Elegance summed up Rosemarie and Charles reception on Saturday, November 5, 2011. A wet, crisp fall day gave way to a beautiful reception with a beaming couple.
Mr. and Mrs. Wells had floor length ivory linens, ivory napkins, ivory chair covers with champagne organza sashes, and embroidered overlays with satin detail provided by Unique Weddings and Flowers. Magnolia’s Flowers complimented the color scheme wonderfully. The flowers provided the perfect amount of color and complimented the warm colors of fall. Flowers included gorgeous roses in a warm copper tone and lush peach. Also included in the arrangements were white Lillies, white Hydrangeas, babies breath, and green foliage. The vases showcased the intertwined branches and twigs of the centerpiece and really gave it that fall feel.
Guests dined on a lavish feast that began with cocktail hour which featured: cheese and cracker, chilled jumbo shrimp, Raspberry Almond Brie, fresh fruit, and sliced salmon on a cucumber round.
Dinner included 3 salad options: baby greens with feta cheese, candied walnuts, bell tomatoes, and cranberry vinaigrette dressing, a Caesar Salad, and pasta salad with baby shrimp. Entrees included a chef carved station that featured Filet Mignon and Roasted Pork Tenderloin. Accompaniments included wild rice pilaf, seasonal fresh vegetables, sourdough rolls, and a mashed potato bar. The potato bar was the high lite of the dinner for the guests. Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Yukon Gold Potatoes were served in martini glasses with assorted toppings that included bacon bits, cheese, chives, and sour cream.
Michelle’s Bakery provided the three-tiered cake. Flavors included German Chocolate, Lemon with fresh Raspberries, and Raspberry Victorian. Two kayaks were placed on the top of the cake to incorporate the couple’s love of kayaking and outdoor sports.
DJ Benji, of VIP Events, did a wonderful job hosting the evening and kept the party rolling.
Everything came together for the evening’s reception and it looked absolutely beautiful. Congratulations Rosemarie and Charles!
