Their ceremony was in the large Garden pavilion followed by the cocktail hour in the upper koi pond wooden area where the professional staff at Gables tray passed -tomato & mozzarella skewers, fried mac & cheese bites, chicken satay and we can’t forget the grilled cheese sandwiches which have a special meaning for these two love birds. The guests slowly moved back to the pavilion garden for the reception. The garden was transformed with Fruitwood chavari chairs, lilac napkins, vintage chair sets and flowers filled with fresh rosemary and mint from Forte Floral Artistry.
