When I started planning my wedding last year, one of my biggest priorities was to have delicious food. I wanted a meal that would be memorable and one that our guests would remember. Thanks to my amazing wedding planner and the culinary talents of Trattoria Grappolo, Sunstone Winery and Solvang Bakery, we got that meal and then some.
All of these pictures in this post are from my amazingly talented wedding photographer Dana Grant, and pretty much make me hungry every time I look at them. The Englishman and I tasted everything that was served before our big day, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.
For our cocktail hour, we had three different Sunstone Wines: Rose, Grenache Blanc and Merlot along with an assortment of beers for guests to sip while they enjoyed some passed appetizers.
We ended up going with two different flavors – chocolate with lemon buttercream and carrot with lemon buttercream. We have the top tier in our freezer but somehow I don’t think it will last until next year.
And that was our wedding food. Huge thanks again to Dana Grant Photography and her amazing pictures! If you are ever in the Santa Ynez area be sure to pop into Sunstone Winery for a glass of rose, Solvang Bakery for some baked goodies, and Trattoria Grappolo for an amazing meal. I’m already planning my return trip up there to eat all of it again.
