In continuation of celebrating February and the month of love, Camana Bay caught up with the latest from Celebrations, a company that specialises in events, weddings, celebrations, flowers and creating memories to last a lifetime.
Celebrations began as a one-person operation based in the Cayman home of Jo Anne V. Brown, also known as the “Fairy Godmother of Brides”, and has grown into an event management company with event planners, floral artists and designers. The team at Celebrations understands that planning events can be quite stressful so their range of services are meant to help take the stress away so you can focus on fun, including wedding and event planning from A to Z, event design/décor, production perfection, floral creations, event rentals, destination management, amenities and special touches and tuxedo rentals.
Celebrations manages a few thousand weddings each year, ranging from elegant, seaside weddings for 200 at Pedro St. James to breezy cruise ship weddings for two where the couple hops off the ship, is swooped up by the Celebrations team, taken to the ceremony site, and returned back to the ship as a newly married couple.
Jo Anne V. Brown, owner of Celebrations, knows all too well how overwhelming big events can be and suggests to those planning a big soirée to break it down into separate to-do lists and then delegating those tasks to a wedding planner. “Brides think they can do it all but we recommend you hire someone who can do the hard work so you can focus on the big day.”
Celebrations specialises in unique, small touches. A recent favourite of the team’s was at a local wedding held at Pedro St. James, when Celebrations organised an artist to paint throughout the wedding and create a watercolour masterpiece for the couple to remember the day. They also loved how a couple chose to line the aisle with framed bible verses at a recent beach wedding. The options are endless and the Celebrations team are equipped to accommodate any request.
And don’t forget, if it’s a special gift you are after, Celebrations also has a boutique based in Camana Bay. Belle by Celebrations is a chic boutique where you can find accessories, home décor, clothing, artwork and more. You can also see a sample of their floral abilities with their floral wall or browse through their interactive “Flower Bar”.
