A Garden Chic Sayen House Wedding
This Sunday wedding at Sayen House and Gardens was charming from start to finish! The blue skies and gorgeous landscape of Sayen Gardens were a perfect backdrop for our B+G's ceremony, and cocktail hour on the lawn was festive and quaint. Guests enjoyed Gazpacho and Crab Claw Shooters, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tartlets, Fig Marscapone with Candied Bacon atop Tuscan Toasts, and Skewered Blue Cheese Stuffed Mission Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto, while sipping on Belini, Freshly Brewed Iced Tea and Lemonade, Izzy Sodas, and full bar cocktails. Upon finding their escort cards clothes-pinned to an antique window strung with twine, guests took seats at their tables, which were overlayed with Jute fabric (which is a burlap like material that is soft and does not shed). They dined on a buffet including rack of lamb, a summer seafood grill (of scallops, shrimp and mahi mahi), cous cous, grilled vegetables drizzled with basil pesto, and panzanella salad. Dessert was a perfect pairing of wedding cupcakes and seasonal pies.
Our bride's choice of details for her wedding, including fresh seasonal ingredients and classic summer fare, along with perfectly adorable blue glass mason jar centerpieces, farm flowers (Dahlia Floral Concepts) and jam jar favors covered with brown butcher paper came together beautifully! The inherent charm of Sayen House, which has classic craftsman style woodworking and pretty rooms overlooking an exquisite garden, set the stage perfectly for her whimsical touches.
