{Weddings} I Have a Thing for Green Apples

I didn't have a theme at my wedding, but green apples definitely made an appearance during the day more than once. My bridesmaids dresses were chocolate brown with a light limey green sash, and I took this accent color and ran with it. That's where the idea of incorporating green apples came from....

Doesn't this look yummy? It was the green apple sorbet {intermezzo} served at our wedding. Our venue, Cescaphe Ballroom, was willing to make almost any kind of intermezzo our hearts desired. They were so great to work with....they even made us pats of butter in the shape of apples...haha.

We also had a martini menu featuring some different martini recipes. One was our signature cocktail, which we had made into a recipe card and that served as our wedding favor to our guests. Our signature cocktail was a Bubbly "Apple"tini (had a touch of champagne and was granished with a rock candy swizzle stick).

Lastly, we used green apples in our centerpieces. Lime slices would have been really fun too! At the time, it was a trendy, new concept to use fruit or another fun food {limes, lemons, grapes, coffee beans, etc} in your centerpiece. I loved them!
