Residence Inn Amelia Island Hotel Associates Commit to Helping Local Couple Realize Wedding Dreams

Special Event Planning on Fernandina Beach Saves Wedding Day for Distraught Couple

FERNANDINA BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Devastated and hopeless after suffering at the hand of a scamming local wedding planner, one couple will realize a dream beach wedding thanks to thoughtful Fernandina Beach event planning by associates at the stylish Residence Inn Amelia Island hotel.

Danielle Atkins and Jeseh Smith were finalizing last minute wedding details when they realized that in the eyes of their wedding planner, rather than a happy bride and groom, they were merely another couple who had fallen victim to her fraudulent schemes. After paying the scheming wedding planner for the bulk of her dream event, the bride received only unfulfilled promises and heartbreak with her wedding day drawing near.

Learning of the dilemma, the gracious associates at the Residence Inn on Amelia Island got busy doing what they do best -- planning one of their unique and pristine beach weddings at one of the area's premier Fernandina Beach wedding venues. As a result, Danielle and Jeseh will celebrate their love with a beautiful seaside wedding at Burney Park in front of 70 of their closest friends and relatives and enjoy an elegant poolside reception on the opulent Tide's Terrace at the sophisticated Residence Inn Amelia Island hotel property. Establishing a commitment to provide a perfect wedding day that is financially burden-free for Danielle and Jeseh, the hotel's remarkable staff has designed the wedding reception to include beautiful white trellis, exotic flowers and a cozy fire pit to set the stage for a romantic ambiance that is sure to create lasting lifetime memories. Libations will be flowing thanks to the hotel's expert bartending staff; and of course there'll be a memorable champagne toast to the bride and groom.

Serving up delicious canapés butler style and a buffet of heavy hors d'oeuvres, including gourmet cheeses, mini quiche, grilled vegetables and caprese salad, wedding guests will not only be witness to the love shared by Danielle and Jeseh, but the ultimate in flawless event planning for Fernandina Beach events.

Setting the standard for extended-stay Amelia Island lodging, the Residence Inn offers an ideal location for intimate parties of 10 to 100 guests. Dedicated event managers and professional caterers combine with indoor and outdoor event space and stylish guest accommodations to provide a welcoming venue for celebrating with family and friends.
