The beginning of Mary and John’s adventure began with a wedding at the Memphis Central Train Station. Family and friends gathered to make their day special! Amtrak wasn’t the only train in the station this evening. Mary’s cathedral length train was the talk of the night! Mary is part of the Details family….literally! She is my cousin! When she announced she was getting married I jumped at the chance to help out. This wedding couldn’t have been complete without the hard work of my mother (the person I learned everything from!) and the mother of the bride! They made all the bouquets and helped with set up and decor. I wish I had them for every wedding! Guests were in ‘awww’ as Mary came down the aisle with Gary Beard Chorale singing “The Bridal March.” The colors were white and apple red. We used apples in the table design to bring in the rich color. The groom’s family could not attend the wedding so a laptop was set up in the seat reserved for the Mother of Groom and the parents Skyped so they didn’t have to miss the big moment. How cool!?! After the ceremony guests partied and had a ball as the couple danced the night away! Before leaving in their limo, guests cheered for the couple by blowing train whistles. The perfect ending to such a special night!
Thank you Mary and John for letting us help with your special day. We had so much fun and wish you luck!
Gotta run and get ready for our next wedding here in Nashville!
