Cheers to Chef Ashely Christensen & Kaitlyn Goalen on their beautiful NC garden wedding featured by Vogue ❤️

If you think cooking for your loved ones is nerve-racking, imagine cooking for a James Beard Award-winning chef and owners of Poole's Diner, Beasley's Chicken + Honey, Death & Taxes, AC Catering with Bridge Club!

Curious about what these Raleigh foodies served up at their wedding? ⬇️

“It was a combination of our favorite dishes and things that Ashley is known for, like macaroni au gratin, tomato pie, and fried soft-shell crabs,” Kait explains. “We also asked some of our good friends from restaurants in the area to do a dish—our friend Mike Lee of M Sushi in Durham, North Carolina, made the most ridiculous uni and toro hand rolls; our friend Lin Peterson of Locals Seafood shucked oysters for our raw bar. And Josh DeCarolis of Mothers & Sons did late-night spaghetti carbonara.”

YUM. Click on the blog link below to read about their NC wedding! 🌺
