40th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal Party

Hello all!

I am excited to share photos from the 40th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal party thrown July 31st, 2011 at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing.  Bonnie and Wayne renewed their vows overlooking the James River and the Richmond skyline.  The day was beautiful, and not overly hot as it tends to be here in Virginia.  The intimate vow renewal took place in the early evening, followed by a cocktail hour and hor’s d’oeuvres.  As the party went on, the sun began to set which set the stage for beautiful family portraits.  The cake boasted two delicious layers of perfectly sweet cake, the top layer hiding a surprise for Wayne: yellow cake with Bavarian cream filling or Boston Cream Pie.  I think he ate that whole layer himself! I am so happy to have been a part of this celebration as a {new} family member and the event coordinator.  Congratulations on a wonderful 40 years of marriage.  This is certainly something to celebrate!

This color scheme was one of 2 presented to Bonnie for her party.  She was on the border between a more dramatic Charcoal and Berry Red color palette or this winning Pale Blue and Seafoam Green palette.  Both of these choices were previous posts, found linked above.  Bonnie found coordinating seafoam green flats to go with her detailed dress for this celebration.
