Weekend Of Weddings: A Taste Of Jamaica

The day after Kevin and Amanda’s wedding was Carla and Richard’s wedding day. It was still a very hot day (as most days of the summer of 2010 were), but it seemed a bit more tolerable.

Richard is a Botanist. So when we were thinking of potential venues, the Howard County Conservancy came to mind. It has beautiful gardens and a modern venue called the Gudelsky Center. Carla and Richard thought it was perfect for what they had in mind.

The ceremony was unique and similar to Angie and Manny’s wedding where the honor attendants represented different elements and cardinal directions of our planet. North Earth, West Water, South Air and East Fire.

Carla’s family hails from Jamaica and she really wanted to honor her culture by treating guests to her childhood cuisine. Chef Dan from the Elkridge Furnace Inn did a wonderful job with Carla’s Oxtail Stew with Pigeon Peas and Rice recipe.

 After the meal, dancing began! Guests enjoyed a variety of music from Latin Salsa and Caribbean Reggae to American Hip Hop. But before it was time to go home, guests were treated to a wonderful and delicious wedding cake created by the Cake Studio. Different tiers had different flavors; Mango with White Chocolate Mousse, Lemon Coconut and the last tier was filled with Carmel Mousse. To keep with Carla and Richard’s ceremony theme, the cake was decorated with elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
