Silver Tureen~ Tapas Dinner to Love Songs

When discussing the menu for the Reception dinner Jessika and I knew we wanted two things. A unique meal with incredible food presentation. Silver Tureen came on board and blew us away! They created a Tapas Menu based on Old Fashion Love Songs that had a modern feel with a nod to Gita's Indian hertiage. The menu was visually stunning and tasted incredible. Robb and Bill, the owners of Silver Tureen, were so easy to work with. They handled the kitchen with skill and patience. Their entire staff were amazing. The wedding guests could not stop raving about the taste and how beautiful it was displayed. I still think about the meal and my stomach begins to growl. Here is Silver Tureen's Beautiful Menu:

To tie in the love song menu, Bob Charest Duo, featuring Bob Charest and Geoff Chartier, played songs each course was named after while that course was being served. It ended with the full band singing at Last in the tent.
