Jennifer + Ray's wedding flowers were designed with an ethereal and elegant, yet casual, feel in mind. They were married under "cloud" of manzanita branches, garden roses, ranunculus, anemones and hanging lanterns. For her bouquet, Jennifer wanted a soft, snowy, loose arrangement, wrapped in a personal scarf for an heirloom effect. Our always ingenious Alison Lueker hit the nail on the head and delivered the day-of, finding the perfect balance between elegant romance and casual whimsy with Jennifer + Ray's floral designs.
When it came to the food for their festivities, Jennifer + Ray went for a buffet style dinner and butler passed hors d'oeuvres. Fried green tomatoes with horseradish cream sauce and caramelized onions, and miniature New England crab cakes topped with ancho chili aioli were passed throughout the garden are after the ceremony. Tomato napoleon with fresh basil and buffalo mozzarella with a green goddess dressing, and coriander + cumin grilled shrimp served curried mango sauce were part of the dinner menu. Along with grain mustard and aged balsamic pork tenderloin and roasted cauliflower + dried cherries + toasted pine nuts. After dinner Jennifer + Ray cut their creative cake from Cakes by Darcy, delicious desserts from our pastry department were passed around, and guests broke it down on the dance floor, until the happy couple was swept away into the night.
