We had an amazing wedding near my folks' house in South Texas. The ceremony and reception took place in a citrus grove on property owned by family friends who grow oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, limes, avocados, mangoes, and papayas. All of which were served to our guests.
In order to highlight the local cuisine (and our favorite food), we had a delicious barbeque buffet with smoked brisket and chicken from the charming Mr. Galvan. This was served with tortillas, grilled vegetables, charro beans. My mom baked six varieties of cakes from scratch that everyone enjoyed after BBQ. Everything was just perfect.
Instead of cutting and sharing a wedding cake, the hubby and I decided to ceremoniously cut the brisket and kick-off the buffet line. The even hooked up the electric carving knife for us!
Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and several friends testified to eating themselves sick. We are grateful to everyone who made the trip to Texas and joined the celebration. We count ourselves very lucky to have people to share this wonderful memory with us.
