The Historic Mims House | New Wedding Venue

Posted in: Catering in Raleigh NC


 
The Leslie-Alford-Mims House is a historic wedding venue, built in 1840, located in Holly Springs, North Carolina. This charming property offers brides and grooms a breathtaking experience as they walk through history during their big wedding day. Romantic and timeless, the Leslie-Alford-Mims House features a sprawling white mansion that sits on more than an acre of land. This venue is one of a kind as it combines a rich history with modern style and grace.

Priscilla and Brooke, new caretakers of the property, have really shown their expertise renovating this 175 year old property. Recently they held an open house so the public, and newly engaged couples, could see all the beautiful upgrades. Catering By Design was lucky enough to be chosen as one of their highlighted vendors for the event. We had a grand time serving the guests at the Leslie-Alford-Mims House and wanted to share a few of our favorite pictures. To see the entire gallery from this lovely open house, please visit us on Pinterest.

For the event, guests enjoyed a beautiful table of some of our favorite hors d’oeuvres. Here you’ll see the night’s lineup of Grilled Tuscan, Pita, and Focaccia Breads. These were paired with our homemade Hummus, Olivada and Tomato Basil spreads.

Here are our world famous miniature Phyllo Cups that were stuffed with shredded Chicken, Red Peppers, Red Onions, Mangos and fresh Cilantro. These little bites pack large flavors and are a huge hit wherever we go. It’s hard to not eat them all and share with the guests when I’m within 10 feet of them. Guests also enjoyed summertime lemonade and ice-cold water to cool them off on this hot June afternoon.
