James and I have always talked about having burgers and fries, tacos and chips and salsa at our wedding. This is not glamorous, but glamorous isn’t us. It’s also great food to eat in general, when drinking, when hungry, in the summer and pretty much is the epitome of our diet (particularly the chips and salsa).
We started getting quotes from caterers and only one heard what I truly wanted: East Coast Grill. Earlier this week, James, my mom, Natalie and I went to a tasting and were hooked. Not only did the event manager add chips and salsa as an appetizer (without us even prompting!), she was incredibly upbeat and easy to work with. Furthermore, the food was out of this world good, we’d be supporting another local Cambridge business and they were incredible with offering a delicious, gluten free meal. Not to mention vegan, vegetarian and dairy free options.
It’s a great feeling to have the food and rental items mostly taken care of. Now, James and I can focus on the “fun” stuff over the next 10 months (I know, it’s crazy that we have to book a caterer so far in advance!). We kicked off the fun stuff by starting to antique for random decor items. After a trip to SOWA (which proved to be expensive and limited), we found ourselves at the Cambridge Antique market. Holy wow. Four floors of “junk” and treasures. We didn’t buy anything but came away with lots of great ideas, which seem to morph on a regular basis.
PS Our table cloths came in and they are awesome. We’ll be ordering all of our linens from Linen Tablecloth!
