The leaves are turning, and are adding the absolute perfect splash of color to our fall weddings. Our weekends have been busy in October with gorgeous weddings and events like this past Saturday’s Shade Trees and Evergreens wedding. Ashley and Steve were such a pleasure to work with, and we were so happy the rain cleared just in time for their Shade Trees and Evergreens wedding. Ashley and Steve’s wedding ceremony was breathtaking, as the ceremony took place lake side surrounded by a picturesque landscape. Shade Trees and Evergreens is surrounded by trees and sits in a valley, which offers a serene and intimate setting for a wedding.

After the ceremony, guests headed to the beautiful wedding tent for cocktails and appetizers. The color scheme for this wedding was so tasteful with navy linens and coral accents. The flowers and centerpieces complimented with these colors, as well. Ashley and Steve embraced the fall weather and had hot chocolate and apple cider for their guests to enjoy. Not only that, but the wedding place cards were Apple Pie flavored cupcakes with each guest’s name and table information placed on the cupcake. A Shade Trees and Evergreens wedding that begins with dessert is hard to beat.

Guests got to enjoy appetizers such as our shrimp tostado with our mango salsa, orange chicken skewer, scallops wrapped in bacon, sirloin wrapped asparagus, and root beer barbecue pork slider. For the main course we served three stations that fit with the cool, crisp autumn evening. One station was our Pasta Bar which featured tortellini and penne pasta, with the option of our vodka rose sauce, or our bolognese sauce.  Guests also enjoyed our carving station which featured chef carved turkey and marinated flank steak. Our personal favorite was the grilled cheese stations with pear and brie grilled cheese; and tomato, mozzarella and basil grilled cheese with a tomato soup shooter.  The rest of the evening, Ashley and Steve spent dancing with their family and friends. Congratulations to the lovely couple. Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
