Most of the time the groom is a fairly quiet party in the planning process. He shows up, nods and agrees with everthing the bride likes. Well…not our Andy.
Jenny and Andy work together because he is Yin and she is Yang. And and I knew that we would reach a state of harmony.
Vicki and Steven Deutsch will probably remain one of my favorite parent’s of the bride of all time. When I think of Vicki Deutsch, I am always reminded of the phrase, “grace under pressure”. Over the engagement process, Vicki attended many of my design seminars and I can truly say that I always looked forward to her call. Vicki Deutsch is a lady in every sense of the word.
With the help of Randy Felkey, Jenny and Vicki created a vision in tones of orange, peach, salmon and purple. Huge orbs of flowers brimming over with peach lilies, salmon gerber daisys, purple iris and orange orchids towered above the guests heads and the the tables were drenched in the most beautiful shade of peach damask. The huppa was swagged in sheer white organza panels with tiebacks of orange roses and the ladies just glowed against it in their soft tangerine tone gowns. It was bold and beautiful.
Andy…Andy…Andy…it is always interesting to have a chef for a client. You made Chef and I giggle more than once. I appreciate your input with the fabulous culinary experience Steven and Vicki provided for you. You are a very lucky young man. I think the chilled watermelon soup was superb and the peaches and cream wedding cake brought down the house…guests asked us for 2 and 3 pieces!
To Vicki Deutsch I can only say “thank you”. Despite the flood in your home (caused by the city), loss of family members and dealing with strong personalities, you were always kind, lovely and stylish. And every mother-of-the bride should look as good as you did. Diamonds and a ballgown are never a bad combination!
Neither were you and me.
