Congratulations to Eileen and David who were married in an outside ceremony, then proceeded to celebrate with cocktail hour on the veranda and a reception in the Mansion. I was keeping my eye on the weather last Saturday hoping Eileen and David would get their grape arbor ceremony in before the rains came. I found out later in the weekend that after going back and forth as to whether or not to move the ceremony to the veranda they decided to take a chance outside. The gamble paid off, not 10 minutes after they completed the ceremony the wind and rain came through, by that time everyone was safely inside or enjoying cocktails on the veranda.
Eileen and David, in order to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests decided to have the formal photo’s done before the ceremony, another bonus in timing, they were able to have their photo’s taken outdoors on our beautiful grounds before the rain moved them inside.
An interesting fact about this client; their initial request for information came through the wedding website WeddingWire.com, since they both work during the week and could not get any time off to meet with me one on one, they scheduled a walk through with my event staff Zach. He answered as many questions as he could then I followed up with an email the following Monday to address any further questions they might have. The entire planning process was done through emails and phone conversations until the day before the wedding when I finally met them both for the first time. So for all the couples out there planning a wedding long distance, this proves that it can be done with spectacular results.
We wish Eileen and David all the best in their future together, may they grow to love each other a little bit more each and every day from this day forward.
