Tea on the Green

Ashley and Chad
September 5,2009
East 91st Christian Church and Woodstock Club
When Ashley first came in our office, she brought wedding bag and said, "I need help". I loved Ashley's vision! She wanted a natural look nothing too flashy but not plain. The church was beautifully decorated as the ceremony went off right on time. The highlight of the ceremony was when Ashley and Chad poured their individual containers of sand into one as they were announced husband and wife. The harpist and organist played Bitter Sweet Symphony together; it sounded AMAZING! For the reception Ashley didn't want to serve alcohol, but her family did so she compromised and hosted an open bar after dinner. For the non-cocktail hour she came up "Tea on the Green", a non-alcoholic way to incorporate the atmosphere. It went over great!!! Outside on lawn Woodstock lemonade, ice tea and Arnold Palmers we set up in beautiful glass vessels for guests to help themselves. Waiters passed the most delicious hors d'oeuvres. We also set up bocce ball and croquet on the lawn for guests to play as the lovely sounds of a harp and bongos drifted through the air. After dinner was served Ashley and Chad cut their beautiful cake from Classic Cakes of Carmel and guests helped themselves to the unbelievable display on mini desserts and pastries. The Hackensaw Boys, a blue grass band from North Carolina, played throughout the evening. It was Chad's favorite part of the night! At the end of the evening Ashley and Chad ran through a line of sparklers then were whisked away to the hotel. Another great event!!
Thanks to all the wonderful vendors! Susan at the club, Kevin and his crew for the great pictures, John the videographer who stayed until the end of the night. Jan and Micheal for the great sounds and everyone else who helped make this wedding a success!
