Galvanized metal lanterns from Ikea, painted with orange numbers, anchored each table. Burlap runners were embellished with either an orange yarn crosshatch or an "A&M" monogram. Baby's tears (grown for six months by the bride), PeeGee hydrangea, figs, and dried agapanthus, alliums, and thistle made up the centerpieces. Wine bottles with muslin bags stamped with the wedding date kept the palette neutral.
The 130 guests dined at long tables during the evening reception. Feastivities Events created a seasonal dinner of a salad of mesclun greens dressed in raspberry vinaigrette, accompanied by a mini chicken pot pie and rosemary focaccia with olive oil, followed by a buffet of smoked brisket with spicy barbecue sauce and sweet-and-smoked sauce; cedar-plank salmon with juniper berry and shallot beurre blanc; butternut squash risotto; roasted root vegetables with balsamic syrup; and a saute of zucchini, carrots, and red pepper.
