When the owner and chef behind Momofuku's sister store Milk Bar (and MasterChef judge) marries the restaurateur and co-owner of restaurant group Make It Nice (think Eleven Madison Park, The NoMad, and The NoMad Bar), it's a match made in foodie heaven. And, naturally, that calls for a wedding filled with amazing food.
Christina Tosi and Will Guidara tied the knot Saturday in a rustic, camp-themed wedding at Cedar Lakes Estate in Port Jervis, NY—but it wasn't all sunshine and cake balls.
Our lives are inevitably filled with noise -- literally and figuratively. Collectively, we've gone through joy, loss, marriage, new jobs, children, buying and selling homes, losing jobs, making friends, grief, happiness, disappointment, euphoria, divorce, bliss, exhaustion...the list of events and emotions could go on and on and on. But this moment -- this very moment -- has stopped time. All of us who love, adore, respect and admire you gather just to celebrate the simplest and most pure of all that noise: love. Being your best friend @wguidara the last 10 years has been a whirlwind -- i've seen you happy and sad, frustrated and triumphant. We've celebrated and challenged each other. We've seen each other grow in spades. But all I truly wanted for you is someone who matched you @christinatosi --your energy, your drive, your devotion, sensitivity and altruism. And wow, have you found your match and then some. May you feel this way as you do this very moment for the rest of your lives -- in spite of all the noise. I love you both so much. Congratulations @wguidara and @christinatosi #makeitnice
In fact, it wasn't sunny at all: The rain poured as the couple said "I do"—but instead of reverting to a backup rain plan, the laid-back bride and groom threw on ponchos and carried on. Their guests, including Karlie Kloss and Momofuku founder and chef David Chang, did the same, making it a day to remember. The couple posed for a "Just Married" photo after the ceremony, looking drenched but happy.
But, of course, it was the wedding food that really stood out: The groom's business partner, chef Daniel Humm, seems to have helped with the menu, which included Bo Ssam from Chang's Momofuku, asado barbecue, tomahawk steaks, lobster tails, and whole sides of salmon.
An obvious highlight was the Milk Bar wedding cake: A seven-tiered chocolate chip creation, which was dubbed the bakery's biggest ever.
And at the reception, a cute photo booth backdrop encouraged guests to take on-theme photos.
All in all, the wedding looked like a success—proof that no matter the weather, it's the details and the guests that make for an amazing day.
