Gigantic hydrangea wreath marks the turn and heightens the excitement. Most of the guests arrived from the southern most part of Texas, a very dry, very hot location. Their Lady Bird Johnson respect for the living world of flowers and birds was universal. Destination Maine was everything they had hoped for and more.

The professional D.J., childhood friend of the family, arrived from Seattle with two turn tables and the know how, to please. As the guests arrived he began with Stevie Wonder's Castle of Love. Any Bride would melt. Full baskets of flowers lined his stage.
