It’s Time to Eat, Drink, and Be Married!

If you’re looking at my blog right now, you’re probably noticing the posts are pretty lean right now. At the time of writing, the last recipe was published on June 24 and I don’t intend to post another one for about three weeks. What’s up with that?

The answer is pretty simple – we’re getting married! The handsome guy in the picture on my sidebar and I are getting hitched, and we’re doing everything ourselves. Yes, we are crazy enough to “self-cater” our wedding. That means there’s lots of cooking going on around here, but not a lot of time for photography and writing! Currently these guys have taken over the kitchen counter:

hibiscus sand dollar cookies leaf and luau cookies

While an undoubtably large portion of the work lies ahead of us in the week to come, a lot of preparation has been happening over the past few months. I can’t exactly label our efforts a success yet because the reception hasn’t happened, but I’m feeling fairly confident and (currently) not regretting our decision to self-cater. I can’t wait to share my process of planning and preparation with everyone after the wedding and hope I’m able to inspire a few more brides, grooms, and their families that self-catering is feasible. Oh, and there will be more great recipes for folks who aren’t looking to host a reception or large party any time soon. =)

Adios for now!

      Thank you! I can’t wait to share more photos of the “big day.” I’ll get back to posting after our honeymoon!
