These beauties really have limitless possibilities in how they could be incorporated into your big day!”

Salmon in Phyllo from Gils Elegant Catering

“I think the most important thing about creating a one-of-a-kind menu is spending a little time with the client, to really understand and know what they like. I try to learn as much as possible to be able to create a menu that reminds them of those special times — full of their favorite flavors, textures, memories.”

Pan Seared Halibut from Fearing’s Restaurant at The Ritz Carlton, Dallas

“We can personalize the wedding in many ways: from creating menus that include their favorite ingredients and that have been part of their history as a couple to ensuring the colors in each and every dish match their theme and create a perfect symbiosis of the couple and every part of their menu. ”

blue fire

Five Pepper Smoked Beef Tenderloin from Blue Fire Catering

“I love the colors and flavors of spring/summer seasonal fruits and vegetables. One of my favorite dishes is to pair fresh heirloom tomatoes and watermelon with creamy burrata. I season it with the most amazing minus 8 vinegar and extra virgin olive oil to bring it all together.”

steak macklins

Herb Crusted Sirloin from Macklin’s Catering Co

“Trends I’ve been noticing are more stations and action stations. People seem to enjoy a variety of food that they can sample a little bit of each. Including themes are really fun. Dessert bites are a big hit as well… mini brownie bites, banana fosters shooters, chocolate chip cookies with milk.”

Duck Carnitas from Magdelena’s Catering

“We love when couples bring us ideas of destinations they have traveled and ask us to recreate the food! Food reflects the couple’s style and to recreate a special moment or time they celebrated is a fun challenge we get to do! We can recreate a certain food item or cuisine they had, a spice they tasted or a plate full of color that ties in somewhere they traveled to! The skies the limit and it’s really fun for us to give them that special food style for their wedding!”
