Maggie & Andrew Sittin’ by the Sea. K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

All senses were engaged at this beautiful wedding reception. The scent of the fresh sea breeze. Bold pops of tangerine flowers against the colbalt blue and white striped table runners. Scrumptious food prepared by yours truly – Pure Joy Catering. Crashing waves in the background and laughter all around. Every detail came together swimmingly and we love the idea of Maggie & Andrew sitting by the sea, K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

The menu included a bit of surf and a bit of turf…

Appetizers: Mini Patron Bottles of Fresh Squeezed Margaritas and Grilled Fish Tacos set in limes // Crisp Wonton Squares with Seared Ahi // Braised Short Rib Egg Rolls // Char Grilled Tender Baby Lamb Chops // Raw Raw Bar with Scallop Shooters, Jumbo Shrimp, Fresh Shucked Oysters

Family Style Dinner: Cubed Watermelon with Pistachio Crusted Goat Cheese // Portobello Mushroom Ravioli with Browned Sage Butter // Hearth Baked Breads & Foccacia // Local Market Green Beans with Caramelized Red Onions and Buttery Toasted Sliced Almonds // Almond Crusted Sea Bass with Lemon Beurre Blanc // Medium Rare Tri Tip Beef with a Red Wine Mushroom Bordelaise and Madeira Green Peppercorn Sauce

Cocktails to Wash it all Down: Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Margaritas // Moscow Mules with House Crafted Fresh Ginger Beer

This was definitely a wedding to remember. There was so much love surrounding this beautiful couple and that really brings us such joy.
