A Summer Wedding at the Shady Wagon Farm

Posted in: Wedding Catering Raleigh

We love catering wedding receptions. It’s an honor for us to be a part of such an important celebration of life and love, and it is something we take very seriously. When couples decide to partner with Catering by Design, we want them to know that we’re going to give 110% effort to ensure that they’re getting the best service and food.

The Barn at Shady Wagon Farm is a one-of-a-kind wedding venue that sits on 22 acres in New Hill, NC. It combines the elegance of a traditional wedding venue with the rustic appeal of a farm barn, pond, pavilion and an old country store! You’ll find a dazzling chandelier hanging in the main reception area and the entire space is beautifully decorated. At night, hundreds of fairy lights provide a magical touch. We recently catered a beautiful summer wedding at Shady Wagon Farm and wanted to share some of the highlights. We’d also like to thank Tricia and Chris for allowing us to serve their family and friends on their wedding day and we wish them a lifetime of happiness. If you’re looking for the best wedding caterers Raleigh NC has to offer, be sure to call Catering by Design. You’ll love our food, flavors, and free menu tastings.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp was also on the menu and was hit with all the guests. The sweetness of the shrimp and the savoriness of the bacon was a match made in heaven.
