Who says the dessert bar is outdated?

I just love Amy Atlas and her dessert bar features.  This Thanksgiving wedding reception took the dessert bar concept to a whole new level.  The bride incorporated a smashed potato bar & popcorn bar during the cocktail hour and during the reception there was a pie bar & a Thanksgiving dessert display. Check out these photos shot by Stella Alesi Photography and coordinated by Amy Mader, of Platinum Weddings & Events.

The upscale water station and fireplace added to the ambiance of the cocktail hour.The popcorn bar during the cocktail hour from Reel Popcorn, featured Wasabi Ranch, Nacho Cheese, Garlic Parmesan,  Orange & Caramel to make sure the colors matched the overall palette.

Instead of a traditional wedding cake the couple chose to stay with the Thanksgiving theme and serve pie.  The pastry chef of the JW Marriott in San Antonio came up 7 individual flavors of pie (and added caramel candy apples too)!  Some of the pies featured included the traditional Thanksgiving pie of the south–Pecan Pie, the traditional Thanksgiving pie–Pumpkin, the Bride’s favorite–Banana Cream Pie & the perennial favorite–Key Lime Pie.  The groom’s favorite apple pies were served in individual cast iron skillets!

We love anything done by Kellie’s Kandies & Cookies in Austin, Texas.  She created Amy Atlas inspired candy bar featuring cookies in the shapes of scarecrows, apple buckets and turkeys; pilgrim red-velvet cupcakes; chocolate covered peanut-butter balls; turkey brownies and candy corns to make it over the top!

As if that weren’t enough…there were personalized M & M’s in the wedding color palette too!

Stay tuned for more amazing pictures from this Modern Jewish Wedding.
