Our next submission comes from the Rico Suave of the West Coast, Luis Godinez. Here’s the story from Mr. Suave himself:
“I pulled a scandalous maneuver and made sure I was the first to eat. As soon as the DJ told me he was gonna release the tables for the buffet service I made a beeline to the buffet table and told the servers I needed two plates, and he got them for me. All the other vendors were surprised when I told them me and my asst/2nd had already eaten.
I did feel nice to have a full plate of food that wasn’t cold.
Tomato Basil Chicken plus Beef Tri-tip with Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce.
Salad with walnuts, cheese, and this kick ass vinaigrette dressing.
Bakery roll and butter.
(There was also this kick ass mash potatoes parfait station that I completely missed. Bummer)”
We photographers definitely need to eat, so we can take those candids and first dance photos. Match point goes to Mr. Suave himself.
This lovely meal was devoured at a wedding I shot for Brittany Esther a month ago at the Banff Spring Hotel . The dinner was a buffet style, and let me tell you, the spread was absolutely fantastic. The top plate consisted of Wild Mushroom Ravioli, Roasted Chicken, Mashed potatoes, some Chicken Taurine, Greek Salad, Caprise, Mustard Potato Salad, a spring roll and shrimp, and let me tell you, I LOVE shrimp. The desserts were phenomenal, with the bottom ones being bread pudding and Chocolate Cream Pie. Yes I ate this, for the blog of course.
