Looking for a Caterer? Start Here!


Q: Should I hire a caterer?
A: If your reception facility does not provide food, you will need to hire a caterer.

The caterer will be responsible for preparing, cooking, and serving the food. Hiring a caterer is an investment that will save you time and money. The best part is that it will allow your family to be guests at your wedding instead of cooks and wait staff!

Sample Questions to Ask Your Wedding Caterer

1.       Given the style, time, and date of my wedding, what are some menu items that you suggest? What would the cost-per-person be?

2.       Do you have any particular style of food or special menu items that you specialize in?

3.       How many other weddings will your company handle that same weekend/day/hour?

4.       Are you licensed? (this means that they have met health department standards and have liability insurance)Do you have a liquor license?

5.       How does the cost-per-person of a buffet compare to that of a sit-down dinner?

6.       Does that cost-per-person just cover the food, or are charges such as staff, rentals, and linens included?

7.       What service costs are included and what costs are additional? Are set-up and clean-up included? How much is overtime if the reception runs long? Are gratuities included?

8.       Do you provide linens, glasses, plates, silverware, tables, chairs, serving pieces, and decorative flowers for trays? Would it cost less if I handled any or all of that myself?

There are several other very important questions that you will need answered before making an informed decision. You will also need to make sure that your contract covers everything discussed by you and the caterer.

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!




Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.
