Creating a Culinary Journey for your Wedding Reception.
"There is no love sincerer than the love of food." George Bernard Shaw
There is something to be said for southern hospitality and it doesn’t solely pertain to a physical location—it can be as simple as taking a warm and welcoming approach to the food that you want to serve at your wedding. Couples are no longer thinking about seven-course meals as much as they are about sustaining their guests throughout the entire night with a myriad of hors d’oeuvres, raw bars, specialty stations, petit-sized entrées, dessert tables and late night snacks. You see, it is more about creating a culinary journey that will take your guests from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. without reprieve, and that will also be conducive for anything from a more casual lounge-style reception to something more formal or sit-down in nature.
Whether you are working with a venue’s on-site catering team like the esteemed Mandarin Oriental Miami or hiring a caterer for an off-site wedding like Atlanta’s acclaimed trio—Sun in my Belly Catering + Event Design, A Legendary Event, or Bold American Catering—your menu should be customizable and your options endless. Remember that while this is a wedding (which evokes certain expectations), the bottom line is to celebrate love with good food, good wine and good friends.
