It’s not often we get to do a wedding for one of our own – never mind two of our own!
GG Wedding planner Victoria Sorensen and Assistant Chef Tim Mueller took that long awaited walk down the aisle this weekend. Surrounded by their family, friends and co-workers Tim and Victoria exchanged vows at their garden nuptials in the amazing Eugene O’Neil Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. Victoria was stunning in her champagne Rivini gown and plum Pradas - GORGEOUS! Tim, handsome as ever, gazed at his mate of some 9 years (yep – high school sweethearts) like there had never been a more beautiful woman in the world.
Guests were greeted with a champagne tasting that even included the champagne of beers, and then mingled in the sunken garden sneaking peeks at the couple taking pictures across the field. After the ceremony we were treated to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the grand White House on the center grounds. We nibbled on oysters and shrimp at the raw bar, indulged in imported meats and cheeses from the antipasti table and sampled miniature lamb chops and lobster rolls passed by attentive staff.
Dinner and dancing were held in the rustic barn beautifully transformed from a rough work space into a romantic and intimate haven. Our meal was a compilation of the bride and groom’s favorite foods including roasted chicken, shrimp saganaki, chicken tortellini and caesar salad. Waiters passed creamy mousse shots as we danced the night away and topped off the evening with a nod to Victoria’s childhood – perfect Funfetti cupcakes just like mom used to make!
We could go on forever about the details (and you bet we will in later posts). Sweet, personal – PERFECT! My favorite part, a personal note written to each guest, sealed and waiting quietly at your dinner place. It was a special day for two of the most special people we know. Thanks for letting us be part of it!
Don’t worry – we’ve included a few pictures so you won’t feel left out…
