We must give a huge shout out to all the 2010 Cedarwood couples who attended our annual “planning and design open house” on January 30. Despite the most significant snow we’ve seen in several years, 120 of our expected 170 guests attended! Those that could get here said it was well worth the extra effort and white knuckles it took to attend!
Ace Photography and Dove Wedding Photography were at Cedarwood to talk about their work and share images of previous Cedarwood weddings. Thanks to Arline Beets and Whitney Carlson for taking photographs of open house floral and decor to share with Cedarwood blog readers!
First to arrive: Ace Photography’s shots from the day featured on this post, Open House Design Part 1! Kick back and take notes on what you like. We’d love to hear!
Guests were able to see 18 Cedarwood-designed reception table displays in addition to floral and decor ‘bling’ throughout the house, barn and pavilion. Thanks to Liberty Party Rental for allowing us to showcase some speciality linens and Grand Central Party for tenting additional display space.
Patty Cakes offered an amazing array of scrumptous cake flavors for guests to sample and showcased a couple of petite cake designs. Love this casual, whimsical butterfly design (above) which could be a fun spring or summer groom’s cake! A Dream Come True Catering and Chef Christopher delivered some delicious food — my fave on this cold day: Creole shrimp and Okra Gumbo Shots!!!
Rob Higginbothom, Nashville Wedding Guitarist, strummed his guitar magic and the Ace Photo Booth gave guests a chance to play around and take home photo memotos from the day.
Special thanks to the exceptional vendors who participated, including Viva Valet for making the snow less of an obstacle for guests and the open house experience more upscale! If you want to pamper guests with valet service on your wedding day, this is the go-to service! Dak and Lynn also offer Rolls Royce Limos for sensational send offs and special pricing for Cedarwood couples!
Happy Wedding Planning to brides everywhere! Cheers for stopping by the Cedarwood blog!
Thank you Ace Photography for sharing these images. Next post – photos from Dove Wedding Photography in “Amp Your Style : Open House Part 2!”
