What a wonderful wedding at The Old American Legion Post 135 Grand Ballroom.  The old ballroom really comes together when the girls from Ivory + Beau put their spin on it.

John and Grace were an awesome couple to work with.  They were from New York and super laid back.  They pretty much told their wedding planners that they just wanted the food to taste good and to let me have at it.  They were also one of the couples that I had the pleasure of doing a tasting for in my home during my move to the new kitchen.  Even though the tastings at the new spot are a lot easier, there was always something personable about doing them out my home.

.We battled the rain but all in all it was another great event.  Grace was a beautiful bride and we wish her and John the best of luck.

Shout out to the girls over at Ivory + Beau!  We love working with you and we appreciate everything you do to make these events even more special than they already are!
