As guests arrived for the ceremony, they entered down the flowered lined sidewalk, to where they were greeted with a glass of sangria, lemonade, or a bottle of beer to cool them off from the hot June day. Guests also enjoyed taking their Polaroid pictures for Sarah and Doug’s guest book as they waited for the ceremony to begin.
During the cocktail hour the guests nibbled on the delicious passed items that was provided by Catering by Design.
Sarah and Doug wanted a station style reception where their guests were moving and mingling. We set up three different stations with small plates- the first was a Noodle Station, which was served in “To Go” containers to keep with the theme and the idea of people not sitting down and keep mixing and mingling. The 2nd station was a Meat and Potato Station- here we served marinated sirloin of beef with a Mashed Potato Martini Bar, where guests could put on all their toppings and walk around eating their potatoes in their martini glass.
The third station, which was also a hit, was the Crab Cake Station- Jasmine Thai Crab Cakes served over a cool Asian slaw– yummy!
For Dessert, Lauren with Catering By Design
came up with the idea of serving the cake in a martini glass with ice cream! We incorporated this idea into a sundae bar- guests were able to pick their toppings for their cake and ice cream- everything from chocolate sprinkles, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Whipped Cream, and M&M’s. Great idea, Lauren! The guests loved it!!!
Hope you enjoyed the photos! Congrats once again to Sarah and Doug!!
