It was just lovely. J. and I attended the wedding of one of his bosses, and it was one of the most elegant and beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. The ballroom reminded me of a hotel I stayed at in Bermuda, and even the rain outside gave it that same ambiance. I go to weddings without my ‘work hat’ on, not as the wedding expert, but I still notice the most amazing small details. The grass base at the bottom of the centerpiece vases, the chocolate spoons, the rose petals lining the aisle runner, the floral pieces decorating the chuppah, warm sake served with the sushi, and those crabcakes! I saw the smiles on the bride’s parents’ faces, the gorgeous gown the bride had on, a donation to the Lance Armstrong foundation in lieu of favors (nice!!) and was very impressed by the servers coming back to offer additional entrees to anyone who might want one. We had some takers at our table.
J.’s friends and colleagues are terrific, and of course he is too. Very happy to find out that he can dance! And he gets extra points for pulling out my chair and draping his jacket over my shoulders on the way back to the car. He was raised well, so kudos to his mom.
Now that the weekend bliss has worn off a little, I’m on my way to Gotham Hall in New York City for a bridal expo…getting a late start due to production issues and graphics captioning for the new book that’s in the pipeline right now. It’s the little details that add up…
Best wishes to Brett and Joanna for a very happy future together!
