7-7-7 at the Old Village Post House

7/7/07 was a hugely popular date to get married all over the world, maybe the most popular wedding date EVER! I coordinated an intimate wedding which took place at the Old Village Post House in an historic part of Mount Pleasant. The Post House's rich and eclectic decor made a simple statement without having to do much more with it. A few flower petals, some tiki torches, and simple arrangements and votives on the tables didn't compete with the venue's unique ambiance.
Guests arrived and escaped from the heat in the Post House's tavern, then the Catholic and Hindu inter-faith ceremony took place in front of 50 friends and family members in the charming courtyard. After the ceremony the guests were treated to a cocktail hour and passed hors d'oeuvres, like crispy saffron risotto cakes with tomato ginger compote and grilled shrimp with tamarind bbq sauce, in the tavern area.

For the seated dinner in the Pitt Street Room the P.H. pleased the palette with such choices as corn & crab chowder and seared golden sea bass with carrot-mustard sauce. After dinner it was back down to the tavern for drinks, cake, and dancing (which was inside rather than in the courtyard with the lucky wedding day downpour!). The chocolate strawberry cake was made just down the street at the Village Bakery and proved to be a hit. The newlyweds stayed in the on-site 6-room Inn making for an easy, elegant wedding.

Congratulations Meghan and Neel Vasavada!
