Abe’s cousin Kristine Kidd, whose delicious food you’ve seen featured all over this blog and my Facebook Page, got married last night to Stephen Peck. Here I am with the groom!

After the ceremony, we feasted on guacamole + every type of salsa imaginable…

…some of the chips were chewy, like the ones at Malo!

Also devoured one of each passed hors d’oeuvres – Zucchini Blossom and Mushroom Quesadillas…

…Mahi Mahi Ceviche….

…and Chayote + Potato Tortilla (<—my favorite one)

A Mexican-themed menu, catered by A Seasonal Table.

…Turkey Mole (Rick Bayless’ recipe)…

A sliver of each – the more traditional chocolate-y one may be the greatest gluten-free dessert I’ve ever tasted! Rich, moist, perfect.

(The tart wasn’t too shabby either.)

Fruit refills, no cream necessary. Even the fresh lychee were sweet!

I shared seconds with Abe.
