“I am dripping wet from top to bottom,” announced Holly in a bright, busy voice as she arrived at Forrest Place in the middle of a downpour. I had to smile hearing her optimism unhampered by soggy shoes and dripping hair.
When I arrived at the Broad St. reception hall Saturday evening, I was in time to watch the final preparations for guests and the wedding party who would be on their way from the wedding ceremony within minutes. As I chatted with staff and snapped photos, I was struck by the individuality and commitment of every person working. Usually I notice the details of flowers, appetizers and entrees, but Saturday night I just couldn’t stop thinking about all the people there behind the scenes making the evening run smoothly. Bartenders opened wine bottles, hostesses lit candles, and the chefs seasoned their respective dishes to perfection, intent on creating a gorgeous reception despite the downpour outside.
As much as a reception is a celebration of marriage and the love of one couple, it is also the perfect opportunity to appreciate those who create celebrations! While Tara, The Season Events’ kitchen manager, carefully arranged signature Sweetish meatballs on a silver serving tray, Haley, one of the evening’s hostesses, carefully lit each and every candle in the hall.They say the devil is in the details, and when the appetizer toothpicks have been sorted to match the event color scheme, you know the details are under control.
Throughout the evening, all of The Season Events staff graciously served guests and one another, making me thankful for weddings and amazing co-workers!
A few minutes after Holly disappeared to assist the bride and groom, I found her standing in the rain holding the end of the bride’s veil and following the photographer’s instructions to make sure the happy couple had their big day perfectly captured. The art of creating celebration.
