Eating Our Way Down the Aisle

John and I had a day chock full of yummy food.  We started the good eats at Maria's on Franklin, where we met with Judge Reilly, our wedding officiant, for lunch.  They serve breakfast all day and it was delicious!  Judge Reilly was great to chat with and gave us a copy of what will be a lovely ceremony.

Later in the evening, we went to our venue and had a tasting.  We tried eight different appetizers while we were there.  The top ranking ones were the chicken marsala friand (not pictured- we had already gobbled it up) and the bacon wrapped apricots.  Other samples included bacon wrapped scallops, chicken cordon bleu (served cold, very strange), zucchini boats, roast beef crostini, and shrimp skewers. 

Much to our surprise, the tasting also became a wedding planning session.  Our coordinator was there and wanted to hash out a LOT of details: how many guests we expected, table layout, wedding day time line, acoustics, decorations...  I know that these are all important things, but it was a little unexpected and made the evening not quite as relaxing as we had hoped.  In fact, it actually became pretty stressful (and Holly + food + stress = no fun).

Stay tuned for more wedding plans and for updates on my project!
