What a great celebration! So many things to say about this week-end and I hope to share as much as I can. I don't think Martha Stewart could have done better! After the traditional marriage ceremony at Holy Trinity Church the party was ready to begin.
As mentioned in the previous post about the rehearsal dinner, the wedding took place at Milldale Farm. This venue was beyond words!
The bride made over four hundred candles as part of the decorations. Friends and family saved all types of jars and soy candles were made. Table centerpieces were made from a slice of a downed tree, jars as a vase for red and orange gerber daisies with extra greens and bittersweet, handmade candles and natural oak leaves. These same elements were used throughout the barn for decorations everywhere.
The bride grew up in Kansas City, the groom near Chicago. Chicago is where they met, Chicago is were they live. They made gift bags for "out of town" guests that contained items from both cities.
Friends from Chicago entertained during the cocktail time. Later in the evening they arranged for someone to come and serve "Chicago-style" hot dogs to the guests.
So much went into this wonderfully, fun week-end wedding and we thank Suzanne & Anthony for providing everyone with many memories.
