What a perfect match Dori & Chris are and they waited a long time to find each other! They knew they were interested in having their wedding and reception at a winery so Dori did the searching (since Chris lived in Richland) and narrowed it down and then Chris came over and they both couldn’t agree more that DeLille Winery was the place for them! It was perfect for what they wanted to do. They both wanted an elegant/classy wedding (she likes bling and he likes sparkle) with some fun and unique touches for the guests. Dori purchased some items to help make the decor that much more special and with a personal touch. Guests were greeted by hand-calligraphed chalkboards leading the way to the events, lemonade prior to the ceremony, and a beautiful etched wine bottle everyone signed as the guest book. They had hoped their ceremony could be outside, but the day of the wedding it poured (but that didn’t bother either one of them in the least – all they wanted to do was get married that day), so we had already rented a clear tent to cover the patio for their dinner so we had the ceremony under the clear top tent, surrounded by the beautiful foilage of DeLille and it was lovely!!! (It actually looked like we had planned it that way all along!) The guests enjoyed some appetizers and beverages by the fireplace inside DeLille while the tent was re-set for their plated dinner. The Bride & Groom even had a Grand Entrance (with the help from a fog machine the DJ brought)! Guests then went back into the tent for a lovely meal, followed by some very emotional toasts from the guests. I think everyone loved the hand-carved wooden wine stoppers as the party favors too! Once the toasting was finished, everyone moved back into DeLille for a dessert buffet, a slide show, some karaoke and some dancing! This party had it all and the guests had a blast! It was just what they wanted and couldn’t have fit their personalities more perfectly!
Bride & Groom: “What can we say? You played such an integral part in planning, organizing and executing a lovely ceremony for us. You were such a big part in it being such a successful, memorable and wonderful day for us. I was so relaxed for the wedding, to a great extent, because I knew you were there and that everything would not just be okay, but great! We just loved how everything came together – even as Plan B! Thanks so much for being steady, sound and understanding during the stressful parts of the planning process. ”
Fondly, Dori (& Chris)
