Mike and I fell in love over our shared adoration of really good food--and Brooklyn was the perfect place for that to happen. I didn't realize how serious my man was about his eats until after his birthday (our third date) when--I"ll admit--I put forward a second-rate effort in the dinner I made him, not thinking he'd know the difference. Oops!
When we got engaged, we knew that we wanted our wedding to be the best dinner party we'd ever throw, with our guests leaving with full, happy bellies and the feeling of a big warm hug. We picked The Green Building so that our favorite restaurant, Vinegar Hill House, would be able to cater. But the rest was a maze to me; Wedding Crashers was a great starting point, and I think I found most of our vendors here--including a photographer who didn't even blink when we told her we really needed great photos of all of the food.
