First, let me set the stage . . .

. . . and invite you to the biggest party we have ever thrown!

Please let us know you came and grab a program.

The backing of the programs is old dictionary paper.

This was my ocd kicking in.  I couldn't stand the ugly back of the dresser so I quick made a couple of paper garlands.  

Please come this way . . .

. . . and choose a seat.  Comfy red velvet theater chairs.

Don't forget to wave your wand to tinkle the bells when the married couple walks back down the aisle.

The makeshift alter at the top of the landing.

The ceremony was very moving and personal.  And no one fell down the steps!  

Be sure to grab a glass of bubbly at the bar for the cocktail hour.

There were oohs and aahs over this gorgeous old theater.  Yes, the lighting was atrocious for the amateur photographer that I am but I think you can still tell that the place was opulent and the perfect setting for a wedding.  I should be patient until the professional photographs are available but I couldn't wait to show you everything.

Next time . . . the details.

Oh my gosh, Connie! I didn't know your daughter got married at the Orpheum! What a gorgeous setting! I love to go to events there! Can't wait to see all the details. I'm sure all the stress was worth it. Glad you can kick back and relax a little now.
