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 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
