Come and Get It!

I remember specifically the night of our engagement, when all is blissful and full of excitement, Chris made it quite clear that we would have GREAT food at the wedding.  Not good, great.  We will not be the couple who is so wrapped up in saying hello to everyone that our belly's are growling by the time we leave for the evening (we will be social, but have full intentions of enjoying the meal).  Chris and I want to sit and help ourselves to a good old, stick to your ribs kinda meal.  I threw out an idea to Chris that evening which he wrapped hold of and we contacted our caterer within the following few days.

Our wedding will be catered by Catering Creations!  Jason Conover, co-owner of this fine business, has catered several mouth watering meals at our church.  Pulled pork, chicken, green beans, salad, rolls, mmmm good.  Basically, our food will fit right in with our backyard wedding, bar-b-que!! 

Side note... our venue has a dinner bell which will be used at our wedding, this makes me smile.

I was ALL about picking out a cake lady for our big day.  I could eat wedding cake every day of the year and be oh so happy.  I quickly contacted two of my fine friends who I have held onto the memory of the taste of their wedding cakes.  Both of them used the same cake lady, so I took it as a green light to book her!  Our cake (actually cakes, we have six of them) will be made by the wonderful Sonja from Celebrations by Sonja

Her work is as delicious as it is beautiful.  I was so sad when I went to my appointment with her, however.  I had promised Chris we would go together for the whole trying out wedding cake experience, so we are holding off until November when he is in town and we can pick out some flavors then.  This didn't stop me from sitting down with her and sketching out my ideas and I must say, our cake table will be perfect.  I have begged my mom to purchase more than is needed because I want left overs, so we shall see.  The great thing is, Sonja throws in your cake topper for free so you are sure to have your dessert for your one year anniversary.  Just writing this post makes me want to convince Chris to order a cake for no good reason at all before our wedding, just because I love it that much.
