Catching up!

Sorry folks, it's been a busy couple of weeks and I have severely fallen off the blogging wagon!

We had our Taste of Aberdeen party and vendor fair on Sunday the 15th. About 160 people attended! it was a lot of fun seeing everyone and having a chance to talk about their plans. it seems like our couples have a great time talking with each other and comparing notes as well. We had a really nice group of vendors attend as well, and most of them donated some nice prizes for our raffle. All in all it was a delightful afternoon. I always look forward to our party.

So following the party (as in, we left for the airport from the party!) we hopped on a plane and scooted down to Florida for a little vacation time. It was nice to relax for a few days, play some golf, and visit with our friends there. The following weekend, Friday, November 2oth we had a wedding for a delightful couple, Janet and Rob. What a lovely event. They really spent a lot of time and effort to make everything special for their guests. Their meal was fantastic. It began with hors d'oeuvres in the North Room followed by dinner in the South Room. We placed the gift table in the middle of the partition to make a "window". It's really a nice effect. It looks spacious and you have the look of the windows on both ends of the room, but it downsizes the room for smaller groups. I have actually seen people go up to the gift table and try to touch the window to see if it was solid or not!

Janet and Rob used an autumn color theme. The copper bichon tablecloths looked awesome! here are some photos from their event:

The following evening, Saturday the 21st we had a wedding and reception for Leslie and Jon.

As you can see, they used a black and red color scheme. Very pretty, particularly with Leslie's white gown, which was so pretty! Very delicate and feminine. I also liked her hair in sort of a low "up-do" if that makes any sense! It worked beautifully with her veil.

Incidentally, we thought it was interesting that every single weekend in November was beautiful weather for a wedding! How often does THAT happen? While it was cool for most, it was clear and crisp, mostly 50's and 60's. What an unusual year. Particularly when you consider that October, which is normally a month where we have lots of beautiful days, was rainy and gloomy for the most part. Go figure!

It just goes to prove, that there really isn't a good or bad time for a wedding in Indiana! You take your chances no matter what. We can have torential rains in September, tornadoes in July, and 70 degree days in January! We just never know what's going to happen around here. So it's great to be prepared for any contingency.
