Quinceanera was a big hit!

The parking lot and plantation house was full of party-goers this weekend. Miss Bridgette turned 15, thus a quinceanera was in order. The whole place was pink and white (her favorite colors). There was music, food, dancing and ceremony to celebrate her coming of age. Since the event, we have had 2 more inquiries about a quinceanera. The Plantation House is perfect for any occasion!...

1 weekend, 3 events, many happy people

The weekend started on Friday night with the 5th installment of a 6 week ballroom dancing class. Those who thought they couldn’t do it are now growing in confidence with each passing week. Will anyone be on Dancing With The Stars next season? Well, no. However, it’s not all about the dancing. It’s about spending time with your dancing partner. For 10 couples, Friday night has been date night for several weeks. In a different way than they have ever experienced, Friday night means laughing at your mistakes and enjoying the company of each other while holding on to each other.

Valerie and Mark were ready to make their love official. There were kids running around, bridesmaids and groomsmen getting into place, an officiant thrown into duty, father of the bride with a walker- determined to walk the bride down the aisle, and the wedding planner overseeing it all. Saturday morning the big day has arrived. Setup begins as the food is already smoking on the grill. Decorations are falling into place, the photographer is here to document it all, and the first time wedding planner is full of nerves. Later, the bridal party arrives. The men looked great in their sea green(?) vests and ties. They looked almost as good as the little boys who donned the same attire. The bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done and looked good enough to take to a wedding! 🙂 The bride was stunning in a silver dress. As all of the final touches were made for the ceremony, Mark is getting nervous. Finally Mark and the officiant are in place. Here comes the bridal party beginning with the lovely mother of the bride. As Valerie prepares to make her entrance, Mark is trying to not get emotional. Here she comes! Mark has to close his eyes for a brief second to gain his composure. She’s beautiful. They’ve been waiting for this moment for...
