For cocktail hour, the guests were greeted with a Southern favorite, Fried Green Tomatoes with Roasted Sweet Pepper Aioli, along with a colorful tray of Imported and Domestic Cheeses with Assorted Gourmet Crackers garnished with Seasonal Fruits.
For dinner, the buffet started with a beautiful spring salad consisting of Crisp Romaine with Fresh Strawberries, Feta Cheese, and Walnuts Tossed in our Tangy Balsamic Basil Vinaigrette dressing.
We also served these Lightly Seasoned Green Beans, which paired wonderfully with the carving station.
One of the menu favorites was this interactive Creamy Mac and Cheese Bar. Toppings for the station included: Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Blue Cheese Crumbles, Fresh Cut Chives and Bacon Bits, Diced Smoked Ham, Fresh Green Onions, and Diced Fresh Tomatoes.
Anchoring the dinner buffet was Chef James manning the Carving Station. Guests enjoyed this tender BBQ Beef Brisket which was served with Fresh Assorted Rolls and Sweet Cornbread. For dessert, everyone enjoyed the lovely and delicious wedding cake.
