In addition to Ellen’s passion for design, Ellen and Steve incorporated their shared love of music throughout the reception – including the reception tables named for music equipment manufacturers.

Ellen and Steve provided boxes of s’mores as wedding favors – yum!  Inside each box were a few creative s’more recipes along with candy and marshmallows.  These boxes came in handy a bit later in the evening…

After the reception, guests were invited to join the bride and groom at a bonfire that on the Rockwood Manor grounds.  Guests broke out cigars to commemorate the occasion, and Ellen’s step-brothers provided some unique entertainment while everyone enjoyed the s’mores wedding favors… fire breathing!  Yep, the brothers are actual fire breathers – how cool is that??
