Brittany and Derek planned a garden soiree filled with luxe detailing like satin linens, custom tent draping, designer papergoods, silver padded chiavari chairs, and so much more for their June 12th nuptials at The Buhl Mansion. The celebration commenced with a marriage ceremony in the gardens resplendent with florals.
Guests then enjoyed appetizers and champagne on the lawn of the gardens. Fresh fruit was displayed in the garden as JPC event staff butlered vegetable crudite tartletts, crabcake cosmos, and proscuitto wrapped melon skewers.
Upon entering the tent for dinner service, guests found beautiful pink l’amour satin table linens with nottingham overlays, silver charger plates with custom printed round table menus, and satin napkins enclosed in velum rings bearing each guests name for the seating card.
The seated dinner service commenced with a specialty “Sunset Salad” comprised of mixed mesculan greens, strawberry, mango, almond slivers, cranberries, onion and feta crumbles with a shot glass of swirled raspberry vinaigrette and champagne vinaigrette. Palette cleansing sorbet was served between the salad and dinner courses.
An elegant wedding cake with swagging, gumpaste florals and a crystal studded monogram topper was created by Jody for the couple. A decadent cookie assortment was also baked and displayed by JPC featuring french macaroons, baklava, cheesecake pops and many other house specialties.
Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and an amazing fireworks display capped off the celebration.
Best wishes from the JPC Event Group to newlyweds Brittany and Derek!
