What a lovely idea! This beautiful Couple was getting married the next day, but wanted to have their wedding rehearsal catered. All of their out of town guests, closest friends and family members- as well as the wedding party were invited. When the rehearsal was completed at the Church, all headed here to enjoy appetizers, then their meal- in a leisurely fashion beside the pool. The wedding was scheduled for the next day, with the wedding guests invited to a restaurant in Downtown Ottawa to celebrate the Couple's official wedding day. (I apologize for the quality of these photos. I took them on my phone when we realized we had forgotten the camera at home!)
For Dinner, the couple opted to have us serve Marinated meat and vegetable skewers. We served:
Steak and vegetable skewers
Chicken and vegetable skewers
Shrimp and vegetable skewers
Roasted garlic potatoes
Maple balsamic salad
Tri-color pasta salad
Homemade garlic sauce
Rolls & butter
Dills & Olives
The Parents of the Bride offered their beautifully landscaped grounds to hold this special dinner party.
We served appetizers beside the pool (And let me tell you, during the hotter parts of the afternoon- before the guests arrived, I had to remind my staff that it would NOT be professional if the hosts came back to find our staff dripping wet!!)
For appetizers, we served a lovely selection of fresh vegetables with delicious homemade dipping sauce, Hummus and Naan Bread, Assorted crackers- including sweet potato gluten free (a huge hit!)
Our famous spinach and cheese squares, Pumpernickel bread with spinach dip, and a variety of cheese and grapes.
This was light and welcomed in the hot afternoon.
We are asked to cater many different events. This was the first time we had been asked to cater a wedding rehearsal. It was a delightful time to be there- the night before the wedding. Definitely a different perspective of the Bride.
We are about to begin a long line of weddings- a few places we will be at in the near future include:
Royal Kingston Curling club
Maplehurst Manor (twice)
Market Hall Performing Arts Center
Madoc Lions Hall
Several backyards- one being the home of an interior decorator- I can't wait!
