Saturday, September 12
The first thing we did on the wedding day was go to the barn where the reception would be held. We had punch to deliver for the hors d’oeuvres table.
This sign was beautifully decorated with flowers when we came back that evening.
I was responsible for the punch bowl, and this is the mixture I used to make a red punch – requested by our granddaughter, Jenna. To each gallon of punch, the attendant added a 2 liter container of ginger ale. I didn’t follow a recipe, just found red punch and added some real fruit juices. I thought it was pretty good.
An overview of the room from a ladder. If you look through the closest ladder you can see a white door.
This is where everyone would get their name tag which directed them to their table and seat.
We were here a bit the day before – to learn where to put the punch, ginger ale, and frozen ice hearts.
We saw Jeff, Chris, her mom, Jenna, Dustan, Diana, and Chelsey doing some of the setup.
The wedding party’s table.
The father of the bride was responsible for the marriage license.
It was fun seeing the room before guests arrived.
Thank you gifts from Dustan and Jenna – ingredients to make a s’more.
Can you tell this is a family of hunters by the centerpiece on each table?
We found where we will be sitting.
Our sister-in-law Dot, did a great job on the flower arrangements at the reception.
Jeff and Chris’ old truck was where gifts would be stored.
It was supposed to be outside, but rain was predicted, so Jeff pulled it inside.
