Stations Menu Redux

What to do when roughly half your guests enjoy a culinary adventure and the rest are mostly meat and potatoes? With guest friendliness being a number one priority, this was the dilemma Katie and Patrick had for their wedding meal. Add the fact they had their hearts set on a big “cocktail style” party, building the perfect menu would be no easy task.

So after a little tweaking and modern inspiration, Katie and Patrick decided on several dishes with classic appeal. Their eclectic menu was spread out over six different stations, each paired with the appropriate wine and culinary staff. Needless to say the menu turned out to be a huge hit!  And very reasonable at less than $130 per person!
