The cocktail hour was held on the clubhouse patio on the property, where guests were able to enjoy a plentiful amount of beer, wine and cocktails. Afterwards, the party was taken inside the clubhouse to have a night of steak and halibut dinner, endless dancing with a talented DJ and even a slideshow put together by the groom himself. “While you can plan the most perfect of perfect days, what makes a wedding special are the guests,” says Katie. “We were surrounded by people we love, as expressed by the wonderful speeches given by the father of the groom, the best men and matron of honor. Additionally, the slideshow prepared by the groom represented a good majority of the guests, and really showcased our relationship.”
