Whether you’re a fan of hops, malt, rye, barrel aged, or chili infused, Craft Beer has become an intimate part of many couple’s lives. Bring in a little green barley, wheat, bottle caps, growlers, custom labels, an occasional cigar box, and some great beer to make your celebration uniquely you.

This year, we invited them to our Loft gallery for an amazing Paleo approved meal I prepared (for some of the new dietary commitments). A slow cooked roast, homemade crancherry sauce, organic green beans and cashews, bacon wrapped dates (filled with almonds), persimmon salad, baked apples for dessert and more.
Below are some pictures from the dinner.
