Andre and Yvette

Andre and Yvette

In October I joined Andre and Yvette for a  family trip to Disneyland. Yvette had no clue that Andre planned to purpose although he had been planning it for nearly a year. In front of hundreds on people he got down on one knee and asked. She of course said “Yes”! Everyone went crazy.  Not long after that moment we began to plan.

The Couple who live in a small town  in Washington decided that they wanted a destination wedding and choose me to help. Nothing like the pressure of planning a wedding for family.  After talking for several weeks a date was set and Gray Gables would be the venue.  They wanted a fall wedding which meant we would be inside for the ceremony and reception.

The ceremony was held in the center of the ballroom with the chairs arranged in a circle, reminding us that love has no begging and no end. The couple choose John Ross as their MC and musician and he played a beautiful rendition of Phil Collins “ You’ll be in my Heart” for their first dance. Toasting was short and sweet but the party went on and the couple danced until their car arrived. Sparklers were lit and the two were off on their honeymoon to Spain.
