Helen and Susan

Helen and Susan wanted it all for their wedding. It took over a year of planning but in the end they got what they wanted. Susan was active in a church but the denomination will not let same-sex couples marry. What they did find was a wonderful old hall that was just a raw backdrop, it needed a complete makeover. Red carpet, seating for 300, portable stage, sound system, and trucks of flowers were all brought in by the wedding planner. The transformation was total. The service was traditional and the music classical. Both women wore custom designed gowns. The rings were made by a local gold smith. Helen's ring had a diamonds that had been in Susan's grandmothers wedding ring, The reception was in a vacant lot next door. With a wave of a magic checkbook tey had a white tent, tables, chairs, dance floor, band shell, and around the out side lawn and flowers. Dinner, wine, champagne, and dancing was flawless. Every thing was caught by both photograph and the video. [Cost: $40,000.00 to $50,000.00]
