Jen Sofio's wedding

I started out Saturday morning with a lesson from Patrick. Kylie was tired, but I'll take that any day over wild. We then went out for a quick shopping trip to Macy's to get Chad something to wear for Jen Sofia's wedding. A group of us met at Kim's to caravan out to Villa Amodei, a most gorgeous place for a wedding! It was a warm, charming and stunningly beautiful villa in Somis. The experience was unforgettable. The property was very private with no visible neighbor or blemish. There was so much joy and celebration in the air. It takes you away. The flowers were breathtaking. Far from the business-like feel of a hotel or country club. It was a very romantic evening as the the sun set over the orange groves.
The food was out of this world delicious....During the cocktail hour I only had a couple of the appetizers, but the Blue Crab Cake topped with Mango Salsa was yummy and so was the Tomato Comfit with Fresh Mozzarella and Basil on crostinis. We then were seated and on each of the long tables were Assorted Bruchetta Italian Antipasto Assortment of cheeses, Italian ham, salami, grilled vegetables. Then there was a course of pasta followed by the main course of Beef Wellington (Beef tenderloin baked in a puff pastry with wild mushrooms & foie gras served with a port wine sauce) and Braised Baby Carrots French Green Beans with Shallot Butter. There was also a chicken entre which I did not try.
