The planning began………….the ceremony would be in the far northwest corner of the property facing the woods behind the carriage house. Amber’s dad would be building the altar at which they would be married – what a sweet gesture. The big white tent complete with a dance floor would be on the southeast side of the property, near the pool. Lanterns and wine bottle candles would adorn the pathways and surround the pool to help complete the romantic setting for the evening. Bruce took care of building a bonfire in the back corner of the south yard to help light the evening.
Even though the day had brought rain showers off and on – by late afternoon the sun had begun to shine, and the evening sky was filled with a beautiful moon and stars…..magical.
After the ceremony, the guests made their way to the 40x60 tent for dinner and the toasting of the newly married couple….and then the real party began – complete with music, lots of conversation and many a slow dance for all the couples in attendance. As the evening wound down – guests sat poolside (or in the hot tub), on the porch swings, or by the fire, and enjoyed the night.
