On June 25, C and I decided to tie the knot and get hitched up all legal-like. Getting prepared for the wedding was actually quite fun and all the design, crafting and baking were definite stress relivers. Half of the wedding food was catered from a local catering company as well as a few items from, costco (cheese!), a sushi restaurant (sushi!) and a vietnamese restaurant (chicken wings!). The rest of it was made by me and some dedicated friends. It turned out wonderfully and there was enough food to feed the hungry and then some. I enlisted my good friend kyla to also help with the cakes as well as my mother in law who harnessed all her church ladies into baking up a storm for us. Not to be outdone, I too made cupcakes and a cake as well.
I designed our wedding programs to look like a recipe card. the front half had all the necessary program information, like who was oficiating the ceremony & what song we walked down the aisle to (Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need to Get By”). The other side, contained our wedding cupcake recipe which is Ina Garten’s Coconut recipe found Longhorn Grill, which admittedly did look appealing from the outside, but inside it looked like a country cupboard. I’m glad we ate across the street. Good lemonade too!
Damn, why did we come back to Vancouver again? Oh yeah, REAL LIFE. Sigh.
