Our wedding ceremony and reception were both magical and full of love.
But there was a whole different kind of love on the menu that night as well.
Get ready, because the third and final installment of our wedding series is the food – at Tru restaurant in Chicago.
One of the biggest passions of Tyler and I have always had between us is food. Food is so much more than just nourishment – when it works in harmony, it is a near transcendent experience. When you combine certain parts of this earth in certain ways, it makes magic – in the Pagan tradition of our wedding, literally.
For our entire relationship, Tyler and I have bonded over food and cooking. We are always checking out the menus of the world’s best restaurants, and dreaming of maybe one day. But for our wedding, we decided that one day would be our day.
The entire staff at Tru was amazing. We had told Chef Martin that we wanted to use local, seasonal ingredients as much as possible, and incorporate lots of the magical herbs, spices and ingredients from Pagan lore. What Chef came up with blew us away.
The food and service were perfection. I wanted to give a big old thank you to Amy and Chef Martin at Tru, and all of the staff that helped make our wedding day more than we ever dreamed. And reader friends, if you’re ever in Chicago, make sure to make a reservation.
