Spotlight on Knot Today Wedding Chapel - Affordable Do it Yourself Weddings! - Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Weddings have been practiced for centuries as a public display of love and union between two people who are joining each other’s life journey.  There are many traditions passed down through generations that can be seen practiced in modern cultures, such as the bride carrying a bouquet, the groomsmen and bridal party, the garter belt and lots of dancing and drinking. These practices have become more elaborate and expensive as new traditions are added to the celebration of love.

In Second Life, real world traditions do not always apply when couples can get married wherever and however they want using their own imagination and unique style.  There are many wedding venues in SL that offer a variety of packages that can range from 2,500L to 25,000L  and that doesn’t include the perfect attire and rings!
Knot Today Wedding Chapel is a do-it- yourself venue that is affordable but presents couples with top notch romantic scenes.  Hassle free planning is one of the reason couples are choosing KTWC. 

The SL Enquirer met up with jadey Ðragon (jadeylynn resident) to learn more about having the perfect wedding day and all the things you want for an easy, fast and stress free planning experience.

Interview with jadey Ðragon

SLE:  Jadey, I have to to say the venues are beautifully designed. You created a  place for couples to experience a perfect wedding. What inspired you to create Knot Today Wedding Chapel?

jadey Ðragon: Price! My SL wedding to Pen was over the top, and really quite stressful. From going over color schemes, to picking a concert band rather than the everyday DJ, I just didn’t care. I wanted to start my life with my partner, in a nice place, and what color the flowers were meant nothing to me. Yet, 25k later, I only remember the day for how much money we dropped and how much stress we were under. That shouldn’t be a memory!

SLE: I agree! For just 300L what can couples expect when they arrive at KTWC?

jadey Ðragon: A beautiful, stress free, easy to do wedding that will allow the memories to be about the two of them and not how much money they spent. Instead of the package deal that usually includes things you don’t really need, this is ala carte. You don’t need it, you don’t have to have it. If you want it, it can be done. There are no high pressured salesman IM’ing you the minute you land. Don’t get me wrong, anything within reason can be accommodated but that’s not really our target audience.

SLE: With Summer in full swing, I’m sure you are seeing an increase in unintended wedding crashers lol. To avoid overlapping weddings, what advice can you give couples who want to book a date?

jadey Ðragon: That’s just it, you don’t even have to book a date with us. You can show up in your pajamas in the middle of the night and runoff into the sunrise. With a 10-15 minute wedding it rarely, if ever, overlaps.

SLE: It sounds like everything is going great. Are there any rules couples should know about using the venues?

jadey Ðragon: The only really strong rule we ask is that you don’t linger if another party is waiting to go next. It doesn’t happen often, the officiant is quick, but sometimes people linger for photos or the drinks that are provided and that’s ok, just don’t interrupt the next party.

SLE:  Do you make the venue private for guests who want to ensure no wedding crashers disrupt their special moment?

jadey Ðragon: Upon request, absolutely. We’ll also turn voice on to allow them to have their ceremony that way was well. All you have to do is ask.

SLE:  What other types of weddings do you accommodate?

jadey Ðragon: Other than the traditional wedding ceremonies we also have a secret garden located below that provides an automated Collaring Ceremony for those in the BDSM lifestyle. There were 2 reasons for adding this to the venue. The first reason was that many new people to the lifestyle don’t know where to begin with a collaring ceremony in SL, so they usually skip the ceremony altogether and have very little memory of it happening at all. The second reason was, of course, personal to my heart and it needed to be part of my business as my business is part of me.

SLE: You cover everything lifestyle by offering traditional, customization and even collaring ceremonies.   For Elopements and weddings on the fly, how can they DIY their service?

jadey Ðragon: Everything you need is completely provided! You have the tradition walk down the aisle, the awkward stand as the officiant reads the vows, and the most important, a kissing pose. When the wedding is complete, the poses to walk back down the aisle together is also provided. All you have to do is show up, make a small payment and follow directions.

SLE: All of that for only 300L! Do you offer packages?

jadey Ðragon: No. Everything is ala carte available, but that’s not really what this chapel was designed for. If you need a photographer, videographer, DJ etc. it can be done but our target audience are more the ones who are not looking for fluff or high-end extras.

SLE: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers about Knot Today Wedding Chapel & Studio?

jadey Ðragon: Just because we want you to do it yourself, doesn’t mean you have too. If you need help we’re available, but we won’t try to sell you anything or talk you into spending more money. We’re very approachable people and wanting to truly make your day special.

