A Sunday Wedding
Yesterday was the perfect day for a wedding! The temperature hovered in the low to mid 60's and the sun was shining brightly all day. The bride and groom wore traditional wedding colors and the groom's black tux was offset by a crisp white vest and tie and a red rose boutonniere while the bride accessorized a full length, partially beaded gown with a vintage style bead and rhinestone headpiece. The bride carried a beautiful fresh red rose bouquet and her bridesmaids and flower girls carried white rose bouquets, from Arnold's Florist.
The simple and elegant bouquets added a touch of color to the 1890 House ceremony venue. Jodi Peck officiated the ceremony, which took place on the landing of the stairs in the historical home. The receiving line was out front and wedding party pictures followed both on the porch and inside.
Prior to the reception, the bride and groom (and groom's family members) visited the Gibson Chapel at the Cortland Rural Cemetery, where the groom's mother's ashes are held; this is where the couple and their children blended their unity sand.
Immediately following, the bride and groom joined the rest of the wedding party at the Elk's Club and were announced by DJ, Phil Connery.
Guests at the reception enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres including shrimp cocktail and stuffed mushrooms. Both adults and children enjoyed the red, black and white themed candy station! The bride's brother catered an elegant buffet prefaced with fresh greens, green peppers and grape tomatoes and followed by roasted asparagus and red peppers accompanying a baked [white] fish, multi-colored tortellini in an alfredo sauce, roasted potatoes, and chicken cordon bleu. Her brother also manned a carving table-- for perfectly prepared prime rib.
Both the best man and the bride's niece offered short and sweet toasts with bubbling pink moscato by Barefoot.
A two-tiered bride and groom cake, prepared by Frosted, was cut and in place of sliced cake, cake pops were shared with guests.
The wedding party and all guests enjoyed music and dancing throughout the reception...
The day was a blessing; the wedding party and guests beautiful, fun and charming!
BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! So happy for both of you!
Simply Beautiful !! You guys just make an awesome couple !! I wish you both MANY years of Happiness & Joy !!!!
