Happy 2nd Anniversary Mr. & Mrs. Wells

Today marks the second anniversary for another fabulous couple.

Elegance summed up Rosemarie and Charles reception on Saturday, November 5, 2011. A wet, crisp fall day gave way to a beautiful reception with a beaming couple.

Mr. and Mrs. Wells had floor length ivory linens, ivory napkins, ivory chair covers with champagne organza sashes, and embroidered overlays with satin detail provided by All Occasion Rentals. Magnolia’s Flowers complimented the color scheme wonderfully. The flowers provided the perfect amount of color and complimented the warm colors of fall. Flowers included gorgeous roses in a warm copper tone and lush peach. Also included in the arrangements were white Lillies, white Hydrangeas, babies breath, and green foliage. The vases showcased the intertwined branches and twigs of the centerpiece and really gave it that fall feel.


Guests dined on a lavish feast that began with cocktail hour which featured: cheese and cracker, chilled jumbo shrimp, Raspberry Almond Brie, fresh fruit, and sliced salmon on a cucumber round.

Dinner included 3 salad options: baby greens with feta cheese, candied walnuts, bell tomatoes, and cranberry vinaigrette dressing, a Caesar Salad, and pasta salad with baby shrimp. Entrees included a chef carved station that featured Filet Mignon and Roasted Pork Tenderloin. Accompaniments included wild rice pilaf, seasonal fresh vegetables, sourdough rolls, and a mashed potato bar. The potato bar was the high lite of the dinner for the guests. Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Yukon Gold Potatoes were served in martini glasses with assorted toppings that included bacon bits, cheese, chives, and sour cream.

Michelle’s Bakery provided the three-tiered cake. Flavors included German Chocolate, Lemon with fresh Raspberries, and Raspberry Victorian. Two kayaks were placed on the top of the cake to incorporate the couple’s love of kayaking and outdoor sports.

DJ Benji, of VIP Events, did a wonderful job hosting the evening and kept the party rolling.

Congratulations Rosemarie and Charles on your Second Wedding Anniversary!

Be Marry,

C&C

{Tuesday Tip} Vendor Meals

Today’s tip is something that can either save you money or cost you extra if you don’t plan accordingly.

Many brides ask if they should  supply a meal for vendors and my rule of thumb is if the vendor is staying for more than 3 hours and will be present during the entire dinner service time you should consider having a meal for them.

ML345

John From VIP EVENTS

With vendors we always recommend to keep them happy and think about their needs as well because a happy vendor will work better and be more pleasant to work with, making the day more enjoyable for everyone. Think about it if you are a vendor and are going to be working 9+ hours you are going to need to take a least a few breaks and eat something  during day.

ML402

Decorated Buffet Table 

It can vary so it is best to ask each vendor if they would like a meal because some vendors may eat before hand or plan breaks and meals themselves. If they would like a meal supplied the next step is going to your reception location or catering company and ask if they have special vendor meals or options. A DJ or photographer who may be scarfing down a meal between grand entrance and toasts doesn’t need prime rib and fancy twice baked potatoes, it might be nice to serve them the same as your guests but if it is going to cost you upwards of $60.oo each ask  your cater about different options and by planning ahead many caters may throw in a vendor meal or two if you are having a buffet or can plan a lower cost menu option for vendors. Remember to plan ahead because you don’t want to have to buy them that $60+ a plate meal and fork over the payment the day of your wedding if you don’t plan ahead.
