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!

I just wanted to follow up on the wedding and Capital City's part in it. From the moment that Megan spoke with you on the phone she knew that she wanted you to cater the wedding. Your warm personality and helpful hints were a great help to us in the planning stages. We could not have done it without you! I have attached a photo of the buffet table that Dave Gilbert took; we think that the presentation was just perfect. It was just what we had in mind. The food was great and we received several compliments on it. Numerous people told us how good the food was. The bar service was great and we really appreciate you bringing the bar in for a trial run. We really couldn't have been more pleased with the evening. A wonderful time was had by all! Thanks again. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. quote mark right
