Wedding Recap: Our Signature Cocktail
No food or recipe posts today. It’s been about two months since Boo and I tied the knot…so without further ado: we’re back to Wolfingham.

We decided it would be fun to have a signature cocktail at our wedding, and with a last name like Wolf, how can you not make a play on it? I’m a big fan of vodka sodas, extra lime. Very highbrow, I know, but it’s lower calorie than many other mixed drinks. And since it’s clear, makes for an easier tomorrow…AKA — improved hangovers! But we wanted to turn up the volume at our wedding.
I bring you…The Howling Wolf: vodka, soda water, a splash of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and a wedge of lime.
And what’s a signature drink without signature straws? We ordered these pretty ladies online. But they weren’t without DIY roots. We painstakingly attached hundreds of personalized drink flags onto the pink and white straws. What I will do for a good monogram or Howling Wolf. Dedication, I tell you!
But we didn’t stop there. We needed pink and gold personalized M&Ms, too.
And pink and gold glitter personalized lollipops.
The bar was outfitted with lots of goodies, including truffle popcorn and candied nuts.
But we couldn’t help bringing some more glitz. Gold Jordan almonds. Beauties!
One of our favorite vendors, Julia Bez did all the calligraphy for our wedding including our menu, table assignments and of course, the drink and hashtag signs. She is amazing. And so talented and sweet.
What’s your favorite mixed drink? Are you having (or did you have?) a signature cocktail at your wedding?
