Memorial Day Memories

Memorial weekend of 2011 was certainly memorable for Carrie & Jay, as well as for us.  The exuberance and joy brought to The Lalumondiere by these two, as well as their guests, left good karma behind for posterity.

Carrie's perpetual smile and laughter, along with Jay's beaming eyes, infused the day with happiness.

Carrie & Jay chose the back patio gardens for their ceremony.  

Jay's three lovely daughters were a special part of the day.

 Stephanie and Brandon approach the river side pavilion to exchange their vows before family and friends.  

Judge Bob Wilkins administered those vows just after suggesting that Stephanie take a deep breath.  And that she did.........

Much thought and detail was put into every aspect of this wedding.  Food was presented from three separate stations around the patios allowing guests to nosh at their leisure.  The staff of Peggs Restaurant on the Boulevard prepared and served much of the repast along with the Saleem's Restaurant who provided the Middle Eastern offering.

We are often questioned about what to do if it rained on your outdoor wedding day.  In the case of Emily and Christian, the answer an easy going couple willing to 'go with the flow', have an inventive and capable wedding coordinator like Trudy Nicholson and a caterer such as Candicci's who can move their operation from point A to point B without a problem.  Add the talent of Jerry Grimm and his wife of Jerry Grimm Photography to the mix for added measure.  They managed to catch all the bright spots of the day through the lens of their cameras!  Great job one and all!

After a rain delay during which guests were treated to passed hors d'oeurve's under pop up canopies, thoughtfully supplied by Trudy, the ceremony proceeded during a break in the weather.  The rain stopped in time for the DJ to amp up the music and guests danced the rest of the night away with the truly joyful couple.  Perfect ending.  What a pleasure to work with you all, guests included!

 Emily and her mother, provided their own rainbow from wedding invitations, hand created by them, to the flowers to the brides maids dress colors.  

Rain gear ruled the day with guests that came prepared.  The space heaters provided by The Lalumondiere became sought after spaces to gather.  But everyone was smiling!

Approximately 70 guests and family members celebrated Jessica and Jason's wedding at The Lalumondiere on a sunny Saturday afternoon.  The dance floor was full by the end of the evening and the night air filled with laughter.  Best wishes to you both!
