Ten years of marriage is something to celebrate. One year ago, with family and friends gathered for an intimate dinner for 25, we toasted to a decade of "Paradise Found". We wanted a small celebration that would give us a chance to spend time with those closest to us. Almost everyone at the table had been a guest at our wedding.
It was a treat to be my own client and bring our vision to life. We knew we wanted to celebrate the colors fall and made a commitment to locally source as much as we could. To that end, almost all of the flowers were grown within a 20 mile radius of Beaumont House and we spent time in the fields foraging for greens. The majority of the menu came from local farms as well.
It's been said that marriage is about compromise and learning to embrace what your partner loves. In our case, I have learned to love professional ice hockey (Go Caps!) and my husband has supported my addiction to entertaining. As we were planning this little soiree, he was the one who pushed for the crazy fabulous tents in the backyard and made the final wine choices. I'm thrilled to share this little glimpse into our life at Beaumont House.
Thanks to Lace and Loyalty for featuring our celebration on their blog in September. I won't deny that it is great to have some wonderful creative friends who helped make our celebration one for the books! Check out the list of creatives at the bottom of the post.
