Being asked to locate a unique, one-of-a-kind, never-used-before wedding venue was not so much a challenge for our design team! We had catered and designed many events at the University Air Center in Gainesville, but we had yet to design a glamorous, fairy-tail like reception in the oldest and dustiest of hangars. To our creative event planners, this hangar has the most nostalgic, eclectic backdrop for events, and it’s a perfect evening when the hundreds of windows there are golden bronze and back-lit by the setting sun!
Thank you Wedding Chicks for the post, we had a fabulous time designing Hilary and Austin’s wedding!
I hope you find a personal place/space to capture your engagement in photos – don’t forget to have fun and show your true self!

Seat your guests at a LONG, CURVED, DINING TABLE? Looks like so much Fun!
Catering really is the funnest job ever. We throw parties, we feed people delicious food, we decorate.. and everyone knows how much fun putting up holiday decorations is! Getting to do this every day never gets old.
We sometimes get to wear costumes, every single day is different from the last, and we literally never know from week to week who and where we will be working.
Getting bored is not in the cards when you cater for a living. Time flies and the hard, hard work gets lost in the fun of the moment. When it’s raining or hot outside, or we have to unload a truck at midnight or wash dishes at 3am… it’s just part of the festivities. And, did we mention all the free food, snacks and leftovers we get to take home!
Gainesville has so many options for event venues, and Celebrations’ has catered in all of them. We know the ins & outs of each space…which has the best lighting, the most comfy chairs, the cleaneset restrooms and the coolest airconditioning…

Sometimes the “back-of-the-house” crew who slave over the ovens, chop hundreds of onions, and wash dishes until their hands shrink… get the least amount of credit. When our raving fans send us thankful notes they usually have no idea who actually prepared all their food. These are the guys that arrive to work early before daylight and never sit down during a shift, the guys that have amazing endurance to literally cook all day long, every day. They like their music loud, they drink lots of coffee, they never call in sick. They are amazing and they are the HEART of this company!
