Featured Dish

Tuna/Melon Salad: EVO marinated watermelon, yellow fin tuna, lime jelly sesame oil brittle, harris powder, pickled melon rind, a slice of cucumber topped with avocado, tomato, jalapeño and scallion

The Style

What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? Plated meals off-site are hard to create variety for guests. Buffets create more variety of selection and are often more cost effective.

Do you offer menu tastings? Yes

Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? Set menus that are all customizable to your tastes/wants/budgets

What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? This day is about you two, not the guests!  Don’t lose sight of that when planning your big day!

Featured Dish

Halibut Panzanella: Brioche encrusted halibut, slow roasted tomatoes, wilted local greens, jumbo prawn, lemon buerre blanc and an herb pistou

The Style

While I dabble in several cooking styles, my current home is in contemporary American.

Tasty Tips

What is your signature dish? Pans Seared Scallops with Roasted Mushrooms and Leaks

What advice do you have for brides who are trying to decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? When planning a budget, a lot of people don’t realize that buffets are actually more expensive because of the varying amounts of food that the chef has to put out for each guest, where when your plate is an exact portion. I like to do both, but I always suggest that a bride and groom find a chef who simply wants to build their dream menu.

Do you offer menu tastings? We do offer menu tastings.

Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? We have a catering book that has some already pre-planned items, but we mainly end up building custom menus due to the variety of foods we offer between HRG Catering, Boulevard Steakhouse and Cafe 501.

What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? Find your true love and let HRG Catering and Events build the day of your dreams.

Prepare to be blown away by this vibrant pink rooftop wedding inspiration shoot designed and styled by Alli Coleman Events! Captured beautifully by Modern Love Photography atop the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, this shoot is so full of life that we just can’t help but swoon over all the bright and vivid color, fresh flowers and amazing food featured throughout the editorial. Marianne’s Rentals provided the luxe setup, an unexpected combo with a rustic farmhouse table paired with contemporary ghost chairs. We love the blooms by Tony Foss Flowers, especially those perfect stargazer lilies that complement the model bride’s modern gown from Meg Guess Couture Bridal & Boutique! The two-tiered, patterned cake by Amy Cakes and the stationery from Loni Jane Creative are both fresh and fun, and the food from Abbey Road Catering not only looks delicious but adds to the colorful tablescape. Our bride looked beautiful thanks to the team at Blo. and jewels from BC Clark Jewelers. Keep scrolling for more cheerfully pink wedding inspiration, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

From the planner: “Since farm tables have been popular for several years, I had to think outside the box to show off the table in a new light! I used two tables and stacked them to make a square for a large head table. This specific table had height options, so I chose the tall pub height for extra interest. I wanted everything to be romantic with a contemporary touch and the rest just fell into place. The downtown skyline added necessary drama to the simple details.”

Tasty Tips

What is your signature dish? We have so many signature dishes, it is hard to limit.

What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? With large groups, we recommend multiple food stations throughout the venue: different and unique culinary experiences that help define who you are as a couple. Perhaps the cuisine tells your story, or my culinary team may just put an innovative twist on some of your favorite foods. This type of food service provides more of a 3 hour “party” atmosphere. It keeps both families interacting, keeping the cuisine fork friendly, and you are not stuck sitting with the same eight people all evening. We also incorporate tall cocktail tables and lounge furniture.

Do you offer menu tastings? Yes, absolutely. We offer an open house tasting every quarter at Coles Garden. The event is normally scheduled for the 2nd Wednesday of each quarter from 5:30 to 8:30pm, come and go, with full bar service as well. If for some reason these dates do not work for you, my culinary team will be happy to provide a private tasting.

Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? Both.

What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? Lay back and enjoy the ride and allow those you are paying to stress out for you – it’s what we do for a living.
