Cameron, Kristina and their guests were lucky. The River Ridge Golf Club in Raleigh moved all the festivities inside beautifully and while it blustered and blew outside, and it did, we were all safe and cozy inside. I especially wanted to write this blog because the wedding professionals that created their ceremony and reception did a stellar job in making the weather a non-issue. Elissa, the catering manager at The River Ridge, is wonderful. I've worked with her before and she goes the extra 100 percent to make sure, no matter what happens, it will all turn out fine.
Jungiro Sumikawa was their flexible and understanding photographer. I can't wait to see his photos. The ones you see here are from my Droid. Triangle Catering did their catering, calmly setting up and serving canapes in much less space than anticipated but everything gracefully presented and served.
And all these wonderful floral arrangements were made by Fresh Affairs florist. You can tell they were intended for a much larger setting (that wonderful expanse of green you can see out the window). I'm just glad there was room to use them all.
I also love to work with DJ Mike Morse of Mike Morse Entertainment. He's another professional that you can trust to flow with any changes easily and seamlessly.
Their cake was by Swank Cake Design. Kristina designed the decorations in her favorite color orange.
I drive home after a wedding like this feeling blessed for being able to be there for the couple, AND for working with such great folks.
Kristina and Cameron are starting their married life blessed with the love and support of many people. I wish them all the best!
