Romantic Wedding in the Woods








   Maddy and Will's Wedding at her father Keith's property was one of the most romantic and heart felt weddings I have ever had the privilege of catering. My husband and I have been friends with him since they attended the Wooden Boat School in Port Townsend in the early 80's. Keith is one of the last full time fisherman in the San Juan's harvesting Dungeness Crab and Spot Prawns. Her mother, a seafood broker, helped supply the freshest seafood for the event and made all the desserts.  It doesn't get better then that. Keith also a talented wood worker broke into his stash of seasoned lumber to build all the rustic farm tables. Maddy collected brass candles holders of all sizes and allowed the wax to drip down onto the tables.  Decommissioned vessels dot the yard making for a charming back drop.
