Tricia and Marc had a lovely ceremony this past Friday night at the Joclyn Castle in Omaha.
What a beautiful place to hold a ceremony and reception. They had a harp and trumpet duet during their ceremony, and Tricia’s longtime friend composed and sang an original song in their honor. The cake, from the Cake Gallery, was delicious – or should I say cakes? 6 cakes, each with a different (and yummy) flavor were served for a wonderful dessert. Their DJ, T-Roy, did a great job of MC-ing, getting guests out on the dance floor and overall creating a fun atmosphere for the reception.Tricia and Marc had moved their wedding date from December to July at the end of May. She realized fairly quickly that that was a difficult thing to do – and that scheduling her wedding for a Friday night made venues, wedding professionals, etc. much more available than trying for a Saturday date. Sunday afternoon weddings are another nice option when short planning times crop up. (And, sometimes a bit of a discount will apply on off-dates as well – ask your professionals about that if you’re minding a budget).
Tricia had included her family in every aspect of the wedding – from her son “giving her away” along with her parents, to having siblings and relatives as the members of the wedding party and the other “supporting roles” for the day. This made for a very special and personal day for all of them.
