Congratulations Heather and Jimmy!

This weekend I had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding celebration of Heather Hudson and Jimmy Cleary. They were married at Old Christ Church on the nicest Saturday afternoon we've seen in a while. Jimmy looked dapper in his creme tuxedo and Heather was an absolutely stunning bride. Her attendants wore floor length mocha satin dresses and carried flowers in colors of peach and apricot. Jimmy's groomsmen were in black tuxedos with coordinating champagne accesories. The ring bearer (all 18 months of him!) behaved beautifully as the flower girl pulled him down the aisle in a flower adorned wagon. After the ceremony, the celebration moved to Crabs on the beach where everyone ate, drank, and danced the night away. The bouquet was caught by the groom's sister and the garter was snatched up by the father of the groom (who is single!). The bride and her stepfather brought tears to everyone's eyes as they danced to 'Butterly Kisses.'

I have to share one story, now that it's all said and done. Heather will never know (well, now she will!) that one of the children at the party stuck their fingers into her cake before it was cut. Tiffany and I made sure that it was fixed before anyone noticed. However, that worry went away as I watched the bride and groom prepare to cut the cake. This was the first time in a long time that I have seen a groom brave enough to clobber his new wife with wedding cake! Heather was a good sport and returend the favor, so they ended up with matching icing masks. Turns out that a few finger holes were the least of her worries!

I now have a special place in my heart for Heather and her mother, Teresa McLellan, who treated me like a member of the family. Thank you both for being such a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to see the pictures!
