South Florida is home to many talented Black-owned wedding and event companies that can bring your dream celebration to life. To showcase the stunning work of these party vendors, PartySlate reached out to KeAira Chantell Gamble of KeAira Chantell Events and Natalie Thames of Déjà vu Sweets for help creating a list of Black event professionals in the South Florida region as a resource for party hosts and consumers.
Natalie shares how important it is “to provide a spotlight on the many talented Black event professionals across South Florida. Whether it’s a boudoir session, wedding production, or a cake to enjoy with loved ones — we have the talent, beauty, and creativity to fit your needs.”
KeAira adds, “The wedding and events industry, just like many industries, isn’t as diverse and inclusive as it should be, especially when you consider its consumers. Black people spend a lot of money and set a lot of trends in this industry. Therefore, the Black event professionals who play pivotal roles in executing these events deserve to be recognized.”
She goes on to add, “Although there have been pledges and efforts made the past year to spotlight Black talent, creating permanent spaces and lists will help prove that those weren’t just performative acts for a short period of time.”
Both KeAira Chantell Events and Déjà vu Sweets continue to elevate the work of other talented Black event professionals in the industry every day.
“I believe the best way to elevate the work of other Black event professionals,” KeAira shares, “is by providing them with opportunities to showcase their talent. I am intentional about collaborating with Black creative partners on my events as well as referring Black event professionals for projects.”
“Truly to sum it up,” Natalie adds, “provide Black event vendors the opportunity to showcase their talent.”
