Ben and Tara Zachary - May 5, 2012

An absolutely perfect day, a beautiful setting at the Christ the King Catholic Church on the campus of  Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. and then there was Tara, the bride to be.  Her groom Ben waited anxiously to get their Special Day started.  At the rehearsal dinner, Tara told me that she was so very excited and had been waiting for her wedding day for her whole life.  It was here and she was radiant, smiling and so very happy.  This bride had a heart full of love for her waiting groom.  Ben was confident and his eyes were so full of adoration and love for his bride as she made her way down the aisle on the arm of her daddy Mike.

After the ceremony, guests entered the reception hall and were greeted by the awesome team members of Best Catered Events passing mini martini glasses of shrimp and grits, crab mornay cups, mini crawfish pies, cheesey asparagus bites and raspberry lemonde.

The buffet was decorated according to Tara's wishes with the citrus theme she loved.  The menu today was:
Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta
Fresh Gulf Shrimp Pasta
Teriyaki Chicken and Fire Kissed Vegetables
Chicken Salad Croissants
Assorted Finger Sandwiches
Fresh Crudite Cups with Chipotle Ranch Dressing
Louisiana Strawberries, pineapple, grapes, Sugartown Melons
Brandied Pineapple and Apricot Torte with toasted almonds
Pecan Smoked Beef Brisket and Pork Loin with freshly baked rolls

The cakes were provided by Gambinos, Allie Wester with Weddings by Allie kept everything on schedule, Warren Connerly photographed the memories being made, GeauxDJ provided the music and Luvette Walls with Memorable Events handled the table decor, backdrops and all the linens.  Best Catered Events provided the food for this event.  The team of professionals made this 375+ person reception flow smoothly.

Ben, I remember when you were about a year old because your family was neighbors with my mom and stepdad.  Tara, I remember you when your Aunt Cheryl married Steve at St. Isidore and you were in their wedding.  But mostly, I remember today, an absolute beautiful ending to alot of planning and the beginning of your new lives together.   CONGRATULATIONS and BEST WISHES.

Love, Mrs. Dianne
