One of the joys of being involved with wedding planning is getting to know the parents of the couples. These two, Vicki and Greg Klassen, the parents of the bride, are absolutely two of the most joyous people I have ever met! As you can see, they’ve released stress and anxiety to be present and warm of heart for the union of their daughter with her beloved. What a wonderful gift to give – and to receive – on wedding day!
There’s lots of design talent in the family, so what better place to look for outstanding escort cards, program design, and this cool easel sign!

That’s the bride’s mother on the left, and her sister holding her bouquet.
The bride and groom served each other communion. The last two weddings at Chase Court have incorporated a eucharistic celebration into their ceremonies. We hold dear to the belief that every spirituality, from none at all to nature-based to the most mainstream Christian and Jewish, should be honored and welcomed.
Their parents surrounded them in prayer.
And the kiss!
The ceremony transitioned into reception, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the library and foyer, and dinner and dancing in the ballroom.
What fabulous escort cards!
These are among our favorite ballroom winter decorations. They’re perfect for a cold winter’s night.
Uplighting and red accents added warmth to the ballroom.
Michelle And Edwin made an energetic formal entrance!
They danced a magnificent first dance, moving around the room with dips and twirls.
Their 119 guests were delighted and appreciative!
And there were cupcakes!
