For my lovely friends' wedding reception, the bride ordered all vegan catered food from Pura Vida Bakery & Bystro by Chef Mayra and had customized drinks from their reception venue, Artiface Urban Lounge.
|Customized cocktail #1 for the reception- This drink goes out to the gin lovers.
|Customized cocktail #2 for the reception- An awesome "girly" drink, quite refreshing!
|Other choices of drinks to choose from
|The newlyweds :)
|Can you tell that these pastries are vegan?
|Chef Mayra preparing the cupcakes
|Kudos to the chef!
|Spreading the word
|Vegan empanandas- Tasted exactly like a real empananda (I've had many in my lifetime)... I was addicted! Inside the pastries were fake meats, potatoes, and of course other vegetables.
|If I heard correctly (hope I did), a lady who worked for Chef Mayra told me that these were Aruban style pastries with cranberry chutney (both were also addictive!).
|Vegan bean dip and organic chips
|Vegan lemon and chocolate cupcakes
Overall all the vegan foods were outstanding and delicious! I'd love to stop by Pura Vida soon because this truly was one of my most unforgettable food experience I've had.
