Weddings: Diamonds, Pink, and Other Girly Things

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure to go check out one of the receptions we were catering at the Noah Liff Opera Center in Nashville. It was a very beautiful wedding, filled with many elaborate details for the event’s execution. For this reason, upon arrival, I was thrown a mop and given a job to do. So, mop in one hand, camera in the other, I sopped up the water vases’ dripping remnants as the rest of the staff hurried to set them on the tables, as well as getting all of the food out and cleaning up the room. As I glanced over to see the event planner frantically crawling on top of the grandly large head table in the center of the room to light dozens of tea lights, I knew we were behind schedule. But what’s a catering without a little drama? Though we may sometimes act like the chaos can be the end of the world, I really think it’s what we thrive on, and maybe even perform our best during it.
And as always, it came together beautifully, and the bride was thrilled with everything, which makes it all worth it!
While the reception was only for 200 people, they treated their guests to quite the spread, as seen below.

Before the guests entered the main dining area, they experienced a cocktail hour with hors d’eouvres and live music in the adjoining room.

  1. Hey I know this blog post was written a while ago, but I think its great! I had no idea you were dealing with the top of the line weddings! I’ve only been to a handful of weddings so far in my young life, but they sure have not looked as extravagant as the pictures you showed in this post. I think this blog and and your passion for events/weddings is great! I especially like in this post how you gave a description and background of the event then gave amazing picture WITH descriptions of all of them. Brilliant! Keep up the good work.
