Our theme was inspired by the beautiful lyrics of Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle.
"But I remember
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; sticking
little white flowers all up in her hair."
Much like a butterfly, Spring unfolds slowly and deliberately and we present the glory of Spring with towering branches of forced blooms. Fibre optic lights, like many fire-flies amongst the branches, say "Summer is on it's way, too". Moss green chargers promote tranquility while a living moss base for our centerpiece sets a peaceful and romantic mood for the reception guests.
To coordinate our peaceful color palate, our satin linens elegantly blend with our Butterly garden theme and showcase our accents elegantly. Murano glass Butterfly place card holders display the names of Garden characters who love to feast on and in the thicket of delectable Four Seasons cuisine. How fortunate to have an actual Butterfly (menu) land at each place setting, "telling" guests the menu and wine they are about to partake!
Who hasn't shed a tear when a bride dances with her Dad during a wedding reception and heard these lyrics,
"In all that I've done wrong I know I must
have done something right to deserve a hug
every morning and butterfly kisses at night"
These sentiments are in part why we love the Wedding Industry and why we are here tonight.
