Wedding Preview Day at Cates House

Sunday afternoon’s Bridal Show at Alabaster’s Cates House was deemed a success by all who were involved.

For many years, the Cates House was reknowned as the Meadowlark Restaurant.  Recently,  Kingwood Church in Alabaster bought the facility and is now offering it as a venue for garden weddings, corporate meetings and other special events.

Our Dolce Duo has had the pleasure of providing music for a number of weddings at Cates House and with each meeting, our admiration, respect and affection for executive director Brenda Lee continues to grow.  Brenda is professional, warm, and genuinely caring towards her clients and vendors.

And what a great group of vendors it was on Sunday!   Having worked on past weddings together I so enjoyed speaking again with Gary of Rush Video.  And it was a pleasure to get together once more with Stacie and Dana of Stacie Collins Photography.  Tiffany’s floral arrangements (Studio Flowers) were as creative and charming as ever and Charles Side’s displayed photography was impressive.   Ron Marko (Vintage Auto), along with his latest purchase (Rolls?  Bentley?)  was on hand to talk cars.  Personally, I’m dreaming for a ’57 T-Bird.   Mr. Burch’s groom’s t-shirts were a big hit.  Hair styling and make-up were being offered by Amy Ledford, Candy Gonzales and Denise West.

When all was over…we ate!  What wonderful food…attractive and tasty.    For dessert: decadent cakes (chocolate ganache and white almond) by Amanda Combs.    A nice day.

Thank-you so very much Brenda!
