What a joy it was to be able to do my niece’s wedding to the love of her life (whom she has known most of her life!) They chose a beautiful church in Tacoma for their special day. When I asked them what they wanted to do, they said they wanted a classy dessert buffet, a candy “bar” and an espresso cart – perfect for a “Sweet” Sunday afternoon reception!
They wanted to jazz up the look of the church basement so we brought in pipe and drape and went around the entire perimeter of the room and draped all the doorways and column dividers. We had specialty linens and table runners that complimented our “sweet” stations and bistro tables. The room was completely transformed!!! The church said they had never seen anything like it. The Bride & Groom had a “sweetheart” table for 2 that we put on top of the stage and their Bridal Party sat directly below them – perfect for the toasting.
The Mother of the Bride (and a few friends) made ALL of the desserts and punch that were served, my calligrapher hand-wrote all of the desserts that were served on the double-sided 16’ buffet table on a 9’ chalkboard, we had an espresso cart with another chalkboard written with some “lattes of love”, a candy “bar” filled with candy in their wedding colors, a slide show of the Bride & Groom growing up, a DJ and pianist played background music and sang during the reception, and there was a sparkler send-off at the end. They were driven off in a Rolls Royce able to reflect on the festivities of the day and ready to start their new life together.
Bride & Groom: Thank you for all of your hard work, love and support! We LOVE you so much and could not have made this day happen so perfectly without you! Love, Karli & Taylor
Father of the Bride: Thanks for all your insight and help making Karli, Taylor, Ursula and my experience, a wonderful and easy time because of your help and contacts. We are grateful for your love for our kids and your gift of service. Love, Erin
Mother of the Bride: Thanks so much! We definitely could not have done this without you. You are very appreciated! Love, Ursula
