October is here already! Which just goes to show that time flies when you're having fun, because it doesn't seem too long ago that we were enjoying a spring wedding celebration in Piedmont Park for Wendy + Chris. Their ceremony was super sweet and sentimental, as their closest family and friends gazed at the happy couple with Lake Clara Meer in the background. There was something so special about being in the heart of Piedmont Park and Midtown Atlanta for this wedding. It's like the whole world was spinning right outside, but Wendy + Chris made time stand still. We just loved it, and we know you will too, so take a look at all the delicious details of Wendy + Chris's wedding, shot by the skilled Anna and Spencer Photography.
After their dockside ceremony, Wendy + Chris and their guests mingled on the lawn as our fried green tomatoes with horseradish sauce + caramelized onions, miniature grilled cheese sandwiches on brioche, and cocktails were served. Then guests moved inside the dockside visitor center to find rows of farm tables, sprinkled with candles and pretty pastel flowers from Holly Bryan Design. Wendy + Chris kept their menu casual and fun, featuring some of their favorite finger foods, including out pistachio + coconut chicken satay with lime + cilantro coulis, Alison's famous meatloaf sliders on buttery brioche rolls, and wild mushroom + gruyere crostini with fresh thyme. Their buffet menu also included a beautiful antipasto display, cumin + sriracha spiced chick pea hummus, and basil laced roasted salmon with lemongrass creme fraiche.
For dessert, we provided Wendy + Chris with a dessert bar that will make your mouth water. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing, raspberry + lemon parfaits with oatmeal crumbles, and a fruit + cheese display featuring strawberries, dates, and artisan cheeses. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Chris has a blueberry pie "groom's cake" and a simple, but spectacular almond pound cake.
It's no surprise that we were crazy about another wedding at one of the many Piedmont Park venues, and we are pleased as punch to have been a part of Wendy + Chris's wedding celebration. Here's to the happy couple!
