If you missed the rest of my wedding recap you can read it here…
On to the last part! This post does not follow a chronological ordner 😉
Early on Albrecht and I knew that our vision for this weekend would include a kitchen where “we” could cook for everyone. Just like at home the kitchen is the heart of it all, so we felt like it would add a lot of value to our weekend if the kitchen would be in our hands and not have the food catered to us. The question was always though how we could pull that off, since we knew that both Albrecht and I would not be able to cook ourselves. There are only very few people who I would trust with running a kitchen under not so easy circumstances with everyone else helping out – Alex (pictured above) being at the top of that list! Let me tell you – we lucked out having Alex there! He volunteered to run the kitchen and did so, with so much joy! It didnt matter how stressful things got, he always was willing to answer questions, managed all the people volunteering and miraculously was also part of every moment of our wedding. Non of it would have been possible without Alex help!
We served sheet cake right after the wedding ceremony. We baked the sheet cake beforehand and it saved a ton of time on the weekend itself and worked out wonderfully!
Preparation for the salad bar we had at the buffet!
This cheese plates were a big hit at our wedding and I´m still so very impressed how beautiful they turned out!!
Everyone sat down for the reception and these cheese plates were waiting at the table. It was a nice way to start the evening on a relaxed note. Also, it looked really nice which doesnt hurt either 😉
Besides the cheese plates we had a full buffet with a salad bar, quiche, anti pasti and so much more. Sadly I only have a picture of half of it.
For the main course we served pasta with either tomato sauce, meat sauce or parmesan.
The parmesan was also a big hit. Alex re-heated the pasta and put it into the parmesan! Delicious!
We cut the parmesan into 80 small pieces afterwards and everyone got to take a piece home!
For dessert we served lemon-mascarpone mousse and instead of a wedding cake we did apple cumble with whipped cream! It was so good!! Since Albrecht cant it gluten and lactose, this was an easy way to substitute the traditional wedding cake.
Our wedding weekend was more than we could have dreamed or hoped for and I´m so glad we have it to look back on it our whole lives!