SLE:I wish Knot Today Wedding Chapel much success! How do you prefer to be contacted for special reservations and requests?

jadey Ðragon: Drop a notecard, I do not ever want anyone to feel as if they’re being neglected or ignored and IMs sometimes get capped.

Ballrooms : Where the Romance Lives - Seersha Heart

“In one kiss, you’ll know all I haven’t said”; Pablo Neruda.  In Second Life, a date at a ballroom is a romantic adventure. It all the romance in one stop; the kisses and the dances of a well-earned night out.  I spend time in ballrooms during the year. This past year has been the most dramatic changes in my SL history. SL has lost two of the top ballrooms in the past year.  One of those was the lovely Rose Theatre Ballroom. In its day, if you asked anyone for the best ballroom “Rose Theatre” was either the first or the second one mentioned.  Angel Manor was a cultural hub of art and performance that is missed. Bogart’s is another loss to the grid. To me, losing Bogarts hurt badly. You could always could on Bogarts.  The walk through the shops to the marquee. At Bogarts you could have the formal stylish surroundings of a traditional ballroom, with an atmosphere that welcomed the single as well as the couples.  

SL has retained a couple of “tried and true” ballrooms.  Each providing different opportunities to the visitor. I recommend visiting these ballrooms at different times.  Each one that I am writing about has a wealth of fun to discover provided by the thoughtful and the clever owners.  And as is always true of SL, things change…..a….lot. One of those tried and true is the Avilion ballroom.  Formal dress required, clothing provided, this continues to be a place of magic and of romance.  I find that when I truly want the most romantic possible evening, of all the places on the grid, you will find me at Avilion.  Sometimes I visit alone, walking through, watching other dancers or dance alone. This is a peaceful place with rich colors and lighting that dances around you.  It is a delight to hear romantic music playing, as I ascend the main staircase to the ballroom. There are a couple of nice couples poses along the way. Inside walk to the railing and the ballroom opens in front of you in all directions.  I recommend sunset or midnight lighting. Let your eyes swept the view for a moment, it is in a word spectacular. The older stationary dance pose balls have been replaced with easy to use dance balls and dance hearts. The real magic in this location is that even though you are immersed grand beautiful ballroom, when you look to your date you will realize that he/she is the true beauty in this room.  Simply magical. After the dancing, when you take your date home, if you are not rewarded with the delicious naughty parts, after an evening at Avilion, it will NEVER happen.  This ballroom is the litmus test for a relationship.

Frank’s Place Jazz Club provides different settings for a formal night out.  With Bogarts gone, there remains the Jazz Club and the Elite Jazz Club.  Beyond the sexy sounding jazz, Frank’s hosts DJs and cover band concerts.  I always think of SL Resident and living large personality Johnathan Hiess when I visit Frank’s.  Jonathan is the grid’s cutting edge to music; at Frank’s he DJs, he produces cover band concerts and generates quite a following.  If you are luck to see him in his military dress, that is just a bonus. Frank’s is a place you may meet Mr. Right Now if not Mr. Right.  It is enjoyable to be in a vast room of avis donning their best clothing. Pan your camera around, use your free What is She Wearing HUD and see who is designing these outfits.  See someone who interests you? Go ahead and IM them, that is what people DO at Frank’s so meet, chat and dance.  
Foxxies ballroom and Jazz club is a treat.  Beyond the elegant ballroom you will find a hot air balloon ride and a horse drawn carriage.  Explore and be rewarded at this gem. Foxxies has been on the grid for well over nine years. The traffic is lower here than Frank’s so if you want to have some snuggle up, one-on-one time with that special person try the atmosphere at Foxxies.  They also have DJs, music, romantic gardens, waterfalls and several romantic cuddle spots.

How would you like to enjoy some 40s swing dancing?  Teleport to the Creationspark SIM.  This is the SIM created to facilitate knowledge and support for Parkinson’s disease.  None of those limitations of the physical realm in the CP Swing Dance Hall.  A bit more casual that most ballrooms, this one sits in a SIM chock full of things to do beyond dancing.  Start at the main center and you can visit an art gallery and many interesting boutiques for shopping. In the beach and yacht areas you will find romantic hot tubs, sailboats, row boats, windsurfers and more water activities.  There are swimming animations, tubes and a waterslide. Bring your free Dutchie’s wearable towel to dry off.  Explore the vast expanse of the underwater paradise.  Truly vivid colors and interesting sea life to be found throughout.  I love the underwater paradise! Finish your visit at the Celestial Realm visiting the Spiritual Circles in the sky.
There are some other great places for an elegant night out on the grid.  Phat Cats Jazz Club Ballroom has a very romantic feeling and host live music.  Regency ballroom is one of those that provides clothing for those who don’t have a formal outfit.  A nice up and comer ballroom, I hope they get more traffic to enjoy what the offer to the visitor.  Many of the ballrooms on the Second Life search are not at their locations any more. Before that special date, make sure the ballroom exists before going out.  Save yourself the last minute fumble of finding a replacement location.

