Every wedding is THE most important day in the lives of those who are tying the knot and their families. Helping folks plan this special day (often for many months) is really an honor that I feel is sacred. I have become good friends with all of our bridal couples and their families this summer, and Ann and Wes, and Ann's family were no exception. We always pray for good weather, and their prayers were answered BIG TIME with perhaps the most gorgeous Saturday of the summer.

It's especially fun when family and friends pull out the stops creatively with decorating ideas. These folks used a family canoe filled with ice for the drinks - and put up these informative directional signs on a lamp post so their guests could find the very deluxe bathroom trailer which some people remarked was nicer than their bathroom at home.

I always advise people not to just put place cards on a table - as they can easily get swept away by a gust of wind. Ann devised this clothes line with little clothes pins for the place cards and had them hanging from some great old antiques.
Also loved that they shared the story of how they met in a small booklet that was at each place setting. I loved getting to know them better.
Our Mini Lump Crab Cakes with red pepper aioli are always a huge hit - especially on a perfect summer day!
The best was when Ann and Wes came dancing into the tent! What a beautiful couple! We wish you both many years of love and happiness!
