It was a rainy day Allison married Will. But it was a beautiful day. And an even more beautiful evening. It rained during the ceremony, but magically cleared for the reception. The young couple had a huge wedding party, and a large guest list. Surrounded by all their family and friends they were married under a white canopy in front of a beautiful cross. The wedding party proceeded to the tent with matching umbrellas. When they entered the tent, a staff person at the back of the chairs quickly took the umbrellas.
Following the ceremony was dinner and dancing. The guests enjoyed passed appetizers of roasted squash bites with pumpkin seed pesto, pear, cowgirl creamery triple cream cheese tarts, and prosciutto Americano. In addition, in stations around the room, guests were treated to beef tenderloin sandwiches, a green salad with pecans and cranberry vinaigrette, sesame sweet potato and russet potato home fries, shiitake mushroom pizza, grilled shrimp kabobs, roasted vegetable and Mt. Tam cheese Cuabatta rolls, and a cheese board with fruit and crackers.
The couple had a romantic, organic feel to their floral and design elements. A beautiful tree trunk with floral accents in the center of a buffet table was a wonderful touch.
The cake was adorned with olive branches and topped with a wreath of fresh lavender.
The bride and groom left in style—in a vintage convertible.
