Find the Perfect Touch … Maybe Even Something New or Blue at the Garces Events Wedding Showcase

Story, photos by Dana J. Prophet

Everyone knows a wedding is The Big Day for the couple soon to be wed. The real challenge is to make it the event of the season without suffering cold feet and the anxiety breakdown of the couple’s love from wedding-planning stress.

The Garces Events Wedding Showcase invites the newly engaged to a fun affair where brides and grooms can find everything to make the day exactly how you wish it and with a little help from some new friends. No matter if you pre-planned your wedding from childhood or would like to make your guests always remember the day, The Garces Group is there to make your wishes into reality.

Located at the Cira Centre Atrium at JG Domestic, the Showcase provided attendees the opportunity to actually sample the always exceptional cuisine from The Garces Group. Brides, grooms, family members, and friends traveled to and from each of the restaurant-themed stations (Amada, Distrito, Garces Trading Co., JG Domestic, The Olde Bar, Tinto, Village Whiskey, and Volvér) and tasted the exquisite dishes all without leaving the Cira Centre.

During the event, if attendees booked their wedding of 150 people or more at the Cira Centre, Garces Events waived the $3,000 site fee. Those couples sipped a flute of champagne at the time of booking and were congratulated by the event’s emcee.

Expect a perfect day with Garces Events, the team who is recognized by The Knot Best of Weddings for 2014, 2015 and 2016.
