Friday, August 26, 2011 was a day filled with lavender hues, candy buffets, and magicians. Sean and Rachel had their ceremony in our courtyard site facing the quaint,calming fountain. Framing the fountain was a beautiful arch decorated in purple flowers and dangling diamonds.
Purple wooden fans and bubbles were given to guests as they took their seats for the ceremony. Included on each fan was a small, hand-written note with the wedding date and couples name, thanking guests for attending the wedding. As the couple walked down the aisle as the new Mr. and Mrs. Frederiksen guests blew bubbles that enveloped the aisle.
The reception included ivory linens, ivory chair covers, lavender satin sashes. Table tops were decorated with floral arrangements that included lilies, purple roses, carnations, green foliage, and purple hued babies breath. Centerpieces alternated between bunched floral arrangements, manzanita trees that had purple orchids and gems placed along their branches, and tall candles.
During cocktail hour guests were entertained by a magician who amazed them with his card tricks. For dinner guests dined on the Italian menu and enjoyed dessert from the deliciously tempting sweet creations provided by Judy and the decadent three-tiered cake.
VIP events, Andrea’s Photography, and Sweet Creations by Judy did wonderful work on Rachel and Sean’s wedding. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Frederiksen for having your wedding at Menifee Lakes Country Club.
