It's All About the Food
When we started planning the menu for our wedding my dad insisted we go all out. I am glad because all we cared about was the food! I wanted it to be tasty and lots of it! Well, I think we were successful in both areas.
We had chicken and veggie kebabs, basmati rice, shrimp cocktail, pita bread with hummus, Greek salad, and tons of fresh fruit. Everything was delicious!
Now onto the desserts. I have a special place in my heart for sweets:) Not only do I love to eat them, but I love baking them too. So I was set on baking for my wedding...and I am so glad I did. It was so much fun! Of course I had help! My dad made about 400 tarts, Kym did the cake and L cookies...and Josh was encouraging along the way:)
We had a black and white dessert/candy station. It turned out super cute! We had Chocolate Crinkles, Dorie's Chewy Chunky Blondies, Lime Coconut snowballs, Parisian Hazelnut Macarons, Chocolate Dipped Oreos, Brownie Buttons, and lots of fun candies! We also had the tarts, L cookies, and of course our gorgeous cake!!
And to top it off we had a gelato bar. Dolcetti in Sugarhouse set up a little gelato bar for us! It was a HIT! We had seven flavors: Lemon, Passionfruit, and Raspberry Sorbetto and Chocolate Hazelnut, Almond Toffee, Dark Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean gelato.
So maybe we went a little overboard with the food, but it was worth it! Enjoy the pictures!
