Red-Hot Wedding

Ann and Geoff’s Memorial Weekend wedding at Olin Park was not only beautiful, but the focus was on friends and fun!  During one of our first meetings, Ann said “I like Red”. What a great starting point for the décor!

A little while later they said they wanted board games instead of any kind of floral centerpieces. It was really important that their guest have fun. They still wanted it to be really pretty though! I think we did a fine job. We used a lot of décor off the tables, to create a beautiful room. We used paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling and candle lanterns hanging in the windows as well as many votives to create a warm, beautiful atmosphere.

After the ketubah was signed, we enjoyed an indoor ceremony in the Olin Park Pavilion. The ceremony took place under a beautiful chuppah woven by the groom’s mother for the occasion. The table games were available for entertainment between the wedding and reception, while the wedding party were photographed.

After a delicious dinner, dancing started with the hora. Bride and Groom were the first to be hoisted during the dance, but then parents and grand parents were also celebrated!

The Liam Ford Band kept the party dancing the rest of the night. The guests loved the performance.

The evening ended with delicious cake, and guests filled boxes from the cookie table to take home. Both mothers had made thousands of cookies for the occasion, and many friends also contributed to this sweet tradition.
