A Labor "Day" of Love

Friday, March 09, 2012 Share

Christina & James had so many wonderful ideas for their wedding and reception! They set their wedding date for Labor Day weekend, so they definitely wanted to incorporate some fun and festive menu items. We helped them select a simple but exciting menu for the cocktail hour, and then we added some traditional “summer barbeque” items to  create a nice active station dinner. We ended the evening with some sweet summer favorites!

This beautiful couple worked with Melanie Murphy with BIO. Together with Melanie’s amazing talent and the unique ideas of the couple, they created an elegant and beautiful event. It was an amazing way to officially end the summer!

quote mark leftHi LeeAnne,
Thank you for the sweet note. I want to tell you what a great job you guys did.   The food was delicious....we devoured our food you packed for us. I have had so many compliments from others as well on how delicious everything was. One comment was how nice it was that at the brisket station, they made the sandwich for them where normally people have to put their plate down and assemble themselves....that is a nice touch! I will highly recommend you to anyone who asks.   Hopefully, our paths will cross again, but in the meantime, we wish you all the best with business. Take care. quote mark right
