New Year’s Day, 2010, Katherine Fertakis and Jeffry Perkins were joined in matrimony. What a way to ring in the New Year! Their reception was held at the stunning Lake Mary Events Center.
The couple wanted a simple wedding with one request—to be as green as possible. This was something personal for the couple, not something they wanted to over emphasize to their guests. The menu we created was filled with organic ingredients and locally grown produce, including:
- Waterkist Farms Tomato and Mozzarella Bruschetta
- Matt’s Organic Satsuma Salad with locally grown Arugula, Satsuma oranges, sliced red onion, sliced almonds, shaved Parmesan in citrus vinaigrette
- Chicken Piccatta with a garlic, lemon caper sauce
To pay homage to their Greek and Filipino backgrounds, Lumpia Shanghai (a Filipino egg roll) was butler passed, and miniature baklava accompanied the dessert station.
Their color palate was very soft and earthy, showcased in their 4-tier wedding cake (made by Jennyfer Mancino from The Sugar Suite), escort cards and room décor. Another small symbol of their passion for green was seen in their favors. I personally LOVED this idea and solved that always difficult decision of whether or not to include favors…a reusable grocery bag (compact to boot)!
