David and Leah's wedding was a true family affair with many of the guests contributing their time, talents and culinary skills. I was in charge of creative consultation, budget, timeline, vendor coordination, day-of responsibilities and coordinating fifteen teams consisting of over fifty volunteers, to make this one-hundred and seventy guest wedding a reality. The backdrop for this wedding was Melrose farm, the groom's family's 20 rolling acres of Virginia country-side. The ceremony was a short, joyous walk away down a wooded path to an old family home. The 90 degree May afternoon was perfectly sunny and a cold glass of iced tea was an ever-present indulgence for all guests. A beautiful fairytale wedding for a country gent and his uptown lady.
