Three years ago last week, Michael and I got married in Northern Michigan on 7.7.07. It was a perfect day (aren’t all wedding days?), and we have lots of memories from the entire wedding week.
One of the things I wish I remembered more is the food at our reception. My mom spent all kinds of time working on the menu and finding just the right caterer for the event. Michael and I both agreed that we wanted a casual, fun menu for our tented party in my parent’s backyard. My mom gracefully mixed some of my favorite menu items from the Resort with Michael’s southern roots.
Some of the items on the menu:
Glen Eden Green Beans
Strawberry Shortcake Cake and Ice Cream Bar (and small Maker’s Mark grooms cake!)
In honor of our anniversary, we did a slimmed-down version (calories- and variety-wise) of our wedding meal. We had grilled chicken, corn on the cob, and strawberries. Our anniversary meal wasn’t nearly as memorable, but at least we took a chance to reflect. Happy Anniversary, Michael!
