Dance Lessons!

We had our first dance lesson with Melissa Dexter at Delaware House in Bayview. It was sooooo fun!!! She is helping Bride and Groom choreograph "Chan Chan" as done by Buena Vista Social Club. It promises to be a nice surprise for our guests. Anyone who hasn't been to Delaware House should check them out. They are an extremely comprehensive space: everything from yoga and dance to physical therapy and spa facilities. Check out their website! The space is beautiful and full of great people!

Progress: starting to close in

Slowly, but surely, it seems things are really coming together. It's very exciting. The Bride is making a lot of progress on her dress. We adapted and fused two older dresses, but all the work is being hand sewn (very time consuming, but rewarding). We are starting to receive the handmade RSVP post cards. It is a relief that they are making it through the USPS back to us. We have nailed down a very professional photographer to shoot our event out of the kindness of his heart and also to build his portfolio. A family member is willing to video tape the happenings of the day. We have found both a dessert lady and a gentleman to cater. Our dessert woman is in the process of starting her own bakery in Bayview and is very thrilled to work with us (awesome!) and to develop an array of desserts, both vegan and non, and of course, cheesecake! Our caterer has offered to come on sight and use the produce from the garden to develop a local, seasonal, vegan and non fare. Great thanks to some friends of the Bride who have offered their gifts of music to sing some songs for the ceremony. Also, an ipod, wedding playlist is in the works.
