Suzanne and Adam wanted to have tailored arrangements, so the centerpieces on the dining tables are a mix of high and low pieces. Bells of Ireland, native dogwood branches, and tulips formed the taller pieces, anchored by a trio of simple flower groupings set atop brown tablecloths. Atop each place setting rests a single cut tulip.
Instead of one large wedding cake, Maria and Robert offer a number of choices for their guests. The main cake is a square layered tiramisu decorated with Lady apples dipped in either caramel or chocolate. Other baked delights include (from left) a chocolate sour-cream pound cake with raspberry filling and chocolate ganache frosting, miniature cupcakes with apricot filling and topping, and a round layered spice cake with cream-cheese frosting. Hand-painted, calligraphed signs list the names of the desserts.
