In my last blog post, I talked about the sentimental details of our wedding day back in June. Today, I wanted to share all about our FOOD, because it was all just so good. All photos by Hannah Kathleen Photography.

First I'll share our place settings, because they turned out so much better than I planned. Our dinner plates were plastic cut crystal from Sam's Club and our flatware was wooden disposables from Amazon. Virtually everything could be thrown away, which eliminated the need to have servers.

Rog and I aren't fussy people. We were most concerned about everyone just having a great time at our wedding reception, so we wanted the food to reflect that casual vibe. Originally, we talked about having food trucks, but with our short timeline, it just wasn't going to happen. One of my family members suggested chicken barbeque, and we were immediately on board.

We hired All American BBQ out of Falconer, NY to do the catering. They arrived at the venue early and cooked everything right on site. Our guests later said that they were so excited to walk past the food on their way to the ceremony site.

As for drinks, we made the last-minute decision to borrow a canoe to serve the alcohol. We also had plenty of water on-hand and lots of lemonade.

For dessert, we had cheesecake! Very special family friends offered to make individual servings of an array of flavors, and they were a huge hit. My Uncle Tim built the steps that they were displayed on, and I'm not sure I've ever seen cheesecake look so magical.

A few hours later, we had an ice cream bar. It was pretty basic with just a few toppings, but it seemed like everyone loved the mid-dance party snack. I found the little basket about a week before the wedding at TJ Maxx.

I made a more "traditional" cake the day before our wedding, and I shared those details in my last wedding post.

I'll stop here for today, but I'm hoping to be back soon with a few more posts before I wrap up our wedding on the blog! Anyone else hungry?
