Congratulations Derek and Lindy

This wedding incorporated some of the couple’s loves, from the outdoors (camo vests and ties on the guys and an outdoor ceremony) to alcohol (bottles with baby’s breath for the centerpieces) to country music (western boots on the Bridal Party).  The colors for the day were red and champagne and were carried out in the dresses and linens.  The tables had ivory floor-length cloths with gold chargers and red napkins, and the head table had lace overlays

After the First Dance and dinner, we moved on to the toasts and cake cutting.  Lindy’s cake had four white stacked tiers, each with a red ribbon at the base.  Each tier had white scroll designs on it and the topper consisted of the couple’s last initial and their names.  Derek’s chocolate cake looked like a giant Jack Daniels bottle and everyone loved it!

One really cute thing they had at this wedding was a kissing booth.  They had it stocked with disposable cameras so guests could take photos inside the booth and Derek and Lindy could enjoy the photos later.  We’ve never seen a kissing booth at a wedding before!

Later after lots of dancing, the Bouquet and Garter and the Last Dance, the night came to a close.  The Newlyweds ran through their guests waving glow sticks before they left for their new life together.  Congratulations Derek and Lindy!

Happy Birthday Lorraine

What a great 50th birthday party!  Lorraine had 80 of her closest family members and friends join her for a fun evening with a delicious buffet, a gorgeous cake, a candy buffet, and an Elvis impersonator.  Elvis didn’t just lip-sync: he actually sang, and he sang well!  He did an almost hour-long set that impressed everyone.  The room was decorated beautifully with alternating black and white sparkle linens and centerpieces of candles.  After dinner, Elvis’ show, and singing of Happy Birthday, we moved onto the dance portion of the evening and guests danced the night away.  What a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone birthday.  Happy birthday Lorraine!
