Good afternoon! Man, I’m lovin’ the two-day work week! 🙂 Happy early Thanksgiving!
Today’s mid-morning snack was a not-quite-ripe peach:
And for lunch, I attacked the leftovers.
I used up the last of the Better Mashed potatoes, as well as some chicken and broc that I cooked yesterday and never got around to eating.
I just love steamed broc. I always think about how my mom would say they are little trees and you need to eat all the leaves!
I cooked the chicken in the wok with some Worcestershire sauce. Yum!
And for "dessert," a handful of raisins.
Wedding Details: Location!
The wedding details are going to be coming more frequently from here on out! Only 39 days to go! 🙂
Our location was a very difficult decision. We looked at about 10 sites before choosing this golf course. My requirements for a location were: (1) they had an on-site caterer, (2) we could have the ceremony and reception in the same place, and (3) it would create a fun party vibe.
We chose the golf course because it had a GREAT inclusive package that included a massive open bar. I’m not going to talk prices on the blog, but if you’re a bride-to-be and are interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
Our package includes:
- An outdoor ceremony on the green. Chairs and an archway are included. Set-up is also included. Our guests will have free valet parking.
- A cocktail hour on the outside veranda. This is my FAVORITE PART of the wedding; unfortunately, I won’t be able to enjoy it because I’ll be taking pictures. The tables will be covered with linens and decorated with candles in hurricane vases. There’s also tiki torches and white Christmas lights. There will be an outside bar serving our signature cocktails (to be determined) and beer. Butlers will pass out appetizers, which include: a fruit tray, a cheese tray, beef Wellington, and smoked chicken canapes. The DJ will be playing music outside, too!
- A rockin’ reception inside the golf club. We chose to have a buffet instead of a sit-down dinner because you get more food options. Our buffet includes: three salads, four side dishes, two meats, and rolls. We’ll have an open bar with liquor, wine, and bottle and draft beer (all top shelf brands). I’m pretty obsessed with the fact that this is real bar, and not a plastic caterer’s bar (see second picture). The French doors in the back of the first picture open up to the veranda, so guests can go back and forth if you that fresh air.
Back to work!
If you’ve been a guest at the wedding, what is your FAVORITE part of a wedding? What’s the most annoying thing about weddings?
Gorgeous! We had the same requirements- We also wanted somewhere that had accomodations very close by (we actually ended up doing everything in pretty much the same spot- ceremony (outdoors at a state park less then 1/4 mile from the reception site that had a hotel attached!). Hmmm favorite part- Watching the first dance and cake cutting (and eating the cake haha). Worst part- bouquet/garter. We did it because it is such a tradition, but watching the people who catch them go through it is always somewhat strange.
