enchanting, we were told. indeed. if only we could populate the setup with actual denizens of a true rainforest. but lest we ruin the real intent of this reception dinner, suffice it to scatter the treetops with incandescent lights in place of fireflies, bird silhouette lamps for live perching birds, the recorded calls and songs of tree frogs and crickets for the real sounds.
but the bride was so enamored with the overall look and feel of the decor that she canceled her booking of an afterparty scheduled at another venue, requested the musicians to setup their instruments right beneath the tree canopies and invited her crepuscular friends to celebrate her big day amidst all the enchantments till the wee hours of morning. of course that meant more to us than any mention of gratitude.
