Today, we have a totally different kind of wedding to show you! This beautiful backyard wedding was a first for Culinary Crafts - which after decades in the industry is saying something! The blushing bride, Maria, had spent several years of her young life living in Europe with her family and she really wanted her wedding to be an experience for every guest that harkened back to that setting. Her wish was that we would create a feeling of the European lifestyle so it was like their family and friends had taken a trip there with the happy couple - and we were totally excited to help her with that! It was decided that the backyard would be transformed into a series of European street market stands with an authentic fresh fruit and vegetable stand, a deli market sandwich stand, an apple beer and brat stand, a pomme frites stand, flaming crepe Suzette action stand, Italian gelato cart, and French macaron favors! So amazing! Take a look!
The casual and low-key feeling of strolling the markets were definitely carried throughout the event, especially with the blue gingham table linens and fresh flowers that you definitely would see being sold admist the food vendors in Europe. We loved the laid back and easy beauty of this wedding!
The happy couple chose to create really handmade, whimsical signage that had a truly European flair. We also loved the bride's simple floral headdress. So delicate and pretty!
To further create the sense of the streets of Europe, these street signs were created directing guest to the food "vendors"! SO cute. We also collected fruit and vegetable boxes to display the crudite and fruits so it looked like a true fruit and vegetable stand!
The deli market stand served freshly made sandwiches that our staff prepared in front of the guests. My favorite? The Italian Sausage and Salami baguette with fresh basil and tomato. YUM!!!
Isn't this signage fun? We loved the grab and go pomme frites stand too.
The German Brat stand served up Apple Beer and Brats plus any topping you could dream of. Definitely a crowd favorite!
Their cake was simply adorned with fresh berries and we LOVED the impact it made. The ripened berries looked stunning against the white buttercream. Simple and GORGEOUS. And it that wasn't enough, the guests also had Italian Gelato, Flaming crepe Suzette, and French Macarons to sait their sweet tooth!
This wedding was truly one-of-a-kind! We were so happy to have been able to create this experience for such a lovely couple and charming family! Remember, creating an event that is truly about you and your husband to be is always the best way to have a memorable event. Whether you focus on a life-changing experience, a shared passion, or just fill it with the people and things that you love, you'll always have an AMAZING wedding day because it shows the love between you and your beloved. Happy planning everyone!
