I've been teasing you about this for awhile, and I'm finally ready to deliver the goods. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

Some dear friends of mine eloped a few months ago. They're silly in love and adorable. They decided to have a party this summer for their family and friends to celebrate with them. What they managed to do was to throw not only the greatest wedding the world has ever known, but one of the greatest parties of all time.
There were pretzels and tomato pie. Homemade wine and kegs of great beer. Chickpea, Green bean and carrot salads in chinese take-out containers. Hand written signs labeled all the treats.
Decorations? Simply beautiful flowers in glass Ball jars and tea cups. Hand made bunting. It managed to be elegant, classy and casual all at once. The Bride and Groom looked lovely and dapper, respectively, without the traditional garb. I was fully impressed.
Dinner was served by Taco Truck. Honest Tom's Tacos. Chicken, or Grilled Sweet Potatoes. Crazy good Gucamole. And a drink they referred to as the "Arnoldo Palmer": Tamarindo juice mixed with lemonade. It was so refreshing my mind didn't quite know how to handle it.
And by now you should know about the desserts. Three different varieties of cupcakes, three different varieties of shortbread cookies, all VEGAN! We set up a dessert table that also included bowls of fruit candy and salt water taffy. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the desserts, and I was pleased with the way it all turned out.
The best part was the entertainment. Soulamite, a Philadelphia soul band that hasn't played together in a few years, got back together just for this party. They were still so tight, it's like they never stopped playing. And once they started playing, the party didn't stop dancing!

So for all you brides out there, take note. This wedding had everything a good party should: Great food, drinks and desserts, amazing music, beautiful decorations, and lots of love and good times had by all, without all that usual wedding stuffiness. Here's to a long and happy life together for Doc and Nicole!
