A Wedding at Graeme Park: Lisa & Maurice

Lisa and Maurice were married at Graeme Park on a warm day at the end of June. Due to a glitch at their original venue, they had just a few weeks to reorganize everything and move the festivities here, but you would never know it by how beautifully they pulled everything off. 

After a quick ceremony by the pond, cocktails and hors oeuvres were served in the barn yard. The crowd is deceptively small-looking as many sought refuge in the air conditioned barn while they sipped and snacked.

Table settings in the Open Aire Affairs wedding tent were classic with blue and white linens, and centerpieces of hydrangeas, irises, daisies, and mumms.

On the dance floor, you may notice the guests are mostly all in white and neutral tones. But wait, isn't it against the rules to wear white to a wedding? Not if it is done at the bride's request ...

... because she wore a lovely shade of emerald green! The neutral colors on the guests allowed her to really stand out, and of course she can wear her dress again if she wants to for many anniversaries to come.

After a homey meal of ribs, pulled pork, mac and cheese, cornbread, and the like, it was time to cut the cake. Graeme Park board president Beth MacCausland was again responsible for this delectable beauty, which was a classic vanilla pound cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and decorated with blue and silver ribbons and hydrangea flowers.

Congratulations Lisa and Maurice and best wishes for the future! Thank you for choosing Graeme Park for your celebration.
