Wedding Day Cocktail Hour

After the ceremony at the bandstand, the bride and groom and family stayed to take pictures in the gazebo and on the beach, so back at the house, we decided to entertain waiting guests with a cocktail hour that included dee-lish frozen mango bellinis (made with mango nectar, champagne and crushed ice)served with an assortment of appetizers:cheese and crackers,hummus and pita chips, swiss mini-quiches (that quickly disappeared) and a beautiful fruit bouquet by Edible Arrangements.

Because I had to stay at the gazebo for pictures, setting up the cocktail hour would be a dilemma for me. But thanks to David's daughters, Jess and Amanda, and my niece Amanda, this worked out fabulously. I drew up a couple of table diagrams, showed them where everything was and they set it all up for me and started the music and the bellinis! Thanks girls!
