Alice and Thor in Hamilton, NJ

Heather Waraksa

Alice and Thor were married at the Grounds for Sculpture, a sculpture garden in Hamilton, NJ. Alice is from San Francisco, Thor spent his early childhood in Tanzania, and the couple now lives in Brooklyn. They chose to marry in New Jersey because Grounds For Sculpture "is such a magical place," says Alice. The reception was held at Rat's Restaurant, which overlooks the garden. "We loved the food and atmosphere at Rat's, and the staff took wonderful care of our guests," says Alice. The couple wanted their cake to reflect Thor's Swedish heritage; they let the venue's pastry chef run wild with the design. Read more about this couple's wedding here.
