Congratulations Jill and Ben!

Now that wedding season has winded down, I'm ready to feature so many weddings from this summer! Can't wait to show you more!

The first featured wedding is for Ben and Jill - On August 16th, Jill and Ben tied the knot and celebrated in style at the newly renovated Dome Room at the Arctic Club Hotel. When we first started planning the wedding together, Jill said she envisioned an extremely elegant setting that would set the mood for an incredible party! She had been dreaming about hosting her wedding for years…not only that she could feel like a princess, but that her friends and family would have the time of their lives! That’s what made Jill so special – every decision she made, she kept her guests in mind and really wanted to cater the evening to them. Jill is an amazing hostess, and Chef, so she definitely knows how to throw a party and on her wedding night that was truly accomplished! Their guests enjoyed a tasty candy bar, sliders and fries for midnight snacks, and a “Sharpe Shooter” (Sharpe is their last name) which was their signature shot for the evening!

As for the menu, Jill and Ben thoughtfully selected their dinner entrees and guests enjoyed Citrus Thyme Chicken with White Cheddar Polenta Water Cress, Sweet Pepper Cous Cous with Eggplant and Roasted Vegetables, and Filet Mignon with Balsamic Risotto and Blue Cheese Crumbles. The Arctic Club’s Chef came from the Herb Farm, which was a huge draw for Jill since she has such a passion for all things culinary! Their cake with also to die for – White Cake with Raspberry Filling and Chocolate Fudge Cake with Strawberry Filling. Yum!

Guests partied into the evening, well after the reception was over. When Jill and Ben returned from their storybook horse carriage ride around downtown Seattle, they joined all their friends for an after-party into the wee hours of the evening! The couple then enjoyed an amazing honeymoon cruise to Italy!

One final note - if you’re interested in cooking classes, grab your favorite guy or gal and sign up for either a private or group cooking class with Jill at The Lake Kitchen.

Here are just a few comments from Jill as she reflects on her special day:

"It was the first party I have thrown that I felt totally taken care of. I didn't worry about timing or if someone's place card was wrong, I had such confidence in Kelly that I was able to sit back and enjoy the magical night. I had very high expectations going in to the whole event and not only were they met they were exceeded. When Ben and I got on the airplane for our honeymoon we could barely believe that the whole thing just happened. I was such a dream come true. My goal was to be able to look back and not regret anything or feel like I forgot something. Goal accomplished."
