Blessings From a Catering

I had the privilege of catering this weekend for the sweetest newlyweds and their families. It was not only a privilege but a blessing. This young couple met while in school in Africa with their missionary families. He from Canada and She from Alabama. (This was a celebration of their marriage- they had previously had two weddings in Africa before coming back to the states and then on to Canada to live. )Both had family members from all over in attendance and it was such a pleasure to listen to stories, hear them all
catching up on each other's lives and knowing that they all were Christians and included our Lord Jesus in every aspect of their lives. It was a small intimate affair and I am so glad that I was a part of it.

A close up of one of Rebecca's cakes- it was as good as it looks, too!

The Buffet was a simple menu of Chicken salad croissants, fresh fruit & dip, guacamole & chips, and tri-colored tortellini pasta salad and wedding punch.

That looks like a lovely wedding. The cakes were very pretty and the rest of the food looks delicious. I love the black accent pieces with the little birds - they looked great with the white linens.

What a fabulous celebration, and I love the background story, too! Those cakes look dee-lish, and of course your food styling was magnificent as always! Fun!
