Leslie and Josh 9-5-09

Another busy weekend at Aberdeen Manor!

Saturday evening, Leslie and Josh had their ceremony in the garden. What a perfect day for the garden! The temperature was perfect, the sky was blue with just a dusting of fluffy clouds, just a light breeze (not good for the unity candle; it seemed to stay lit though.)

Two VERY serious flower girls left the little trail of petals down the aisle. They were absolutely intent on getting them perfectly placed. Everyone had a little chuckle over watching them!

Leslie decided to use our newest cake plateau. You can see it above and in the previous post. Her cake looked absolutely beautiful on it.
We now have six plateaus to choose from. One of them we have to get photos of yet. It's a low round, probably 24 inches across, and a mirror sets into it. So it's a silver edge with a mirror for the cake. Very pretty. We've had it quite a while, just haven't used it and gotten a photo, so nobody really knows about it. So now you know! I'll put our fake cake on it and take a picture, that might work.

Leslie and her mother planned a beautiful wedding and reception. Her invitations, programs, and menu cards were all done by Affairs, and came from Envelopments Everything coordinated, one to the next. They were done in shades of ivory, tan and a deep victorian lilac that matched the bridesmaid gowns perfectly. We also provided matching victorian lilac favor boxes that were filled with some decadent little truffles and tied with the narrow ivory ribbon that was used on the invitation and the programs.

We used a special square napkin fold to showcase the very elegant menu card. They also decided to use our ivory bichon tablecloths which added a beautiful shimmer to all the tables.

The flowers were done by Flowers with Jazz. They used some high, some low, some with our cylinder vases, it mixed it up nicely and looked great. The shades of lavender roses, blue larkspur, bright green bells of ireland and Kermit mums , along with pale pastel lisianthus, were stunning in the tall arrangements. The hydrangea were tipped with dark blue to blend them in. In the cylinders they used white dendrobium orchids, and the other tables had low arrangements in clear square containers of hydrangea, roses, and lisianthus.

Dinner was delicious. Hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour were followed by a combo plate of bistro filet and pecan crusted chicken. Yummy! Their cake, from Strongbow bakery, was both white and chocolate.

Transaudio's DJ Mike was on the mike, so of course, the events moved smoothly from wedding to reception and on through the evening, like a well oiled machine.

Congratulations Leslie and Josh! Fabulous wedding, wonderful couple! All the best for a wonderful future together, you two!

We move on to Sunday! However that will be a separate post, because I am finding that every time I download a photo, the spacing changes! It's very frustrating!
