Ourt first wedding for the season was this past Sunday. Blair and Josh had 69 people attend their morning ceremony, at the pondsite at 11 AM. After the ceremony guests moved to the sheepshed for some wonderful appetizers put together by the groom (he is a chef at a hotel - and it showed!)
The couple requested a sangria punch and and a non-alcoholic punch and of course we had water available too.
While their guests enjoyed the appetizers and punches, Blair and Josh and the wedding party were having photos done by Robert House - a very nice guy out of Belleville who we simply missed put on our list of photographers (he is on the list now). After mingling on the lawn behind the barn with a very good guitar stylist (Phil from Gatineau) everyone made their way to the barn where we were all set-up for a 1 PM luncheon.
I must say I am a huge fan of this style of set-up - rectangular tables work very well even with large crowds. Details (as outlined by Blair in her binders) on the tables can be seen in this photo.
The head table (also on the floor) was set-up as follows
There were many tables around the room as well - including the cupcake table
East and Main served a sit down meal starting with a soup, followed by salad, a gourmet sandwich grilled on site and then desert served with our raspberry gelato (made onsite the night before). The bride and groom brought in Sandbanks - Baco Noir and Dunes wines for the luncheon. Meanwhile their solo guitarist played through the luncheon with our system filling in between his sets until the event drew to a close at 4 PM.
There were some lovely details such as
and tables set-up for signing in included
And there we have it. The first of our 2013 weddings is now history. From all of us here we want to wish Blair and Josh all the best as we look to Crystal's wedding coming up very soon.
Cheers from, Kailey, Lynne, Noreen and Mark(me)
