A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

The day has arrived! Mark and Bekka are getting married! Bekka had been checking the weather every day for a week leading up to the day and all it kept saying was rain. We all kept our fingers crossed and hoped for good weather – rain on a wedding day is supposed to be good luck right?

IMG_4664They couldn’t have asked for a better day, and there were in a few sprinkles during the day for good luck.

IMG_4668The ceremony took place outside on the lawn outside the Towers in Narragansett.

IMG_4665The Towers were built between 1881 and 1886. It has survived fires and multiple hurricanes, and remained intact when other buildings near by have crumbled.

IMG_4672You would have to know Mark and Bekka, but this was the perfect place for their wedding reception.

IMG_4674The bride is a talented artist. She and her father found a downed tree in the woods, they cut it into wooden discs that became the centerpieces at the wedding – Bekka did all of the artwork. Check out their signature cocktail!

IMG_4673Mark – ever the beer connoisseur, had some great choices at the bar.

IMG_4685And of course,  knowing Mark, I knew the food was going to be amazing! Well, that, and he told me so…

IMG_4684Both gamers, the cake was quite fitting, and they cut it with a sword before feeding it to one another!

IMG_4683We started off with the carrot and mache salad topped with a lemon balsamic vinaigrette.

IMG_4687We had the artichoke chicken piccata in a lemon white wine sauce with a Francaise crust.

IMG_4688And the pan seared George’s bank scrod with a decadent lobster sauce.

IMG_4691Dessert was green tea, salted caramel and lemon macarons from Silver Spoon bakery and the two cake choices were lemon and salted caramel.

IMG_4701And the favors were made by Ziggy from Fox Point Pickling! Mustard, reslish, sriracha and jam!

What’s the best wedding favor you’ve received?
