Monika and Tom's, San Juan Island Wedding in the Woods

I first met Monika and Fred at Isle be Wed , the only bridal show in the San Juan Islands. They had come to tour Lakedale Resort as the venue for thier destination wedding. They fell in love with the Lodge and Meadow, where they later decided to stage their wedding reception. One long "Farm Style" table was set down the middle arch way of trees. Carnival lights were drapped over head for when the sun went down. They paid just enough attention to detail to give it their personal touch with out taking away from the beautiful setting.

We had a chance to breifly talk about what they had in mind and the continued to email back and forth, until all the details had been worked out. Typical of couples that use my service,  they were commited to great food, great beverage selection and having a great time.

 PLEASE SCROLL DOWN to the bootom of this post to see their DANCE FLOOR. It is one of the best I have ever seen put together. They up-lit the trees behind with a rotating wheel of colored lights. To create a backdrop they draped a cord of long fabric streamers,  in various sizes between the poles holding up the lights.
