VIRTUAL BABY SHOWER

2020 brought a new set of event management challenges. During the global pandemic, it was essential for event planning and management professionals to pivot while still providing memorable experiences for our clients.

Integrity Orchid was excited to plan and manage a virtual baby shower with a sweet theme. We partnered with JadeMarie Memories & Designs to create virtual baby shower kits that were mailed to our guests. The kit included a game booklet, pen, treats to snack on, and a blank card with a stamped envelope to send an encouraging message to our mom-to-be.

HILL-STEPHENSON

BRIDAL SHOWER, REHEARSAL, WEDDING, AND RECEPTION

A wedding day is a milestone event for clients and may be filled with stress and excitement! Planning and executing a wedding during a global pandemic adds a new layer of emotions for the clients, guests, and vendors.

Our 2020 couple had to revisit their original wedding plans and decrease their guest list, find a venue that was willing to host during a pandemic, and vendors able to serve. Integrity Orchid managed the weekend that started with an intimate bridal shower. We also assisted with the wedding rehearsal leading into the big day. The outdoor venue was perfect to allow guests to be socially distanced while sharing in a memorable day with masks. We were thankful to connect and work with many partners to make this a perfect day for our client.

DREAM ON PURPOSE

ANNUAL DINNER

Non-profit organizations faced many challenges in 2020. Like many businesses, they were forced to quickly pivot to virtual platforms to continue their work and raise funds.

IOC owner/founder, La'Kendra Garrison, serves on the board for Dream on Purpose and gladly donated time and service to assist with their 2020 annual dinner. Managing this in-person event in late 2020 required thoughtful consideration for the safety of everyone in attendance. La'Kendra worked with a local hotel that was able to provide a space for guests to socially distance themselves, enjoy a catered meal that was served behind sneeze-guard panels, and partake in a signature beverage mixed by the hotel bartender.

PARADISE PARK

GRAND OPENING

Many businesses were forced to operate with their employees working remotely for most of 2020. Some individuals need a change of scenery if their new office was at home.

Paradise Park Co-Work Space called on Integrity Orchid Consulting to help plan and manage an intimate grand opening celebration! This was a historic affair, as the owner is the first Black woman to open a co-work space in Gainesville, FL. We were elated to work with local vendors to create a celebratory atmosphere that allowed guests to see the space while they networked with one another.

Our values at Integrity Orchid are rooted in the ability to serve others. When our partners at Xposure Consulting Firm requested our assistance, we happily accepted the opportunity. 


Assisting Xposure Consulting with managing this inaugural affair was exciting! We helped with many day-of logistical items such as reception and event area set up, welcoming members, and program management. Thank you, Xposure, for thinking of IOC to help with this great event!
