Happy one month anniversary to Rachel and Ian Bonnet! The couple celebrated their marriage on May 14th, 2011 at Nino’s. The bride’s bouquet and centerpieces featured ferns, lilies of the valley, freesia, and yellow irises. Vintage china, furniture, and decorative wares were generously provided by Maggpie Vintage Rentals. Hand blown glass pickle dishes by Beyvan Schantz were placed on each table and filled with i.think.i.can’s pickled squash, red onion, and asparagus.
Hors d’oeuvres included peppered salmon, fresh spring rolls, and stuffed clams. For dinner, roast chicken and pork loin from Town’s Edge Farm in Ligonier. The former was served with local asparagus and new potatoes, the latter with rhubarb-cherry chutney and wild rice. A salad of arugula and strawberries, fresh artichokes, and pasta with lemon zest and porcini mushrooms rounded out the spring menu.
In lieu of a wedding cake, the bride and groom asked their guests to bake a favorite pie for the occasion. Of course, we snuck in a birthday cake for the groom, who turned 30 on his wedding day. Congratulations again to the happy couple! It was an honor to host their wedding.
