for the flowers, i wanted to communicate sweetness and seasonality with lots of color -- peonies, mountain laurel, scabiosa, pittosporum, chamomile, jasmine, blueberry and garden roses made the cut.
but before we got to the park, we needed that marriage license shot.
i've long loved that golden facade. remember i love the gold...
onto the celebration at a favorite mexican restaurant...
but not before a quick ride on the prospect park carousel...
most brides like to change into a party frock for the reception and this one was no different...
i called on my friend kumiko, who happens to be a pastry chef to make the cake.
she created this delicious, refreshing icebox cake, iced with whipped cream and topped with fresh kumquats.
will share some behind the scenes shots later on this week. and please click here for the green wedding shoes post and comment away!
