Fun weekend in Atlanta making wedding plans

Category: Sharing Garden photos | Posted: Tue Jan 26, 2010 2:18 pm

The weekend began with a miserable 3 hour drive to Atlanta in heavy rain and gusting winds. It was quickly forgotten when we entered the wedding show at the elegant Four Seasons Hotel.

We were greeted by waiters passing trays of champage cocktails garnished with lovely orchids. As we walked around admiring the amazing displays created by the wedding vendors we were treated to an amazing array of appetizers, pastries and wedding cake.

Unfortunately, I did not have my camera :( . Each corner of the grand ballroom featured a wedding display in each of the four seasons. The flowers, tablesetting and accessories were just stunning. It was like being in a fantasy. I wish I had photos to share. I am running out of adjectives trying to convey the beauty of the event.

My daughter, Kindra's, wedding will be October 2nd at the Cator Woolford Gardens. The wedding, cocktail hour and dinner will be in the gardens...weather permitting. (I will be asking for your prayers as the day arrives.) The dancing and cake cutting will be inside in their atrium room.

The Cator Woolford gardens are on the grounds of an old estate which has become the Frazier Center...a center for handicapped childen and adults. The funds they raise by renting out the gardens goes into the budget to run the center. It is not a residential program...the activities run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Part of their therapy includes planting in the gardens but they have a staff that maintains the overall landscaping and maintenance. We love the gardens and the concept that supports the Center.

Yesterday we met with the florist, loved her ideas and personality. My favorite was that when we moved into the atrium for dancing she and her staff would break down the flower arrangements and make small bouquets to pass out to the guests as they leave.

To be continued.

This wedding thing is sounding very interesting, Gail. It's just amazing --all the aspects of the wedding that you are explaining.
