Chicago Modern Jewish Wedding from WASIO photography

Happy Tuesday Shoeday!

We have a great pair of studded green ones for you today.  Along with a boutique venue, an artist MOB and a joyful couple.

Today’s Real Modern Jewish Wedding was at the Allegro Hotel – a nice boutique hotel in downtown Chicago.  Scott is originally from Colorado and both he and Jenny are big football fans.  Jenny of the Colts and Scott of the Broncos. We always say the best Modern Jewish Weddings are when the bride and groom put their personality into their wedding style.  Watch for the small but, fun uses of the couple’s favorite football teams.

The competitive couple even had a bet about how many total number of photos their photographers would take during their wedding & reception.  Yanick of Wasio Photography said, “When they came to see their wedding photos, one of the first questions they had was about the number of photos.”

The Modern Jewish Wedding Details

Jenny’s mom is an artist and did a lot of decoration herself. She designed the couple’s logo and did the letterpress print programs.  She also did all the placement cards by hand.

They were placed on an imitation of the L on the Chicago subway and behind them was a big drawing of the Chicago L with Jenny & Scott.

The Ketubah was also hand painted by Jenny’s mom.  It is truly a one of a kind and show stopper ketubah.

Jenny’s bridal bouquet adorned with lockets of pictures of important people is another show stopper.  It’s all about the little touches.

This fun loving couple is about to celebrate their one year anniversary on September 28. We wish them a very Happy Anniversary.

Monday Morning Inspiration: National Guacamole Day

Yes, I do live in Texas & therefore, Guacamole is one of my major food groups!

And, therefore I have an entire day of Guacamole recipes to celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day & National Guacamole Day Tomorrow.  You can incorporate them into your Modern Jewish Wedding (or your Modern Jewish Entertaining) at anytime.

By definition it is, “A popular Mexican specialty of mashed avocado mixed with lemon or lime juice and various seasonings (usually chili powder and red pepper). Sometimes finely chopped tomato, green onion and cilantro are added.”


Serving breakfast at anytime to your weekend guests?  Breakfast tacos are a unique treat.  Tasty and easy to eat with your hands.  They also make great midnight snacks after the party ends.

That’s easy!  Chips & Guacamole a fabulous lunchtime snack make.

Because in my house The Food Network’s Alton Brown is considered a culinary god, here’s his fan favorite recipe for good ‘ole fashioned Guac.  Perfect for game day with chips or on top of your grilled burger.

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced

In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.


Speaking of a guacamole burger.  This recipe can be found on the California Avocado site.

You can follow them on Twitter for daily recipes using this Fruit (Yes, I am not rationalizing.  The avocado is a fruit.)

Don’t believe me about how wonderful & healthy the avocado dip is?  How about trusting HuffPost?

And, what would National Guacamole Day be without a margarita to pair it with?  Being from Austin, we have the perfect twist on this tequila staple.  Curra’s Grill Avocado Margarita.  The Austinist found out how they’re made.  But, we’re not spilling any secrets here–come to Austin and we’ll take you out for one!  L’Chaim!
