Florida Wedding Professionals for a Cure


It’s truly inspiring to see our vendor members take our message to heart and host events on our behalf. Florida vendor sponsor Élan Event Studio recently hosted one such event in Tampa, a networking evening with over 100 attendees!

Owners Monica Varner and Erica Shelton explained the beautifully fun pink photos above:

As guests entered the pink ballroom, they were greeted by pink light ribbons everywhere. There was a giant pink ribbon on one wall, tiny ribbons lit up all over the floor, and a “SAVE THE TATAS” logo on the acrylic bar. The Go-Go dancer was grooving to the beat in her hot pink wig and the guest speaker, Chris Hubbard, a breast cancer survivor and awareness advocate, was the real hit of the evening.

The décor featured three different floral centerpieces ranging from pale pink to hot pink on pink linens.  The room had draped seating areas all around.  There was a lounge area set up for the guests to relax as well as a private VIP area.

The signature pink drinks were flowing.  For food, they offered sushi, Italian, and passed hors d’oeuvres.  For dessert, pink cotton candy and a four-layered cake.  We even had pink strawberry milk shooters that were served with the cake!
