Breaking Bridal Bread
Posted by Shira Savada
When you think of monograms, bread isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. But it definitely came to mind for Jamie and Steven, when they were planning their wedding-day menu. The couple incorporated different food elements into their wedding decor that were beautiful to look at and also delicious to eat.
1 Ornate loaves of bread and a towering pyramid of macarons were decorative and delicious.
2 Judy Tallant of Tallant House created thousands of macarons for our wedding. We gave a dozen to each guest for our favors, and the rest she displayed on cones that she made with chocolate.
3 The shape of these dinner rolls were modeled after the laurel branches that surrounded our monogram. They were wrapped in natural waxed paper to tie in our kraft paper elements.
4 I visited Bakery Nouveau to watch them mock up the dinner rolls. First they kneaded the dough into long rolls.
5 Then the baker cut each roll to the proper size for serving.
6 The leaves of dough were woven together.
7 The finished roll, ready for baking.
8 A bread that mimicked the monogram was also created.
9 Other bread had the couple's names and wedding date.
10 The bread and macarons that doubled as decor completed the reception's look and really filled in the table centerpieces for less than the cost of flowers.
