On August 12, 2011 Katharine and Todd joined their two families in a beautiful backyard wedding for family and friends. Katherine wanted to make sure that the wedding and reception included not only her and Todd but also that their children would feel like it was their celebration also. The ceremony took place in her parent’s backyard in front of a waterfall. The wedding colors were eggplant purple, creamsicle orange and green accents. We researched and found an American Indian legend about whispering their wishes to butterflies who silently fly towards the heavens carrying their wishes. At the end of the ceremony each of the children and the couple then released Monarch Butterflies. It was really majestic and many gasps of surprise when the butterflies were released.
Following the ceremony there was a Dessert Bar reception with chocolate fountains, a variety of desserts ranging from cookies, candies and cheesecake along with fruit, cheese & cracker trays and also fresh vegetable trays. The couple chose a very unique style wedding cake. The evening was perfect with the warm weather and with a gentle breeze blowing.
To include the children in the reception we planned a “Fun Zone” for all the children (and adults alike) where there was face painting, popcorn stand and cotton candy. It was a great evening for everyone.
