Meet Ashley and Owen, the totally awesome and completely hot, newly married, Mr. and Mrs. Peak.
So, while we were out shooting a series of night portraits in the rain - with horses none the less - their approximately 800 guests were indulging in some delicious wedding favors.
But what exactly do you do when you have a very large guest list and still want a very personal touch? Apparently you bake…a lot. Ashley’s grandmother set out a couple of days before the wedding to begin baking homemade chocolate chip cookies for every guest. Other family members pitched in to help, and they actually pulled it all off! The cookies were placed five to a box, and packaged in ribbon and stickers that tied in to the wedding colors. (For the record, that is THOUSANDS of cookies).
And they were EVERY bit just as delicious as they look. What is more personal than Grandma’s homemade cookies? I just love the southern hospitality of these favors, and the thoughtfulness and love behind them.
This is just a great concept! Maybe I’m really biased because I’m fascinated with cooking and baking, as I’m a little challenged in that department. Regardless, the cookies kicked some major rear…and I want one right now…
