Emily & Gary's Wedding

The Challenge..... Catering your daughter's wedding and still enjoy it!
I got to pull out some of my vintage wedding cake toppers as well as vintage linens & cake pedestals for this display above the coffee station. We also displayed the bride & groom's grandparent's wedding photos.

Maggie Gillespie provided beautiful florals arranged in urns and vintage ironstone china. She also arranged an outdoor church like setting for the ceremony complete with vintage wooden church pews and stained glass suspended from a huge shade tree.
The Bride and my husband were carried to the ceremony site in a horse drawn carriage, making a dramatic entrance.

The Groom's Cake featured a Woodland design of ferns, acorns, mushrooms and leaves, to indicate his love of the outdoors. Ladybugs were added for the Bride. The Wedding cake was a beautiful creation with Monogram and presented on a vintage look cake stand w/ prisims and decorated with pale Hydrangas. Antique Spooners held cake forks.

Guests were greeted with an Apple Martini Station positioned on the porch of Alegria with a view of Wolf Creek.
