Shotwell and Scott

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Scott
The Wedding was Beautiful.  The  sister of the Bride decorated the reception area with slate blue and Ivory .    White Lanterns adorned the tables along with flowers and candles and log slices.
 The linen table runners chosen were a beautiful slate blue along with napkins to match.  The Chair ties were blush  roses and toile of slate blue.  The ceremony was held on the East Lawn under the Old Oak Tree facing the lake. What a beautiful view for the bride and groom and guests.  The arch was simply draped in white. The Old Oak was in full glory. Huge, full of green leaves  and shade.  This tree has seen it all in the last 100 plus years.  A place of celebration and in the distant past a place of rest after work.  The lake was the backdrop for the wedding with blue waters reflecting the clouds.
Dalton Gauthier was sound and music and guided and moved the wedding along with the various wedding events.  The wedding cakes of the bride and groom were beautiful land done by Jullians of Groveton.  The baked potato bar was also catered by  Jullians. Friendly and a group of great and fast workers.   A lot of dancing and celebrating went on. A glorious gathering  of parents, sisters, brothers and other family and friends.  
A huge gathering of guests who were from  many points around the state.  Pennington, Groveton and Trinity County residents were well represented.  An adorable couple who are about to set out on an adventure all their own.  They are backed by guiding role models whose advice will carry them along life's paths. 
The Photographer was Nana With A Camera. She was everywhere until the end. Not missing a memorable moment.  She had photographed the bridals and they are exquisite. I loved them. A very talented woman who has been to Cochino many times.   The ministers message and the  ceremony seemed to be tailor-made for the new couple. 
They will live happily ever-after. 
Please Welcome Mr. and Mrs. Scott.
