An Orchard Wedding

Two weekends ago, my cousin Jenna married Mr. Chris Goodman. It was a gorgeous wedding out in the Apple Orchards of Hurd Orchards in Upstate NY. Here is the happy married couple with their beautiful daughter Nico!

The ceremony was held outside (in 96 degree weather!) but we made the best of it using paper fans and staying well hydrated!

After the ceremony, we had a cocktail hour with drinks and yummy farm fresh appetizers. I think fruit should always be an appetizer. Especially when it is presented like this.

Or this…

The reception and dinner took place in this rustic barn.

If the appetizers were any indication of how dinner would be, I was super excited to see what other farm fresh food was in store for dinner.

A green salad with fresh blueberries and cucumber to start.

Fresh baked bread, muffins, and strawberry jam

Cheddar & herb quiche with rice pilaf and grilled zucchini

Pound cake with fresh raspberries and cream

It was a beautiful day for a wedding and I am so happy for Jenna and Chris. I wish them all the joy and love this world has to give.

Peace, love, and food,
