Wedding Redo

Was your dinner served buffet-style or sit down and why did you choose to do it that way?

We decided to go with passed hors doeuvres, a plated first course and then stations for the main course.



The hors doeuvres we chose were grilled baby lamb chops with chipotle aioli, mini kobe beef burgers with caramelized onions, corn and crab pudding, rosemary skewered scallops, and shrimp with marscarpone polenta and pancetta crust.

Our plated salad course included boston bibb lettuce salad with bulls blood microgreens, maytag blue cheese triangle, citrus and champagne dressing accompanied by shots of vidalia onion soup, consomme, and butternet squash soup.



Our stations served Maryland style crab cakes with different sauces such as mango chutney, fennel slaw, grain mustard sauce and roasted red pepper tapenade. Additionally, we had a carving station with carved beef strip loin with mushroom etoufee (SO GOOD). Our last station was a sweet pea and saffron risotto station (they made it right in front of you). Our side dishes were whipped sweet potatoes, griddled potato cakes, and grilled vegetables.



The food was TO DIE FOR. I would do anything to have that food again tonight (and every night).



Our wedding cake was a total cheat. We bought it at Costco and cut it in the back. It was vanilla cake with cheesecake frosting.



Did you hire a coordinator to work with you throughout the weekend?

We did hire a day of coordinator, simply to help us with the church portion of the ceremony. She really helped keep things organized and she helped to keep my mom sane on the day of the wedding. I didn't want/need a wedding coordinator to help with any more than the day of simply because I knew what I wanted and didn't need much help choosing ideas/designs/etc.

I love the food you had and the idea of a sitted first course and a station dinner. I will keep it in mind when that day comes for me.
