Small Life, Slow Life: Wedding Photos — The Reception!

I think I promised these photos sooner but life keeps getting in the way!

Our reception was at Pedaler’s Fork, which isn’t just a hip cyclists’ restaurant (it’s actually REALLY hip), but it’s also our favorite restaurant. When we talked to owner Gideon and told him our vision of a sunrise wedding followed by the best breakfast ever (with tons of coffee of course), he was so stoked!

Over the months that followed we created a custom menu together and figured out how we’d pack 90 people onto their patio. It all worked (thanks so much in part to restaurant manager Sabrina who is such a life-saver) and we had such a blast!

My beautiful bridesmaid Marianne Wolfe made the cake — flourless chocolate with cream cheese frosting (my FAVORITE). After the wedding, we went home and Cyrus fed me giant bites of this cake while we opened presents.

Favor #2 was, what else…COFFEE! Pedaler’s Fork has the best coffee by far and we were so excited to give it to our guests.

Crying because of Darcy’s sweet speech!

Laughing at Nick’s speech (in just moments, the whole patio would be crying from it)!

"Being your dad has been the best experience of my life." I totally cried. Thanks, Dad. <3

Our basic goal was to have a never-ending stream of coffee pouring at all times.

Menu. I made it in Photoshop and my friend Emily printed them all for me.

We had granola and yogurt for the non-carnivores.

“Johnny Cakes” are small gluten-free pancakes that are to die for.

This was favor #1 — traditional Persian cookies inside a custom muslin bag (thanks, etsy)!

Mr. and Mrs. Moghadassi! I moved St. Germain to my middle name — I’m too attached to it to give it up completely!

And here’s hoping for a lifetime of fun together. 🙂
