Laura and Richard get married May 24h

Well here we are - its May 24th and the ceremony took place at the pondsite on straw bales before the rains changed our straw bale availability.  In fact it rained that day with us watching doppler radar to see if the wedding would need to be moved inside...or not. Turns out that at 430 the weather changed and all was good.

Peter and Drew did the flowers and after the ceremony Hardryde played great bluegrass to an appreciative crowd - amazing to see a group of this calibre here they set quite the tone for the evening. We served Mill Street Orgainc, Coors Lite and Kronenburg Blanc along with a particularly deadly Grapefruit Martini featuring fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and a simply Rosemary Syrup which seemd to ignite the guests.  The Drake Devonshire made its first appearance here (we expect to see them more).  Matt did alright for his first time here - underlining the fact that experience onsite is an asset.  We served Grange Gamay and Pinot Noir and guests enjoyed an open bar. Our Giant Jenga was a hit but more so was late night with Bob Belsey's Pizza Via. There I go - excited about late night - here was the table set-up

and then we changed the chairs - thank goodenss the 1 PM inspection happened!

easy when you have the time.

Best wishes from Jared and Corey, Elizabeth, Noreen, Kailey, Lynne and me

The May 17th wedding

Dear Readers;

May 17th was a somewhat emotional affair.  Health issues had played a role in the timing of this wedding. As a result we felt particulary attached to seeing this wedding happen and truly wish only the best to this wonderful couple - okay maybe I am tired and maybe I am getting too emotional....  Guests arrived to champagne and .. sparkling water at this cocktail style event

just one of the stations you could stop at and rest for a sec.  Peter and Drew at Blooms did the floral work with East and Main doing dinner.  We served wines from our bar - an open bar at that  - and with the band featuring many friends of the bridal couple playing through the evening which took on a wonderful life of its own. But I am ahead of myself - the ceremony took place in the barn.

a bit of a cool spring we had extra heat in place

and in this picture we have another view of the set-up


Wishing all the best we were John and Pam, Livvy and Kiersten, Elizabeth and Lynne onh and me...
