A new way to partay

Living along the Emerald Coast, a lot of wedding ceremonies happen our stunning beaches.  Ya know, ’cause we live where you vaycay, so of course a beach wedding is the way to go! Maybe some of you are eye-rolling at the idea of a beach wedding. It’s okay, I feel ya. I’ve made it my mission this year to locate the coolest environments to host your uniquely-you wedding ceremony and reception. First on our list, is the newly opened music venue- Enlightened Studios. Located in the heart of Downtown Fort Walton, this event space is a cafe + music studio during the day, and a live music venue by night.

Let’s take a peek around the space, and check out my tips for styling the space below!

Enlightened Studios / Trendy + Moody event space

Super bold, black walls and wood floors create a blank canvas for an industrial and urban wedding space. Vintage instruments add to the acoustic ambiance, and the moody light in the concert hall keeps it cool and on-trend. What’s awesome is behind the venue is Fort Walton Beach Landing Park- the perfect spot for bridal party portraits.

How to: wedding day style

Picture the west wall framed with a neon wedding arch, lined with ghost chairs that allow the natural light to flood the entire room. Choosing a venue that allows you to customize the space to fit whatever style you enjoy is so great. You could go bold + bohemian, clean + coastal, or enlightened industrial- like the mood board I designed below.

Two spaces / Bold + Eclectic or Coastal + Inviting

Music venue meets coffee stop- walk through the event space to Enlightened Studio’s sweet coffee shop, open during the day for a hot or cold brew – caffeinated or spiked- coffee or spirits. The cafe is the perfect venue for your party to continue well into the night. Use the space for dinner and dancing- add a bold bohemian feel with some Persian rugs and cozy rattan furniture. Use one of Enlightened Studios talented bands that perform nightly for your reception entertainment!

All you need to do to cozy up the bar is add some wild greenery and cozy rugs. Pour some sangria and party on the back deck.  Check out my ideas for a warm and inviting reception space below!

Booking Enlightened Studios

What I love about this space, is that it is super customizable and affordable! Event fees are $250/hr, for a minimum of four hours. If you want an open bar, event fees are $500/hr, for a minimum of four hours. How cool is that?! Two vendors with one stone- venue and bar.

Consider this urban venue for your whimsical wedding day!
