Wedding Wednesday: The Wedding

Our bouquets were primarily white, with the most wonderful smelling freesias.

Because it was a beach wedding, the color scheme was steel blue and white, with starfish decorating all the stationery and tying everything together. The bridesmaids dresses were by Jenny Yoo. They were very well made, and flattering to all ten maids.

The starfish theme was continued with the seat assignments. Each starfish had a small card attached by a silver ribbon.

In keeping with the groom's love of UVA sports, the martinis were chilled in a Virginia sabre ice luge.

The place settings included a menu and a sand dollar cookie. The menu featured:
  • She Crab Soup En Croute
  • Romaine and Baby Spinach Salad with a choice of Balsamic Vinaigrette or Buttermilk Parmesan Dressing (I chose the Buttermilk Parmesan option, and it was so good.)
  • Hereford Filet Mignon and Mediterranean Wild Salmon, Miniature Idaho Potatoes, Vegetables (The Salmon had some sort of stuffing- I will let Farrell explain when she comes back- and it was excellent.)
  • Sorbet (with an edible flower!)
The tables alternated centerpieces. Some had flowers...

Others had candles:
The happy couple during their first dance. (They are fantastic dancers- I wish I could share a video because they have some serious moves.)

The cake!
It was a beautiful event- elegant, perfectly coordinated, and fun! - LG
