On Saturday November 23rd 2013 we were at Twelve Oaks Mansion in Mars Pennsylvania. The event was a wedding ceremony and wedding reception for Brenda and Alex. Guests began arriving at Twelve Oaks Mansion at 4:00 pm as we provided prelude music prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. The ceremony was held in the Library at Twelve Oaks Mansion and was presided over by Pastor Chris Marshall. After a 15 minute ceremony, guests transitioned from the Library to the main ballroom where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as the bridal party posed for photographs.
At 6:00 pm we formally introduced the bridal party into the ballroom and then toasts were offered by the maid of honor and best man prior to dinner. Dinner was prepared by the culinary staff at Twelve Oaks Mansion and was served sit-down style.
After dinner, Brenda and Alex cut their wedding cake and then shared in their first dance together as husband and wife to the song Tangled Up In You, by Staind. Next, the newlyweds shared in a dance with the bridal party and then Brenda danced with her mother as Alex danced with his mother. Throughout the remainder of the evening, guests danced to the sounds of DJ Pifemaster until the wedding reception ended at 10:00 pm.
