Be Prepared. The Girl Scout motto. I always liked getting things ready, laying out the tables for a party.

Setting up for the wedding at Steepside Ranch was one of those moments - puddling the blue velvet swaths on crisp white tablecloths, nestling votive candles in curls of French ribbon while the sun came out from the clouds as the bride's sisters reached into buckets of perfect flowers, preparing the centerpiece for each table. Finishing the buffet table inside with even more candles and magnolia leaves, edging the bandstand with rope lights.

The curtain is about to go up - its Showtime!
