Everything was Art Deco and Trains...
from the invitation with its railroad-like logo which Gretchen and Ray designed
...to the location, The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal
...to the Departure Board where the table assignments were on baggage tickets
...to the tables decorated in silver, black, and white with ostrich feathers and a silky runner and a photograph of a classic locomotive, a different photo at each table.
...to Swingtime, a band with the big band sound of the 30s who played the romantic classics of the time.
Many of the guests wore outfits from The Drama Workshop costume collection and others wore clothing similar to the 1930s styles.
All of the couple's children were part of the wedding party. During the dinner one table of guests burst into song...a chorus of the theme from The Brady Bunch.
One of their friends designed a special poster to place at the entrance to the Private Dining Rooms.
One last picture of Gretchen and Ray...
