Our Engagement Party!!!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

It was a perfect night where 120 of our closest family and friends shared in the celebration of our engagement.

We had an intimate dinner with our close family and friends at Pasta Pelican. An Italian restaurant located on the waters separating the the island 0f Alameda and the Oakland's famous Jack London Square.

We ate and we ate and we ate!

Ramon and I decided to have the following served buffet style

NEW YORK STEAK thinly sliced

SALMONE PICATTA Fillet of salmon served in a lemon butter sauce with sauteed mushrooms, capers and fresh basil

POLLO PELICANO Pan seared chicken breast served in a creamy sherry wine sauce with artichoke hearts, diced roma tomatoes, capers and fresh basil

FETTUCCINE ALFREDO Fettuccine served in a creamy, garlic and parmesan sauce

BOLOGNESE A hearty meat sauce topped with meatballs served over linguine

*** All entres were served with tossed house salad with vinaigrette as well as caesar salad, roasted seasonal vegetables, roasted potatoes and assorted fresh baked breads.

We indulged in delicious food, fabulous drinks, wonderful company, great music, memorable toasts and ending it by dancing the night away.

Here are a few pics to recap our Engagement Party.

{Our cake consisted of light sponge cake, whipped cream topping and fresh strawberry filling}

{We really wanted to do something simple with our table set up. We decided on rolled up napkins, CD favors which were placed on each bread plate. We also placed 3 framed pictures from our engagement shoot which surrounded the oil, vinegar and extra condiments and topped the table off with a light sprinkle of rose petals.}

{Ending the night with a KISS!.... with my future mother-in-law}

Please stay tuned as in the next post I will reveal a special video performance that we surprised Ramon with. Hahaha, so hilarious! But TONS of FUN!!
