Mangia Monday: Red, White and Blue!

Happy Memorial Day! In the spirit, today's Mangia Monday is Red, White and Blue! We are so thankful for all of our veterans and we encourage all of you to take a moment to truly remember those who paid the ultimate price for us to live in this great nation! We're so lucky to live in the land of the free because of the brave! Thank you to all of our military!!

Check out this Electric Vodka Lemonade from BevMo!! The American themed presentation will be a hit at any bridal event!

Electric Lemonade (one serving)
2 ounces Skyy vodka
1 ounce Hiram Walker blue curacao
2 ounces Santa Cruz lemonade
1 ounce sweet & sour
Cherries for garnishing

To make a pitcher of this lemonade for a large group, multiple these measurements by the number of guests you expect.

If you’re feeling especially spirited, freeze a cherry or raspberry lemonade to use as ice cubes. The color will begin to change as the ice melts, but the initial presentation is fabulous.

Wedding Wednesday: Amber & Robert

5/16/2015  |  Ponte Winery

For colors they chose purple (eggplant) and lime green which are the colors of the grapes - as they got married in a winery. There were two first looks one with Robert and one with the bride's dad. They had the traditional processional including parents, grandparents, 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, 1 flower girl and 2 wedding bearers. Amber and Robert had the wine ceremony and a quick recognition to the moms by giving them roses. As they were leaving the ceremony area they had a bubble machine facing them throwing tons of bubbles towards the couple and their guests. They had a butler pass Hors D’oeuvre and open bar and additionally, they had a lounge area for their guest where they could relax. The couple even included had patio games such as corn in the hole and a gigantic domino game. As for the cakes: they had a three-tier classy wedding cake in white with silver pebbles, and a wine barrel cake for the groom. It was truly an elegant and perfect day!
