Barclay Villa | November Wedding Series

Posted in: Wedding Venues

Barclay Villa is a very special venue. Some would even say that dreams are made here. The castle-like home exudes elegance both inside and out. This unique venue is the perfect setting for any event when you want to impress, or feel like royalty. One cannot really understand how special this venue is without scheduling a visit to see the natural beauty of Barclay Villa.

Barclay specializes in serving brides and grooms, but can also be transformed into a banquet or corporate meeting facility when you need to show splendor and class to impress your important clients.

We recently had the honor of catering another beautiful wedding here. It’s such a fabulous place to be in the fall. We’d like to thank Toni and Ian for letting us serve their family and friends on this beautiful day. We took some great pictures to showcase the event and highlighted a few of them here.

Inside, dinner was served buffet style featuring a Heavy Hors d’Oeuvres Buffet and a Carving Station. The wedding guests enjoyed a meal of Baby Greens with Feta Cheese and Candied Walnuts finished off with our homemade Strawberry Vinaigrette. Also on the menu for this special evening was hand cut Ahi Tuna on Wonton Chips with Wasabi Aioli, Petite Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli, Chilled Marinated Grilled Vegetables, Toasted Phyllo Cups stuffed with a salad of Grilled Shrimp, Mango and Cilantro, Crunchy Springs Rolls with Sesame Ginger Sauce for dipping, and our famous Parmesan Crusted Chicken Bites served with a Spicy Apricot Mustard Sauce.

The interactive Carving Station was manned by Chef James. He served up a beautiful Rosemary Roasted Top Round of Beef as guests kept lining up. A Balsamic Onion Marmalade, Horseradish and Whole Grain Mustard Sauce was available, along with Assorted Rolls and Butter to make Mini-Sliders.

And for dessert, we all indulged in the rich, velvety wedding cake.
