What a great way to start 2011!


We began our 2011 with the beautiful winter wedding of Julie and Bryan.  They were married at six in the evening on January 8 under the Pavilion amongst twinkling lights and glowing candles and about 170 guests.  Their wedding was gorgeous and so were they.  Their families were all so nice to have around and Bryan's family from Amarillo, Texas got to enjoy their stay in the Cottage for the whole weekend. 

Julie and Bryan kept their guests all snugly warm by providing outdoor heaters and fire pits and serving  hot-chocolate, coffee and hot cider.  God was so good and gave us beautiful weather for the winter event.  He held off on the rain until about midnight after the wedding.  

Angela Olson was the event coordinator and did all the decorating for the event and made sure things ran smoothly, she is wonderful.  The reception was held inside the cottage.  June Shepard with Celebrations was the caterer.  The food was fabulous.  She served all different kinds of finger foods and the wedding cake was beautiful and had it's own room in the Parlor. 

Bryan's family provided a fun milk and cookies table in the sitting room.  That was very popular.

  Julie gave her bridesmaids cute polka-dotted umbrellas and gave all the guests their own packet of hot chocolate.  The photographers were "A Moment in Time Photography" and it looked like they were doing an awesome job and as soon as I get the link to their photos, I will pass it on. 

Stay warm everyone........
