Congratulations Asa and Chris

This wedding was, in a word, awesome!  After all, how many people have their wedding in a gazebo with a train behind it?  Definitely this couple, because Asa has always loved trains.  The ceremony was held outside and the weather was beautiful.  To announce the couple, two ring bearers and two flower girls walked down the aisle blowing train whistles. The couple exchanged vows they each wrote and they alternated between funny and touching.  Then, when they shared a kiss at the end of the ceremony, a train blew its whistle.   When the ceremony ended, guests got to take 15-minute rides on a train.  How’s that for unique?  Chris and Asa stayed on the train the whole time, visiting with their guests.

When the guests moved indoor, they found a unique guest book.  The guests took their pictures with a Polaroid camera and then clipped their pictures to a wood pallet.  There were also post cards of trains:  the guests wrote a note to the newlyweds on the back and dropped the cards into a box.

For the reception, the guests sat at tables that had trains as centerpieces.  When dinner was over, Asa and Chris cut their wedding cake.  It was three stacked tiers, each accented in colors of major train companies.  A railroad track ran around the bottom two tiers, and the tracks ended in a tunnel.  The cake topper had two grooms on it, one ridding piggyback on the other.  The cake was amazing!  For an elegant touch, we had amber uplights shining up the room’s pillars, giving off a golden glow.  The uplights allowed us to turn off the house lights, making a party atmosphere.  The dance floor lighting helped as well, encouraging guests to have fun on the dance floor.

When the reception ended, Chris and Asa ran through lines of guests waving glow sticks and shaking maracas before they drove off in a convertible.  It was the perfect ending for a perfect night.  Congratulations Asa and Chris and enjoy your honeymoon cruise!
