EAT, Drink, and Be Married!
When you put two restaurant owners together, what do you get? FOOD! Andy and Julie, owners of several restaurants in Charlottesville, Richmond, and DC tied the knot at Keswick Vineyards on Sunday, June 12th. With two foodies getting married it was no secret that food and beverages were high on their priority list for their wedding!
They were looking for their guests to enjoy “an experience” much like the story of their love. Every part of their day was packed with memorable food and drinks for their friends and loved ones to indulge on. Starting with pre-ceremony lemonade cocktails, followed by fresh hand-shucked oysters during cocktail hour, and ending in a trip around the world with food stations by Harvest Moon, Andy, Julie, and their guests DINED.
The dinner spread consisted of four stations. First, a biscuit bar with friend chicken and fried green tomatoes and spicy pimento cheese. Second, an Asian bar with ramen noodles, garden rolls, and Yakitori agidashe. Next, a trip to Mexico! Individual pork carnitas with fresh guacamole and cilantro. And finally, the main attraction (so much so that Andy personally gave a nod to it during his welcome speech to make sure everyone didn’t miss out)…the Cheesesteaks! Philly Cheesesteaks with shaved rib-eye with all of the fixin’s. We can’t lie, it was a bit of torture having to wait until its grand opening to enjoy the flavors our noses already smelled!
Congratulations to Julie and Andy! Much like a good steak and cheese you two really are perfectly paired.
