Today I attended the taping of the 500th Martha Stewart Show. To celebrate the occasion, Okamoto Studio created a beautiful ice sculpture and it inspired me to share other beautiful ways to use ice in your wedding.
While most people think of cliched swans when they think of ice sculptures, I once worked with a bride whose caterer created a bus out of ice for her wedding. It seems an unusual choice, but the couple first met on a public bus -- he followed her off and asked for her number. Then, a few years later he proposed as they drove past a bus stop that he had decorated with tissue paper bells. So, you see, for them a bus was actually a romantic symbol.

This ice bar was also created by Shintaro Okamoto of Okamoto Studio. Seafood appetizers and drinks are set into hand-carved depressions so they keep cool.
