Meg & Carter's Wedding

I had prepped and planned, ordered everything, arranged flowers, made wreaths, planted trees & flowers, scrubbed vases, secured tables & seating, made a map with the layout of food, candy, cake, gift and guest tables, found the photographer & the DJ, and everything else that goes in to planning a wedding reception at your home {including cleaning every single nook and cranny inside ~ on the off chance that the party needed to be moved indoors.} As luck would have it, May 22nd ended up being one of the windiest days of the year. Vases were crashing, tablecloths flying away in the wind, and not a single one of those little pinwheels could stand up against the {I think} 40mph wind that day.
We flew into plan B mode, brought all the food and most of the tables inside, did without the majority of the decor I spent so much time putting together, and had ourselves a great party. The food {made mostly by Debbie} was wonderful, the cake was beautiful, and the company couldn't have been better. It wasn't exactly what we had planned ~ but it still turned out to be a lovely, and lively evening!

We had lots of great help. Uncle Dave & Tamzen served the stromboli Emily made. Megan V. did whatever needed to be done, Annie & Carolyn helped with food prep, and Jen & Nan helped me all day to try and set up the decor {that blasted wind!}.

The wind finally started letting up around 8pm or so, and we headed out to get our groove on! That's when the party really got started! A great end to a stressful, exciting, beautiful, never forget it day! Congratulations Meg & Carter!

These are great photos from the wedding. Both bride and groom look very elegant in their attire. The location also seems amazing. One of the most important decisions while planning weddings is to select the appropriate venue. We are currently making arrangements for my daughter’s wedding and have been visiting many wedding venues to find the best one that suits us.
