Sutton & Price Wedding at Sonnet House

The Sutton – Price wedding at Sonnet House in Montgomery was an evening to remember! The couple’s outdoor bash utilized splashes of pinks, adding a fun, summer feel. The pink lighting hues really popped and made a chic contrast with the white seating tables and furniture as evening fell. A large ice sculpture with the couple’s hot pink, glowing monogram served as one of the focal points of the reception. The ice sculpture was surrounded by matching pink martini glasses for the special Strawberry-Infused Vodka Martinis. The traditional, Southern buffet had a unique Asian-inspired twist. In addition to the Mini Hamburgers, BLTs, Vegetable Crudite, Endive Petals, Catfish Cakes, White Cheddar Turkey Biscuits, Stuffed Mushrooms and a Cascading Fruit Display, the couple served Sushi Spoons and had a Thai Noodle Station. The Asian Sushi Spoons held a California Roll with Wasabi and Pickled Ginger. The Thai Noodle Station offered guests Pan Sauteed Vegetables and Rice noodles with Ginger Chicken, Snow Peas, Mung Bean Sprouts, Shiitake Mushrooms, Napa Cabbage, Cilantro, Garlic and Scallions. All of these fabulous ingredients were cooked with Sesame Seed Oil, Soy Sauce, Mirin, Rice Wine Vinegar and Oyster Sauce.

Casey and Simeon wed at the bride’s family home on picturesque Lake Martin. This elegant summer wedding was personal and intimate. Friends and family gathered by the water for a lake-view ceremony. After the “I do’s,” the couple was joined by guests on the patio of the family’s home for the reception. Under light draping, the tables were covered in blue and tan – complimenting the lake and outdoor space. Gold candelabras, greenery, lanterns and pastel flowers topped the tables. The lush  florals complemented the natural beauty of the outdoor space as well as brought in splashes of color. Black and white wedding photographs of the bride and groom’s loved ones hung on the wall near the main dinner table. The candles and strung lights twinkled as evening fell, creating a soft-hearted ambiance. Hors d’oeuvres of Roma Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella Caprese with Basil Pesto, Crispy Phyllo Tarts with Soy Ginger Thai Flank Steak, Wasabi Creme and Toasted Peanuts; Scallops Ceviche and Citrus Marinated Crab Claws were passed as guests arrived at the reception location. The beautifully dressed tables were pre-set with Watermelon-Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese, Shaved Red Onion, Fresh Mint & Honey Balsamic Dressing served over a bed of Baby Spinach. The dinner was a buffet filled with Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce, Chicken Kabob Skewers, BBQ Rubbed Sliced Pork Tenderloin, Rosemary Roasted New Potatoes, Shrimp and Grits, Sauteed Haricot Vert and Succotash.

Kirby and Ridge’s Garden Wedding

On a beautiful June Sunday, Kirby Cross and Ridge Willcutt exchanged vows at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The couple was surrounded by natural blooming buds and beautiful pastel arrangements by Fairview Florist. Under a flower covered archway, the couple said, “I do” and walked down a flower bouquet lined isle into a happy future. Immediately following the ceremony, the couple, along with guests, celebrated the marriage with a beautiful indoor / outdoor reception. The Garden’s Café by Kathy G was the perfect spot for the wedding reception. The café both kept guests out of the summer showers (a wedding day sign of good luck) while still providing a covered outdoor option to enjoy the Botanical Gardens! The happy pinks and lavenders in the arrangements and décor mirrored the happy couple’s blissful demeanor. The bride and groom chose a delightful luncheon menu, packed with tasty Kathy G & Company favorites! Chili Glazed Shrimp with Mango Salsa and Smoked Turkey on Orange Muffins with Orange Marmalade gave the menu an organic, summer feel. A selection of savory Mini Tarts were available with topping selections such as Roasted Tomato and Feta, Vidalia Onion and Gruyere, and Spinach and Parmesan. Beef Tenderloin on Assorted Cocktail Rolls with Horseradish Sauce and Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce were also on the menu for guests to enjoy. The seasonal fruit display cascaded with ripe Grapes, Pineapple, Honey Dew and assorted Berries of striking summer colors. Kirby and Ridge chose a fun drink selection that included a wide variety for guests to choose from.  The Spa Waters were infused with Lemon, Lime and Orange, and Cucumber and Mint flavors, adding a refreshing, summer twist! Mint Iced Tea, Shirley Temple’s and Kir Royale’s were also served. For the wedding cake, the bride had a cream dot cake adorned with elegant, edible roses. The groom put a spin on the traditional chocolate cake by choosing cupcakes that were marked with a “W” for the couple’s last name. Congratulations, Kirby and Ridge! We enjoyed celebrating your magical, summer celebration with you!       Ceremony: Birmingham Botanical Gardens Reception: Garden’s Café by Kathy G Catering: Kathy G & Company Florist: Fairview Florist Design: KG Designs Photographer: Janet Wilson Cakes: Edgar’s Harpist: Marsha Gunter Band: Shades Creek Chamber...

Melissa and Neil’s Wedding at the Garden’s Cafe by Kathy G

Melissa Hennessy and Neil Dougherty celebrated their wedding on Saturday with a reception at The Garden’s Café by Kathy G. The drum major groom and the head majorette bride at their alma matter Auburn University have been making memories as a couple for years, which was beautifully depicted at their June 29th reception. The couple looked to K.G. Designs and Kathy G. & Co. Catering for the event logistics. K.G. Designs created unique centerpieces that told stories about Melissa and Neil’s experiences as a couple. Each centerpiece, rare and picturesque in its own way, painted a portrait of their lives together and gave a glimpse into their happy future. Soft pink roses, baby’s breath and candlelight surrounded each representation of Melissa and Neil. One centerpiece represented the couple’s trip to Ireland where they collected souvenirs that were used in the centerpiece. The Irish fairy tale book, including the story of The Little Mermaid, and the seashells symbolize their expedition and the memories made there. To tie this fairy tale wedding together, Melissa and Neil chose a beautiful white cake adorned with light blue, candied roses by Dreamcakes. Atop was the silhouette of Cinderella and her Prince Charming. Kathy G. & Co., K.G. Designs and The Garden’s Café by Kathy G. wish Melissa and Neil a perfect happily ever after!