Take a moment and sift through your messy inventory.  Do you have a couple nice formal outfits? It is worth the time to make a couple.  It is a great treat to go out in SL to a nice romantic ballroom where in the arms of that special someone you may lose yourself, if only for a while, life can be magic, let it.

Spotlight on Everlasting- A Sim Featuring Everlasting Love Wedding Services and Latitude Landing Romantic Waterfront Dining at its Best in Second Life- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

In Second life there are plenty of breathtaking landscapes to explore and a variety of activities that cater to many interests. For those looking for the perfect place to say your “I Do’s” or go on a romantic date, Everlasting Sim is the place to go.
Owned and operated by єσηα (leona.kitty) and Lizzybright who brought their business expertise together to bring residents of Second Life a full service sim.  Lizzybright is a Wedding Service provider offering not only on Sim full service weddings but off sim wedding services as well.  єσηα is a live full service restaurant owner who caters to romantic dinners, business lunches, family dinners, special events, catering, pretty much anything you can think of. She will cater to your specific needs and will bring your special RP dining experience to life.
Another exciting event coming  is The new TV Station OffBeat has asked єσηα to be the primary sponsor for their new dating show "Heart to Heart" which means all dates will come to Latitude Landing Restaurant and be filmed!
The SL Enquirer met up with єσηα (leona.kitty) to learn more about Everlasting Sim

Interview with єσηα (leona.kitty) and Lizzybright

Wedding Venues and Restaurants have been in Second Life since its early days.  They are a great for, of course, getting married as well as gatherings with friends or spending some private time with your significant other while involving some role-play for authenticity. What inspired Latitude Landing Restaurant and Everlasting Love Wedding Services and what makes it unique from other romantic venue locations in Second Life?

єσηα: I grew up in the "theme park" industry and my work ethic is all about providing exceptional guest service every time. So I wanted to bring that into SL and incorporate that into something that I thought was a great idea. I have seen so many couples meet in Second Life over the years and some go on to real life relationships. But during those times they live states or even countries apart, why not provide them with the most realistic dating experience possible?
Lizzybright: I have always wanted to do weddings in SL and creativity is one of my strongest suits. I love to make people happy and what better way to do all of that than custom weddings? I believe that Everlasting Love Weddings is unique because we really go above and beyond to make every single wedding unique and totally customized so it is not like any other wedding.

When was Everlasting Sim established and what type of  services do you offer your guests?

єσηα: Although we both have several years of experience in what we do, we each launched our businesses in March of 2016. We ended up meeting in July and chose to join forces and bring both businesses to one sim and work with each other in August. The greatest thing about both of our businesses is that we personalize the experience to meet the guest’s requests. Down to the flowers, fireworks, candles, banners, music... you name it, we provide it! We both seem to run off of the same ethics and focus on the best guest service you can imagine.

How long does the role-play experience normally last?

єσηα: A typical dinner usually lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour. But again, we personalize each experience and if we have guests that want to go faster or slower, we will accommodate.
Lizzybright: A wedding can last as little as 15 minutes but the planning that goes behind it is where we really become involved in the process. We can realistically plan a wedding in a day but prefer to have a few weeks so we can have time to add all of those special touches.

What are the options you have available?

єσηα: We currently have tables set up for 2 or 4 guests in private gazebos. We also have an indoor area for larger parties or business meetings. As well we do Special events and catering, such as wedding rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, office luncheons, birthday parties.... really any occasion you can think of and again, we personalize the entire experience and set up to the guests needs.
Lizzybright: We have 6 different Wedding Packages for couples to choose from as well as Additional Services. And even with the purchase of a wedding package we still make sure that we assist the couple the best we can by making everything as customizable as possible. We also offer over 20 wedding venues and do custom builds as requested.

Do guest have to make a reservation to experience the full experience at Everlasting Sim?

