Katherine has managed and organized all kinds of events and spent a lot of time directing theatre productions (we actually did a pretty impressive child's theatre camp together with a production of The Jungle Book at the end of the week. She is an amazing director!) So she put together a reception was both well thought out and planned. They thought of everything! My favorite, of course, was the variety of food. Not only was there a dinner, but also a whole table of treats.
I love this! Instead of a wedding cake, they had a wedding pie. And why not? You can cut a pie just as easy as a cake.
...and extra little pies for the guests.
Amaaazing cookies from Tiff's Treats (where Katherine used to work).
A fruit bouquet.
And they had the incredible flowers done by Sherri Toler (Chelsea's mom - remember Chelsea and Dan and all their amazing flowers?)
It was also neat that they had so much history together (growing up together, dating as young teenagers) and they brought this into the reception. There was a whole timeline of events and gifts given throughout the years.
And a life size chess set. (I was hoping they'd let me take this one home... but I probably couldn't have gotten it on the plane anyway ;D)
And then the venue. Vineyards at Chappell Lodge is just dynamite as a reception location. So much character and beauty. It looks good during the day, but my favorite (as usual) was when the sun started to set. This patio was gorgeous in the blue hour!
It was an amazing party.
