B stands for Breathtaking Bed and Breakfast

River Lily Bed and Breakfast
So this past week I got a chance to sit down with Polly Cappuccio from the River Lily Bed and Breakfast located across from the Halifax River. This is a beautiful site to host your wedding ceremony and reception. You can have a beautiful tent wedding overlooking the river. This is a simply elegant site that uses natural to add to your event.

What made you decide to open River Lily?
I always wanted to have a B&B life style of meeting people and entertaining. Our guests have been even more enjoyable that I ever expected.

What is your favorite part of weddings and events?
My favorite part of weddings are the high hopes and dreams of the Bride and Groom. Events, birthday parties or anniversaries are happy celebrations that bring family and friends together and make good memories.

What's your one of your hobbies?
I love to bake good stuff like cheese cakes and cookies. I love putting together gift baskets with my baked goods, wine and cute & different things in them. I like to read to learn most anything. I like cook books and positive books.

What sets your ceremony and reception site apart?
The River Lily is the perfect site for weddings with our sweeping Halifax River views, our grounds and our romantic River Lily Bridal Suite with gold chandeliers. There is a need for a celebration site like ours. We are in the mid priced range, a beautiful site at reasonable prices.

If you could do anything else what would you do?
If I could do anything I wanted, I would do charity work with teenagers and people in nursing homes that don't have families to visit them.

How many guests can you accommodate?
We have six guest rooms and we can accommodate up to 14 guests. We can have events on our grounds for up to 150 guests.

Do you have a slogan?
Our slogan is: You are expected when you arrive and you will be missed when you leave.
And of course we cannot forget about her husband Artie who helps her run the inn. Artie is an extremely talented musician, writer, singer, and artist. He loves being with people. His favorite thing to do is hang out with his kids and two grandsons.

Thank you!!!

This past Saturday was the beautiful wedding of Stacy and Ray. Jen and I had such a wonderful time planning this joyous occasion and truly love the couple and their families. Below, is a wonderful thank you from the parents of the bride to us and I just had to share:

Dear Jen and Jenna:

We just want to thank you for coordinating a flawless wedding. The effort that you both put in was as professional as anyone could have wanted. I can't imagine trying to do this ourselves. It would have been a foolish mistake.

Trying to arrange and coordinate all the vendors, the church, the rehearsal party and then the wedding would have taken all the fun out of just sitting back and just enjoying the whole journey.

Simply put, it was a stress free event for all of us and you made our daughter's wedding a special event.
