Menu Monday ~

Greetings ~

Since coming back from East Africa last month I have had the fabulous opportunity to attend a number of tastings for some up coming weddings.  I have shared the photos on facebook and instagram but wanted to make  sure you my faithful readers were able to see all the yummy goodness.

Choosing a menu is hard and tastings are a great way to see how the food looks, how it will be presented and what it tastes like!  Here is a sampling of some of my recent tastings

So while I was busy in East Africa the team back at home base was busy creating some MAGICAL weddings.  We just received images from Michelle and Scott’s sweet affair courtesy of Rob Mould Photography. And of course we knew we just had to share!  Many thanks to the ever fabulous Ralph Griggs for officiating this ceremony. Enjoy

A New Angel Arrived in Heaven Today –

May 21, 2013 by 1 Comment

 

Greetings –

I didn’t plan on writing this post this soon.  I thought I would still have time to share the stories and photos of a most amazing vow renewal that we had the honor of being a part of – but as is usually the case GOD had other plans.  This morning at 6:18am Taira Irene Baughman received her angel wings and joined the Lord.

I had the amazing pleasure of knowing Taira for the past few years as both a wedding professional and a personal friend.  The world lost an amazingly creative soul today.  Her family lost their mother and her soul mate lost his best friend.  We here at A Magical Affair are deeply saddened by the loss and will never forget her smile or laugh or the opportunity she gave us to share in her most MAGICAL day.

We did want to share some of those moments with you as we believe she is smiling down on all of us and dancing in her red shoes right now in heaven!

Many thanks to the amazing Jeb Wilson of Nashville Photography Group for capturing these moments in time for the Baughman family.

A sweet note

We received this thank you email yesterday and I wanted to share with you because this bride did an amazing job on breaking down what we do! Many Many Many thanks to Jen for making this event a most MAGICAL one!!

Hi Jennifer,
I hope you are doing well. It was great to meet you after the numeous
email messages and phone calls to one another over my husband and I’s
wedding weekend. I wanted to email you one more time and thank you again
for ALL your help in making my now husband and I’s wedding so special and
so wonderful!!! You all made everything as perfect as perfect can get while
we were there


From coming to the room to get the stuff for the ceremony
and reception that day, to helping get everyone where they needed to be for
the ceremony and helping all things go smoothly at the dinner.. You all did
such a WONDERFUL job!! I couldn’t not have asked for anything to have been
better.. and I am kind of a picky person, and you all with your service and
help, wowed me. Everything was SO BEAUTIFUL too.. How you all organized the
chairs, the flower petals down the aisle and how the communion/unity candle
table was set.. it was great and allowed my family and I time to enjoy one
another before all the ceremony and before the day really began since you
all took care of those things.. so thank you for that!! And thank you for
your time and help leading up to the wedding answering my questions, and
helping me in making some decisions on things since I could not be down
there to see things, and always responding back as quickly as you did. That
was such a blessing!

I know we were at the tail end of the busy wedding season, so thank you for
hanging in there and still making my husband and I’s day so special.
From my family and I, we just want you to know your hard work did not go
unnoticed and we appreciated all you did to work and make my husband and
I’s wedding so perfect!! Because it really was.. I could not have asked for
anything more. You all definitely helped in making our day MAGICAL!!
Thank you!!
