A Wedding at Graeme Park: Anna & Evan

Wedding season kicked off last week at Graeme Park with the wedding of Anna and Evan. The couple staged a light-hearted, fun, preppy event full of color and charm and personalized touches. Their ceremony was held in a clearing in the woods, surrounded by trees and greenery. The alter was created from a backdrop of colorful ribbon streamers, which were then moved up to the tent to form a backdrop behind the couple's Sweetheart Table.

After the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy various lawn games, identified by sweet hand-painted signs, and set up in the area between the Keith House and the wedding tent. Cocktails and hors d'oevres were served in the forbay and barnyard of the 19th century barn.

The reception tent was decorated with bright yellow tablecloths draped with navy and white chevron runners. A scattering of tiny bottles and colorful mercury glass style jars held a mis-matched array of flowers and each table had its own unique cake!

Not only was each cake decorated in its own style, from beachy crabs and anchors, to polka dots, stripes, flowers, and ruffles, but they were all different flavors too! When dessert time came, the catering staff collected the cakes, cut them and served them buffet style so guests could choose their favorite flavor (or two!) to accompany the sundae bar, brownies, and cookies that were also offered.

The Bride and Groom even had their own special treats to enjoy.

Oh, but wait, we skipped right ahead to dessert didn't we? The dinner was a casual, picnic-style affair with grilled hotdogs and hamburgers, chicken, salad, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob. A DJ provided the music for dancing and a good time was had by all.
