The Gallery Director's Wedding II

After cocktail hour it was time to head into the glorious dining room for dinner.


 Each course was on a playful plate...

 and the food was delectable.

 Mr. & Mrs!

 JCW couldn't wait for dessert.

First Dance

The Bride has a shoe obsession and she wore the Kate Spade Charm shoe in platinum for her big day.

The wedding cake assembly was inspired by a painting called "Cakes" but the Bride and Groom added an element of there own. The cake that they cut was covered in a lace pattern that was created from the lace of the Groom's Grandmother's wedding dress.

The Bride and I both share a love of blue & white and I don't think she could have chosen cooler cake plates.  

JCW & Mr. Pork
Mr. Pork once gave JCW fresh bacon as a parting favor after a dinner party...it went down in JCW's book as the best dinner party ever!

I am not naming any names but some guests were trying to sample every single type of cake.

 The talented gallery director & EAS

The Bride gave her Bridesmaids gold Rachel Leigh Bow Bracelets along with vintage earrings. Each pair of earrings were different and fit each Bridesmaid's personality and individual sense of style. 

It was a fabulous night and I thoroughly enjoyed the Pimms Cups!

The favor was a box that read "Orange you glad you came" filled with a Orange Pecan Cake.

Special thanks to the bride and groom for including us in their big day…your creativity and love of food continues to inspire us! xx

I believe I "wow'd" yesteday, so today I will double wow! I think my absolute favorite thing (and there are so many favorites) is their "cake". Thanks for posting the painting, I was about to google it :) How clever!

I can't say enough how much I love every time you post about this wedding! It was simply beautiful! I love the nautical ribbon in the first picture. I ordered some for my bouquet just like it! Also the bride and I seem to have the same shoe obsession as I will be wearing those shoes but in navy! And I love your dress! I just got it a little while ago!

xoxo.
