A RUSTIC-ROMANTIC AFFAIR AT THE UBC BOATHOUSE AND IN RICHMOND
WE’VE GOT OUR FINGERS CROSSED. As the grey, dreary days of winter are hopefully winding down, we know that spring is around the corner. Bundles of fresh blossoms, the harvest season’s first vegetables begin to sprout, and most of the days are filled with sunshine. Spring also means the start of wedding season, a time of year when the Truffles Fine Foods team kicks into high gear to make culinary fairy tales come true.
EVERY WEDDING WE CATER IS a truly distinct affair, and Randi and Alex’s elegant celebration last August was certainly no exception. Their perfect day began with a fun-spirited photo session near the docks in Richmond followed by an exchange of vows overlooking the water and a reception with all their friends and family at the UBC Boathouse.
THE THEME THAT THE COUPLE chose was rustic-romantic, an idea that is both stylish and playful. Marrying their rustic décor with select modern touches created an ambiance that reflected Randi and Alex’s tastes. Randi adores shades of white, blush, and cream, colours that were woven throughout. The floral arrangements in white and blush were beautifully paired with reclaimed timbers, mason jars, burlap, and other accessories to complete what Randi set out to achieve.
INSPIRED BY THE COUPLE’S VISION, the Truffles team was given the creative freedom to plan menu items that complimented the theme. Heirloom vegetables and locally-sourced fare took centre-stage on the glamourous tables the guests dined upon. Platters of local artisan cheeses and BC charcuterie were passed around before an incredible feast. Grilled New York steaks, succulent chicken from the Fraser Valley, and tender squash ravioli followed appetizers of seared sea scallops and heirloom salad with tomatoes and bocconcini. Guests with a sweet tooth were satiated with our lemon blueberry cheesecake, chocolate raspberry tarts, and dreamy dark chocolate mousse with fresh whipped cream. We were honoured to be able to prepare and serve such a meal for Randi, Alex, and their guests that only enhanced how memorable the day was.
