Despite the rain, Saturday, August 20th 2016, was the perfect day for Bill and Rita's wedding. Close friends and family gathered around them, to witness this special occasion.
At 3:30, guests began to arrive for the ceremony, which took place in the Terrace Room at 4:00. As everyone made their way inside, they were able to observe the beautifully decorated room, which consisted of alternating apple green and pink overlays on the tables, as well as alternating apple green and pink sashes, which were tied around each chair, in a bow. To add to this, the bride chose pink lilies, which gave the Terrace room a bright and cheerful feeling.
For the ceremony, friends and family traveled from near and far. Bill's mother flew in from Orlando, and Bill's uncle, who officiated the wedding, had come in from Texas.
After the ceremony, the staff began to walk around the Terrace room, offering appetizers to guests. Bill, an employee of the Days Inn, along with his bride Rita, chose to have a fruit and vegetable tray out for the guests, as well as mushroom caps stuffed with crab, to be passed around.
As the time for dinner to be served approached, there were toasts made with sparkling cider. To start off, everyone was served a fresh salad. Once the guests were finished with their salads, they were called up table by table, to the buffet. The bride and groom selected 2 entrees, which were poached salmon with hollandaise sauce and braised beef short ribs. To go along with the entrees, Bill and Rita also selected buttered parsley redskin potatoes and a cauliflower, broccoli, carrot medley.
Following dinner, the couples beautiful cake, which was made by Deanna Zimmerman, was served for dessert. After dessert, DJ Tim Young got the party started. During the couple's first dance, everyone's eyes were on them, especially the bride, who looked beautiful in here dress, compliments of Arnella's Dress Shop.
