Heather and Kirk hosted a beautiful summer wedding at RIVER HAVEN FARM, filled with personal touches from friends and family. Several of Heather’s friends came together to form a wonderful chamber music ensemble for their ceremony, crafting a special Ave Maria arrangement for the bridal party processional and generally delighting the guests with their virtuosity. Kirk and Heather’s friend and pastor, officiated the ceremony with grace and humor and touching anecdotes of Heather and Kirk’s early relationship. The joyful atmosphere continued through the social hour with fun lawn games and an old-fashioned soda bar, while another group of friends set up a Jazz Band and played great toe-tapping rhythms. DALTON’S NORTHWEST CATERING provided a sumptuous buffet for dinner, while the best man and maid of honor roasted and toasted the bride and groom with great good humor.  Dessert was a treat with a variety of delicious cakes from LAURIE CLAKE CAKES and a colorful candy display arranged by Heather’s sister and cousin.  A custom kissing booth crafted by a friend and a few fun props became the focus of a photo booth, with Susannah from PETER MAHAR PHOTOGRAPHY snapping the photos.  Once the dancing began in earnest, another friend stepped in to DJ, playing crowd favorites bringing everyone onto the dance floor!  What a great party coordinated by KIRSTEN! Congratulations again to Kirk and Heather!
