A Butterfly Garden Party

Monday, March 05, 2012 Share

Rachel was such a fun bride to work with! She had a bubbly and delightful personality which showed throughout her event. She wanted her wedding to have the feel of a fresh summer garden, and she worked with Melanie Murphy with BIO to turn 701 into just that! I loved the bright colored vases that were used with the fresh cut flowers; and well, everyone knows how I feel about butterflies! 

Since this was a summer wedding and Rachel wanted a garden feel, we created the perfect menu to fit her garden party! We kept the menu light with lots of fresh ingredients!

quote mark leftCapital City Catering could not have done a more perfect job for our daughter's wedding reception. Actually, they were more than caterers. LeeAnne helped guide me through the process, including helping with other vendors since I was not a local Mom. She worked hand in hand with our florist and the final product was beautiful, delicious and fun! I am still receiving comments on the food and the outstanding presentation, including the "special touches" for the bride and groom. They asked just the right questions to prepare wonderful dishes suited for all of our guests. The Asian bar was especially a success, as it was a totally different concept, and Capital City combined it with the "traditional" to make a perfect event! Thanks to LeeAnne and Jonathan for their wonderful combined talents during this special time for our family. quote mark right
