Brides & Birthdays

Well gang, Chris has been out of town this week, so our kitchen’s been closed for the most part. Nothing too exciting happening other than some gf pasta and squash stir fry (a variation on this), so I thought I’d share a little bit about Kathryn’s wedding!

Needless to say, it was great. She was absolutely stunning, and everything went off without a hitch (other than they got hitched…haha).

The reception was super fun, complete with signature cocktails for the bride and groom, and a delicious menu that was also fairly gluten-free friendly. I had the honor of working on the program and signage for the wedding, and I have to say, everything looked perfect. Sally, Kathryn’s sister, had the great idea to specially mark the gluten-free or vegetarian menu items. Kathryn and Kevin opted for a heavy hors devours/buffet type set-up, which worked great for the venue and the number of guests Weddings and special events are usually pretty tough on special diet folks like me, so it was an exciting surprise to be able to eat so many of the options. More pictures to come, but here are a few, and some of my signage.

After the wedding, Kat and Kev road off into the sunset (it had long been set by the time they left, but still) and are honeymooning in the Caribbean!

We spent the rest of the weekend celebrating Chris’s 23rd birthday! Saturday was chock full of fun, complete with pool time, Mexican for dinner at El Taco, and plenty of drinks and dancing all night.

We’re excited to get back to cooking next week. This weekend’s temps are supposed be in the 100’s, so we plan on lots of grilling out to keep the heat outside where it belongs!

I miss you, Christy! Can’t wait for you to come home!
