Alissa and Michael met through work during the summer of 2002. He asked for her number, and eight years later they married.
Alissa wears a billowing Monique Lhuillier gown, Badgley Mischka shoes, and a veil from Kleinfeld Bridal. She accessorizes with a diamond cross pendant from Tiffany & Co. -- a gift from the groom on their wedding day -- and earrings from Anthropologie. Michael dons a three-piece suit and skinny tie from J.Crew.
The menus were designed by the bride's graphic designer brother-in-law. Prepared by Jamesport Manor Inn, the seated dinner highlights the region's produce and begins with a salad of 'Lolla Rossa' lettuce, Belgian endive, poached pear, Cabrales cheese, and toasted Marcona almonds, with a fig balsamic vinaigrette.
Under a Sperry Tents tent, long tables set with linen are decorated with potted herbs and plants, and garden roses. Table numbers are displayed in the bases of Anthropologie candle holders. The vineyard's wine is also included in the centerpieces. Each couple is able to bring home a bottle as a favor.
