Northern California wedding pros Anne Millett of Mira Aster and Nicole Sillapere of Sillapere Events have joined forces to launch Sir August May, a company that specializes in creating scrumptious-looking dessert buffets. They shared these images from a recent dessert buffet they put together for a wedding at Bear Flag Farm, an organic farm in Winters where honey is harvested alongside lavender fields and fruit orchards. Inspired by the setting, Anne and Nicole created a honey-themed dessert display in the farm's apricot orchard—all of the pastries and candies were sweetened with honey (no processed sugar). The buffet featured:

Honey, honey candies, honey sticks, and beekeeping boxes from Beekind (the company has a tasting kiosk at the Ferry Building in San Francisco and a boutique in Sebastopol)

Sparkling mead (made from honeys such as "California Orange Blossom" and "Calidfornia Sage Blossom") from Heidrun Meadery

Pastries, including caramelized honey-vanilla morning buns and tupelo honey-orange blossom and pistachio travel cakes, from Tell Tale Preserve Company

Cheese "cake" from Cypress Grove Chevre

Cheese and round boxes for favors from Cowgirl Creamery
