I (We) Went to Your Wedding!

Sunday July 7th of 2012, Patricia and I set out for Southlake Texas to see friend and long time Casablanca member Michelle say I do!
 (Mr. Lacky & daughter Michelle.)
Oh it was a wonderful wedding, lake side at sun set. There was quite a turn out despite the July summer heat, and Patricia, Myself (& Kelcie in spirit) would have missed it for the world!
The weather couldn't make its mind up if it wanted to shine, or be cloudy and a rather brisk cool breeze swept in and cooled things off just before the Bride made her appearance. What I love about weddings is that moment where you can just feel all the love present for two people. 
(For the very first time, Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Levy.)
The reception was nice and Patricia and I could have eaten our weight in the wedding cakes!
I they were amazing!
 The guest danced and laughed the night away wishing the Newlyweds well! Which brings me to the second part of this post!
We have a tradition at the Casablanca, one that we started with Brett & Lydia and we have now made official. When one of our long time members ties the knot, they receive as a wedding gift from the Casablanca the Primary Mixing bowl set! We are excited and proud to present Michelle and Joseph with a set along with this note!

" -Dear Michelle & Joseph,
Congratulations on one of the happiest and most exciting days of your lives! Patricia and I are so honored we were there to be part of it! “Every Newlywed couple needs a set of Pyrex Bowls…”
Your wedding gift, (although they might just seem like some old bowls) are really quite special.  These are a set of the first of the four pieced multi-colored Pyrex mixing bowl sets that were introduced in the 1940’s, often called “The Primary color bowls” or the “ 400 series color bowls”. If there is any one set that embodies collecting vintage Pyrex this is it!  Your set is just like the one that we use in the kitchen of the Casablanca, and is our fun signature wedding gift to the members of the Casablanca that get married. We love you guys, wish you all the best, and hope you will visit often!"

With much love, and best wishes...

Beautiful Wedding! I love the idea of gifting The Primary Mixing Bowl set, so special! I was antique/junking in Round Top last weekend and came across the yellow bowl with a sticker price of $65. I almost fainted. The set? maybe... One large yellow bowl? No.

That is a great tradition! I'm sure it is one of the best gifts that any of your married friends get. Who wouldn't want that set? It's a classic!
