Dear Readers - it has been some time since we wrote our last blog. Here we are re-telling one of the weddings we already blogged about. That being said the photographers for this wedding just sent us some photos we thought we might share with you. Clearly Jenn and David are much better at this than we do when we rush about at our last moment...(but still before we are fully set-up). Here is how the shep shed looked with our white chairs..admitedly you can hardly see them...
This wedding featured a significant set-up. Normally we budget 15-20 hours per hundred guests - this one was over 30. Two trailers of items with multiples of additional items brought in by car made this a rather complex wedding set-up. That being said our photos don't quite cover the extent of the activities leading up to this wedding. Our tractor and wagon brought the bridal party to the pondsite. The site was decorated with wine barrels and french doors the bridal party walked through. Guests then moved to the area behind the barn where a cigar bar had been set-up in the sheepshed, our giant jenga was also set-up as was a bean bag toss and our canoe full of Mill Street Organic, Canadian and Palm Bay coolers. We added Coors lite, Moosehead and more Palm Bays for a very thristy crowd. There was a lemondae stand as well featuring a hard and soft lemonade...and it all looked a bit like this - oh and we served popcorn from the sheepshed and it was well recieved. Bill and Marnie from the Beck and Call had their staff circulating with appetizers too.
So its June 20th and a lovely, earnest, young couple got married here at our pondsite.

and the ceremony proceeded with Blooms providing the floral work. Colours in the barn centred on blue.

behind the barn things were set up for guests to mingle and try a blue non alcoholic drink delivered by a fountain - which I missed photographing. East and Main catered dinner. The bar was closed when we served the couples wine with dinner. It was well recieved and nicely labelled.
The Candy table featured blue candies and the blue theme carried on to the wedding cake suppplied by Katrina's Cakes in Belleville.
and the evening proceeded with a cash bar with popcorn at the bar at 1030 and East and Main doing casadias.
Best wishes to the wedding couple from Pam and Jared, Noreen and Lynne, Kailey and me
