Thanksgiving week seemed like the perfect chance to highlight one of the most important – yet oft-overlooked – elements of any wedding or party: the food! Earlier this year, the talented team at RoomForty (“a restaurant without walls” as they call themselves) served up a ten-course tasting experience for some of LA’s wedding industry, to prove that there’s no reason wedding food has to be mediocre…

I just love how dramatic this “tray” is – as Steve Fortunato at RoomForty explained to me, serving an incredible meal isn’t just about preparing delicious food, but also about creating a memorable experience. What could be more important for your wedding?

Guests went home with the fixin’s for a “Salad for Two.”


Big thanks to Steve Fortunato and photographer Ryan Garvin for sharing this yummy event with us – learn more about this “Edible Audit” over on the RoomForty blog. Also, you can view the entire menu right here.
