Big wedding weekend.

About two weeks ago, I had a huge wedding weekend for work. I worked 21 hours in just two days – planning, coordinating, and damage-controlling a rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception for the great grand niece’s daughter of Wilbur & Orville Wright at their home. It was challenging in the sense that the house wasn’t made for weddings {the only other wedding was in the 1920s of another Wright descendant, and I’m guessing there wasn’t 200+ people there.} It was also a bit challenging because we had to flip the ceremony area and turn it into a reception area while the guests were still onsite. Both nights of the event were outside, and the weather was scary: 75% chance of thunderstorms predicted. I prayed and prayed, and asked my family to pray for good weather, and God blessed us with a perfect, beautiful day.



The wedding was personal and casual, yet full of grace and class. I’m also partial to sunflowers in a wedding {see why on my wedding page.}




The ceremony was very cool – a few friends and family of the bride & groom speaking about the past, present, and future of the couple’s relationship.




And here’s the ceremony area flipped for the reception. Took us 17 minutes to complete the flip. I’m not going to be humble here; I was really pumped that we completed it that quickly while the guests were all still there.



It looked like something out of a movie once the sun set and the Mamma Mia lights started shining. So pretty.



What a relief that all went smoothly. It was a fantastic event, and I’m very thankful to have had the opportunity to play a role in it!
