CON­VER­SA­TION STARTER

Martha Stewart Weddings - - CELEBRATIONS -

“DIN­NER WAS FAM­ILY-STYLE. WE WANTED IT TO FEEL LIKE A MEAL AT HOME—COM­FORT­ABLE AND INVIT­ING, WHERE GUESTS PASSED PLATES TO ONE AN­OTHER.” —Olu

An aisle of red rose petals led to the cer­e­mony marker: a 300-year-old oak tree that was “a sym­bol of strength,” says Hana.

At the vine­yard re­cep­tion, the cou­ple shared their first dance to “Latch,” by Dis­clo­sure fea­tur­ing Sam Smith, while friends and fam­ily mem­bers looked on.

The let­ter­pressed suite had a cus­tom mono­gram that was also used for wax seals.

Huge red pe­onies dom­i­nated the ar­range­ments on long ta­bles, and each place set­ting fea­tured porce­lain dishes, sourced by Hana, that con­tained mar­i­nated lo­cal olives.

Ar­range­ments in a mix of wooden and brass ves­sels held col­or­ful farm­ers’ mar­ket pro­duce, along with blooms like pe­onies, bur­gundy vi­o­lets, and cot­i­nus.

Fa­vors in­cluded bot­tles of lo­cal olive oil, wrapped with the cou­ple’s seal.
