Newfields Wedding : Taryn & Jon

Every detail of Taryn and Jon’s wedding reception at Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion at Newfields was perfect. The entire space transformed into a whimsical garden, with so many décor details it felt quite like a fairy tale. Even the escort board was well coordinated. A large boxwood guest board held romantically calligraphied escort cards – in a light purple ink no less. It was instantly dreamy. In fact, that may be the best word to describe the beautiful design and colors of this wedding reception. From the dresses, to the floral, to the signage at the food stations, everything felt ethereal.



Of course details and decor are only part of the recipe for an amazing event. Naturally, our favorite aspect is the food. With great balance and variety, Taryn and Jon selected a menu that had something for everyone. Cocktail hour was hosted in Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion Foyer and included both passed and displayed hors d’oeuvres. The couple took advantage of their ability to customize their Special Occasion Package to offer exactly what they envisioned. We especially love their choice to offer a plated salad course before guests were invited to entree stations. In fact, this is the same reception setup we use during our group menu tasting, giving guests the ability to personalize their dining experience.
