Pear Tree Estate | Champaign Wedding Venue Tasting Event


I had the pleasure of photographing the food for a tasting event held at Pear Tree Estate last week. I have a couple of weddings booked there for 2015 (and even one for 2016!), and was lucky enough to run into one of my couples there -- so fun! The staff there even sent me home with a goodie bag of a meal and some awesome desserts! Double win! Now, check out the photos, and I dare you not to drool on your keyboard or phone. :) Classic tomato and basil bruschetta tomato bruschetta pizza stone appetizer

Seasonal flatbread flatbread with grapes appetizer

Chicken pietro with roasted fingerling potatoes and country green beans (left); Bacon wrapped chicken with Manchego smashed potatoes (my FAVORITE!) (on the right) chicken with smashed potatoes
