When bridal couple Amy Nimmo and Jason Fawcett told Kathe Olsen of Fresh Horizons Creative Catering they wanted to do something memorable for their March wedding reception, Olsen really ran with it!

“Since most of the guests were traveling from out-of-town, we wanted to make sure that their trip was worthwhile,” says Nimmo. “We wanted the reception to be fun and different; Kathe and I researched many ideas to find which ones would be just right.”

The highlight of this collaboration?

Ice plates. Yes, plates made out of ice.

Designed to serve a light intermezzo of sorbet, the diamond shaped plates of ice displayed an underlying etching of a heart--- one of the themes for the wedding. The mango flavored sorbet was chosen to be a match for the color-scheme of the wedding, and the plates were designed to be the “icing” underneath.

Other distinctive concepts Fresh Horizons planned for the event, which took place at the Southwest School of Arts and Crafts, were a late night snack bar featuring hot dogs (the groom’s favorite), a Martini luge dispensing green apple or pomegranate flavored martini’s and a mini dessert bar of fresh fruit pastries.

“It’s so exciting when we get to be this creative,” says Olsen. “We do a lot of different and unique things – it’s what we do – but every so often a wedding comes our way that really allows us to play, and this event did just that!”
