Fresh Affairs and his staff were busily setting up the decor and flowers. Due to museum hours they could not get in any earlier than 5:00 and the wedding was at 6:00. The Zanzibar room walls are paneled and at the end which we used as an altar area, was hanging a huge chalk board. But you would never know it because Lyn draped the whole wall with billowing white curtains then placed the two pedals with sprays of beautiful flowers flanked by floating candles. It was beautiful and transformed the room.
Rocky Top Hospitality was catering and Jenn Carlin, Catering Sales Manager, and her team were busy getting set up.
Cinda's Creative Cakes.
Marbles, were standing back admiring the stunning cake.
Carolina Harp provided the heavenly music for the prelude and ceremony. The ceremony was delayed starting for about 15 minutes because guests were having difficulty parking due to an event in Moore's Square across the street from the museum. But she kept playing like a champ! Thanks, Marilyn!
Following them was mother of the bride, Amsale.
Aren't these kids adorable? They are all Clarence's cousins. You can see that Elan, our ring bearer, was surprised to see all the people!
