Candles illuminated the dining table, highlighting the natural textures and colors that complimented the surroundings to a tee.
Instead of creating one main centerpiece, Erin covered the center of the tables in flowers and candles, topped off with a long, lush florals including sunflowers, garden roses and hydrangeas that pulled in yellows, burgundies, greens, and reds.
An antique window pane was used to showcase an amazing meal that included ciopinno-crab arancini, mussels, shrimp with tomato bouillabaisse and eggplant roulade with ricotta, roasted tomato, and balsamic aioli hor dourves. The first course consisted of a mouth-watering turkey fig salad with herbed chevre, crispy proscuitto, petite greens, balsamic, and maple-dijon vinaigrette and the main entree, pan seared airline chicken breast over white bean ragout and wilted tuscan kale with fresh herb salad and extra virgin olive oil.
After dinner, guests enjoyed an amazing cake displayed on a fire engine red table table and delicious macaroon favors, leaving all with sweet memories of the happy couple and an unforgettable evening.
