There were trees by the tent poles, moss, branches, stumps, mushrooms, ferns etc...
Everything was so pretty and perfect. Steve even designed and made this amazing stone path leading up the ceremony area by a stream and the gorgeous birch Chuppah. I believe there were almost two tons of rocks.
I went into labor the day before their Rehearsal dinner and gave birth on July 4th at 8:10 pm right before the fireworks. Steve went back and forth between the hospital and wedding, even setting up and breaking down before and after our daughter Scarlett Lily was born. All the vendors seemed to know but I do not think the couple did. This will be a great story to tell future generations, will we ever let her live this down?

Of course, I never got to take any photos and barely saw any work until I got these nice photos from their photographer Marie Papp. You can check out her work at: http://www.mariepapp.com/

The desert table was nice. Covered with Moss, Mushrooms, bark, stumps. Maxine made the cake from Bittersweet bakers. She is probably the best in the Hudson Valley. Check her out at: http://www.maxinescatering.com/index.html
