Kate and Sean have known each other since first grade. They've been together for about that long, too (give or take a decade or so). This nature/bird-themed wedding was beautiful. I loved Kate's details –red patent leather flats, borrowed earrings, a Phillies garter (game 6 of the NLCS was that night). The wedding was held at the historic John James Audubon Center, home to the renowned artist and naturalist, something that inspired many of the details that day. The Jewish ceremony began at sunset and guests were offered hot apple cider and fleece wraps to help stay warm. The cocktail hour was held in the barn. There were cheeses, grilled vegetables, a blini station, and butlered hors d'oeuvres (micro cheeseburgers, lamb kabobs, latkes, sashimi tuna cones…) and a great assortment of beer. Escort cards were created on a rustic setup with clothespins, string, lace, lattice and featured the bird theme. Bird figurines were seen all over the place that day. We were treated to a guest appearance by a live owl. The reception was in the tented pavilion with exposed wooden beams. They danced their first dance to Sarah McLachlan's "Ice Cream". These foodies couldn't have gone without delicious reception food too: branzino or filet and some spectacular dessert goodies: cake, chocolate truffles, cheesecake lollipops, caramel apples, and s'mores created in the fireplace. And Kate and Sean – so relaxed, so happy, so in love.
