    The perks of having a super intimate wedding (4 guests, just our parents) is being able to do menus like this.

    But the downside is not being able to share it with our friends. :(

    I understand. I was able to do a pretty great cocktail style reception for my 35 guests. Any more than that and we would have been having spaghettios and water. Your menu really sounds amazing.

  • That's a shit load of delicious food for 6 people. It sounds like you might need help eating it. I am available most weekends in October. :)

    I mean, if I were to run into anyone I know at our venue I obviously wouldn't shoo them away. That would just be rude. Just sayin'...

    That sounds amazing. Is it a tasting menu? Do people choose an entree or get to try all of that? So jealous!

    @Ico07, it's a tasting menu, so no choices (there is 1 person who doesn't like fish and one person who tends to lean towards no meat, so the chef knows to make substitutions where necessary). Tasting menus are probably our favorite way to dine, so we totally jumped at the suggestion when the chef offered it!
