Give us cake!
One of the events we both were really excited about was the cake tasting. After all, cake is the most enjoyable dessert on the planet. After several hours of searching for wedding cake designs and weighing our themes, we were able to decide on one thing: a red cake to go with our Chinese-Indian themed wedding. That was it. These days, wedding cake designers offer 10+ cake flavors and cake fillings that all sound delectable, making it difficult to decide on one particular combination. And that’s only for the interior of the cake! The most difficult decision was the actual design that represented both our styles. Siddharth’s style is all about bold and colorful designs with embellishments. I, on the other hand, look for simplicity and clean lines (very plain-jane).
Gift ideas can be found at Macy’s and Amazon, where we are registered. Both sites are searchable by either Tricia or Siddharth’s name.
UPDATE: We now have a hotel block available for making reservations at the Hilton. Please call the number below or 1-800-HILTONS and mention that you are coming for the Lin/Pathi wedding to book your room at a discount rate. See you soon!
Here is the location and hotel information for our wedding:
September 20th, 2014
120 Wood Avenue South
Iselin NJ 08830
Newark is the closest airport, and shuttles and trains are available for transport (it is very short, about 10-15 minutes from the airport to the hotel).
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
It’s official. On September 20, 2014, the World Tasters will say their vows and tie the knot!
I’m sure you have noticed that this site has been totally dead for a LONG time now – our apologies! In the last year, I have started work after finishing my PhD at Cornell, and we have been so busy with commuting that worldtasters.net got pushed to the back burner. Well, no more! As of today, worldtasters.net is the official wedding site of Siddharth and Tricia. All of the relevant wedding information can be found here for our guests. We hope to share some of our food-related wedding experiences (cake tasting anyone?) with you, in addition to providing our guests with details on our ceremony and reception. As we figure things out, we will add links below, so please check back for updates. We promise that once the wedding is over, we’ll be back to providing regular World Taster content!
