Although there were countless wedding details to decide between and waver over, two reception concepts were signed and sealed immediately: Alex's bourbon tasting bar and our raw oyster bar.
Through all of my family 's simchas (celebrations) in Memphis over the last 25 years, out-of-town guests account for a majority of the guest list. This wedding was no exception, as Alex's and my families were 100% from out of town, resulting in 200 relatives and friends from other cities! Of course, we rose up to the challenge to welcome their stays in style, but I desired to elevate the "tastes" of Memphis from potentially expected, traditional airport gift shop finds to local craft confections and treats.
My new parents hosted the most incredible opener to our wedding weekend! We couldn't be more grateful for the final product, with details made possible by so many Memphis vendors and creatives. Scroll and see a glimpse of an emotionally-charging celebration (if only we could re-capture the wedding toasts!).
