Anne and Jon were married on the anniversary of their first date, July 9th. Both Anne and Jon are Hillsborough County Firefighters, they chose Nova 535 because of the unique industrial architecture and urban atmosphere. The Montgomery wedding was filled with green, fun and tons of love. We can reassure you that forever long memories were made that night. The stunning bride, unique venue, and modern feel made this a event we won’t forget.

Everywhere you turned there was something to love about this wedding!

Real Wedding: 1920′s Speakeasy Wedding, Powel Crosley Estate, Sarasota Catering
Posted on January 15th, 2014 - No Comments

A beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple took place at the delightful Powel Crosley Estates in Sarasota. This couple took their guest by surprise by transforming rooms and hiding sweets. This 1920′s Speakeasy wedding was one of our favorites, especially when the dessert room was reviled. Judging by the fashion, set up and theme the snazzy couple definitely did this era justice. The cocktail hour was a hit and dinner was pure success. Wedding captured by Your Story By Us.

The couple went with a plated trio entree for dinner, which is nice because as caterers, we don’t see that very often. The plated trio included: a small portion of sauteed beef tenderloin tips, chicken rustica, pan-sauteed mahi mahi, creamy mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. Dinner was incredible and before you knew it they had a room filled with all the sweets you could imagine. After dancing guests were introduced to a late night snack that offered, Cuban sandwich “cigars” and french fries.

To me, weddings are about the moments. Its a day to call your own and Erica and Mark did just that.

Cultural beauty is the perfect description. This wedding was beyond beautiful and amazing. Lara and Mike chose to put chips and salsa on each table instead of the traditional bread and butter, but if you ask us, that’s pretty awesome. It is definitely something I would recommend to add a little twist to your wedding. The bride and groom went with a station style dinner. The three yummy stations were the Surf and Turf station (sauteed beef tips, pan-sauteed mahi mahi, creamy mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus), the Pasta Creation station (penne pasta primavera and bow-tie pasta), and last but certainly not least was the Egyptian-Mediterranean station that offered spicy marinated chicken kebobs.

“We loved the food. You know you hired a good caterer when the DJ, photographer, etc get excited because they know they will get Good Food when working your event. Everyone is talking about our mini taco macaroni & cheese lollipop appetizers. Usually I never look forward to wedding food because its usually just bad and cold. I just eat the rolls, appetizers and cake of course. Kevin did three stations for us- A middle eastern, fish & meat and pasta station. The beef tenderloin tips were excellent and could be cut with a butter knife-Yum. The pasta was hot & tasty and the felafel was like my husband likes it. It was finally wedding food I could eat and go back for seconds.
My husband is Egyptian and wanted traditional dishes. Kevin went out of his way to follow two of the family’s recipes and the dishes turned out wonderful. He even met us for a taste testing.
And let me just tell you that the service was above and beyond. The waitress for the bride and groom was extremely professional and on top of everything. As weddings go, we had some guests who were late and the staff had food waiting for them. Kevin was awesome to work with and you can tell upon meeting him that he loves what he does.”

We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Gumpert of Event Design, Marc Edwards Photographs, Connie Duglin Specialty Linens, and Hands on Sweets to create this simple and modern stylized photo shoot.  The ceremony location overlooks the lake with views of the golf course and preserve. A short distance away, guests can enjoy cocktails and appetizers at our covered, outdoor patio. Inside, our Bay Room was transformed for a small, intimate wedding reception.  We highlighted the large room with white pipe and drape, and washed the room in a beautiful purple. The table linens were Pink Champagne Lamour and napkins were a Victorian Lilac satin.  The modern feasting tables were adorned with mercury glass, gorgeous hydrangea, white and pink garden roses, and plenty of votives.
