Our Wedding Reception

With no end to the pandemic in sight, Casey and I wanted to make sure our guests could at least have a little fun for driving so far. We rented an Airbnb and with the owner’s permission, we had a lunchtime party in the backyard. We had ten guests. Bloomster’s handled the tables, chairs, and flower arrangements.

Our party was as outdoor, open-air as possible.

Our catering was done by Georgy’s of Kolkhida, a Georgian restaurant in Santa Clara. We had previously eaten at their food truck in Mountainview.

Georgian cuisine is one of my favorite foods in the world… Their most well-known dish is Khachapuri, a fluffy bread that is a cheese boat, topped with a raw egg in the middle. It is more delicious and rich than pizza because the cheese comes from milk from a certain mountain the Caucuses… we also had spinach balls with walnut paste, called Pkhali, and Badrijani, a pomegranate seed topped-eggplant at our wedding.

Being seltzer addicts, we also had Topo Chico, paired with Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka at the reception. Honestly, can you name a better duo?!

The dish that stole the show, however, was Rusty’s homemade cookie cake tower. She certainly understood the assignment. She used to work for the cookie franchises at the mall, in the 80’s, so we knew it was going to be great! Each layer was rich with icing. Honestly my mouth is watering just thinking about how delicious the cake was.
