Lisa & Lowell's Knockout Wedding at Landis Valley Museum
Friday, July 1, 2011 - WeddingsWow! May 28th was a fun fun wedding day! Lisa and Lowell were married at Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster, and held a most excellent party with 300 of their closest friends! They saw each other before the ceremony to have some photos taken around the property with their wedding party, and you can see by the photo above, they didn't have a good time at all! They had so many great details and different things carefully planned and executed for the day, and by different, I mean DIFFERENT. They tried to get this to be as much of a party and less like a wedding as they could get! It of course went off wonderfully. So what was so different, hmmm... let me see...
1. Cocktail hour before the ceremony - allowing all 300 guests to really mingle and fill their tummies with excellent Indian hors d'œuvres catered by the Taj Mahal.
2. A unique ceremony "in the round" with guests sitting on every side, allowing for a very open, but yet very intimate ceremony. Guests and the couple opened the ceremony with group singing. They also did a tasting ceremony, pulling from Lisa's African heritage, which included tasting 4 elements - hot, sour, bitter, and sweet.
3. Um, Rice & Noodles (vietnamese cuisine) catered the actual buffet for the wedding. Joel was head over heels in love with this, as it is one of his favorite restaurants. Food was awesome!
4. Maggie Moos ice cream truck!! Need I say more?
Oh and many more things, like whoopie pies, DJ Freez Entertainment, a "soul train" dance line during dancing, etc. etc. etc. Lisa & Lowell were also lucky they won their wedding flowers for free from a contest that Carol Godshall from English Garden Floral held last year. I could just keep going on! I think I hit the "highlights" of the day. Lisa and Lowell were such a special couple to work with, and you could see that they are loved and cared for by so many. Congratulations to you two!
