My sister and her husband Matt gave jars of rosemary-infused sea salt as favors at their Chicago-area wedding last month. I haven’t had much time to cook since then, but finally used it in this linguine & pesto recipe I made today. The rosemary went perfectly with the sage and parsley called for in the dish. It’s perfect warm-weather food. Thanks to Nicole & Matt for the great favor!
I got the recipe from Fitness Magazine – my subscription is an annual Christmas gift from Steve’s Aunt Kathy & Uncle George. Kathy is a fitness nut and loves to share her passion! Thanks for a great gift!

May 14, 2011, was the wedding day of Jessica & Kenny. They were married at Chapin Christian Church. It’s a beautiful, old church, and is the church Kenny grew up in.
One of the favors the guests found when they entered the reception was a bottle of Jones Soda with Jessica & Kenny’s photo on it! What a great idea for a favor! Wedding reception at Hamilton’s 110 North East.
The head table was treated to beautiful raspberry champaign cocktails.
The cake was amazing. The red strawberries went with the color scheme and who doesn’t love chocolate-covered strawberries?!
Aside: Pastor Steve Peters was the officiant, but his “day job” is banquet and catering director at Kickapoo Creek Winery in Edwards. Be sure to check out his venue for wedding receptions for the Peoria area.
Posted by Tiffany/Warmowski Photography. We love to photograph weddings in meaningful spaces such as small country churches near where the bride or groom grew up.
When photographing a couple’s wedding rings, I try to think of something a bit more creative than just the “hand-over-hand” shot. I sometimes resort to putting the rings in the flowers of the bride’s bouquet, but I have been trying to do something more creative than that lately as well. A couple of the photos below are the result of remembering something someone said earlier in the day and incorporating it into the photo.
Pam Gaines not only helped her daughter, Kristen, plan for her wedding — she also made the decorations for Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church and Gee Whillikers Banquet Hall. Pam also made necklaces for the bridesmaids, sashes for the dresses, decorated the wedding cake, and the list goes on.

Favors are a great way for couples to show some personality – and they can also be very useful for guests!
Fans on the seats at Jessica & Tim’s outdoor ceremony (21 June 2008) were particularly useful on their bright, sunny day. Those with less hair seemed to be especially thankful for the thoughtful favors.
