The Wedding

Terrain at Styers is a garden that foodie dreams are made of and quite possibly the coolest spot on the planet for a wedding extravaganza. And as if the venue weren’t enough to send us reeling into a swoon-fest, this pretty number is also sporting gobs of whimsical details and a lovely homespun quality crafted. We will spare you from all of our gushing and instead, let the beautiful images do the talking. Believe us, they have a beautiful story to tell. See it all here!

From the Bride…Instead of making ourselves crazy over every detail, we chose vendors and venues consciously that expressed our shared wedding vision. So, before we were even engaged, we booked place because it celebrates the beauty of nature, providing the perfect backdrop for our relaxed and romantic ceremony and reception.

At 6PM, guests with champagne in hand gathered at an Indian temple in the main of Terrain’s lush grounds to bear witness to our marriage. My father officiated and his deeply personal and humorous delivery struck a perfect balance, setting the tone for the rest of the evening’s events. Following the ceremony, the cocktail hour featured seasonal hors d’oeuvres and our selection of wines and beers (TIP: if your venue allows you to BYOB, do it!). Who doesn’t love a Hoegaarden with curry quinoa cakes in the evening? As if that wasn’t enough, our friend Haley Harmon of Don’t Eat the Paintings created a beautiful watercolor painting of our signature cocktail called “Pucker Up” featuring lemonade, pomegranate, and lavender-infused vodka made by my sister, Hannah.

Another reason we booked Terrain (maybe the main reason) is the food. The philosophy of Terrain’s café and Executive Chef Keith Rudolph is to create menus featuring seasonal ingredients from local farmers. To keep it casual, we choosed for a buffet-style dinner, served in the greenhouse-inspired café. Dining under hanging flowers, vines and twinkling garden lights was as delicious as it was romantic. After dinner, the party moved outside to the café terrace for dessert and dancing under the stars. In 2010, I started a baking company, coco love homemade, so we created a delectable dessert buffet featuring coco love whoopies, cookies, and button pies. Friends also pitched in and baked their favorites to help round out the selection (it was my wedding day after all!). Before we met, Jonathan and I both collected vintage cake stands and plates. We used our best cake stands and created some new of our own to display all the treats. Jonathan curated the festive installation inside Terrain’s ‘mushroom hut’ using this collection. We couldn’t imagine to have an outdoor space like the café terrace without allowing guests to make s’mores over a glowing fire pit, under a starry sky.
