Port City Rentals constructed a large tent in the front lawn of the home and chandeliers and market lights hung under the tent and trees. Guests dined on crab cakes, oysters, roast beef, shrimp and other Southern favorites. Pollman’s Bake Shop created the four tier wedding cake and miniature dobash cakes.
