a dinner party…


anyone who knows me knows i love beautiful, delicious food. growing up in an italian family i think it came naturally…

to me, beautiful, mouth-watering food is a pretty big priority at a wedding… good food makes you feel good inside. it can make you feel loved, appreciated, and welcomed… which is exactly what you want to say to your friends and family who are guests at your wedding, right?

i’m excited to plan the menu for my wedding… and boy would i love Sun In My Belly to be involved. isn’t everything they cooked up for this dinner party just beautiful?
