Says Kelly, “To really highlight the abundance of the area, Karen and I shot at a local dahlia farm, Greenwell Floral. I then used these same dahlias for the dinner table.”

From Kelly: “Dinner took place at Todd’s parents’ home which has a stunning lemon orchard. Ashley Transki from Duo Events, a local farm to table catering company, made lemon saboyan for the dessert from the lemons on the property. Lemons were also used as additional decor on the tables.”

Ashley created a dinner menu inspired by the best seasonal and local ingredients: American Cucumber & Three Carrot Salad, Roots Farm Green Salad, Spot Prawn & Stone Crab Fettuccine, Jimenez Farm Leg of Lamb, and Rustic Peach Pluot Tart with Lemon Saboyan.
