Miranda & Jesse: A Most Perfect Wedding Celebration

From start to finish this was the perfect wedding. The beautiful bride, the handsome groom,
the supportive and warm families, the great venue, the coordinated vendors, everything
went according to plan. I’m so grateful to have been welcomed into this wonderful couple’s
world and to have played a small part in sending them off to married life in the way they
deserved. Miranda and Jesse this one’s for you! Let’s take you through the amazing day
starting with the preps.

And that gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress was just so perfect! Add to the fact that the bride’s
mother bought her dress at the same shop, Mariella Creations, some 30 years earlier,
made it that much more special.

Each place setting featured a dressed up spice bottle, containing a unique mixture created
by the mother of the bride. We added this special saying, reminding us what the night was all about.

Plan-it Vicki even got to put the finishing touches on this amazing cake made by Harvest Cafe,
dressing it up with real flowers. It came out pretty well, don’t you think?

The formalities of earlier in the evening gave way to one heck of a dance party, led, of
course by the newlyweds. Go, Jesse!

And don’t think the canine friends were forgotten. The bride’s grandmother made some yummy
treats for guests to take home to their furry friends.
