Kristen’s search for the perfect venue started in the winter of last year when she fell in love with the place. She had terrific ideas for her décor, including tables named after places they plan to visit on their honeymoon in Italy. She used river rock as place cards, with a large river stone to designate the table where each guest would sit. Another clever idea was using quilting patches, with pens for each guest to write a wish. She plans on making a beautiful quilt filled with best wishes from her wedding guests.
