Is there a wedding season? I actually have no idea. I can't believe it would be August though. In the mid-west it has been grueling, with temperatures well above 100% with heat index's of 116%. I guess if I could be assured of a controlled COOL environment...Who knows.
I have been thinking about weddings for a few days. Friday evening I unsealed myself from my hermetically sealed COOL environment to go see a couple of friends who had set up their wedding wares in a local Salon for 1st Friday, a free art stroll in the Crossroads District, where there is a concentration of art galleries. The event was "Something Borrowed Something Blue" at BeSpoke Salon and was styled artfully by Linh Trieu

Jeanne Rohner greeted us at the door, in her fantastic vintage gown, Va va va voom! The "brides" were having their hair done, there were several artist/vendors showing off their talents, and then
there was the baker! No matter what time of year a wedding is, I realized that for me it is all
about the food. This is the part I still remember after a short marriage a long time ago! Hmmm!

So to finish it off the dress's for the bride and her bridesmaids. Vera Wang gets my pick for gowns.

So I hear that the cakes and cookies taste as good as they looked. I bought a piece in Chaing Mai, Thailand by a well known pewter artist that would showcase one of these cakes brilliantly.
Maybe I will get to use it for one of Rachel's cakes.
