Susanna and Lynden designed their Woodend Mansion wedding to be a family and kid-friendly event. The outdoor setting lent itself the games played during the cocktail reception. Susanna and Lynden also embraced seasonal summer food, featuring strawberries in their specialty drinks, first course salad and wedding cake. And they certainly did not overlook that their venue is home to the Audubon Naturalist Society – a bird motif was used as well.

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all your help with the wedding. Lynden and I both really appreciate all the hard work you put into making it a great day for us. And the good news is - we really enjoyed it! And I know that wouldn't have been possible if you hadn't been there to make sure everything was getting done - so thank you, very very much.-Susanna and Lynden
