Hello gorgeous venue. This is Malibu Rocky Oaks where we have cooked at for several weddings and yes, Hangover 3 was filmed here I have been told. Up high in the rolling hills of Malibu, with unadulterated views, it's truly breathtaking.
This is a heliopad on site where our friends and the hosts of this event, Casa de Perrin set up a bar for this event with Revelry Event Designers to mimic the sunset with hues of pink, gold, and amber glassware, and it is here where appetizers were served.
Among the six appetizers, this was a Trout Terrine with a bright pink Beet Pickled Quail Egg.
Flowers were by Celio Design, pictured here beside our Clam Fritters with Saffron Bur Blanc and Cook Pigs Bacon.
Dominique Pruitt performed during cocktail hour where these Potato Croquettes with Local Crab Salad and Harissa Aioli were passed around.
As one would expect with Casa de Perrin, the table design was a gorgeous echo of the landscape.
For the Amuse-Bouche we served a Wild Venison Tenderloin with Crispy Kale, Homegrown Blueberries, and Celery Root Puree.
Pretty place cards were designed by Anne Robin Calligraphy who also designed labels for our own House Wine served at this dinner. We made a Passionfruit Vinaigrette from the bounty of passion fruits overflowing in our garden for the salad course featured here.
And for the last course we served Jidori Chicken Roulade with Pole Beans, Pepper Romesco, and Roasted Carrots.
