1. We had a little over a year to plan the wedding as we got engaged on April 24, 2009!! We found the Rosewood Inn just by word-of-mouth through a good friend (Susie) and fell in love instantly. It was everything we were looking for, including a man cave in the basement (as Roy would call it). The Bed and Breakfast owners take care of many aspects of the wedding , including the flowers, food, music, cake, and much much more. We had our fair share of work and planning with the invitations, programs, and favors.
2. Next was the dress, this was not an easy task. After trying on many dresses I decided to take a break and search online. I found what I was looking for on the Maggie Sottero website! The dress is called the Milana, and it fit me perfectly like it was meant to be, no alterations needed. We went to Becker’s Bridal in Fowler, MI to purchase the bridal dress, bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dress.
The shoes were almost as important as the dress. I love shoes! Although I do not have a ton of them (from a girl’s perspective), the ones that I do have are very special and make me feel fabulous when I have them on. I choose the color blue (for my something blue), with a moderate heel since the events were outside.
3. Formal wear: The men wore gray tuxes, while the women had pewter dresses and shoes. My sister made the wonderful hair-pieces, which were made of silk flowers and feathers.
4. And of course we have to talk about the food which was delicious: The menu consisted of- Appetizers: bruschetta and toasted baguette slices. Salad: Traverse city with poppy-seed dressing. Potatoes: “smashed” garlic potatoes. Vegetables: glazed carrots, and roasted cauliflower with kalamata vinaigrette. Entrees: asiago stuffed chicken breast, and marinated brisket. Bread: dinner rolls (homemade).
We cannot forget about the Cake!! Vanilla with buttercream frosting under fondant. It was a very classic wedding cake and it was sooo good. Defiantly one of the highlights of the wedding.
