Georgia Rafati and her daughter Jessica helped my son; Christopher Nelson and new daughter in law; Mandi fashion a wedding at the Tiffany Center that was the kind that brides dream about and movies are made of. As the benefactor of this wedding, the betrothed couple included me in much of the planning, which was fun. We used the Tiffany Center, and we had the ceremony and the reception in the Crystal Room. The room was divided for the ceremony, and the stage was used for their vows. After the ceremony was over, the gathered friends and family exited out into the foyer for the reception line, and then re-entered the Crystal Room from another door for the cocktail hour and appetizers. The dividing wall was pulled back and the tables moved and chairs set up and head table, and we had a dance floor. All of this was done seamlessly, with both Georgia and Jessica in attendance. They butlered appetizers during the cocktail hour, the father of the groom sabered a bottle of champagne, we had a special 9 liter bottle of cabernet that they decanted and served throughout the evening, we had guests from Germany that required a piano for them to perform during the reception, and there were muscians to co-ordinate during the ceremony and reception, and a disc jockey for the dancing. The food was delicious, their presentation at our dinner and appetizer buffets was elegant. I had guests telling me that this was truly the first time that they had ever been to a wedding that was just like in the movies! People did not leave early. The dance floor was always full. I can not imagine a more perfect memory for my sons wedding, which is bittersweet, because I have one more bachelor son that has yet to marry, and I worry that when he does, his wedding can only pale to the memory I have of the Rafati wedding at the Tiffany Center. The food by Reza Rafati was to die for, consider yourself lucky if you get booked with them. You can call me; Patsy Nelson @ 503-524-3902 anytime.
