Tonight was the beginning of the TNT wedding celebration, although most in the wedding party started the celebration on Wednesday. We had a fun rehearsal at the wedding site and then headed over for a magnificent dinner at La Perla Bistro with the Amazing chef Chris Jackson. As guests arrived they were greeted with wine and black raspberry spritzers. Then they enjoyed the "All American" passed appetizers - Cheeseburger Sliders, Dungeoness Crab Cakes, Macaroni & Cheese Fritters, and Grilled Lamb Lollipops. The guests cocktailed and visited and then there were some touching speeches by the mother of the groom and TNT...and many, many happy tears in the house. Dinner was next with "station dining". The stations included a Pan Pacific station with lots of sushi among other tasty treats, a Little Italy station with the most amazing gnocchi ever, and lastly the South of the Border Station featuring the house made pork tamales steamed in banana leaves. Every station was incredible and abundant; each a full dinner on its own.
