Ree Drummond’s daughter Alex recently got married and of course, the Pioneer Woman star has the menu on lock. As one of TV’s best home cooks, Drummond has her daughter excited for the meal ahead of her nuptials. Her daughter gave her full control over the menu choices and tastings.
While having the Pioneer Woman for a mom makes this a bit of a no-brainer, planning the meal for a wedding can be a huge task. Prior to the wedding, during a Q&A on Instagram, Alex spilled all the details. “My mom has kind of been the mastermind behind the wedding menu honestly.” While that seems like an exaggeration, it isn’t.
During the live stream, Alex emphasized how much work her mom did to prepare the meal. “I haven’t even tasted the food. My mom tasted it all for us.” The Pioneer Woman Mercantile catered the event and Ree took total control of the food. For Alex, she chose her mom because she, “loves food more than anyone.” That love is always on display on the Pioneer Woman show.
Since the wedding took place on the family’s Oklahoma ranch, the main course is obvious, but oh so delicious. Guests enjoyed quite the meal at the wedding. The main course was made up of beef tenderloin filet served with charred peppers and asparagus. Alongside that, Drummond served up mashed potatoes and other side dishes. The ultimate side dish had to be the seven cheese mac and cheese.
‘Pioneer Woman’ Didn’t Bake the Cakes
While the Pioneer Woman served up the tenderloin for the main course, there was a lot more food available. The event also featured a snack bar. Guests were able to make their own tacos at the late-night snack bar. The groom, Mauricio Scott asked for just one thing to be available as far as food goes. Those sweet, doughy treats known as churros! Scott was also treated to a groom’s cake.
Alex trusted her mother to handle the dinner, however, she was a little pickier about her cake choices. Two cakes were ordered from Amy Cakes in Oklahoma City. The cakes included the groom’s cake mentioned above. That cake was done in the shape of a football jersey and was made of chocolate cake.
For the main dessert, Alex was treated to a traditional wedding cake. The cake featured white icing and floral decoration throughout. The cake had layers of vanilla and strawberry split half and half. The wedding sounds like it was quite the event. It must have been a joy to work so closely on Alex’s wedding. Imagine how much a privately catered wedding courtesy of the Pioneer Woman could cost for someone that isn’t her child? What a special event.
