Friends of the Bidikov family enjoyed spending some “getting to know you” time with Erin, the daughter of Blair and Valerie Johnson, in the intimate garden setting, against the backdrop of illuminated trees and the splashing sounds of the Bidikovs’ St. Michaela fountain.
In addition to meeting new friends, Erin was pleased to meet Classic Catering’s famous shrimp and grits, and the other yummy dishes for which they’re so well-known …
Erin and Luke enjoy many outdoor activities, including biking, skiing and hiking; in fact, he proposed to her while snowshoeing in December.
Erin, a University of Florida graduate, is a manager for Teach for America, while Luke, who graduated from Vanderbilt University, is applying to medical school.
Well-wishers at the party included Jacksonville’s Carmine and Suzane Dibiase (who, along with Igor, Luke, Andrej and Nina Bidikov, played in the Jacksonville State University Orchestra); neighbors Joanne and Ralph Parkman; Hervey and Robert Folsom (the couple who enlisted the Bidikovs as fellow C.A.S.T. supporters); Edgar and Elaine Burt; and Virginia Parker, Tatiana’s longtime tennis partner.
The young couple is busily planning their wedding, which will be Oct. 6 in Grand Lake, Colo., a scenic town known for its many outdoor activities. The ceremony will take place outside against a background of aspen trees in full bloom, descending into Grand Lake, the largest mountain lake in Colorado.
