L+T Wedding (Part 3)

Party time!! Now, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE going to weddings and speculating beforehand about what the food, drinks, and cake will be like. We decided to pick our dream food list of items we would die to have if we were the party guests; bacon wrapped dates with goat cheese, shrimp cocktail remoulade, mini Boursin burgers (do you wish you were there yet?), Ahi tuna, bacon wrapped filet medallions, lobster mac-and-cheese (I’m getting hungry typing this), garlic mashed potatoes, shrimp pasta with lobster cream sauce, jalapeno cornbread, and chocolate raspberry mini muffins. Holy cow. AND, if you weren’t full enough, there was also the most delicious cake with tiers of vanilla and fresh strawberries, chocolate oreo, and amaretto. Thankfully, the restaurant responsible for the catering is here in town, so we like to eat there on our anniversary and order some of the same items from our reception-it’s like a trip down memory lane for our taste buds!

I spent many long days constructing the crystal trees for our tables and we placed a few white orchids in the branches to make them look as if they were flowering. I also loved the white chiffon canopy over the dance floor and I made a giant flower ball to hang in the center-very romantic to dance under. We hung four frames over the head table to spell out L-O-V-E and I really love the bit of graphic statement they gave to the room. Todd has the biggest sweet tooth his dentist and I have ever seen, so a candy table was a must, and we had fun coming up with little signs and descriptions for the different candies and candy bags.
We left our reception full of great food, our feet bruised from dancing, our cheeks sore from laughing, and hearts full of love for each other and our amazing family and friends. Thanks for joining in our special day!!
