Friends and family came together to celebrate and shower Sarah H. with love and gifts for her upcoming wedding. The rustic themed bridal shower was decorated with lace covered mason jars, wood disks, and burlap. Many bridal shower games were played and bridal gowns were creatively made out of toilet paper. Cocktails Catering provided light hors d’oeuvres and an ice cream cake from ColdStone Creamery was enjoyed.
Madelyn is OBSESSED with the book Little House on the Prairieby Laura Ingalls Wilder, so the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek was obviously the perfect venue for her to host her 8thbirthday party! The afternoon partied weathered some light rain while they did Seminole Beading Crafts, learned a lot on a guided tour of the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek, and even churned their own butter in mason jars!
The Replica Train Depot, Citrus Packing House, and Tyson Cracker Style House provided the perfect backdrop for Anouar S.and his team of two actors. The team filmed a riveting stunt-fight scene for a teaser trailer that they’re creating for their independent film.

Three weddings were hosted between the 1800s Replica Historic Church, the Pavilion at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek and the Buster Kenton Room at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. Each of the brides and grooms said “I DO” in the chapel with 50 guests in attendance. Rachel Crundwell and Chris DaSilva held a whimsical, rustic themed wedding with a gorgeous mini birch tree decorated wedding cake from Cut The Cake. Samantha W. and Luis P. held a goth-style purple themed reception at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. The guests danced the night away amongst purple up lighting and an incredible selection of music. William S. and Angelica C.’s wedding was a simple, yet elegant affair hosted on a date that was special to them – 8/17/18.
