Smack that, all on the floor
Smack that, give me some more
Smack that, 'til you get sore
Smack that, oh ooh
(You had to be there!).
My view of the ceremony - I barely saw the groom!
The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour. Hors d'oeuvres were served for all to enjoy. I am always amazed by pretty little bite-sized food. I think it would be fun making them. Everyone hovered around the bar near 5 pm to get our drinks!
I tried at least 3 kinds out of the 5 hors d'oeuvres.
I've been to SO many weddings that I have a good idea how it goes. Most weddings often offer a lot of food so it's important to pace yourself. It's even more important when you're wearing a dress that is not stretcheable. We started by a spinach salad that I quite enjoyed. Next came 2 beef cannelloni's - I only had one, knowing full well that more food come. This is also when the curtain was closed because the sunlight was bothering some guests and removing my source of lighting (and my apologies for poor pictures).
We were then served a raspberry sorbet as a palate cleanser. I actually really enjoyed the sorbet as it tasted creamy somehow. Next we were served two proteins: beef and chicken! I never understand why there is never a sufficient amount of vegetables! I could have eaten much more asparagus! I ate half of each of the chicken and beef, and thought I was done for the night. Then came a little innocent cheesecake that was my favourite dish of the meal. It tasted so light and was not too sweet. I think I could have easily eaten another two... That's what I believe anyway.
Beef and chicken.
My favourite course: cheesecake!
A wedding has to end with some serious dancing and this wedding delivered! Congratulations to S & L! It may be one of the last weddings for this group of friends (the gang in Hamilton). However, I'm not done. My friend AM from university is getting married in August and The Gastronomer will also be getting married in the near future!
