*Sally…Sally…Sally. You deserve an award for “Best Mother of the Bride”. From the first moment I met you, I realized what a special person you are. Both you and Kurt made this event so much fun. And you could have walked a Paris runway in your beautiful evening suit that night. You go girl!
Sara and Erik (Bride and Groom) had an amazing wedding reception. Sara told me right off the bat that she wanted ivory and cream tones with accents of chocolate brown. And she had it! The chocolate brown chairs were just enough color to balance out the paler tones. The raw chocolate silk overlays on the accent and sweetheart table were the perfect touches. The giant arrangements of fall branches in distressed copper urns were stunning with masses of hanging votive candles and gave elegance and height to the Ballroom. I could have stared at those all night!
I know that Dr. Weisenfels was worried that guests might not have enough to dine on so I hope the passed hors d’oeuvres, sushi station, four courses, designer wedding cake, lavish dessert station and cordials and chocolates were enough! LOL! Doc, I hope you are proud of the amazing cuilnary experience you gave your guests.
Of all my memories of this magical night, it had to be Dr. Weisenfels toast that will stay with me the rest of my life. It truly was one of the most sincere and beautiful toasts I have ever heard. And when Doc’s voice cracked and he teared up…I think everyone teared up a bit in that sweet moment of stillness.
Sally, I will always remember our debate over wedding favors and the now famous table #17. I think the champagne glass favors looked beautiful!
I will think of you all the next time I raise my glass.
