We had the honor to go to one of our favorite local Port Orange Venues for Joanne and Michaels weddings. Take a look and enjoy this beautiful wedding ceremony and reception location.
Wedding Bouquets and Details
This wedding was designed with a lot of fun times with the couple.
For the ceremony, which was held in the Port Orange Chapel in the garden, we used blush, champagne and ivory satin sashes on the pews.
The cocktail hour was held in Snow Whites cottage and the surrounding garden. We brought in high top pub tables and used a sangria satin table linen with a champagne lamour sash for a creative, romantic look.
The tavern reception is where the romance and ambiance was created. For the guest table the couple rented our champagne classic linen, sangria satin table runners, gold plate chargers, sangria satin napkins and white chair covers in spandex accented with a double wrap sangria sash. For the centerpieces we used a lush premium white hydrangea, blush accent blooms and gold stones which tied in the bride and bridesmaids bouquets.For the welcoming tables we used a champagne crushed crinkle taffeta for soft accents. The sweetheart table wedding design was everything the bride was looking for. Using a satin sangria linen, we used and overlay created with a specialty linen in gold florets, gold plate chargers, sangria napkins, white chair covers, sangria satin chair sash and mercury glass votives with glass bubble pillars and LED candles. Behind the table they choose to rent our white drape collection to frame their table for photographs.

We will be happy to set up a time for you to tour the entire estate and learn a bit about our history. To maintain our client’s privacy there is no access to The Estate on the Halifax without a confirmed appointment. Our newest addition to The Estate on the Halifax is The Estate House, an early 1900′s grand home, perfect when desiring a vacation home or possibly a destination wedding site.
Originally constructed as a community center in Port Orange, this historic building was built in 1897 at the northeast corner of US-1 and Church Street. In 1913, the building was moved and for the next 84 years served as the Parish Hall for Grace Episcopal Church. When the church expanded in 1997, the building was once again moved, when it was given to Douglas J. Clark.
It took 18 months to completely renovate the Chapel. The century-old heart pine boards were removed, planed down, varnished and reapplied to the walls. The stained glass windows were also replaced. The barrel ceiling above the pulpit was designed and built by Chuck Gittner. Chuck and his brother, Craig designed and built the bell tower which houses the impressive bronze bell that was cast in Baltimore, Maryland in 1893 and weighs 1,050 pounds. The toll of the bell can be heard throughout the neighborhood and signifies a rebirth for a significant building with a proud local heritage.
The Chapel has grown to become a very successful wedding venue, one of the most popular in the Daytona Beach and Halifax area. The Chapel now hosts hundreds of weddings each year.
The Tavern was originally built as a residence in the 1920′s and for many years housed the “Pink House” antique store before it was purchased by the Clark Family in the 1980′s. The building became part of the Clark estate when it was moved 100 feet to the east in 1996. Douglas Clark, with the help of Chuck Gittner, built the large southerly addition. Much of the extensive wood work was done by James “Bo” Alvis. Atlas Welding built the extensive wrought iron stairs and railings.
The Tavern was opened in 2002 and serves as banquet and reception facility for the Chapel in the Gardens. Beverage and catering services are provided in-house, exclusively.
SNOW WHITE’S COTTAGE
This beautiful little cottage was hand built in the 1930′s by an engineer who owned the property. On one of his travels around the world he married a Japanese woman and when they arrived home he designed and built the beautiful koi ponds, gardens, and cottage. During the 1950′s the cottage was boarded up and left untouched and the ponds were filled and used as garden planting areas.
In 1994 the Clark’s purchased the property and with the help of Chuck Gittner, the ponds and streams were reconstructed and the Pump House and water wheel were built. This venue is also available for weddings, receptions and events of all types. This is the perfect place for children’s parties and has a storybook setting resembling the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarf’s tale.
The Tavern is available for corporate event, meetings, and banquets.

DON'T allow used or soiled linen:
Believe it or not, there are some linen providers that forgo washing linens after each use or properly caring for previous stains to cut down on cleaning cost. If you are booking $1.00 chair covers, you’re probably hiring this type of leading provider.
DON'T allow $1.00 chair covers
As tempting as it sounds. Just don’t do it. This saying “you get what you pay for” is absolutely true here. There is just no way to get quality chair covers and quality service if you are paying this much for your chair covers. It is mathematically impossible to charge $1.00 and be able to clean, press and care for your linens at this price. Your linen provider is either A) losing money, B) not washing or caring for the linens, C) all of the above. You will only end up paying a higher price in the end trying to fix mistakes and stressing out about it.
DON'T allow wrinkles
Call one sprinkles to be a part of your wedding day design? Nobody! Make sure you ask your linen provider how your linens and chair covers are handled in cared for. This includes chair covers, linens and sashes. A properly handle the linen will be essentially crinkle free except for very few board increases that are acquired during delivery on table linens and chair covers. Sashes should always be wrinkle and crease free. Otherwise this is what will stand out most.
DON'T allow damaged
Damages are another problem that can be ignored by some linen providers. If linens are not inspected after every use for damages, you will be the victim of ripped, cigarette burn, what’s covered linens on your big day.
DON'T allow mix and match
Ask your linen provider of the linens your booking are all me identically. You do not want to have half of your chairs covered in pattern A and the other half covered in pattern B. Eight goes the same for color and fabric. Unless you purposely mix and match the colors and fabrics for your theme, all must match and that your chairs properly.
Pick a seat not a side they will be hitched by high tide.
What a beautiful day for a wedding. We worked with Heather and Derek for over a wedding on their nuptials. There are so many great beaches around the Daytona Beach area to choose from. This couple had enjoyed Hiles Beach all of their life. It held a special place in their heart and was an easy selection for location.
Hiles Beach is located just south of New Smyrna Beach on A1A. There is ample parking by the beach ramp and easy access.
For the ceremony set up we used our Bamboo chuppah draped in green and white swag fabric organza. We adorned each corner upright with sea shell chandeliers. At the base of the poles we places seasonal tropical plants to help pull the look together and add a splash of color. At the top two corners we added some floral arrangements using the blooms from the brides bouquet in orchids.
For the aisle the bride cascaded down the beach stairs which provided the grand entrance she was looking for. What a great moment it was when Heather appeared at the top of the deck and was seen or the very first time. We scatter roses petals and orchids along the sides of the aisle and placed raffia wreaths with fresh orchids on the side of the chairs as pew markers. Beach elegance all of the way.
