendors you’d like. 

Winter Weddings in Jacksonville Florida

The couples who opted for this magical time of year to have their Winter Weddings in Jacksonville Florida lucked out, and we have the photos to prove it! They may not have the snowflakes falling in their photos but they have it even better, they have beautiful white sand beaches and happy friends and who family who attended the wedding without freezing. We know you will absolutely not regret a winter wedding in the beautiful Sunshine State!

We also love the Florida Winter Engagement sessions that have the Holiday warmth feeling to them. These next two are from Mike & Jessica’s engagement session in Saint Augustine Florida during the Night’s of Lights event they hold every year in Downtown.

Josh & Nicole also selected a winter engagement session in the beautiful city of Saint Augustine, Fl.

 

Winter in Florida is not that bad, you can even capture a beautiful wedding on the beach or engagement session without freezing, such as this one with Bryan & Jenny.

 

Whatever you choose to do, make sure you top it off and make it your very own style!!

Bryan & Jenny went with the beautiful Traditional Vietnamese Wedding outfits.

 

Contact us for availability on our wedding photographers or videographers to capture your wedding,  no matter what season you choose in Florida it is bound to be absolutely breathtaking and on the warmer side.

Jacksonville DJ’s First Dance Songs

We have a mix of popular first dance songs and newly released songs that are soon to be heard at a wedding near you! We have compiled a playlist of these Jacksonville DJ’s First Dance Songs for you to review to help make your selection for your wedding day. 

Classic Jacksonville DJ’s First Dance Songs

These songs are staples for a couple’s first dance. You can’t go wrong with classics from everlasting artists like Lionel Richie and Elvis Presley. We’ve also included staple romantic songs from the soulful John Legend and Adele. Beware as these songs may cause you to tear up or want to be embraced by a loved one. You’ve most likely heard them at weddings before, and you’ll probably hear them again. And it’s a touching moment every time!

First Dance Songs of 2020

We think these will be popular, or still be popular in 2020 as choices for a first dance. Released in 2019 or 2020, these are great options if you’re looking for a song you haven’t heard others dance to. Create a unique moment with a recently released song!

Simple Bridal Fashion | Jacksonville, FL

From the layers of tulle to breathtaking, detailed lace and sequins for the perfect bit of sparkle, there’s that perfect dress for any Jacksonville bride- to-be. For some, desiring a more ‘less is more’ approach to your dream dress (no- frill but stunning nonetheless), we have good news and believe this can be easily showcased. Attracted to clean lines, minimalist aesthetic, and of course, top-of-the-line craftsmanship, these wedding dresses showcase that no matter your style, you can go simple.

Princess

Princess gowns don’t always have to sparkle and shine! A full skirt that’s light or heavy on layers and makes a unique statement with a beautiful lace detail is graceful and grand.

Glamorous

Vintage- inspired with the allure of glamorous style of bridal fashion. Focus on showcasing that structured shape and fabric, which is the true heart of glamour.

Traditional

This traditional sleeve never gets old. While the lace details is a soft touch, its texture and details can bring a sophisticated sort to the front and center of the dress’ design.

Edgy

Bold necklines and daring angles will define for the true, avant-garde bride. Choose a dress that will turn heads- the ultimate statement for this bride.

Modern

This contemporary route might lead you to be all about texture. Uniquely shaped and high to low hemlines might bring a new and fresh take on the big day’s dress.

Boho

As a huge trend in the market, these simple, albeit individualistic dresses should still shine in a way that lets them do it all on their own. Say hello to flowy and unrestricted.
