Amanda & Matthew Tie The Knot!

At Home Celebration


Many friends have expressed their regret at not being able to get away and this will be a wonderful chance to share our joy with them.

We are going to have a delicious family style Latin themed meal at a beautiful restaurant in Chicago. We are excited to celebrate over a wonderful meal and Costa Rican beers.

Guacamole with tortilla and taro chips

Shrimp Adobado
Boniato and Plantain Croquetas
Smoked Chicken Empanadas

Seafood Paella
Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak
Chicken Mole Verde
Roasted Suckling Pig "Cubano"

Latin Dessert Platter

We are doing a consumption bar but hope our guests will enjoy the Costa Rican beer as well as wine and tropical cocktails.


Each guest will have a sweet treat to take home with them.
We are getting cupcakes from Sprinkles.
We are ordering 4 flavors and placing 2 of each at a table.

Bourbon Vanilla cake/Coconut Cream Cheese icing
They'll get coconut flakes and bow tie decorations.

Banana Dark Chocolate:
Fresh Banana cake/Bittersweet Chocolate icing
They'll have little palm tree decorations

Summer Cherry:
Fresh Cherry cake/Cherry icing
I'm excited because Sprinkles only makes these for about 2 weeks each summer and our dinner feel right in the middle. They'll get  red hearts as their decorations.

Chocolate Marshmallow:
Belgian Dark Chocolate cake/Marshmallow cream/Chocolate ganache
They get little diamond rings on top.
