Amanda and Bobby Got Hitched - April 9, 2011 - Loyd Hall Plantation

This couple was a pure joy to work with during the planning for their reception.  Both were very comfortable and laid back and absolutely the sweetest couple this owner has met in a long time!

Upon arrival at the beautiful Loyd Hall Plantation, Best Catered Events owner, Dianne Evans, noticed the breathtaking ceremony set up chosen by this couple.  Fuschia, white and charcoal gray were the chosen colors and when I asked Amanda why a few weeks ago, she said her first flowers from Bobby were hot pink Stargazers and roses.  She wanted that special remembrance as part of their day, and it was!

I loved the shoes the bridesmaids wore, the kissing balls hanging at the ceremony, and the cake!  Such a cake this caterer hasn't seen in a long time.  I didn't get the name of the baker, but have been promised a number for her, so call me and I will hopefully have it by then.

The favors were hot pink, chocolate covered mints in shot glasses and so cute.  The bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed their reception, visiting with each guest and smiling the entire time.

Best Catered Events enjoyed providing food and services for this couple and we wish them continued love and happiness!
