wedding, part five: more receptionPosted: June 4, 2011
dinner, toasts, cupcakes, and sparklers:
the party continued with dinner in the tent, which was beautifully illuminated by tiny white lights around the perimeter and lanterns on the wooden tent posts (one of my favorite decorative details). some highlights from our menu included avocado gazpacho, grilled seasonal vegetables and tofu, whipped taro root cake with pineapple, and wild mushroom ravioli. there was also a “symphony of pastries” and a cupcake tower from The Bent Spoon, a local artisanal ice cream and bakery shop. for entertainment, we had an amazing guitarist – Jason Liebman – who played all throughout dinner and dessert, performing our favorite music, from Cat Stevens to Amos Lee, Bread to Van Morrison, Jack Johnson to Tracy Chapman and many others. it was mellow and just our style. he even learned an entire set of songs just for our wedding – definitely a highlight of our reception! those adorable kids making silly faces are my three youngest cousins; they are enjoying the outdoor lounge area created by our talented friends, John and David, the landscape designers and event planners behind Groundswell Design Group. to send us on our way, our guests made a pathway with sparklers as Jeff and I ran through and then drove off in my family’s SmartCar. thanks for letting us relive our wedding with you! we have one more final post later tonight to wrap up our (2nd) anniversary week!
