Vintage Place Setting
Vanessa Van Wieren of Alchemy Fine Events designed Lauren and Mike's intricate menu. It was laser-cut in two corners, letterpressed in the other corners, and bolted onto antiqued copper backings. The menu was especially important to Lauren because it incorporated her late grandmother’s famous fried green tomatoes. The tables were whimsically set with embossed antique chargers, scalloped earthenware plates and charcoal treble clef flatware. The copper-backed menus were set atop the plates. Ivory hemstitched napkins tied with silk champagne ribbons were placed alongside the chargers. An olive sprig was tucked beneath each ribbon.
