What a great idea!

Star Fish Invites 2014

It’s unique tailor-made touches like these starfish place cards, seashell invitations, and guest books, to reception cameras and favors that can make a seaside or beach motif even more special.

Where are they?

Ceremony 2 Clean

Those loved ones who have traveled a great distance need to be taken into consideration when organizing your wedding agenda. After all they came to be part of your special day and you don’t want to miss out on spending as much time with them as possible. Consider having your ceremony in the same location as your reception. Doing this will allow you more time spent with family and friends who have traveled and find themselves in unfamiliar territory and you don’t want to have them getting frustrated or even lost. Don’t spend your time sitting in traffic and leaving Aunt Betty feeling shorted when looking for parking. We have plenty of free parking. The Milano room provides the perfect location for an intimate wedding that can range from 150 people down to 50.

Daniel graduated from the world renowned Traphagen School of Fashion in New York City in 1975 and immediately went to work in Boston for the well-known ‘Priscilla of Boston’, under the direct tutelage of Jim Hjelm. Daniel returned to New York City where he was promoted to head bridal designer at Pandora Frocks. He later designed for Aria Bridals, Jena Bridals, Marina Bridals, Bill Levkoff, and Galina.

Daniel has spent the last 20 years establishing his own internationally known company, designing custom bridal, mother-of-the-bride, Communion and Christening Gowns, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, evening and Debutante gowns. Daniel is well-known in the Jewish community for catering to the need for modest designs. His collection has been available at Kleinfeld in New York City, Adrienne’s Bridal in New York City and many other NY Bridal Salons including Bridal Couture in Manhasset, Fontana Bridals in Scarsdale, Bridal Couture in Staten Island, Brides by the Falls, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, The Collection in Winter Park, Fl., and as far away as London and Tokyo.

Daniel has recently moved his design studio to St. Augustine, Fl., in the Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra area, and he continues to travel the Atlantic Coast offering traditional and contemporary designs. All of Daniel’s gowns are custom made, thus each bride’s individual personality is represented throughout the design process. Daniel’s philosophy has always been “a one-of-a-kind bride deserves a one-of-a-kind dress.
