Britney and Matthew Felder - 05.12.12

Britney Glaser and Matthew Felder exchanged vows and pledged their love to one another on Saturday, May12, 2012 at the beautiful Greenwood Plantation in Saint Francisville, Louisiana surrounded by their families and friends.

Rain forecast called for a change of plans for the ceremony and a tent was brought in for the occasion.  The vintage look of the decorations and all the special touches and details made for a wonderful evening.  There were touches of white, burlap and lace scattered here and there as well as a sprinkling of vintage memorabalia.  Framed pictures of Britney and Matthew were everywhere. 

Best Catered Events provided food as well as Britney's grandmother and Uncle.  Julie, Matt's mother,  made the groom's dessert which was Chocolate Delight, a real crowd pleaser.  Grandma made the mini pecan tarts which served as the bride's cake.  Mason Jars were the favors and guests enjoyed their favorite raspberry iced tea or lemonade all evening and then took them home with them.

Dr. Jazz provided the music and everyone enjoyed the melodic selections and the live band.  An absolute fabulous ending to a wonderful day.

Here are some pictures of the Special Day!  A picture is worth a thousand here are about 20 thousand, enjoy.

Britney and Matt, we are honored that you chose Best Catered Events as your caterer.  Best Wishes and Much Happiness from this side of Louisiana!
