Carrie & Latif’s Wedding by Patina Catering

Carrie Nagy and Latif Tayour

The new Mr & Mrs Tayour

When it comes to weddings, I truly believe it's all about the details. Details are key, and after choosing the ideal mate, comes the all important decisions of dress, location, shoes and FOOD. The bride had the dress choice covered looking absolutely glamorous and gorgeous in an Elizabeth Fillmore couture gown. The backdrop was ocean front in Malibu and who can argue with that location. The cuisine and beverages were by Patina Catering, and what a wondrous choice that ended up to be. Carrie and Latif, the bride and groom are not only my dear friends, but huge food lovers so I knew their special day would also be a delectable one.

From the cocktail hour, to the magnificent red velvet cupcake tower, to the gourmet vegan dining option, the bride and groom and all of us reveling in their splendorous day, knew they made all the right decisions. Carrie and Latif's wedding was a day full of love, impeccable views, divine company, and outstanding food and service. Although we were dining with a group close to 100, it felt as if we were in a fine-dining establishment, just full of joyous friends and loved ones. It was a truly enchanting day we will all cherish forever.

Here are some of the fine details:
