The tables were
covered in brown paper and decorated with small succulents in tiny clay
pots. The clay pots were “junk” in our friends yard so we asked
to recycle them and filled them with succulent trimmings from
another friends garden…these became our parting gifts…
We decided to supply the beverages…fresh
lemonade, beer and wine….simple. As for the food, we coined our wedding
a “summer potluck and wedding “….Ethans’ parents cooked up a
great BBQ and each guest brought an appetizer, salad or fresh fruit
ready to serve…it was amazing. Many of our friends are excellent
cooks and many also work at the local farmers markets so there
were many fresh exciting dishes to choose from…nothing went to waste
and there was minimal clean-up. We supplied biodegradable utensils and
plates as well.
The cakes were baked by four
of our great friends as our wedding gift. One was chocolate beet and
the other white chocolate with fresh rasberries…I requested a simple
decoration of organic flowers and they chose lavendar…
We couldn’t have asked for a better
photographer to capture our wedding…we knew when we chose Kirsten
that she would capture the true essence of the day in a natural and
honest way…the images were captured with film and came out beautiful…
We wouldn’t have changed a thing
about our wedding…everyone was loving and content in the outdoors….with
great food, acoustic tunes and sunshine…
Nancy, thank you again for coming on the site today and giving us a peek into your wedding. It was marvelous and we wish you both a lifetime of happiness. I also wanted to thank, Kirsten, for taking the time to send over her incredible images!
