I’ve recently had the honor or meeting Lara Kocerka of Declaration Boutique and Events in St Augustine. I’m all about supporting the local businesses in my area and it’s refreshing to have Lara on the local wedding scene. Every time I walk in her shop, I just look around and admire the great items she has.
As a wedding photographer, I love it when brides and grooms take the time to make their wedding really personal. Sure you can get married at a beautiful venue but if you really, really give it a little extra effort to add those little details that make your event truly unique, you and your guests will really notice. Or better yet, find a really simple venue and transform it with some of the great ideas that Lara has. She not only has really cool products but she is also an event designer. So if you’re like me and have no idea where to start when it comes to making an event beautiful, Lara can help you out in that department.
If you have not been into her boutique, you should definitely stop by. You will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. Declaration Boutique has been a vision of hers for several years and with the help of her family, it has finally come into fruition. Not only is each and every item very unique but so is the furniture that holds the items. I learned that most of the pieces have been hers and her family’s for years. So very cool!
These must be the cutest birthday hats around. The ring bearer bowls are so beautiful. I like that they can be multi functional as a ring bearer bowl on wedding day and a ring dish that you can leave by your sink for later. These neck ties and bow ties and so cute!If you walk in, this is what you’ll likely see. Lara also has a consultation area in back to help you create the perfect event. Her invitations are gorgeous!Not only does she have wedding stuff but some really cute baby gifts as well.If you’re having a photobooth at your wedding, the next items are a must have!
For all of those Starbucks fans, this next item is perfect for your shower or rehearsal dinner. Love it!And last but not least, meet Lara! She’s the mastermind behind all of these amazing ideas. If you’re on facebook, you can “like” the Declaration Boutique page here.
