Adorable Country Garden Wedding

I don’t think we could adore last week’s wedding anymore than we already do. It was so lovely!
The cheerful yellow theme, the adorable rustic chairs, the amazing flowers, we could go on and on.
For Allegra & Todd’s guests, it felt like an intimate dinner gathering in an English garden but with some American flare. The couple was set on serving a delectable Southern Comfort-inspired family-style meal… Twelve-hour braised beef brisket, citrus-marinated grilled chicken, best-ever mac & cheese, roasted sweet potato mash, farmers market grilled vegetables, warm homemade corn bread with honey butter & jalapeño jam, yum…

Family & friends went home that evening with our a glass jar of our chef’s very own brisket spice rub.

After the backyard ceremony, guests started with our bruschetta bar: three seasonal bruschettas served with toasted sliced baguettes, grilled crostinis & fresh vegetables. Guests also enjoyed  heirloom tomato gazpacho shooters with grilled cheese bites and bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese.

Here’s the menu:
