Last week we had the extreme pleasure of being given the opportunity to provide our services for a couple getting married in Manhattan, Kansas on August 3rd.
There are several great things about being awarded this job:
*the reception will be held at the Kansas State University Alumni Center, my alma mater
*we are being given the opportunity to work with a great family
*we have established a relationship with a wedding coordinator that we have not had the opportunity to cater for in the past
*we will have the opportunity to use our two mobile kitchens
*this will be a “magazine wedding”
*the food will be outstanding
The couple tasted a selection of over 20 items, here a few of the chosen items:
signiture drinks: dirty martinis and frozen margarita machines
Appetizer Stations and passed appetizers to include family favorites:
ice sculptures overflowing with jumbo shrimp cocktail, tangy cocktail sauce, lemon wedges
