Wedding chow

So I went to a very cute wedding this weekend of one Mike and Gretchen. It all took place in the town of Aurora NY, adorable little town, like 5 stores, a big lake, and lots of time to mellow. Look how cute they are!

Of course I'm going to talk about the food. Cocktail hour and dinner were at the
Aurora Inn we were all staying at (cute bed and breakfast!) We were in a lake side room with a beautiful view of one of the finger lakes.

the third floor balcony (top one) was ours

The Inn had delicious food all night long. Amazing toasted garlic bread with bruechetta, all types of cheese and delicious fresh fruit and veggies. The first course salad was to die for... AMAZING!! It was a bed of spinach with candied walnuts bacon onions and a home made walnut dressing. I mean how beautiful does that look! I'm totally going to recreate this salad! DELICIOUS!

For dinner I had the fillet mignon with jumbo shrimp... sooo delicious. The shrimp and meat were cooked perfectly and served over a delicious mashed potato. I would show you a picture but I chowed in too fast before taking one... whooops!

Dessert was an array of so many tasty treats. My favorites being the almond cookies, linzer cookies, pistachio encrusted cannolis, caramel cheesecake, cherry pie and fresh fruit (yes i did try all of them plus more...). John fell in love with the tiramisu.

And of course I have to include a picture of John and me... :D

Oh and we can't forget about Sunday morning! It started with a basket of goodies left at our door, nice hot coffee and and some mini muffins and a paper. After a relaxed morning of coffee reading and muffins we headed downstairs to meet up with everyone for brunch. John had an omelet with fresh fruit and delicious whole wheat bread with raspberry jam (the jam was amaazing) I had some eggs over easy also with fruit and bread. DELICIOUS!!
