April 16, 2011 Michelle and Paul--The Window Debut!

After the window was installed last week, we were all anxious to see how it would look for a wedding!
I have to say, it looks like it's been there from the beginning!  We are all so pleased with the results.  It was worth every cent.
So Michelle and Paul were the lucky couple whose wedding was the inaugural run for the window.  What a great couple!  So nice.  I love having weddings with couples like them.

 Theirs was a small event, about 100 guests.  Their flower girl and ring bearer stole the show!  What darling kids!  Alexis, the little flower girl, was so sweet.  I asked her if she was ready to do her big job, and she told me "Well, actually, I'm a little bit nervous!"  So grown up for such a little girl!  Like most her size though, she was really into the whole thing, and took her petal dropping VERY seriously!

 I don't think the ring bearer was quite as into it, but he did a great job too.

Their colors were pewter grey and orange.  Gerbera Daisies made up the bouquets, the boutonnieres and the centerpieces, as well as decoration on their cake.
Because of the smaller number of guests, we were able to use the North Room for the cocktail hour, and then bring the guests around to the South Room for dinner.  Tres chic! We left our "window" in the wall to make it more cozy and inviting.  It also makes a nice backdrop for photos when the head table is in front of the garden doors.  The gift table in the wall, with twinkle lights, looked beautiful from both sides of the room.
All in all, a lovely evening for a lovely couple!  Congratulations Michelle and Paul!!!

I've never seen the room set up that way before - it's very neat!

Love the window. Can't wait to see it in person!
