AWM: Stems & Styles

Darling and Dapper

A reflection on the opulence of the 1920’s in the historic warehouse district.


For the reception, the head table is set with a plethora of varied candlesticks and floral details. A candlelier from PropHouse overhead adds to the gorgeous glow of the table with amaranthus hanging from the structure for a touch of softness. For dinner, the chefs at B&A Warehouse have prepared a starter of corn and crawfish fritters with crème fraiche, a California caprese salad, bourbon-glazed salmon with asparagus on top of rice pilaf and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Meanwhile, the jazz trio, XXX, plays smoothly during dinner before hitting on all sixes with a lively tune. Presented on a bar cart with a bottle of champagne, the charming cake by Kim’s Cakes features ruffled and gilded layers with an oversize sugar peony. As guests head out the door to meet again at the local juice joint, a vintage typewriter is available to leave a note of well-wishes and advice for continuing a marriage that is the cat’s meow.
