Mi Piace Wedding Fare

Nate, Andreas's former boss who's currently stationed in Iraq, came back to Moldova in November to marry his sweetheart Vera.  The wedding was beautiful and Mi Piace did a very good job of decorating.  You can see the food in these photos.  If anything, the photos don't show how much food there actually -was-.  Because we were sitting with the groom's parents, our food was served on individual plates.  Each item has some kind of significance in local culture.  For example, the sweet table as you come in is so the marriage starts out as sweet as possible and stays that way.  We left after one, when the wedding was beginning to wind down.  It was a honor to be invited and a pleasure to meet Nate's parents.
