I did not get many pictures on my camera at the wedding, but I did manage to capture my food! It’s almost sad that I took pics of my food at the wedding, kind of like I was “working” since the b.l.o.g is my part time gig, but it did not take away from all the fun
I missed the wine and hors d’oeuvres hour since we were taking pictures, so I don’t have pics of that.
But, I did start the evening with a glass of white sangria. Since we had the wedding at a winery they only allowed their wine and beer – no hard liquor. That was the only negative about getting married at a winery, but we worked around it by having one of my bridesmaids use the Castle’s wine and make red and white sangria! Everyone loved it!
After the appetizers on the upstairs terrace everyone came down to the reception dining room for salad. It was mixed greens with perfectly ripe fruits.
I chose the salmon with polenta and asparagus. I love salmon. I love polenta. My wedding = I get what I love I did manage to actually eat and that was the only time I sat down for 5 minutes all night!
The evening went by way too fast and I woke up the next morning really sad that it was over
I was almost an hour late because my hair took a lot long than expected! Since it was an out of town wedding I didn’t get a chance to do a test run for my hair and the stylist didn’t realize how long it was going to take. It made me super late and I was very stressed out frantically trying to get ready.
And them moment I had been talking about for weeks – CAKE! I was really looking forward to cutting the cake – and by cutting I mean eating Do you see how someone messed up my cake before we even cut it? Boo. But, the photographer did get pics before that happened…
I just had 2 bites as we exchanged cake, but they packed up one piece of each flavor for us to take home Yes! It was chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, white cake with strawberries and cream and white cake with chocolate cream. They were all delicious!
But…they cut my anniversary cake! I specifically ordered the top layer to keep as an anniversary cake and at the end of the night the on site planner said they didn’t realize I wanted an anniversary cake and cut it and served it. I am pretty upset about it since I kept joking that the only reason I was getting married was for guaranteed cake in a year. I don’t know if they are willing to send me another cake, but I’m going to ask…
