Our favorite part of engagement season is participating in bridal shows and showcases. It’s an amazing opportunity for us to style some of our favorite pieces and wow the attendees with inspirational decor. A few weeks ago we participated in the Florida Wedding Expo along with our vendor partners Treasury Rentals and Flowers by Lesley.

The Ceremony Space
Featuring the following inventory:
- Gold and White Louis Chairs
- Custom Walls
- Fireplace (Yes, its free standing)
- Lots of gorgeous fresh floral from Flowers by Lesley
The Social Lounge
The highlight for this lounge was the Hunter Sofa + the floral ring
From louis chairs, chargers, farmhouse tables, and candelabras… our extensive inventory has a little something for most Central Florida brides.
When I started RW Events (many, many years ago) I wasn’t sure of the direction I’d take and never imagined my little company developing into the brand it is today.
We thought our target market would be corporate and social events. Three months after opening, our first client was an engaged couple with a complicated family life and limited budget. We worked our magic to make their wedding a huge success. The lessons I learned from this wedding:
- No matter the budget, every bride deserves HER dream wedding
- DIY is NOT for me
- Comfortable heels are not just for grannies, lol
- I didn’t charge enough for my time
- I needed a team
These lessons didn’t deter me, it fueled my drive. Following each event, I would make a list of things I did well and areas for improvement. By the time we hit our one-year anniversary, we had our first part-time employee… and the rest is history!
Our Creative Manager, Dede Cowart, wanted to show the growth of RW Events and worked closely with the talented Andi Mejia, to illustrate our story. And YES, we intentionally left out the failures, lol.
