May 17th was a somewhat emotional affair. Health issues had played a role in the timing of this wedding. As a result we felt particulary attached to seeing this wedding happen and truly wish only the best to this wonderful couple - okay maybe I am tired and maybe I am getting too emotional.... Guests arrived to champagne and .. sparkling water at this cocktail style event
just one of the stations you could stop at and rest for a sec. Peter and Drew at Blooms did the floral work with East and Main doing dinner. We served wines from our bar - an open bar at that - and with the band featuring many friends of the bridal couple playing through the evening which took on a wonderful life of its own. But I am ahead of myself - the ceremony took place in the barn.
a bit of a cool spring we had extra heat in place
and in this picture we have another view of the set-up
Wishing all the best we were John and Pam, Livvy and Kiersten, Elizabeth and Lynne onh and me...
May 10th - more than a month ago was a lovely day here. The ceremony was in the sheepshed.
and then the cocktail hour started between the barn and sheepshed with our giant jenga.
and it worked well - one drink , one piece of jenga moved and so it went. In the barn the head table was as below
and the tables were ste up as below
everyone found their seats easily enough with this seating chart
dinner was brilliantly prepared by East and Main
their catering trailer has been a huge help for them. Meanwhile our tractor was employed for the wedding and I always love showing pictures of it
Hmmm distracted by the tractor...dinner was served with Sandbanks Baco Noir and Sauvignon Blanc East and Main did grilled cheese sandwiches as the late night and our Stagepas 500 was used for the dance which was great (because may people stayed late - our best indicator that things went well).
Best wishes to Allison and Matthew from Libby, Lynne, John and Pam, Elizabeth and Me.
Good morning dear readers;
So the season started here May 3rd. Brittany and Justin got married offsite and when they arrived we had a Sangria punch and a non alcoholic cider punch waiting for them.
The evening progressed with a busy cash bar.
Best wishes to Brittany and Justin from Pam and John, Lynne, Kirsten, Eliabeth and Livvy and me...final word to the father of the bride who was kind enough to say: 'It was such a beautiful day, you did an absolutely wonderful and professional job in every aspect, your venue and home were gorgeous, your staff and efforts to keep it (the barn) warm and comfortable were fantastic and appreciated' and thus ended our first wedding for 2014...cheers!
