This week at The Rankin, we have been preparing for yet another wedding! The weeks leading up to weddings are the best, it is complete chaos, but we love it! Preparing the final touches is where the pressure rises. The wedding planner has been in contact all week and we are making sure the The Rankin is at its best. The bride has been in and out, and finally it is time for the rehearsal tomorrow evening.
The wedding will be this Saturday, at 6pm, and will last until 11pm. Obviously, we have a long day ahead of us. The team, myself included, will be there ready to begin at 11am. When we first arrive the tables and everything will need to be set and ready by 3pm for the pictures and final walk through. This is the craziest part of the day because everybody is running in a different direction trying to get their task completed. From past experience, it will be a fast day with little time for rest.
These ceremonies are all day events because we have to perform, ” the flip” which is reorganizing the way the chairs and tables are arranged for the reception. While this is being done the guests will be enjoying their cocktail hour in the Atrium. Then at 8pm, the reception will begin. After the reception is over and the guests are leaving, we then begin our last task of breaking down the event.
I will have great, memorable pictures to blog about on Monday. I have heard the weather should be great, but you just never know. Keep your fingers crossed that we don’t freeze on Saturday. Everybody remember, The Rankin Gardens & Atrium when planning for a future wedding!
