Megan & Warren also included a small stone in every program and just outside the ceremony site was an engraved vase for each of their guests to place the stone in to, along with their sincerest wish for the couple. Each centerpiece was a beautiful arrangement of Calla Lillies and Curly Willow (designed in-house by the Monte Verde Inn), which seemed to finish the beautiful look of the chocolate overlays.
In addition, the couple hired a gal to bring in doves, to do a Dove Release. So here is how it works, as the newlyweds recess from the ceremony site (as seen) once they make it about half way down the aisle, the doves are released. Once released, the doves circle near the bride & groom briefly and then circle once more above the site and then fly home! It is so pretty and unique. It was a lovely touch to Megan & Warren's already elegant day!
As hors d'oeuvres began guests enjoyed Caribbean Crab & Shrimp Cakes with Mango Salsa; Buffalo Mozzarella, Seasonal Vine Ripe Tomatoes, Basil & Grissini Bread Sticks & Warm Foccacia Bread with Brie, Fig Compote, Caramelized Onions and Prosciutto. Absolutely delicious!
The bride and groom wanted to give something not only personal, but representative of their independent relationships with each of their bridal party members. So they had the most adorable bobble-head figures custom made for each person in their bridal party, each figure was custom designed to physically represent the individual it was made for!
For some additional fun, they incorporated the fun PhotoBash Booth by SJ's Disc Jockey. Guests always have a blast engaging with the photobooth, putting on funny looking glasses or hats or something else that makes a great picture...even better!
Mr. & Mrs. Megan and Warren Schechter worked with Kelly Dalisa of the Monte Verde Inn to create the perfect cake for their perfect day!
Occasionally when our brides and grooms request recommendations for their family and friends to stay the weekend, we refer them to Jami's House. It's great place in Loomis, CA with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, this property is ideal for large groups! It has a swimming pool, enclosed spa that seats 8 and workout facilities are just some of the wonderful amenities. It is a nice private quiet place... it is truly magical!
We'd like to thank Megan and Warren for allowing us to share in their beautiful day! We wish you the very best in your future!
