After our first dance, eating some of the delicious food was first on our agenda. The band played some nice low-key music while everyone was eating and socializing.
I made little signs for our chairs, proclaiming our Mr. & Mrs. status.
The food was so delicious. I cannot recommend the Jim Lee Events staff highly enough. The fact that everything was handled in-house made things headache-free, and they sure didn't skimp on the quality. Below is a glimpse at our dinner menu. I only wish I'd eaten more!
Cabernet & Garlic Roasted Beef with Horseradish Cream
Margarita Butter Grilled Breast of Chicken
Blackened Salmon Petit Filets with Lemon Aioli Sauce
Grilled Winter Vegetable Cascade with Five Pepper Dipping Sauce
Mashed Potato “Martinis” with choice of toppings
Bride’s Cake: Champagne Cake with Chambord Filling
Groom’s Cake: Almond Cake with Orange Icing
Late Night Snack
Crispy Homemade Chicken Taquitos with Roasted Corn & Black Beans
Spinach, Mild Green Chile & Monterey Jack Cocktail Quesadillos
After Ross and I had eaten, we made the rounds of the tables to say hello to our guests. We opted to skip the formal receiving line (like many couples do nowadays) and just went around and tried to greet everyone. I wish we'd had more time to talk to people, but we tried to at least say hello to everyone.
Thankfully, our guests were happy to entertain themselves by chatting, eating, and enjoying the great music.
I love that our photographer captured so many fun little moments of people enjoying our reception.
Next up: Speeches!
