The Moms and Kara gather in Kathy and Delmer's room a little before 11 AM for hair and make-up sessions. At 1 PM Georgiana and I excuse ourselves to go get dressed. At 2 PM some of us are picked up by the wedding planner. We go pick up Paul at the condo then drive to the wedding venue at Alta Lake. It is a small pretty pavilion on the side of the lake. We all make our way over the snow down to the pavilion and are shortly joined by Paul and Kara's friends.
This evening the wedding dinner is held at Red Door Bistro. The French food is wonderful - from the foie gras and other appetizers to the different entrees selected by each person (I have duck breast and William choses bouillabaisse). During the meal the diners at other tables in the small restaurant also enjoy the celebration - one older couple even sends over some champagne and toasts with the bride and groom. A delicious wedding cheesecake finishes out the meal and a beautiful day.
We wish a long, joyous marriage for Paul and Kara. They are such special people and a special couple.
