Garland Resort Lewiston ~ Liz and Kenny 6/1/2013
was a beautiful day for a wedding at the Garland Lodge Resort. Liz and Kenny
were finally ready to tie the knot. We loved working with this couple! They
chose our middle planning package and we had a blast planning this wedding!
at the Rehearsal, though there were a few knots to work out, that’s what rehearsals
are for! They had a lovely barbeque after for dinner and then it was time to prepare
for the day of the nuptials!
We started at 11:00 AM on Saturday
June 1, and we were in for a very long, but exciting day! We met up with all of
the bridesmaids, mothers, and the bride to be in their villa where they had
just come back from the salon and now were having makeup done. Looking fabulous, the ladies
were ready for pre- wedding photos, taken by the very talented Amy Carroll Photography. Then it was to the men for pre-wedding, and
then Ken and Liz’s first look. From the photos you can just see how much they
love each other. It was a perfect first look and we couldn’t be happier to see
these wonderful candid photos.
by the water.
There were beautiful decorations set up along the aisles, at the entrance, and
of course on the pergola, done by our wonderful divas, Designed Sealed
Delivered. The ceremony was beautiful, Liz looked stunning as she walked down
the aisle with her father and the look on Kenny’s face said it all. My favorite part
was when the minister, Crystal Yarlott, said “I now pronounce you man and wife”
and Liz went in for the big kiss! By far one of my favorite pictures! I was in
charge of post ceremony coordination and cleanup, while Tracie was busy busy
busy heading up the reception hall, making sure that every last detail was
ready for the guests and the newlyweds to party the night away!
after the ceremony in the Great Room where beer, wine and appetizers were served on trays to
the guests. Kenny and Liz mingled with their attendees and then it was to
more beautiful, the ladies at Designed Sealed Delivered really pulled out
all of the stops at this wedding. Everything was so beautiful and meshed
perfectly. The couple couldn’t have been happier.
and then to what everyone loves….the food. Provided by Garland Lodge Resort
everyone had the choice of a
Fish or Filet entrée and it was all delicious. Following dinner was the
dessert bar, filled with mini cupcakes courtesy of Cupcake Station, and trail mixes, candy and
so much more! Then it was to Liz and Kenny’s first dance, provided by Steve Miller. The look on their faces
could bring a tear to anyone’s eye. So in love with each other that a smile
could not leave their faces the whole night.
What a group of dancers it was! The floor was almost never empty and everyone was
there to have a great time! At the end of the night I escorted the newlyweds to
their penthouse and then everyone headed to the bar for some wedding party
this couple! One of my favorite weddings so far and could not be happier for
the newlyweds! We also could not have been happier to get to know Liz’s mother,
Karen! We loved working with all of you in planning this beautiful, special,
and spectacular wedding!
