Unique business creates picnics and more for wedding parties

By Shaun Ryan

Luxe Picnics by Les offers alternatives to the traditional wedding reception, something that can be especially desirable for an elopement.

“We are unique,” said business owner Leslie Diaz. “We are one of a kind.”

The luxury pop-up picnic and grazing company offers a variety of options for couples. Among the selection, perhaps the Bohemian-style picnic best suits wedding parties of a dozen or fewer people.

These can be set up indoors or outdoors, at the beach, at a park, in the backyard or in the living room. Included are grazing boxes for the guests. Depending upon the location, add-ons are available, including wine from Amelia Liquors, a sunset couples’ horse ride, a limousine ride to the picnic, a photographer to capture the event, games, French sodas, rose petals and more.

“It’s a pretty cool concept,” said Wayne Guest, who provides horseback rides and photography.

Luxe Picnics by Les offers four packages but also can accommodate special themes and colors.

In addition, Luxe Picnics has an arrangement with several vendors who can help make the day special. These include a nondenominational wedding officiant, gowns, rings and jewelry, hats, flower arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres, videography, wedding cake and desserts, a personal chef and hair and make-up artists.

But the service is not limited to picnics. Luxe Picnics by Les also does event catering with grazing cups, cones and glasses, grazing tables and charcuterie boards.

Beyond these services, Luxe Picnics can offer private wine and whiskey pairings, ‘build a board’ parties and more.

Though Luxe Picnics by Les is headquartered in Nassau County and some services are limited to the Amelia Island area, it serves residents of St. Johns, Duval, Clay and Nassau counties in Florida and Camden and Glynn counties in Georgia.
