Today marked the end of our fall wedding season at Saipua. The (now) newlyweds lucked out with the perfect fall weather, and one of the best venues for a small wedding in Brooklyn - Frankies 457, the one consistently delicious Italian restaurant on Court Street.
The groom requested St. Peters Porter bottles for the table arrangements - last night a few of us worked at emptying 10 bottles of it over several rounds of rummy. (I will admit I lost. Six months ago my card karma went out the window along with my knickname triple ace.)
Here are some photos from today. We mainly used dinner-plate dahlias because they are still stunning (and will be till there is a frost in the North East). Also black queen annes lace - one of my favorite flowers - seeded eucalyptus, and nigella pods. We also found some french anemones (a rarity this early in the fall).
Tomorrow I will do a season wrap up with more details of the late summer/fall events. I'm beat now, and its 7:12 so I'm locking up. Good nite.
