Catering • Food

Catering • FoodThe food you offer will depend on the character of your wedding. It can define and reflect the event, and help make it lifetime memorable.
For example one of the favorites here is “Downright Criminal Champagne Chestnut Chicken, with mushrooms, thyme, garlic, pearl onions, and nutmeg crème fraiche, partnering in crime with three wild and crazy rices, with shallots, garlic, red peppers, fried and then simmered.”… To which Jerry Maguire responded: “You had me at Downright Criminal Champagne Chestnut!”

For example if you have a wedding with 150 people, live music, a lot of dancing and wine, destined to last late into the evening, you may want to keep the meal light and inexpensive, so your budget and guests do not keel over. The food will still be important but not a main event. On the other hand if it is an relatively intimate ceremony, the food and wine could be absolutely spectacular unforgettable art, as it will be a big part of the reception. We can help you sort those types of things out and make the best decision for your wedding.
