When judging Top Chef, Gail Simmons isn't afraid to express her opinion. So it's only natural that Simmons, who also works as special projects director at Food & Wine magazine, has strong opinions about weddings. She watched all of her friends walk down the aisle before she finally got married last August, and has plenty to say about planning the perfect big day. Recently I spoke with Gail about all things wedding. Here, you'll find details from Gail's Summer soirée (she didn't have a cake!) and learn her tips for a fabulous wedding reception.
