What a wonderful wedding this was!! I met the groom TK when I was on the Local Cultural Arts Council here in Chelsea, a strong supporter of the arts! Melissa his lovely bride to be and I met over brunch at a local E.Boston eatery, 303 Cafe, www.303cafe.com. I immediately felt we were friends and I knew this was going to be a great wedding, a wonderfully, thoughtfully executed wedding. When they found themselves engaged and in New England (native Ohioans), they decided to embrace it and planned a fantastic Salem, MA wedding: a harbor side lobster bake at the historic House of Seven Gables. In in order to spice things up a bit they decided to concentrate their efforts on a couple of details that completely paid off in the end. Generic maid-of-honor and best-man speeches were doctored into Mad Libs, and placed at each table. They were perfect icebreakers and made for some hilarious pictures of the guests.
Melissa and TK chose Beverly caterer, Creative Catering, www.creative-catering.com, Salem florist Dave Eng Flowers, www.daveeng.com and DJ: Groove Entertainment, Derek Campbell, http://tinyurl.com/4ok2spp.