єσηα: While we do highly recommend reservations, if a server is available, we can accommodate walk ins. Guests will typically purchase a gift card for the dinner of their choice (2 or 4 guests) and then fill out a reservation request card and drop that in our mailbox. We get back to them within 24 hours to confirm. But again, if the guest is a walk in, they can check our online indicators to see if we have an available server online. During holidays we suggest reservations to reserve the table.
Lizzybright: We do have the capability to do a walk in “Elopement” if the correct staff members are available. But yes of course we need a guest to book in advance so we can have the proper time to plan and put together a dream wedding.

What are your hours of Operation and who can guests contact for reservations?

єσηα: We do not have set hours of operation as we understand that people from all over the world are in Second Life. This is why we do our best to hire servers from all time zones and have their online indicators set up to help guests at any time, day or night. As well, we have Management online indicators up as well. There are very few times you will not find at least a few of us online.
Lizzybright: No set hours of operation and we have the ability to do a wedding anytime, day or night. We have online indicators set up so guests can contact us at any time.

What are the packages you offer and pricing? Do they include a tip?

єσηα: We currently only have 2 basic dinner packages. Each are three course meals. (For a party of 2 $500L and For a party of 4 $900L) The dinner packages do not include a tip so we respectfully ask that the guests take care of their servers.
Lizzybright: We have 6 Wedding Packages that range from $2000L up to $28500L. The packages have loads of great items included and the couple can choose exactly what they need.

This service would make a perfect wedding or engagement gift for a couple.  Do you offer gift certificates?  If so, how can guests redeem them for services?

єσηα: Yes! This is absolutely a fantastic gift to give the new couple! All of our gift cards are transferable so anyone can come by, purchase one and give it to someone as a gift.
Lizzybright: We have actually just started including a complimentary dinner at Latitude Landing in some of our Wedding Packages so the new couple can go enjoy a dinner during their honeymoon.

Can you share with our readers what a typical Wedding and fine dining experience would be like?

єσηα: The guests are greeted at the Front entrance of the restaurant and escorted to a private gazebo on the water. Once seated the server will go over a quick explanation of what will take place and takes the drink orders. After returning with the drinks, the server follows with the appetizers, main dish and dessert. During this entire experience the server is providing exceptional guest service accompanied with their best role play experience. And example of this might be: "Leona peeks in hoping not to intrude and begins to gather up the plates and sets them off to the side as she sets down the Main Dish.. "How where the appetizers?" ... Do you both need another drink?" She smiles as she asks."
After the dinner service is complete the guests are welcome to dance on the docks over the water while listening to special music they might have requested or watching fireworks they requested.
Lizzybright: From the moment a couple walks in the front door they feel welcomed and cared for. We answer every question that they have and try to get to know the couple a bit so we can be able to offer venues that would interest them. Once the couple has shared that information we show them a few venues until they find the perfect one and we then discuss colors, flowers, etc. Once the couple has booked a wedding with us, they will complete an information form which helps our wedding coordinators to put together the wedding of their dreams. The wedding coordinator and owner will oversee the entire process step by step all the way through until the reception is over. Making the entire experience not only as stress free for the couple but a memory that will last forever.

What type of entertainment do you provide for your guests?

єσηα: With each Reservation Request form the guest has a section where they can request "anything" and entertainment is something they could possibly request but some items may be an additional charge.
Lizzybright: We will include any type of entertainment that the couple would like to have as a part of their wedding.

Do you offer live music or DJ’s that cater to Special parties and Receptions?

єσηα: We have actually been looking into Live Music on sim but this would probably be something that would be offered during holidays when the restaurant is busiest or upon special request.
Lizzybright: We have several DJs on staff that stream during our weddings and receptions. We also have the capability to offer Live music upon request.

Keeping a Wedding venue and restaurant open and available to residents in every time zone can be a challenge, do you have a full staff on hand or are you currently hiring?
єσηα: Yes, as I mentioned earlier, we make it a point to hire staff from all around the world to help cover most hours. While this is not always possible, we do our very best. And we are always open to hiring the right people and we always keep an application box up.

Is there anything else about Everlasting Love Wedding Services & Latitude Landing Restaurant that you would like to share with our readers?

єσηα: If you are dating someone special and looking for a fun and realistic experience or even if you want to help others to have a great night out, we are the place to help with that. As well, any special events, staff parties, family dinners... we do it all.
Lizzybright: Our packages are some of the most competitive in the market and we promise to give each couple the best and most customized experience they could possibly ask for.

Visit  Everlasting Sim and experience the best in Wedding Services and  fine dining in Second Life for yourself!
