A Wedding Renewal Vow at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast
We were a part of the sweetest Wedding Renewal Vow this weekend. Craig planned the whole thing to be a surprise for his wife. He began planning in January of this year. He did not want her to know anything about it. He worked very hard to get every detail correct. Planning an event like this is not easy with an hour and a half distance from home.
It went just as he had planned. They left the B&B after breakfast on Saturday to check out Andalusia. After lunch he took her to the movies for an afternoon showing. While in the movies, their friends and family gathered at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast. They worked very hard decorating the chapel and reception center. Sweet Gum Bottom catered the reception.
When everything was completed they took their places in the chapel for the big surprise. When Craig and his wife returned from the movies, they pulled in to take a look at the chapel. It was being built when they were here last, so he said he would like to take a look. As she was walking up to the steps she leaned over to pet the kitty cat. Totally unaware of what was about to happen. When she open the door the wedding march began and all of their friends stood in support. After a few minutes she regained her composure and they walked down the isle.
When the ceremony was over he invited everyone to a reception dinner. Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast had prepared a wonderful meal for them to enjoy. Craig chose the prime rib for dinner. It was served with a green salad, steak, potato, rolls and wedding cake (of course) for dessert.
Everyone had a wonderful time talking and visiting. It was a very special occasion and one that none of us will forget!
Thanks Craig for choosing us for your very special celebration!
