Mrs Reynolds had done a fantastic job in getting everything set up in such a short time. The ballroom had been decorated with whatever flowers she could find. Most of them coming from the estate itself. The new Mrs Darcy had been rather okay with whatever Mrs Reynolds could find, rather than fussing over specific things. It was refreshing.
There was a full orchestra off in one corner. Mr Darcy had insisted on sneaking them in so that it could be a surprise for Ashley, but that hadn't been easy to do. They'd managed it, though, and everyone was getting set up while Mrs Reynolds put the finishing touches on the room. There were chairs everywhere in case someone wanted to sit while they ate. There were buffet tables all around the room as well with various meats and pies and pastries. Anything that anyone could want. As well as a few with punch and glasses to drink from. And Mrs Walker had done a lovely job on the wedding cake with all the sugar flowers and decorating. It was just lovely.
Mrs Reynolds had to dab at her eyes a bit as she moved around the room to make sure everything was perfect. She was so happy that Mr Darcy found someone that made him smile the way he used to before his father died. It was lovely to see that light in him again. And it was obvious to her that this wasn't just a marriage of convenience. They really did love each other. Once everything was ready, she opened the ballroom doors wide and propped them open for the guests. One of the maids commented about wondering where the happy couple had gotten off to rather than being there to greet the guests as they entered and Mrs Reynolds just smirked and sent the girl back to her tasks. Definitely not a marriage of convenience.
