Bud & Alley’s Wedding in Seaside Florida: Perfect For An Intimate Celebration
This weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of Anthony and Stephanie’s Bud & Alley’s wedding in Seaside, FL. It’s a surprisingly intimate venue, considering it is in the middle of shops on the south side of 30A, which fit the number of guests they had (40).
Venue, Coordination and Catering: Bud & Alley’s
Entertainment: DJ Josh Weck, B-Boy Productions, Inc.
The staff was excellent and very easy to work with. Both Rachel and Kathryn (event coordinators at the restaurant) made sure everything was on point, which can relieve so much stress for not just the wedding couple but the vendors as well. Of course with us being in Florida, there was a threat of rain (what else is new?). However, the permanent tent structure covering the entire outside of the venue ensured that the wedding festivities would go off without a hitch. In my opinion, this is a huge selling point for the venue!
One of the memorable moments was when Stephanie’s brother, Dave, walked in during dinner with a glistening bottle of Moët. I knew then that the night was just getting started. Music ranged from Sinatra to Yelawolf to Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. Upon the final note of “Home” and my farewell, the guests, along with the Bride and Groom in tow, ventured upstairs to the bar at Bud & Alley’s to continue their festivities. Yet, another selling point of this venue ~ easy walk (just upstairs) for the after-party. Just about any other outside venue requires you shut down at 10PM due to the noise ordinance. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your day Anthony and Stephanie.
