Quite possibly, the late night buffet was one of the things I was most excited about while planning our wedding. I freaking love anything baked. Cake, croissants, breads, cookies, you name it, I'll eat it. So when it came to planning our late night buffet, I went a little nuts. I wanted a cake in every flavour. Dan was slightly revolted though, so we turned it into a sweet and savoury buffet to make him happy too since, you know, he was the groom and all...
It started pouring rain halfway through dinner, so we had to move inside a bit earlier than we had intended for our late night buffet and dancing since our outdoor dance floor got pretty damp. The father/daughter, son/mother dance was to Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World". It was very sweet. I thought I would be a wreck dancing with my dad since I'm such a Daddy's girl, but I'm pretty proud of myself that I held it together!
And now, the food!!! We didn't get any shots of the savouries, but here's what we had for the people who aren't as obsessed with cake as I am: Mini Grilled Cheese with Paradiso Cheese, Bacon & Caramelized Onions, and Roasted Fingerlings with Braised Short Ribs, Roquefort & Veal Jus. And then of course we had my favourite sweet from Ezra, the “Coffee & Doughnuts” Mini Coconut Doughnuts with Coffee Crème Anglaise. *drool*
|Our cake and cupcakes from The Wedding Cake Shoppe. So tasty!!!|
|The topper I made of Dan and I and the cats.|
|We met waiting for the elevator on the 9th floor.|
|Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and beautiful piping work. The cake topper is salt and pepper shakers which were a gift from the lovely couple in Chinatown where I bought all my paper lanterns.|
|Our cake and cupcakes were from The Wedding Cake Shoppe in Toronto. The cupcake picks and wrappers were handmade by me!|
|The picks said "Gimme some sugar" or "Veronica loves |
|We put out the cheese left from the cocktail hour earlier.|
|Handsome men dig in.|
|I was obsessed with these napkins I bought. I still have some left and I think they are the funniest things ever.|
|I had some caramel left from the favours so I poured it into a mason jar for the buffet.|
And a little bit of dancing to close off the night. We used Laura at Sounds of Distinction for our DJ and she was AMAZING. We danced non-stop start to finish. When it came time to turn on the lights and head home, no one wanted to go, we were all having too much fun!
Well folks, that it! We got married, we ate, we danced, we laughed, we cried. It was incredible. More than I could have dreamed of! One last post about our details and we'll get back to real life!
