The Cotton Company, it had been completely transformed since the last wedding I did there in December for Kristin and Tim. They were expecting about 175 guests. The chairs are set up in the center of the room covering the dance floor which was exposed later. It was a nice set up and I did not know the space could accommodate that many guests.
Sweet Loralee Pastries. It is bedecked with gorgeous red roses in keeping with their red theme. Amedeo's was catering.
Ambiance Wedding & Event Design put together a beautiful altar area with puddling satin tablecovers sprinkled with red rose petals and tall florals dripping with bling!
These large flower balls graced the guestbook and gift table.
Jonathan Cain's fabulous rendition of The Bridal March. I just love that music! I believe I recommended it to them and they took me up on it. The music for the ceremony was played via iPod by John Chan of the Boomerang Band that played for the reception. Steve has his own band so he must have called in some favors and got this great dance band.
I have "enhanced" these lighter photos so you can see the venue better. The Event Gallery upstairs over the retail shops is quite unique. I have done many weddings here through the years. The area is quite versatile and can be set up and decorated in many ways. When the ceremony was over, the chairs were moved, the dance floor cleared, and large round tables covered with red tablecloths were arranged around the dance floor. Beth Jarvah is the event director for The Cotton Company. She is also a photographer and I have known her previously from weddings she photographed.
