Royal Wedding Viewing Party Recap!

This morning over thirty people gathered at the Wadsworth Mansion to watch the Royal Wedding ceremony between Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton. Ten of the guests were Wadsworth Mansion brides anxiously awaiting their own wedding day. The doors opened at 5:30 a.m. and enthusiastic guests arrived wearing festive hats and fascinators. Those that weren’t adorned were given bejeweled [albeit plastic] tiaras. The Wedding ceremony was live-streamed on to flat screen televisions and guests sat at tables decorated with blue linens and red, white, and blue flowers. Everyone was most anxious to see Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, one of the details kept secret until she appeared outside the Goring Hotel. Guests stood to the national anthem of Great Britain and as the newlyweds rode to Buckingham Palace in a horse drawn carriage Executive Director Deborah Moore raised her champagne mimosa to toast not the royal newlyweds, but the Wadsworth Mansion brides. She wished them a fairytale wedding and hoped they would live happily ever after. Breakfast was served and each person had their own ‘wedding cupcake’ designed by Kim Terrell from Kim’s Cottage Confections.
