Review of Process to Date
Within the last month many things have been decided. The wedding date has been determined by the bride (Callie Rose) and groom (Michael) to be June 28th and 29th, 2008. It will be a two day event and a blend of Jewish and Christian ceremonial traditions. The location of the first day will be in the garden of Callies mom (Mary) and the second day in Michaels parents (Sharon and Jim) backyard. The first day (75 guests) will involve a wine and cheese buffet to begin at 7:30 PM (beginning of Shavous) with the ceremony to begin at 9:00 PM. A light sit down dinner will be served (organic salad greens grown in Mary's garden topped with grilled fresh Lake Michigan salmon caught by brides uncle Pierre, choice of 2 organic homemade soups, organic quinoa/cilantro salad, whole grain rolls, and beverage. Bridal Cake will be a cheesecake (TBA) from a local vendor. The dance floor will be graced with the sounds of light jazz quartet, sting lights, while guests intermittently visit the beverage tent with homemade chocolate truffles. Day 2 (200-250 guests) will be less formal, a picnic with buffalo burgers, organic side dishes, homemade pies, and beverages. Music will include the sounds of family bands and an IPOD playlist system. There will be lawn games, and other family activities (TBA) as well as the gift opening.
