Marc and Josée’s Wedding Dinner


Yesterday was a very important day in our family. My younger brother got married! He and his wife were inspired by my husband and my wedding and decided to go small as well. I think having a small wedding really opens up the door to a lot of possibilities. After quite a bit of research they finally decided on Blueberry Lake Resort. What a great decision too. This place was luxurious and so much fun. I could go on about the chalets and how beautiful they were, but since this is a food blog I'll stay on track and cut right to the food. My brother and my wonderful new sister-in-law sampled many dishes before making the final choice on what was going to be served. I don't have the actual dish names but the photos are enough to get your mouth watering. Everyone got to choose between two dishes. My husband and I picked different ones and then split them so we could try everything. 

We started off with an impeccable, creamy butternut squash and corn soup. I think this was my favourite dish of all it was so flavourful and yummy.


Next came an appetizer of either duck with greens and a blueberry coulis or pork over a fancy relish, greens and shaved parm. Both were insanely tender and so good.

For our mains we had a choice of roasted chicken with veggies or herb and pesto crusted veal and veggies. Both were very impressive and so juicy. The carrots were al dente and potatoes roasted and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. 

For dessert we had a fruity, cool nougat over some chopped mixed fruit. So light and refreshing. 

The entire experience was fantastic and the meal really just brought the entire day to a fabulous finish. I'm so happy for my brother and his new wife. She's a lucky girl to have my brother, but he's an even luckier man, she really is an amazing woman. I'm sure they'll live a long and very happy life together.

Congrats to your brother and sister-in-law. We just got married at the Courtyard, but the food pictures didn't turn out nearly as nice as it was pretty dark in there.

We were right next to a window and it was still daylight, which made it super easy for great shots. I had friends do their wedding party at the Courtyard. I've heard the food is fantastic.
