All senses were engaged at this beautiful wedding reception. The scent of the fresh sea breeze. Bold pops of tangerine flowers against the colbalt blue and white striped table runners. Scrumptious food prepared by yours truly. Crashing waves in the background and laughter all around. Every detail came together swimmingly and we love the idea of Maggie & Andrew sitting by the sea, K.I.S.S.I.N.G.
The menu included a bit of surf and a bit of turf…
