Florida Bride and Groom Wearing Wedding Rings and Bands

Intimate Tropical Green and Gold At-Home Tampa Oasis Wedding

I wanted reliability in a wedding planner and openness to new ideas as things changed constantly with COVID.

Parties A'La Carte did a phenomenal job. They turned our backyard into a jungle oasis. With the help of our planner and all of the vendors, we made what was looking like a backyard barbecue into a simple but beautiful and intimate wedding. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how the entire day went. They set the mood perfectly!

We are both extremely detail-oriented and perfectionists, and we wanted a wedding planner who had that same eye for detail who would bring our wedding vision to life.

After our initial consultation with Jessica Ralph from Parties A’ La Carte, we knew that she and her team were the perfect fit. Jessica and the PALC team completely exceeded our expectations! They knew our vision exactly and were there every step of the way to make it come to life.

Someone who would listen to our needs but also think of all the little details that make a wedding special.

We found Parties A'La Carte was highly reviewed online and really hit it off upon meeting them. They were great!

Location and experience were on the list when comparing options and would play a role in my final decision.

I knew the Parties A'La Carte team had experience planning beautiful events in the Belleair, Clearwater, St Pete, and Tampa areas from my research online. After meeting Jessica in person, the organization I saw portrayed throughout all outlets within her business was impressive. I could tell she was very detail-oriented, and in combination with her confidence, I knew 100% she was my person. Jessica had the backbone I very much needed and was able to navigate my over-thinking, overanalyzing, and perfectionist mind with an eye for detail and a team that was there for us every step of the way bringing our wedding vision to life! I would find myself often thinking, “You knew what I wanted before I even knew what I wanted!” At the end of the day, my planning team was the biggest asset to my overall experience. 

Jessica was a saint the morning of my wedding day after a sleepless night stressing over the groom's lost luggage, including his tuxedo, and truly became a great friend during the whole process. She was even so thoughtful as to offer her personal diamond bracelet as my “something borrowed” for my wedding day look since it was another last-minute item on my to-do list not completed at the time. She was the backbone I needed throughout the whole wedding planning process. I don’t know what I would have done without her and the entire Parties A'La Carte team in our corner who brought our wedding vision to life, making it truly a hole-in-one!

I wanted someone who was professional and honest. I was also looking for someone that had experience in the local industry.

Having a wedding planner that has good relationships with the vendors in the area is so important, especially when you have to move your wedding because of a pandemic. I really liked Jessica’s wedding portfolio, vision, and ability to speak her mind. We were really happy with the service from Parties A'La Carte.

Originally, I only hired a wedding planner for the “day of” services, because I thought I had the rest covered. I was wrong! Planning a wedding has so many details that need to be attended to, and I was not prepared or equipped to hire some of the decorators and details myself. That job should be reserved for someone who works in that industry every day! I met Jessica Ralph [of Parties a la Carte] at a wedding I was in, just after I had gotten engaged to Tyler. We hit it off right away; it was very important to me that someone had the same method for dealing with vendors prior to the wedding, issues that day of and was just fun to work with, and Jessica was all those thing and more. She took charge of all the details, was there for me every step of the way in the wedding planning and executed a perfect event on the day of! Jessica and her team were amazing, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a planner of any event!
