As a member of the bridal party I was unable to get all the photos that I wanted for my blog. These are from the photographer Jesse Boone from Finest Moments Photography. The Above photo was taken on the East 9th Pier looking over Lake Erie. Below, the cameo on the bride’s bouquet was from her grandmother, a fantastic was to incorporate something old or borrowed. Enjoy these photos of the most beautiful fall wedding.

Ice Melts. Whiskey Rocks.
A good scotch needs no diluting. These Whiskey Stones require just a few hours in the freezer and they are ready for chilling your favorite beverage. For centuries granite has been used in Scandinavia for such purposes. However, these are made with natural Vermont soapstone, a very soft material so as not to scratch the glass. Best of all they are completely reusable. Just rinse and return back to the freezer before your next soiree. A set of nine retails for around $20.

Here is an except from the 1958 edition of Good Housekeeping’s Book of Breads & Sandwiches. Not only does it serve as some good party or picnic inspiration, it is an adorable illustration.
Make a seasonal center piece with fruit, greenery and flowers from your yard. (or your neighbor’s.) Simply place your findings in a bowl of water and arrange the way you like. When styling the center piece remember to group things in threes or odd numbers. Symmetry is not always pleasing to eye! Floral foam & picks are ideal but not necessary, as the life expectancy of your clippings may be short.
This is my favorite summer dish and like most of my recipes, its conception stems from what’s on hand. This is something you can make very quickly so keep this recipe in mind when you get that last minute invite. It makes a great side to grilled veggies and burgers. It is also satisfying enough to be a main dish. The leftovers pack up well for a lunch for the next day.
1 cup of prepared whole wheat couscous (I prefer Trader Joe’s Brand)
the juice of 2 lemons
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2 of an english cucumber
1/2 cup of chopped fresh parsley
1/8 cup of chopped fresh dill
1 Tbs. dried dill
1 Tbs. sea salt
Chop all veggies into nickel sized pieces. Add the lemon juice directly to the couscous as it fluffs. When it is cool to the touch and fluffy combine it with the veggies and chopped herbs. Mix well and add dried dill, salt and pepper to taste. refrigerate for 30 min. Serves 4 as a main dish & 6 as a side.
