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.
