A Wedding at Graeme Park: Maggie & Tom

Maggie and Tom had a traditional church wedding, then invited guests back to Graeme Park for cocktails, dinner and dancing in the Open Aire Affairs tent on the property. The party started with drinks and hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, catered by Blue Monkey Catering of Feasterville, in the tented barn yard.

The tent was set with brown and orange linens, with lace toppers on the tables. Centerpieces were roses, Gerber daisies, and other seasonal flowers in reds, oranges, and yellows set on unique wooden boards. Blue Monkey had incorporated various antique elements onto the buffet tables and bars, along with baskets, flowers, and seasonal pumpkins and gourds. 

The menu was a homey selection of braised short ribs, roasted turkey, mushroom risotto, green salad, haricots vert, and best of all a potato bar with mashed potatoes and pureed sweet potatoes served up in a martini glass with a selection of help-yourself toppings.

Somehow I managed to miss getting a picture of the cakes, which were baked by Zake's Cafe of Fort Washington. There was a delicious choice of lemon or mocha with tons of cream filling between the layers of cake. In keeping with the season, the figures on top were none other than Jack Skellington and Sally.

Congratulations Maggie and Tom and best wishes for the future. Thank you for celebrating at Graeme Park.
