Catering/ Menu:

  • Fresh and healthier fare. The days of endless fried hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail party are over, replaced by the 2016 wedding menu trend of fresher, healthier light bites wedding-favorite classic shrimp cocktail that leave guests feeling refreshed and prevent greasy fingers and stains on clothing. Farm-to-table, local ingredients are a must for today’s weddings, and garden-fresh salads are prepared with tasty artisan cheeses as well as gourmet imported cheeses as a top wedding menu trend.
  • Tasting stations. offering guests little bites of menu items, often paired with specialty drinks, mini servings of beers and liquors like fine bourbon
  • Seasonal menu items. Fall weddings  will include more autumn-style foods and flavors, and winter weddings feature heartier fare than spring and summer’s lighter fare. Again, locally-sourced flavors like maple syrups and honeys are introduced into menus for a seasonal taste, and even the wedding cake may feature seasonal flavors as well.
