Wedding #17 and the Ohio Wine Festival

On Saturday, Todd & I attended our 17th wedding together (yes, 17!...and that's in just 3 years) as Todd's friend from college, Keith, got married. Todd was a groomsmen in the wedding and Keith will actually be our Best Man when we get married in 39 days! It's hard to believe that this was our last wedding to attend before our own but I'm ready for our day to finally be here.

The cake was absolutely delicious! Thank god Todd never eats his piece so I always get 2 pieces

On Sunday, Todd & I went to one of my favorite events of the summer, the Ohio Food & Wine Festival at the North Market. There were around 15 wineries represented and despite the 90 degree weather, we enjoyed tasting several wines and walking around the festival.

Lots of cooking demonstrations all weekend but we went just for the wine

This SUV was covered with wine corks....I have no idea how they did it but it looked kinda cool

The event was pretty crowded and there were lots of thirsty folks looking for some chilled wine to cool them down

Enjoying a glass or two of my own

We ended up buying 2 bottles....we actually decided this ahead of time otherwise we would have walked away with an entire case

Afterwards, we walked to Marcella's and enjoyed a fantastic dinner

An appetizer of percorino cheese, honey, apple slices, and crostini

We shared our two main dishes: chicken parmesan and a meatball with fettucine

We had a great weekend but with less than 6 weeks to go until our wedding, we really need to get down to work and finish some of the last minute details.
