Holy Moly Matrimony: Wining and Dining at Bouchon

We arrived at Bouchon Bistro early, before many of our guests who had stopped to sight-see along the Strip or gamble in the casinos. We first stopped to take a photo outside the entrance to the restaurant. We have done this every time that we have gone to Bouchon—just normally not with the help of a professional photographer!

The private events coordinator greeted us as we walked in and showed us to the Bocuse room, the private room that we rented for the evening. We had dropped off our place cards, centerpieces, and guestbook materials on Friday afternoon, and the staff did all of the setup. They did an excellent job. We were very impressed with the overall look and atmosphere of the space.

As we waited for our guests to arrive, I took the chance to check my messages. My sister had tagged me earlier that morning in a photo, so I was pleased to see a lot of congratulatory messages in my inbox. Still, this photo probably indicates that I check my phone too often!

We mingled and talked with our guests as they arrived. Our reception, like our ceremony, was small, so it was nice to spend time with our family and close friends.

As we mingled, guests also signed our photo mat. We can’t wait to put one of our wedding photos in the frame and display it in our home.

We had an open bar, but we also arranged for the restaurant’s sommelier to select a red and a white wine for the evening based on our menu. Most people drank one of the two chosen wines, although Mr. Mole stuck with his beverage of choice: a Coke.

Along with the drinks, we also had four passed appetizers: dayboat scallops en croute, seasonal mushrooms vol au vents, smoked salmon pave on toasted pumpernickel, and potato croquettes. Everyone raved about each kind.

As cocktail hour drew to its close, we got ready to cut the cake.

    @Future Army Wife: Haha. I assume that our photographer did that for some reason? I have no idea.
