Trisha & Doug

Trisha and Doug
July 5, 2008
Emerson Ave. Baptist Church and Grand Hall Union Station
I know that I'm posting this wedding recap a little late so for all you regular readers please accept my apology.

Trisha and Doug are probably the most laid back couple I've met. The day went so smoothly. We started early with installing the chair covers, putting down the overlays and of course draping the beautiful chiffon from the 3rd floor.
At ceremony, Ava ( Doug's Daughter) was so cute. She was the flower girl and when it was her time to walk down the aisle she ran instead. Everyone laughed!
Trisha and Doug hired The Flying Toasters for their reception entertainment. They were great! The dance floor was packed the whole night. And at the end of the night Doug sang a duet with Jason the lead singer!
The one word that I would use to describe this wedding is STUNNING. From the extra tall centerpieces to the gobo on the dance floor. This wedding had it all from great food to great entertainment.

Allene and Chris

What a stunning 24 carat gold wedding! We literally brought in everything from gold chargers to escort cards. This glitz and glamour reception was breath taking when the sun set and the Bellini’s started flowing.
During the planning process, we decided to offer a choice to the guests. I came up with this wonderful idea of having a different colored rose for each entrée offered (tangerine=beef, yellow= chicken, and white=fish). The final count came in, the seating chart was created, and the escort cards printed. Well……the plan sounded perfect until implementation. Not only was my idea confusing, but it was also time consuming. It ended up being just fine, but it just goes to show you that not all ideas come off smoothlyas you would have expected. Of course, the guests didn’t notice anything and never once complained about the entrée selection (the food was great). A special thanks to Katie and her staff for the extra set of hands and smiles! The behind scene is what makes my job so fun, but stressful at times too! Allene and Chris had a blast and danced until they couldn’t dance anymore. The second dress was the talk of the night (stunning) and the fresh popped popcorn made the atmosphere truly magical.
