Marcus and I got married in June. It's taken me a while to go through the photos, and I wanted to do that before I told you about our catering company. Everyone says that no one remembers food at weddings, except to say that most of it is bad and some of it is inedible. I didn't want that to be the case for our wedding. Um, I'm a food blogger. That would be a crisis.
We wanted delicious, seasonal food that would be a treat for our friends and family. We tested quite a few catering companies. Most fell in the bad wedding food category: gluey potatoes, rubber chicken, sickly sweet salmon, and gray tuna that would make the likes of Eric Ripert gasp.
We finally found Star Catering through the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, owners of some of our favorite restaurants: Birch and Barley, Churchkey, Rustico, the Evening Star, and Planet Wine. We decided on Star Catering because of our tasting. We went on a Friday night. It was just the two of us, a chef, a manager, and a hostess. They served us an amazing dinner with wine, and instead of telling us about them, they asked lots of questions about us. And previous to meeting us, they did their homework and checked out our venue, Cabell's Mill in Centreville, Virginia. I'm surprised they didn't offer to rub my back, the service was that good. Based on the deliciousness of the food and the level of service, we were sold.
