Ceres Bistro - Une Expérience Gastronomique!

We had the pleasure of dining at Ceres Bistro in the Beechwood Hotel (Worcester) last night for Vic's birthday (we won't say just 'which' birthday that is).  We already knew we liked the Beechwood since we've photographed many weddings there and find it to be a terrific place for beautiful wedding shots.  What we didn't know is how delicious and appetizing the bistro's edible creations really are!

Vic ordered the Salmon Oscar, topped with bits of fresh crab meat and a delectable Béarnaise sauce.  The crisp yet tender julienned vegetables finished off the meal's presentation and every bite was savored and appreciated to its fullest!  Here is a photo of the 'before' and 'after' ... need I say more?!

Chris ordered the Marinated Filet of Lamb, medium rare, which was accompanied by a sweet potato purée, and a roasted grape tomato and spinach salad.   Mmmmmm.

So folks, all we can tell you is if you eat at Ceres, it's not just fine food, it's more of a food 'experience'!  Our kudos to the chef!

Melissa & James -- June 4, 2011

 The story behind Saturday's wedding assignment for us is that Melissa is Chris' favorite banker!  He's been a customer of hers for years and when Melissa began her search for a wedding photographer she remembered Chris and sought us out.

Melissa and Jim were junior-high school sweethearts and boy, does their love shine!  Melissa and Jim "took the plunge" with a perfectly planned affair at the Spencer Country Inn, and wow, did they look amazing.  The outdoor ceremony took place in front of the gazebo, with a brisk wind blowing, but hey, it's a lot better than rain! 

The bridesmaids were dressed in a deep burgundy, and the groomsmen looked really sharp in solid black tuxedos with red rose boutonnieres.  The gorgeous coordinating bouquets were provided by Holmes-Shusas Florists.  There are so many photos to go through and prepare for print, but here are just a few that we think demonstrate the joy of the day!

Thanks Mel and Jim for the privilege of photographing this most important day in your lives!
