The menu tasting went deliciously well. I wish that I would have taken some pictures of the different foods that we tasted, because I know that some of the foodies that read my blog would have been impressed, but I was so caught up in the moment that taking pictures was the last thing on my mind. Argentines love to eat, despite having some of the thinnest people in the world. So, believe it or not, we are going to have eight courses during the reception. Yes, you read that right, eight! And an open wine and champagne bar. How any of us will be able to get out of our chair at the end of the night I am not sure?
I do have a little secret to share: my wedding cake is going to be the world’s best wedding cake ever. I decided to skip the traditional wedding cake, since I am not really a traditional kind of gal, thus we are going to have a chocolate and dulce de leche cake. I am drooling just thinking about it now. Below is how the cake will look though much bigger and decorated more nicely.
Almost every single day I get asked about “our story.” I eluded in a previous post that I want to eventually write a romantic travelogue that details Lucas and I’s extraordinary history together, so for now I hope that the following synopsis is sufficient enough until the book comes out:
Five years ago in a crowded nightclub in Buenos Aires, Argentina, an Argentine man and an American woman caught each other’s gaze. They naturally gravitated towards one another and when they were finally side by side he offered to buy her a glass of champagne. By the time they were both done with their drinks they had fallen in love. He says it was her eyes that first captured his heart and she says for her it was his smile (his sexy accent did not hurt either!).
A true modern day fairytale…

Oh my gosh, your cake sounds awesome. We went with chocolate for our wedding, but we were missing the dulce de leche. Yum!
The cake looks absolutely delicious and you have the sweetest story ever! Glad you’re sharing pieces of it with us Andi! 🙂
How romantic!! Can’t wait to see more!
There are so many bad wedding cakes, so I’m glad you’ve opted for taste over tradition. Mine was very simply decorated but people STILL rave about the cake! (and we’ve been divorced for 5 years!)
amazing amazing amazing! can’t wait to see more, read more – your big day is going to be outta this world!
question? (and you may very well answer this in your next post) – does lucas live in argentia? is it a long distance relationship?
oh my… you’re having a chocolate & dulce de leche cake? I’m so jealous! I miss alfajores so much….
I love it! So sweet and romantic! I can’t wait to hear more. Your cake sounds amazing!!
I can’t get past the cake. It reminds me of paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe. My eyes are riveted to it and I can’t imagine what it would for my taste buds if it does this for my eyes.
Love the card/invite! So cute! And dulce de leche for the cake, Yum!
SO happy for you, luv! That cake sounds absolutely gloriously decadent. 🙂 8 courses is perfect for a night of celebrating. 🙂
Oh my! Um, I know I said I couldn’t make it to the wedding but the cake is seriously calling out to me! That sounds delicious!!! It really is going to be the best wedding cake ever!
Dulce de leche cake sounds AMAZING!
Oh, Andi, I’m so happy for you. Of course we all want to know about you and Lucas! 😀 Together you are one of the most beautiful couples I’ve ever seen.
Um, I do have one question though – Maybe you’ll be going over it eventually – As far as living arrangements go, where are the new bride and groom going to be living after the wedding? Are you making the move to Buenos Aires? Or is he going to America?
By the way, your cake looks divine. Hope you’re saving me a piece! hehe
Everything looks like a fairytale!!!
mmm dulce de leche cake! Hey I just stumbled onto your blog while catching up on stumbles. We have a similar story! I grew up in the south (Cola, SC) and fell in love within a few minutes with a Tico while traveling through Costa Rica. I’m glad I found your blog, I’m going to follow along to keep up with your adventures. Congrats on the wedding, Pura vida ‘miga!

No matter how many times I read about your story, it still makes me smile every time! A love story that starts with a glass of champagne? The BEST!

You had me at “chocolate and dulce de leche cake.” How delicious! I’m planning to do chocolate with mocha cream filling.
Your story is so sweet. I know how hard it is to carry on a long-distance relationship. Congrats on sticking it out!

What a beautiful story! I too met my boyfriend traveling, though in our case he is Scottish and we met in a deserted bar in Thailand 🙂 We’re nearly two years into the long distance thing now but it ends in May and I can’t wait.
