November Wedding

The day started out sunny with the rain clouds on the horizon, leading to the decision of Plan B for the ceremony on the covered patio. BeckenRidge staff started off the day placing the white Italian chairs on the covered patio along with the heaters to keep everyone warm.

Inside the room BeckenRidge tables and padded chairs were set with white chair covers and linens rented from BeckenRidge. The first to arrive was Linda with flowers who placed centerpieces on the guest tables & decorated the arch for the ceremony. Caterer ~ DHS catering came early with staff to help pre-set tables before dashing back to the kitchen.

Photographer ~ Tyler took lots of photos of the bride and groom. He had many challenges with the weather and stage the pictures mostly under the covered patio.

With the guest size larger than recommended they did have to place 30 guests under the covered patio after the ceremony.

Thank goodness for the patio heaters, though I think one more would of helped with the cool night air. There was a transition after the ceremony, with the help of many hands, making the switch from ceremony to reception easy.

The reception went by fast. They choose to have a slide show of the bride & groom growing up, using BeckenRidge's screen and bringing in their own projector & laptop. Before you knew it guests were ringing bells as the bride & groom said their goodbyes and headed off for their honeymoon.
