Casey and Casey Married at Cochino Lodge
Two Caseys are better than one....Now they are Mr. and Mrs. Casey Erbey,  Casey and Casey Erbey. What an adorable couple. The wedding was at  Cochino Lodge under the Old Oak Tree. There were many guests who came to witness the marriage  and the joining of two wonderful families. The new couple will have great role models to follow.  You could not ask for a better beginning. The wedding days were filled with cooking and making ready the Lodge. Some guests walked along the lake, and others walked their dogs enjoying the beautiful day.  Dawn Gauthier worked her magic and created a beautiful backdrop for the families to gather and celebrate. Both and Bride and Groom had decor that reflected their interests. Huge deer horns decorated the tables.  Flowers were everywhere..  Dawn Gauthier created the huge arrangements that sat atop barrels leading to the alter. Dalton Gauthier provided the Sound of music throughout the celebration as well as announcing the events that took place.  Sarina Musick, the professional phographer, along with her second shooter, chronicled the event from day till dark. Sarina has a great eye and unique take on wedding photography. I enjoyed meeting the families of the bride and groom. A part of my wedding memories for all times.
