Jonah and Kate

This past weekend our friends from college, Jonah and Kate, were united in marriage in a beautiful ceremony. Their reception took place in a gorgeous screened in pavilion. The flowers, the table setting, the decorations, the food- it was all positively fabulous. Kate’s attention to detail resulted in a beautiful rustic and elegant party that is at the top of my list for the best wedding we have ever attended.

She, along with her bridesmaids and family, made these beautiful banners that labeled various parts of the reception…

She used the window of an old door as the seating chart…

The table settings and favors (herbs and honey) belonged in Martha Stewart magazine…

Another adorable feature is the pot of sparklers they had that we lit up at the end of the party to send the bride and groom away on their honeymoon…

Without a doubt, though, my favorite part of the reception was the dessert table. It was a glorious spread of cake and cupcakes and Kate and Jonah’s favorite treats. Kate asked me to make the chocolate orange cookies I made this past Christmas. I was thrilled to help!

Congratulations, Kate and Jonah! May you have love that never ends.
