From Jessamyn...

Jacqueline and Gregory hired a Chez Panisse chef to make the food, and enlisted their favorite bakery to make 3 (!) amazing cakes decorated with fresh fruit, as well as a collection of petit fours. Amazing!

The only problem was that the whole day was planned to be outside - from ceremony, mingling, portraits, dinner and onward - and it was unseasonably freezing and rainy on their wedding day, so there was a bit of extra stress and worry as they tried to manage all of the details as well as make adjustments for moving the dinner inside the small house. They were amazingly calm and collected as they decided to have the ceremony outside (where there were just a few small sprinkles) so that they could enjoy the dramatic view, and the dinner inside, with long family-style tables, a crackling fire, and the kitchen just feet away.

This gave the whole reception (though a little cramped) a really wonderful entertaining-at-home feeling!
