Kitchen in Action- Wedding Edition

Just thought I'd share a few pics from our wedding we had here last weekend. The large island was absolutely wonderful- everyone spent quite a long time standing around it! We were also able to do the cake cutting right on the end of the island and there was room for everyone to stand around (we only had 25 people, so it was a reasonable number).

We turned the kitchen table in the breakfast nook sideways and set up a bar, and the crepe makers set up their table in the main part of the nook. There was plenty of room for everyone to mingle and I didn't even stress about etches in the countertop at all! For anyone considering blue bahia granite but afraid that it might etch, I would not worry about it- there were a few minor spills and the counter felt super sticky after the party, but after cleaning w/ Method cleaner, it looks absolutely perfect again.

There was one frightening moment when DH's brother opened a champagne bottle and the cork flew towards the chandies, but miracle of miracles, nothing got hit and all was well!

And, the puppies got dressed up for the occasion of course! They were in heaven since people kept sneaking them food!

The other thing that was absolutely wonderful during the party was having the fridge and freezer drawers on the end of the island. We completely stocked them w/ beer and soda so everyone was able to help themselves without needing to open the main fridge area.

I'd love to see you and your man in your wedding clothes. Were they blue to match the kitchen? [LOL]

It looks lovely and fun. Your puppies are sweet.

Congratulations !! You are the FIRST KIA wedding !! It looks so perfectly set up and sounds like you had a fabulous time. What a brilliant idea to have the crepe makers. We love to go to the one in the University district in NOLA. Yummy and an efficient way to feed everyone. c

Congratulations! How very exciting, looks and sounds like it went well. Those crepes look YUM! And it was nice to see that beautiful Blue Bahia peeking through all the yummy plates.

The canine family members are very dashing in their little bow/bowties :)

All the best to you and your new DH. You survived this building project together, fraught with frustrations and difficulties. That bodes well for your future together!

mmhmm

CEFreeman, DH had a blue tie and his suit is kind of blue, LOL.

nan53, the furbabies were definitely part of everything. DH's brother married us and when we said "I do" the dogs both started barking like crazy- it was strange, don't know how they knew, but I guess it meant they were happy, LOL.

cat_mom, it was actually a wedding dinner, not breakfast.

Thanks westsider40.

trailrunner, the crepes were definitely the highlight of the wedding. We go to the crepe place here probably once a week at least and we knew from the very beginning we wanted them to cater the wedding. It was great, they made 3 different kinds of savory crepes and a bunch of desert crepes and everyone was sharing so they got to try everything (the crepes were too big for people to eat one of each, LOL)

Thanks breezygirl. I think the furkids would like a wedding every weekend for the food alone!

Thanks mmhmmgood. I'm glad we waited until the house was done to do the wedding, we started building it even before we got engaged officially but as soon as we did get engaged I told DH that we needed to get married here.

LOL aliris19, I do love sapphires. I'll let DH know now to plan on some sapphire anniversary jewels! He'll be thrilled to hear it.

remodelfla, I was amazed at how well the house really did support having so many people over. Everyone had room to sit and eat somewhere, there were people in the dining room, great room and gathering room but most everyone spent a lot of their time in the kitchen!

Ginny20, the crepes were delicious! I didn't get to eat any of the cheese or the tea sandwiches we had out because I was too busy trying to talk to everyone but I did make time to eat three crepes!

Thanks francoise47, SaraKat, fouramblues, cottonpenny, chicagoans, and northcarolina

Thanks red_lover. My friend actually made the cake for us.

Congrats!!!!!!!!!!

Love the ring. Gorgeous.

Nice to see that beautiful kitchen in action.

I always think some weekend I'm going to drive by your house on one of our rambling country rides.
All I remember though is woods, and tiers of rocks in the front yard! :)

Thanks so much for including us in the fun.. I know I for one have been looking forward to the event. Love seeing the puppies and especially the ring shot. You have a fabulous home, and might I say --after seeing the ring shot, such young hands :) and as Christine would say, --raised eyebrows here-- we are all looking forward to more 'puppy' pictures! Many congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy life together.

Well, now you've added the most important element to your home --- memories.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Beagles and may you have many blue but happy years together, and many puppies.

RE: Kitchen in Action- Wedding Edition

LOL oldbat2be, I am 29 and my DH is 34, so I like to think of us as young (although I tell DH all the time that he is very old and I'm his young trophy wife, LOL)

Thanks mtnrdredux!
