It’s Foodie Friday! If you’re looking for some places to try this weekend, here are our suggestions.
Austin – In a town that lives and dies by tortillas and salsa, it’s nice to see that some new culinary niches are trying to gain momentum. What first exploded on the east coast, sushi is gaining ground amongst couples that want to give their guests a little something different.
How Do You Roll? is a unique maki sushi restaurant that caters to each individual “roller.” It’s all about YOU there, where you get to personalize your sushi experience as much as you like. With pre-determined rolls like a 3 Alarm Roll for the super spicy lovers and locale specific concoctions like the Fruit Roll-up dessert roll made with fresh fruit, to “you call it” type of orders, you can’t go wrong at this place.
Stop by and visit our new friends at the Arbor Walk location and tell them the Wedding Guide sent you. Rob and Susan will take good care of you.
San Antonio – Although Mexican food reigns supreme in San Antonio, Italian has to be pretty high up on our short list of food favorites. And it’s always a lovely surprise when Zio’s Italian Kitchen shows up in our offices for lunch. We can smell it from a mile away as it wafts down the hallways, distracting us from the task at hand. It’s funny how Zio’s seems to make everyone in the office want to take an early lunch. I can’t imagine why?
All the traditional items are well represented on their menu, but favorites in this office have to be the heavenly stuffed pillows of pasta they call 4 Cheese Ravioli, the island inspired flavors of their Greek Pasta and their yummy brownies for dessert…mmmmm.
We love the fact that after a busy show season, our boss rewards us with this tasty treat. Thanks Bob!Tags: caterers, catering, food, foodies, Italian, Reception, rehearsal dinner, sushi

Sometimes my work is too difficult. I am forced to visit beautiful locations to scout for upcoming photo shoots, all the while wishing I had a special event coming up to book these places myself. In our last two shoots, I discovered a hidden gem in One World Theatre and a hip restaurant, Sazo’s Latin Grill. Both of these might not be the first locations to pop into a bride’s mind…so let me paint you a picture.
Austin – Want to have an Italian destination wedding, but right here at home? You might want to consider One World Theatre as the canvas on which to paint your romantic Italian dream.
I can almost hear the single guitar playing O Sole Mio in the background as the beautiful property sits atop a hillside reminiscent of a Tuscan Villa. As you wander the venue, your can just see yourself dining al fresca under a gauzy tent with twinkle lights, sipping on carafes of vino and nibbling on Italian fare. And can you believe you can have all of this happen without flying all your guests roundtrip to Italy? Us either.
San Antonio – When you think of Latin food in San Antonio, what comes to mind? Casa Rio? La Fogata? Blanco Café? Have you ever thought of Sazo’s Latin Grill? It might be time to try something different. True, not the traditional Tex-Mex fare that us locals are probably used to, but undoubtedly a menu worth trying. When you think of Sazo’s, think Latin infusion that veers towards the fine dining end of the spectrum.
Located in the Marriott Rivercenter, Sazo’s is a well-kept secret. We dare to say that it’s worth the drive downtown to taste some of their dishes. And Sazo’s is famous for handling all your rehearsal dinner needs or small wedding reception in an elegant, top-notch way. So if you’re bringing family and friends in from out of town, and want to treat them to some “Latin Cool,” head on over to Sazo’s.Tags: destination wedding, Reception, rehearsal dinner, small ceremonies, venue, wedding inspiration
