Lyndsey and David

Well after 15 months and 3 babies Lyndsey and David are husband and wife. Lyndsey's brother had 2 babies during the planning process and I of course had Isabella.

Lyndsey wanted November 8,2008 to be all about her and David. We put many hours in planning this wedding and reception and to see it all come together was beautiful. LITERALLY. I along with my team setup most of the ballroom and theater on Friday. Lyndsey's linens were stunning. The tables were done in a pink champagne lamour linen with a gold floral lace overlay then espresso brown napkin and pink champagne chair cover with an espresso chair tie. The ballroom looked STUNNING. Julie did all the flowers in shades of pink roses with accents of blush colored feathers.

The day ran smooth. The morning was dedicated to hair and makeup. Then Lyndsey and her maids dressed at the Scottish Rite. David and guys got there just in time for few pre-ceremony pictures. At the start of ceremony, Ken Knowles and Ann Conrad sang "The Prayer" as Lyndsey's aunt and her husband lit a remembrance candle. The ceremony was so personal. There was a reading from the Velvetine Rabbit. Lyndsey is a nurse at a local children's hospital. Lyndsey's Dad, Craig had a hard time giving her away. When the pastor asked "who gives this woman to this man?" There was 20 seconds of silence. Finally, Craig said "her mother and I. " Afterwards, guests went downstairs to the South Lounge where cocktails and hors d'ouvuers awaited them. We had a photo montage running as a trio played. At the reception, the 28 tables were all named after cities in Sicily. This was to pay tribute to David's family. Vince, and the rest of the Thomas Catering staff did an awesome job. Have I mentioned the cake yet? It was like something you see in a magazine. Lyndsey, myself and Paige from Sweet Seductions came up with a design it looked as if silk was draped over cake with pink and gold jewels as accents. Brian Jones kept the dance floor rocking all night. When it was time to toss the bouquet, I took Lyndsey upstairs to the 3rd floor balcony. Once all the single ladies were on the dance floor, Lyndsey hurled the bouquet it almost hit the chandler. My heart skipped a beat. At the end of the evening, the antique limo picked up Lyndsey and David and chauffeured them back you their hotel where we had decorated their suite in rose petals and votive candles. This wedding would of not been possible without my FABULOUS dream team. 19 vendors in all and everyone single one did a great job. So Thank You to everyone. Lyndsey and David are off to California for week of relaxation.
