Guemes Island, Family Style Wedding on the Beach

Catering this event was the perfect way to end the 2013 wedding season. I was really looking forward to it. Guemes Island Resort is quaint, charming and located right on the beach. The groom, Alex, was so easy to work with. He knew what they wanted and left all the details to me. If anything came up, we just rolled right along with it. One over sight was ordering the dinner plates! After a quick pow pow and permission from the resort staff,  we pulled an assortment of vintage dishes from the cabins. My staff had a fun time selecting which plates to use on each table. The table decortaions had been kept to a minimum to accomadate the platters and bowls used with Family Style Service. The assorted plates added the perfect touch. Many brides would have spents months coordinating all the plates, so it was so fun to just have it organically happen. Honestly, Alex would have ok'ed paper plates if needed. 
He was just that easy to work with.

  7. All of this food is making me so hungry right now. I have the responsibility to find a good place that does corporate caterings. We have this really big event where everyone from the branches will come and enjoy a fun night with all of their employees. I was thinking of doing a good sit down dinner for them because it would mean more to have something like that instead of just snacks.
