A visit to our home...

As we are well into our booking Season for 2016,  and even 2017,  (we do have some 2015 dates available still- please contact us for availability)- we want to extend this invitation to those who want to sample their wedding meal, either before booking or after.  When you come out to our farm, we will prepare your wedding meal for you to both enjoy as well as review the presentation. This is not just a small sample, but an entire meal we will enjoy together. We love when our Couples do this- not only do we get to meet and go over the many details pertaining to your day, but we get to talk "Weddings" :)
The cost is $30.00 per person if you have not booked our services.  If you have booked our services, or do so when you come out, there is no charge for this meal.

We look forward to meeting with many of you!

SHC first wedding of 2015!...

     Wedding Season has begun again! 

 We just enjoyed the exciting time of working together with family and friends, as we put together a delicious Entree {and partial dessert} for over 190 guests.

This was accomplished with only 2 ovens, and major planning and electric roasters!
We served our homemade Buckingham Shortbread cookies with Royal Icing made beautiful with blue to match the wedding party. My Mom suggested we call these cookies "Dresden."
*These photos were taken by my good friend's 16 year old son, Caleb.  A definite photographer in process!

This beautiful Bride and Groom were married at Asbury Free Methodist Church, with the reception being held at Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church in Perth, Ontario.

I just received these photos from this stunning Bride!  They choose to have their guests go first, with the Bride and Groom going last..what a beautiful and sweet sentiment.

We know this Couple personally, and were blessed to know many of the guests in attendance.  What a joy to be able to serve many of our friends! It was in many ways a group affair- as many friends and family members helped bring everything together.  Once the Bride and Groom had said farewell, friends and family pulled together to make sure everything was properly taken down, put away and tidied up for the Church service the next morning. It was a lovely gathering- and we were thankful to have shared our part in the evening. Our thanks go out to the many volunteers that helped throughout the evening to make everyone's job go a little smoother.

For dinner we served:

Chicken Divan
Garlic & rosemary baby potatoes
Green beans with Sauteed peppers and shallots
Garlic Sauce
Fresh homemade Tabouli
SHC Maple Balsamic salad
Caesar Salad
Rolls & Buns
Dills & Olives

This was a lovely meal, both in taste as well as presentation. The following photos show the wedding cakes provided through a friend of the family.

A lovely fruit-topped cheesecake.
A delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

Blessings on your Marriage Dave and Rebekah, It was a privilege working with you!

Professional food pictures...

What a treat it is to receive photos from one of the Wedding Photographers!  So often we try to get out to take "food pictures", but the same moment that the food is ready, our Customers are also ready!
We dislike the idea of bringing out our food steaming hot, guests coming to the line as we say "Wait!" and quickly proceed to snap some pictures. All Credit to these lovely photographs go to Melinda Carriere from Studio Booth Photography. 
 Contact her at :613-217-9314

These Photos were from September of 2014, while we were at Maplehurst Manor. We served the meal outdoors under a covered tent. While the new owners of Maplehurst will now provide their own catering, it was a privilege to have been there three times this last wedding season.
Our becoming-famous Signature SHC Maple Balsamic Salad

Down the buffet line you see: Prime Rib, Chicken Divan, Creamy garlic mashed potatoes, Orange glazed baby carrots, rolls and butter, and Dills and olives & our freshly prepared salad.  This is one of our most popular meal combinations when a kitchen is available to us.

Thank you Melinda for sharing these with us. 

Until Next time, happy wedding planning!
