Tuscany Meets the South

Saturday, February 25, 2012 Share

From the moment I met with Arielle & Brian, I knew their event would be beyond perfect! They are a wonderful couple who selected the Lace House, a venue rich in antebellum history, for celebrating their wedding day. They worked with Grant at Something Special Florist to create their awesome floral centerpieces, and I helped them select the perfect linens, napkins and chargers to complete the overall design.

Since Arielle wanted to bring a Tuscany feel to this event, Capital City Catering created a menu around that theme, which included some of the couple’s favorite Italian dishes, as well as, some of their favorite Southern dishes. It was a fun menu that was enjoyed by all; however, I must say that one of the most popular items was the Coffee Encrusted Beef Tenderloin!

It was truly an honor and pleasure working with Arielle, Brian and their family!

quote mark leftLee Anne,
   I wanted to thank you for the beautiful presentation of your delicious food at the reception.  I received so many compliments on how great the food was. Your creative input with our ideas and Melanie's ideas made a perfect collaboration that made for an unforgetable reception.  I think people who try to micromanage and not trust the professionals to do what they know best, do not get the best outcome. Kimberly, Josh and I trusted you and Melanie and it paid off big time. Thank you for your patience, recommendations and help to get the most out of my budget.
We would enthusiatically recommend Capital City Catering for any event. quote mark right
