WEDDING: Searle-Thomas, Chateau Elan, 5/14/11

BRIDE and GROOM: Susan Searle and Ted Thomas
VENUE: Chateau Elan, Wine Pavillion

One of the main reasons why Susan wanted to meet with me, was that she fell in love with my blog ... I was on the fence about whether to get rid of the blog and go to a website, but after her comments, was convinced to continue the blog and create a website with general info that pointed to the blog (in the works).

You've got to love Chateau Elan ..... this was my first time back to Chateau after renovations to the Wine Pavillion. They did a great job.

LOVED this couple. Both Susan and Ted are very relaxed people who are totally in love with each other. So much fun.

The bridal cake was tall and elegant .... check out the Kiwi Bird cake topper. This particular topper was on Susan's parents cake and is the national bird of New Zealand. (Susan's dad was from New Zealand, married a nice gal from Boston).

The groom cake .... the cake decor was a gift from Susan's sister ... Ted does hunt, so it was perfect that his bride drag him from hunting to get married.

DETAIL SHOT of the DAY !!! Were these adorable toasting glasses placed by the groom cake. Not sure who made them, but I just loved them.

I'm anxious to see the pro shots !!!
Congratulations to you Susan and Ted. Wishing you much happiness.
