Gokey and Swann united at Cochino Lodge

Mr. and Mrs. Swann
Celebrate at Cochino Lodge

 Cochino Lodge had 200 plus guests at the Gokey
Swann wedding. Family and friends came from every direction and had a wonderful ceremony. The families gathered on Friday to begin cooking, decorating, visiting, fishing and walking the dogs.  Children enjoyed the lake and open lawn and wide open skies. Decor was created by the Bride over the last year. Detailed carefully art decor bottles were on all tables with dried floral arrangements. Bowels of Peanuts were put out for guests to enjoy while waiting for the bride and groom to join them for dinner after photographs were taken. This was a HIT from beginning to end. Everyone enjoyed the parched peanuts before and after the reception dinner. The dinner was provided by the Bride's dad and his friends who cooked it all on site. This was enjoyed by everyone and there was an abundance. Cochino is definitely 'pet friendly' and several had their beautiful dogs who attended the ceremony and celebrations. Music and dancing followed the dinner with family friend providing the sounds that put everyone in an even more festive mood. Photographers and Videographers were great. We are already seeing some of this work on my Timeline and Page so please tap into this as well. Becoming acquainted with the Gokeys and Swanns happened over the last year as they visited often so as to get it just perfect with no hurdles to overcome at the last minute.  The wedding went perfectly with so much help, talent and desire to make it happen.  Anniversary visits are planned for the future and I am looking forward to this. As well as little 'cochino babies' .
