My friends Caroline and Eddie got married over the weekend. It was a beautiful and elegant wedding, simple and well organized, exactly what you would expect of Mr. and Mrs. Song.

The reception was catered by Upper Crust at a nice space on Horatio St. I really liked all but one of the hors d’oeuvres…which is a compliment to the caterers. The presentation of each was beautiful and in order of favorite to least, the hors d’oeuvres were mini crab cakes, goat cheese towers, Morrocan spiced salmon tar tar on crackers, mini duck crepes, spicy beef Vietnamese spring rolls.

The buffet style dinner included the basics of mesclun salad, an assortment of rolls, and roasted potatoes. For main dishes, Caroline chose pistachio crusted chicken breasts with caramelized onions, a salmon dish, and a sun-dried tomato pasta. I enjoyed all 3 but didn’t love them. Both the chicken and salmon were very tender, cooked nicely for bulk cooking but the sauces were too sweet for me. My favorite dish on the table was their roasted and grilled vegetables. It was an impressive looking plate with red onions, beets, carrots, asparagus, yellow squash, zucchini, tomatoes, and red and yellow peppers. Each vegetable was cooked perfectly and well marinated.

The wedding cake was a yellow cake with buttercream frosting and a chocolate filling. It was a simple 3 tiered cake with a large crystalled “S” on top that Caroline made. The cake was plated nicely with fresh raspberries and a raspberry sauce. I didn’t think there was enough filling and the frosting was too sweet for me but it looked really nice.
