|Few engagement parties leave us salivating and hungry. This one definitely did. But we didn’t expect any less from Wheremyfoodat bloggers, Kim and Denver.
They met back in school in Dubai but it wasn’t until college when they started connecting through BBM (that’s Blackberry Messenger for those of you who belong to the iPhone generation). And as is the foundation of a good relationship, they developed a friendship and eventually became best friends, all because of their common love for food. 5 years later, they finally decided to tie the knot starting with the perfect proposal in Paris which you can read about from Kim’s POV here.
We have then had the pleasure of covering their engagement party in Dubai and soon their wedding in October! Their engagement party was rustic and classy and was at the viewing deck at The Palace Hotel in Downtown Burj Khalifa. It was an intimate, urban garden gathering with 90 guests with lots of greenery and candles with a background of the Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa. Firenze Flora helped turn the venue into a garden with lots of eucalyptus leaves.
Of course what’s a food blogger’s party without good food? For their wedding cake, Kim commissioned The Palace for a unique “wooden-looking” cake. And a candy bar with goodies from Chateau Blanc, Bakemart Gourmet and Poparazzi Gourmet Popcorn added to the charm of the entire party.
