In the Moment: Eating

When we began our recaps, I asked everyone what they'd like to see and hear. Cat, one of our friends who got married a couple of months before us, requested that we share what went surprisingly right. Today I share a few more things that went surprisingly right:
  1. The food was delicious.
  2. Everyone was able to eat something, no one went away hungry.
  3. We had enough for everyone with voracious appetites to go back for seconds and to try both main entrees.
  4. The bride and groom got to eat - not just a small plate, but seconds as well.
Chef Mike of Cafe du Nord was fantastic to work with. Where we had contacted other caterers and they'd been unwilling to remove dairy (butter) from sauces and sautes, Chef Mike had no problem. He also prepared a Vegan Lasagna, added at the last minute when we got a final count for our Vegan friends. My first "What We Did" post counting down our final week as an engaged couple highlighted our food plans and even now I'm amazed at our wedding dinner. So without further ado, here are the photos of our food. I'm really sorry that Smell-O-Vision hasn't been invented yet because the food not only looked great and tasted phenomenal, it smelled wonderful.
