Happy Anniversary Heidi and Ed!

On May 17th, we celebrated the 35th Wedding Anniversary of my in-laws, Heidi and Ed, at the Mill on the River in South Windsor. Their actual anniversary wasn't until the 26th of May, but it was a surprise and we didn't want them to catch on to anything! We had a fanastic day, they were over the moon, and we couldn't be happier for them. They are amazing parents, set an incredible example of love and happiness and we would do anything to let them know how much they mean to us.

It all started with a simple idea, invite their friends and family to a gathering in their honor, and being the wedding planner that I am, turned into quite the affair. We invited 90 of their nearest and dearest to celebrate the occassion with pomp and pizazz!

The day arrived and we were busy. Running to pick up the centerpieces from the florist, Just For You who did such a beautiful job with the creams and corals. We arrived early to set up the room with all of our personal touches in coral, the symbol of the 35th Anniversary. Honey in jars labeled "Love is Sweet", mini "lamps" in with a coral glow, wedding pictures from 1973!, a coral topped card box, a coral cake, (which didn't quite hold up to the humidity, albeit, coral) and a shadow box frame with their invitation emsemble.

Here are a few pictures of the room as we decorated:

The food was delicious, everyone was thrilled, the appetizer display was stunning, and entrees left my mouth watering.

The cake, made by Audra Weisel was absolutely delicious as well, an almond confection with a raspberry-peach compote filling.

Guests danced til their hearts were content to the Jazz band from The Wildwood Groups They were the perfect size, at five pieces for our party and the perfect style too!

Here are a couple more pictures, one of my father-in-law, Ed and I, and one of my husband, Ed and his mom Heidi. Sadly, I didn't get any good pictures of them as they walked into the room. I was with them, so of course, that would have been tricky.

Happy Anniversary Heidi and Ed! Wishing you many more years of happiness together!
