WEDDING: Climo-Doyle, The Gardens at Great Oaks, 9/17/11

BRIDE and GROOM: Katie Climo and Joe Doyle
VENUE: The Gardens at Great Oaks, Roswell

Delivery #2 of the day:

I'm heading up 75 (because that is what the directions told me) ... and it wasn't until I got onto Cobb Parkway when I said to my husband (aka Mr. D.O.T), why am I heading to Marietta when I need to be in Roswell. He said: there are two Mimosa Boulevards .... one in Marietta; one in Roswell ...... so I turn around and fly like a mad woman. I was only 10 minutes late. Pat (the coordinator at Great Oaks) welcomed me and said "no worries .. I knew you would be here). Thanks Pat !!!

Joe named this cake "Papillon" (1973 Steve McQueen movie/butterfly tattoo/freedom). Katie was another bride who knew exactly what her cake would look like. A white flat finish adorned with the most beautiful silk butterflies. Thank you Katie (and Joe) for allowing me to create this cake for you. I can't wait to see the professional photos from Kara.

I didn't get to see Katie, but Joe came by to check out the cake .... I asked where his voice went ... he apparently had too much fun the night before and his voice was very hoarse. Clay went to find Reverend Deanna Lancaster .... it's always a pleasure to see her and I always get the best hug from her and after my day of delivering .. I really needed that hug.

She mentioned that she might cry during the ring ceremony ..... Joe wrote the following:

"The rings that Joe and Katie will place and present to each other today, in fact, were placed on the loving hands of Katie’s parents over 40 years ago on their wedding day. Katie’s father Dick passed away this past year, but his spirit & now his symbol of lasting love, will live on with Joe. Lou Ann can now pass her symbol of lasting love onto Katie, to remind her that her marriage may not always be perfect, but your love for each other is."

I've got tears in my eyes ... don't know how Rev. D made it through this ring ceremony !!! She did get a little misty during the scripture readings, however. There is a lot of love around this couple.

Congratulations, Katie and Joe !!! See you next year.
