Woah! Lots of weddings this past weekend. I worked on setting up 3 of the 5 weddings, and I have to fill you in on the weddings from the weekend before. So here goes:
A pretty purple wedding:
Brown wedding with lots of sunflowers:
Pretty pink wedding:
And finally a super unique steampunk theme wedding. I ran with this theme and loved it! So much fun.
I have to give a shout out to the awesome team at Cross Creek Ranch! They went above and beyond to create these beautiful weddings. They are the most amazing, hard working, creative people I have ever met! I’m proud to know them.
Update in my personal life:
Matt and I are trying to start a family It should be an exciting journey. Stay tuned for all the fun details. Matt also started a new job recently and I will be going back to school part-time in January to pursue my Masters Degree in Nutrition. So many changes going on here!
A celebration was in order, so hubby took me out to a fun dinner at Edison, Food + Drink Lab.
I “borrowed” this description from their website:
“Our kitchen’s only formula is product + technique + creativity2. Chef Pierola and Edison’s talented crew perform daily flavor experiments using the finest components, precise execution and their collective creativity2. The results are new interpretations of everyday food expertly engineered into current, modern cuisine.”
I was expecting more science, I had pictured dry ice and shots served in beakers, but it wasn’t like that. Instead, I believe they focus more on combining interesting flavors that compliment each other. For starters we had sesame chile smoked fish rillette > asian prawn chips, spicy peanut sauce. It was delicious and my favorite thing we ordered:
We also had the potato crusted oysters > dill pickle nectar, house dijonnaise, micro dijon. Delicious and Matt’s fav.
We split the fried green tomato salad > garden arugula, shaved fennel, preserved lemon goat cheese, cherry tomato confit, black olive emulsion.
For the main course I had the kobe steak which was wonderfully flavored but oddly tough.
Matt had the scallops:
And a delicious chocolate tart for desert, served with coconut ice cream and caramelized bananas:
These are two happy newlyweds:
