From Aly Ann Events: Our whimsical tablescape for the styled shoot was inspired by bright summer colors and subtle details. We combined different textures, using the tulips, stationary suite, cocktails, and desserts to create a beautiful setting for a garden reception.

hexagon wedding arch

From Aly Ann Events: In addition, our modern ceremony site was decorated with a geometric arch. We absolutely loved draping this hexagon piece in greenery and allowing it to be the focal point of the space. The variety in seating provided a rustic visual and kind invitation for guests. Finally, we ended the evening with a few gorgeous cocktails that were nearly too pretty to drink.

Gin Lemonade

Lemon slice | Rosemary | Fresh lemon juice | Rosemary syrup | Sugar | Club soda | Gin | Water

Okay gin may not be for everybody, I have been one to balk at its angry Christmas tree flavor; but something magical happens when you add lemon juice a dash of Rosemary and a liberal amount of sugar to it! Not to mention how classy you'll feel sipping on a a gin lemonade at your garden party! Find the full recipe here

Ahhhh the mojito! If you are anything like us this mint based drink in all its fruity concoctions will always hold a special sip-sip-hooray spot in our hearts.
