THE ULTIMATE COMPLIMENT … THE WEDDING OF A FRIENDOR’S DAUGHTER!
Updated: Aug 3, 2019
In November of last year, we received a phone call from Mark Leggett, founder and owner of Arthur’s Catering, Central Florida’s premiere catering company. Mark quickly made it clear at the start of the conversation that he was not calling as a caterer but rather as a father of the bride!
He shared with us that his daughter Mary Page was engaged to Jordan James. A wedding date of Sunday, June 23, 2019 had been set and secured to take place at the beautiful Estate on the Halifax in Port Orange, Florida.
Mark asked if we had the date available and would we be interested in assisting. “Absolutely” was the response!
Mark and Susie go way back in that they both launched their businesses in the same year of 1989 and have worked together on hundreds of events over that 30-year time span. However, Susie was sure this one would be the “ultimate” event!
It is indeed the highest of compliments to be chosen, from among hundreds of other planning companies, to handle the wedding of an industry colleague! To say that we were honored is an understatement!
Mary Page and Jordan, flanked by their bridal party who included MJ (a very well behaved Australian Shepherd!), spoke their vows inside the lovely Chapel on the property. When the ceremony concluded and prior to their exit as husband and wife, they pulled the rope that pealed the church bells!
Mary Page loves everything Disney so it was only fitting that the cocktail hour would take place inside and just outside Snow White’s Cottage. Then the guests made their way into The Tavern which had been beautifully decorated as an upscale and romantic pub as a statement to Jordan’s English roots.
Of course the food was top-notch since Arthur’s catered the event! Everyone enjoyed dancing the evening away and gathering to share this very fabulous day with a fabulous couple!
A special note: As Susie pinned on Mark’s boutonniere, his comment was: “Sixty years of combined experience in this industry; how much better could we get!” Thank you, Mark!
