Summer 2011 Weddings
July 29, 2011
We wanted to share photos of recent summer weddings in the ballroom…enjoy!
On Friday, May 27, after a destination wedding in Jamaica, Michele & Steve celebrated with an intimate group of 50. Guests feasted on a delicious buffet of slow roasted prime rib, chicken francaise, herb encrusted pork tenderloin, farfalle simpatico, oven roasted potatoes, green bean almandine and garden salad.
Michele & Steve love Stock’s Bakery (who doesn’t!), and brought in their own wedding cake. We set up a huge chocolate fountain, surrounded by strawberries, bananas, pretzel rods, animal crackers, marshmallows and pound cake. Yum!
On June 10, 2011, Diana and Bobby were married at St. Albert the Great in Huntingdon Valley. They then hosted their reception with us in Maggio’s Ballroom. Our tables were covered in beautiful rich colored purple overlays, with lilac napkins. We accented our candle centerpieces with ivory rose petals. Diana and Bobby used Confection Perfection Bakery for their beautiful wedding cake, and Maggio’s set up a lavish sweet table with creme puffs, eclairs, french sticks, fruit danish, chocolate chunk brownies, home baked cookies, petite fours, tiramisu (the bride’s favorite!), and chocolate covered strawberries, hand-dipped by yours truly 🙂
The next night, June 11, Justina and Paul celebrated their wedding with us. An evening reception accented with hundreds of peacock feathers and a specialty drink whipped up by our fabulous bartenders, they danced the night away!!
On Saturday, June 18th, Andrew & Luba’s wedding reception took place at 6:00 pm. Guests chose between; Center cut, Char Grilled Filet Mignon with bearnaise sauce, and Pan Roasted Chicken in a brandy-mustard cream reduction. Both dishes were served with Oven Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes and Green Bean Almandine. Confection Perfection made the wedding cake, and entertainment was provided by Marlin the DJ.
July 16, 2011. Dan & Michelle, a beautiful couple with a love for milkshakes, celebrated their marriage. The room was decorated in chocolate brown and turquoise colors, with chocolate dipped pretzels above each guest’s napkin for favors. The bride made all of the bouquets and boutonnieres. During cocktail hour, our staff butlered scallops wrapped in bacon, beef sliders, and mushrooms stuffed with parmesan and spinach; while a mashed potato bar surrounded by wild mushrooms, crumbled bacon, broccoli spears, aged cheddar cheese, and sour cream with chives allowed guests to eat a heartier appetizer if they chose. The plated luncheon choices were Chicken Francaise and Roast Prime Rib.
For dessert, we prepared vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter ripple milkshakes and sliced Michelle & Dan’s 4 tier wedding cake. Music and Photography were provided by East Coast Entertainment as we rocked the afternoon away. Beautiful photos are below–thanks East Coast!
On Saturday July 23, at 5:00, Meg & Kevin hosted an evening reception for 130 guests. Our wonderful staff butlered Mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat, Shrimp Bruschetta, Spinach and Cheese in Phyllo, Coconut Chicken with Apricot Dip, Chicken & Vegetable Pot Stickers, and Scallops Wrapped in Bacon. Guests chose between Slow Roasted Prime Rib wtih au jus and horseradish aioli, and Pan Roasted Chicken in a brandy mustard cream reduction. A Lavish Sweet Table and the client’s wedding cake completed the evening.
More photos coming soon! And more weddings, too! Dane and Rachel will be married on Friday, August 4th; Devon & Jim will celebrate their reception on Saturday August 13th, and we have many more happy brides & grooms celebrating fall weddings.
