OCHS Venue Recap

Posted by Maggie Ferrara on Jan 28, 2019 7:00:00 AM

With the weather cooling down in the last quarter of 2018, ten private events were hosted between the Buster Kenton Room at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum and the Pavilion and grounds of Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. The weather proved to be perfect for the many events hosted in the Pavilion at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek.

 The guests attending the Osceola High School class of 1973 class reunion swapped stories and spent time amongst the exhibits at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. The guests enjoyed BBQ from Meat-N-Fire, a local company founded by their classmate.

 Two Mothers-To-Be were showered with love and laughter in the Buster Kenton Room for their baby showers.

Family members of Morgan McIntee showered her with a "Handy Man Tool" party at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum in the Buster Kenton Room. The room was decorated with toy hammers, drills, bolts and nuts. Lunch was catered by Big John's Rockin BBQ and cookies in the shape of tools were the main focus of the dessert table.

Three weddings were hosted at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. Two of the weddings, Kasie & Ian’s and Josh & Stephanie’s ceremonies were held in the 1800s Historic Replica Church. Few decorations were done in the church due to its natural beauty. Alisha and Joey got married in front of the Historic Barn. Their wedding party walked down the porch of the Lanier House. They included their son in a sand ceremony celebrating the combining of their family.

 Each of the wedding receptions were held in the Pavilion at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek.

 Purple was the theme of Kasie & Ian’s wedding. S’mores kits were handed out as favors for “S’more love” for their guests.

 Josh and Stephanie had a blue motif and their cake was swirled with the in-style Ombre blue rosette piped frosting.PV Wedding Cake

 Alisha and Joey decorated with customized wood disks celebrating their wedding date and simple mason jars with a gorgeous tree inspired cake. Neither the dance floor nor guests’ cups were ever empty, thanks to the Danny and his DJ services and Dave’s team of bar tending services.

 Nicole and Mike celebrated their mother’s birthday as well as their rehearsal dinner in the Buster Kenton Room with great music and themed costumes. Everyone looked phenomenal!

 Two training seminars were hosted by local businesses using the smart board and set-up in the Buster Kenton Room. A Young Living consultant hosted a direct sales event where guests were able to sample her oils for sale. Using the tables and chairs provided by OCHS, they were able to display their products nicely for their guests. A two-day seminar was held as well for real estate professionals for their continuing education.

 Overall, guests were thrilled to attend the events in such unique, beautiful settings and many comments were overheard from the attendees about how much fun they had looking at the displays they were able to enjoy during the events. Many of the wedding attendees at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek loved the open space available for their children to run and play during the reception.
