October tasting part 1

Some photographs from our October tasting, courtesy of Heidi Roland Photography. The last photo was taken by us- at evening’s end everyone sang Happy Birthday to one of our upcoming brides- Leah. It was a fun moment.

The full menu is included at the end of the post!  Also you can find the contact information for all of the wonderful vendors- Frosted Fox Cake Shop, Sebesta Design, Synergetic, Blue Root Entertainment, Party Rental Ltd. Thank you to all of them.
