Last weekend Der and I were lucky enough to attend our dear friends Amber and Andy‘s wedding. Everything about this wedding was gorgeous! The bride, the groom, the food, the flowers, the people, the dancing were all amazing. We had the most grown up fun we’ve had in a long time.
I snapped some shots on my iPhone to share with you all.
Here’s Der and I all dressed up with someplace to go. Thanks Keegan for watching your brothers and for taking this photo.
This picture does not even come close to doing justice to Burr or her divine dress.
Photos were taken of Burr, Andy, Derek and I together, but not with my phone so I don’t have any to share….yet.
Amber said what these flowers are called, but I cannot remember. They were so pretty and perfect.
I would like to draw your attention to the number of glasses. There was more alcohol served with dinner than I usually drink in a decade. Not included in this picture are the margaritas served at cocktail hour after the ceremony or the shot of tequila (yikes) I took with Andy. Needless to say I was pretty snockered by the end of the night. I may or may not have still been a touch drunk the next morning.
The food! Andy and Burr both have exquisite taste, also Andy is a chef so we knew the food would be “smack your mama” good. We weren’t disappointed.
That right there is caviar served in the top of an eggshell. The bottom of the shell is full of butter and hollandaise. It was almost too beautiful to eat…almost. I have had caviar before, but it was nothing like this. This was a party in my mouth. Adding to the party was that giant shot of vodka. I think it was pretty clear that Burr and Andy had every intention of spoiling us AND getting us drunk.
The second course was a divine salad that I inhaled before I remembered to take a picture. What I can tell you is that is was beautiful and delicious.
We chose beef for our main course. It was oxtail, cauliflower mousseline, crispy cauliflower crowned with asparagus tips and reduction sauce-as read off of the menu. All I can say is that I died, went to heaven and came back for more, after the first bite, and it only got better.
And then came dessert, as if I had any room in my belly.
I don’t know what any of the four desserts was called, but they were fantastic.
On top of all that there was a gorgeous wedding cake that I was too stuffed to taste. I think if I had attempted to eat another crumb, I would have burst right then and there, no lie.
It was a spectacular evening full of beauty, grace, poignancy, and love. I am grateful for having such wonderful souls in our lives. Thank you Burr and Andy for allowing us to share in such a special day. We love you to the max!
