Something Borrowed from Grandma

Marianne and Collin were married on a beautiful day at Linden Terrace Fort Tryon Park.  Fashion changes so much that let's face it, it is highly unlikely that you will end up wearing your Mother or your Grandmother's gown on your wedding day.  A lovely way to honour them is to incorporate some part of their wedding fashion into your own. Marianne did this in such a sweet way by using the buttons from her Grandma's wedding gloves and sewing these to the back of her gown.

Grandmother and Mother

Such a sweet picture of Grandmother and Mother watching as the Bride and Groom say their vows at one of our weddings at Linden Terrace.  This Bride chose not to have any bridesmaids, so Grandma is holding her bouquet as they exchange their wedding rings.  The look of happiness on their faces is priceless.  Beautifully captured by Georgina of Maggie Marguerite Studios.

Helpful Hint: Ushers for the Wedding Ceremony

Ushers greeting your guests and helping them to get seated for the ceremony is a welcoming touch for wedding.  I always like to make sure that the ushers know to encourage guests to fill all the seats by the aisle and the first few rows.  I never like to see empty seats in the first row.  I often ask the bride and groom to list out exactly how many seats they want setup in the first row for important family members.  We reserve these seats and make sure those family members know that they should be in the first row to witness their loved ones exchange vows.Here is a dapper usher from one of our weddings at New leaf Restaurant.
