First time Food tasting- First time being a bridesmaid!

Wedding in Palm Springs May 29, 2010!
The wedding is at Dessert Springs a JW Marriott Resort & Spa

Check out the site:

I met the bride Marjorie at my first job out of college. Marjorie and Joe are two really sweet and loving couple. They are very family oriented and are so selfless.

Lobby entrance

The food was AMAZING! We got smaller size portions to taste but
the real portion is honestly the biggest portion of any American wedding
I've ever seen!

Sweet Potato Bisque with Chorizo En Croute!

Arugula, Romaine heart. Teardrop tomatoes, Dr cherries, and Walnut
balsamic Shallot Vinaigrette! The candy walnuts were addicting =)

Soup or Salad?
They both were really yummy but decided to go with the soup!

Coriander Crusted Salmon
Lemon scented risotto with pea tendrils and cipollini onions!
Loved the Risotto!
I knew this was my meal for the wedding day!

Herb Crusted Bone in Chicken
Mushroom and potato hash, jumbo asparagus and shallot pan jus!
Chicken was really soft and huge portions!

Seriously the thickest, biggest portion of Filet Mignon!
8oz center cut Filet Mignon with skillet fried fingerling potatoes,
cipollini onions, wild mushrooms and spinach with sherry reduction! If I ate steak, I'd definitely would finish this! =) =)

Dark Chocolate Bombe!
Soft caramel center, cinnamon anglaise with
cocoa bean tuile! =)

Dark, Milk, and White chocolate pyramid
Passion fruit coulis and vanilla cream.

Just looked pretty =) We chose the dark chocolate Bombe instead.

The cupcakes are the only downfall.
Marjorie initially wanted to have cupcakes
but it seemed a bit dry so Marjorie and Joe
decided to go with mini cakes instead!
Velvet cake! YUM My favorite!
