It's been a while since we've blogged--wedding planning in no joke! Today, we went to "To Your Taste" Catering in Alexandria, VA so we could sample/finalize our menu for our big day. The crew there has been hard at work creating gourmet masterpieces for our celebration.
Chef Shana Steele is a bundle full of energy and she is so excited to bring our friends and family tastes from our worlds. She has designed a menu highlighting bites that speak to Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, DC/Maryland/Virginia, and even Guam!
This is just a small preview of what is to come on our big day. We have so much to do, but can't wait to have loved ones celebrate with us. hope everyone enjoys the food that represents the places we have lived and love.
