The Style

We offer different culinary flair to all of our dishes, from Asian to French, East coast to West coast. Anything you need, we will make it delicious for you!

Tasty Tips

What is your signature dish?  Rococo Crabcake!

What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? It’s important to know what style you are looking for  when it comes to your wedding. Are you looking for traditional and elegant, or would you like to have a fun party where your families and friends mingle and get to know each other? No matter what, catering is the perfect accompaniment to the event. If you have nothing else to talk about, you will talk about the food!

Do you offer menu tastings? Absolutely! I love doing tastings for two reasons – I get to showcase some of our delicious appetizers or entrees, and I get to meet the bride in person. It’s much easier to discuss your wedding face-to-face and get to know the bride and her ideas, than it is just to talk over the phone or email.

Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? We do have a catering menu, but we love doing custom menus. If we have a bride on a budget, we can offer custom menus to best fit that vision at what’s affordable to them and what they expect.

What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms?  Deep breath… I know there is a lot to planning a wedding, but you can have a lot of fun doing it too! Get to know your vendors, check in with them regularly, and if anyone offers you help, you take it!

From the planner, Melissa King of Paper Chandelier Events: “My inspiration for the Camille settee started by thinking about what would most complement it. The settee is a light color so I wanted to put it against a dark but beautiful background that would show the contrast. I aimed for a lot of round shapes: in the curves of the settee, in the fullness of the flowers on the wallpaper and in the bouquet, and even the round curves of the dress, all tie in together. I wanted this shoot to be about a bride who has just gotten ready on her wedding day and is waiting in those still moments before she walks down the aisle. The contemplation, the anticipation and the elegance she feels I hope is apparent.”
