Wedding Reception

Here are some pics from a wedding reception I recently went to. I should have some more pictures soon. The Mathis family has such great style. I loved the bright colors.

I got to go the Emmy Governor’s Ball and it was an exciting party. I’ve never been to a party of this magnitude, there were 2,800 guests. It was at the Shrine dining hall with an art deco theme. The flowers were all white, with calla lilies, orchids, and white roses. Tony Bennett performed on the stage in the center of the room.

Menu was done by Patina
The first course is a tower of mango and Dungeness crab with tomato, cucumber and avocado served in a sweet ginger-soy reduction. The entrée is filet mignon and red wine-braised shortrib with potatoes fondant and asparagus. And, for dessert, Splichal is serving milk chocolate mousse with Champagne Gelé, berries in Dove dark chocolate cups and cherry vanilla cake.

Of course, the celebrity sightings were exciting as well. I was thrilled to see the cast of the Office. We also saw the cast of Heroes, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty, as well as Tom Selleck, Rick Fox, Jeremy Piven, Sally Field, Rebecca Romjin, and so on. No one made my heart flutter like the cast of the Office. It was nice to see them all hanging out together and we were lucky enough to get some pictures with Stanley and Phylis. Unfortunately our dove chocolate party favors were stolen from under our chair. Any ideas on who the culprit was?
