Why I Like Making Wedding Desserts
I love working with brides, and I love making desserts for weddings. On the day of a wedding that I'm catering, I think about my own wedding which was nine years ago this past July. We had a rustic affair, the ceremony and reception at a local non-working farm, in a barn that was painstakingly cleaned and fixed up for the owner's daughter's wedding the year before ours. We had the ceremony at the top of a small hill. There were sweeping views of the Pownal valley and hay growing high around the mown path. We wrote our own vows (I guess a cliche these days!) and had both of our sets of parents speak about their long-running marriages. It was one of the most beautiful days of the summer, perfectly warm with low humidity and a cool evening. The barn looked magical with soft lighting and purple hydrangeas that my mom lovingly picked from her own garden and brought up with her. I remember how excited I was that day, how happy I was to have my family and very closest friends surrounding us with their love. It makes me feel honored to make desserts for someone else's special day because I know they will treasure the memories with the same dearness as I cherish my own.
