For the ceremony seating, a combination of Matilda and Ollie velvet chairs were used with accent throws and pillows. The architecture of the house really creates the perfect spot for any intimate wedding or elopement. All-together the ceremony space turned out phenomenal.

Weddings at the Eisenhower House are generally located on the lawn under a tent; however, the inside works for smaller events and weddings.

"I cannot express how easy and beautiful Sweetly Designed Events made our wedding! I had a vibe in mind at the beginning of planning and they made it a reality. From the rentals to the seating chart to the florals they made it all happen. Our wedding was truly spectacular and it was very much due to them. Also, I can not say enough about Amanda's flexibility as we navigated the whole process. She had all the details down before I even had to ask. I would (and am) recommending them to everyone I know!

"You NEED Them for Your Wedding!"

- Natalie lopez

"A vision turned into a reality ! From the very beginning Amanda made wedding planning a breeze! A team of many trades. Planning during a pandemic isn’t easy but Amanda was always kind and patient with us. After many emails and one walk through, I was confident our wedding was in great hands. She works one-on-one through every single detail, she is more than just a business. She provided rentals, floral and event design for us. She created a beyond memorable and beautiful day for us! She was quick to change plans after we had to move our ceremony indoors and had great communication with us and our venue. I can’t fathom enough how amazing everything was. Please don’t hesitate to hire them! Thank you so much for everything and look forward to working with you again!"

"A Vision Turned Into Reality"

- Josephine riley

"We contacted Amanda a few months before our wedding for help with all the last-minute details and changes we needed for our wedding day. Amanda was able to jump in right away and start helping me and my fiancé. There were so many things we did not have planned or knew we needed but she helped us get everything figured out and took a huge amount of stress off of us. Our wedding day was even more amazing, we did not have to worry about anything, and best of all our family and friends loved everything including the many floral arrangements she made as well as the decor items we borrowed. We are so happy we made the decision to get a coordinator, everything ran so smoothly and we had a fantastic wedding because of Amanda. Thank you so so much!!!"
