A special thank you to Trish and Kathryn from Coconut Palm inn for all their help for this special day. I look forward to working at your beautiful venue again in the near future.
The dance floors relocated to the area right next to the dinner tent. It was decided so the people dancing would have some kind of protection from the wind blowing off the Gulf of Mexico. MB entertainment provided music for the ceremony as well as cocktail. Hot hors d’oeuvres were passed during cocktail hour by the staff from Caribbean catering. Hors d’oeuvres included shrimp, bacon wrapped scallop and chicken. During dinner to chefs created pasta dishes for the guests at their request with a variety of meat fish and veggies. Then we kicked off the reception right after dinner. Despite the cold weather all the guests danced until 10 PM (our scheduled ending time).Mr. and Mrs. Gilroy and their guests had an absolutely amazing time with little or no regard to the cold that mother nature had provided that day. Most of the guests were from Bakersfield California and enjoy themselves thoroughly.
