"You Must Have Been Born in the South"

On my last post I talked about the venue and decorations for our most recent wedding at Stoney Cattle Ranch in Heber, UT. If you missed it, read about how she combined a feminine look with the cowboy look.

Now lets get to the good stuff. Our bride recently moved from Alabama and she wanted the food to be a real Southern buffet. On the menu we had Fried Chicken, a Shrimp Boil, Blackberry Cobbler, Grits, and Coleslaw, along with other items. Most of the guests were out of town and stayed for the entire reception. We made sure the guests were well fed as they partied all night long.

Our crowd pleasing Southwestern Sweet Potato Cakes

Caprese skewers: red and yellow tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, balsamic dressing and basil

Our famous Pork Crostini

Shrimp Boil Tray: fresh shrimp, red new potatoes and corn on the cob. Served with option of clarified butter or cocktail sauce.

Our fried chicken made the brides father remark, "You must have been born in the South because this fried chicken is SO good!"
 Instead of a big wedding cake, the bride chose to have a smaller cake. She wanted white on white with fresh flowers adorning the top. We served the guests a vanilla cake with a white chocolate buttercream frosting.

Then for the grooms cake we had a multi-layer "dirt cake", complete with chocolate rocks, Oreo dirt, and gummy worms.
