A cake for a groom

Lesley Lynn and Jeremy Johnson cut his peanut butter and chocolate cake adorned with peaks symbolic of 14 footers the groom has climbed in Colorado. The cake stand was the back of a vintage jeep. At the bottom of it were rocks labeled with the name of the mountain and its height.

When the bride and groom left, guests tossed an unusual recipe of grain and herbs.

A poster explaining what they are said: "There is a native American ritual that tells us the earth takes care of us and gives us harvests of grain for bread and herbs for health, wholeness and sweet savor. This ritual reminds us to to give back the seeds of harvest to feed the earth’s creatures or to take root and return back once again in harvest."

The herbs: marjoram for joy.

Sage: long life.

Lavender: deep devotion.

Rosemary: sweet omen which conveys affections and remembrance all of your days.

"We offer these seeds and herbs with a prayer of blessings to you."
