Plot to Bring Two Friends Together
So, when Sarah and John got engaged, and the serious wedding planning kicked into gear, Sarah chose Lindsey to be her Maid of Honor, and John chose Logan to be his Best Man. They hoped that by putting these two romantics in such a beautiful and emotional setting, dressed to the nines, and in a position where they will have to dance and be together for the marriage toast and dinner, Lindsey and Logan may finally get the chance to see how much they have in common. What gets more dramatic than a wedding and reception? It’s perfect.
Lindsey is an interior decorator, and has an eye for beautiful, well made, expensive furniture and accessories. She has a great sense of color and design, and since she was able to borrow money from her parents to start her own business, it’s finally turning a profit. Her customers are loyal and word is spreading about her terrific sense of style. It is classic, with her own twist of lovely fabrics, good art, and comfortable, yet lavish look and feel. Venus in Leo people do everything on a large scale, and each room or home Lindsey works on is a showcase. One of her great rooms was just featured in a popular interior decorating magazine, a real boost to her reputation.
A Natural in the Restaurant Business
Logan is in the restaurant business. He bought a local place with an old friend who loves to cook, with some money he inherited. Sun sign Leos and Venus in Leo people are generally lucky when it comes to winning prizes and getting money. Good things just come to them easily. Logan oversees the administration of the business, and enjoys greeting and chatting up the guests. The place is turning a nice profit, as it’s located in the heart of the city, offers great food and atmosphere, and Logan has a way of picking up on what will become trendy before others do. So far this business partnership has gone off without a hitch, and it is becoming so profitable it may soon be time to open another similar place in a different location. Venus in Leo people know where they want to go in life. They want nice things, and once they zero in on a goal, they are steady and will stay on course until they reap success.
A Lovely Wedding and the Plot Thickens
Sarah and John's rehearsal dinner went off without a hitch, and the crowd was happy and full of anticipation about the big day! The next afternoon at the wedding, Sarah looked stunning in her old fashioned, ivory gown, wearing the same tiara that her Mom wore at her wedding, to keep her veil in place. John wore a black tux, and isn't there something sexy about a man in a tux? The bridesmaids looked great in a lovely soft green, sort of a sea mist shade, one they all were happy to wear, as it complimented all them.
We ladies all know how some Bridezillas pick really awful gowns for the Bridesmaids, and probably have been put in that position at some wedding or other. But Sarah had a big heart. And of course, both Sarah and John wanted the Maid of Honor and Best Man to look terrific too, part of the plot. Lindsey wore an emerald green gown, and with her long, dark mane of hair (all Leo women have great hair), she looked fabulous. Logan looked really hot in charcoal, with his longish black hair and blue eyes. Lindsey thought the diamond stud in his ear was a nice touch!
Once the pictures of the wedding party were taken and after the first dance, it seemed like the innocent "victims" of the plot were enjoying themselves, and they didn't mingle much after the toast and dinner. They talked a lot between themselves, but everyone swore they saw a spark!
Not unexpectedly, Lindsey and Logan began seeing each other regularly, and he proposed to her about a year later, at the grand opening of his second restaurant. The chef made a gorgeous white chocolate rose dessert in a raspberry sauce, and the lovely, ruby engagement ring was nestled in the petals of the rose. The whole restaurant was in on the secret about the ring, and included in the champagne toast to the couple.
It was an ardent love affair, since Venus in Leo people have strong affections which they are not afraid to show, and behave in theatrical ways which attract attention. Lindsey and Logan brought out the best in each other, and enjoyed learning about each other's careers, and meeting each others families and other friends.
Honeymoon in Paris
Making a Home and More
Lindsey and Logan worked hard before the marriage, so had enough money to move into a nice home they bought before the wedding. They knew they would have time to redecorate or make the home more as they liked after their two week honeymoon in Paris. Once they got back, they decided they wanted their home to be a unique place to relax, one they could really enjoy with their friends and family. And they hoped to have a large family someday.
So what Lindsey and Logan decided they could not do without was an expensive media room. It would be so much fun to have a home theater, with a huge movie screen and a curtain which goes up and down by remote, just like at a real theater. Big, comfy, leather seats for all the guests were a must. Lindsey made a special order for shades on the windows that worked by push button, and found great chandeliers with dimmer switches.
Logan found a business that sold old fashioned popcorn machines, and cotton candy ones, so the guests could eat all their favorite movie and TV snacks while viewing. All that makes a person thirsty, so the wet bar is very handy. Both of them are overjoyed to have this beautiful room to show off in their home, and happy to see their friends enjoying it too. And the night family and friends came over to “christen” the media room, they were treated to a homemade video, featuring Lindsey and Logan, announcing that their first child was on the way!
Home Additions to Fit Changing Situations
Of course, the addition had to start on the second floor immediately. Logan had huge plans for the nursery, only matched by Lindsey’s. And of course, there must be two permanent guest bedrooms, one for each set of grandparents. They will want to be there often. And everyone needs at least one extra guest room, just in case someone arrives unexpectedly and needs to stay over. Wait, Lindsey decides it’s best then to have four guest bedrooms, each with an on suite bathroom and sitting area. Who knows how soon the next child will be on the way? What a thrill! A smaller extra room may not be a bad idea as well, for now it can be used as a home office, or playroom as the first baby grows.
And the property value will soar once the outdoor room and patio are finished. The pergola and pizza oven look fabulous, and thank God they had the forethought to put a small island with a refrigerator and sink out there. It’s so convenient to have all your kitchen needs outside, too. Then work on the gardens, pool, hot tub, and the cabana can commence. It’s a good thing they had the foresight to buy a good sized home on ten acres of land, and that both are owners of businesses that bring in lots of cash. They sure think of enough ways to use it. But Lindsey and Logan are living their dreams, having the times of their lives, and sharing it with all the people they love. What could be better than that? Do they invite people over to show off sometimes? Of course they do. But all invited are welcome to share in this adorable couple’s dreams, and they both worked hard. Well, they were lucky too. I warned you.
