I had the pleasure of helping plan two weddings over Memorial Day weekend. The first one was for Mr. and Mrs. Aultman. The flowers from Monarch were STUNNING!
They drapped pearls on the crystal candelabras to incorporate both crystals and pearls. There were pearls floating in the vases of the short flower arrangements as well. They had menu cards at each place setting and a cake pop as a favor. No one left those behind at the end of the evening!
What a party! There were Greek dances that involved nearly the entire crowd. Everyone had a good time.
The next wedding was on Sunday for Mr. and Mrs. Ellingsen! Tiffany, the bride, attended her sister's wedding here five years ago and then decided to have her own wedding with us as well! Nothing makes us happier than families who come back to celebrate over and over!
We were all a little concerned about the weather and we did get a few raindrops that day, but managed to have a garden wedding. It was gorgeous!
The unity ceremony was very unique. A rock was placed on each chair as the guests came in to the garden. During the ceremony, the officiant asked everyone to hold their rocks tightly and pray over them while the bride, groom and parents shared a moment of prayer as well. The couple then collected all of the rocks in baskets and placed them in a decorative container. They will be kept at their house to remind them of their wedding day!
What a fun weekend! Congratulations to our couples!
