The Gardens at Heather Farms Wedding – Kelly and Kevin get married

April brings the best of The Gardens at Heather Farms, the simplicity yet knowing that you are surrounded by such a beauty of nature makes this venue a perfect spot to have your ceremony by the Gazebo surrounded by mounts of roses overlooking the pond, afterwards drift into the Pavilion adjacent to the gazebo for the cocktail hour to acquaint yourself with old friends (or new), family members, just about an hour after when I make the announcement inviting everyone into the reception room, from there on is just memories, great food, memorable speeches and a night of unforgettable dancing.
The above was true for Kelly and Kevin’s wedding but also every wedding I do at the at this Magical Hidden Place in Walnut Creek.
To be hones my last few weddings have been interesting because they all have had something in common “Music” well duh! right? what I mean is the styles of music my couples like but also know their guests enjoy: Oldies, Classic Rock, 80’s and a big comeback 90’s Pop and Hip Hop.
