Fall Wedding in Wine Country
Crave recently catered a wedding reception at the lovely Vista Hills venue set atop a hill in Dundee, OR. The weather was crisp and sunny, the guests were all smiles, the cuisine was immaculate and the service was exceptional. Guests were bussed in on big yellow school buses, arriving with big smiles on their faces and anticipation of the evening before them. They were greeted with many of our scrumptious treats such as a mini grilled cheese sandwich and demitasse of tomato bisque, a sweet potato tartlet topped with smoked chicken, a cup of lobster bisque and new potatoes stuffed with blue cheese and bacon. A decadent fruit and cheese platter donned a wine barrel during cocktail hour as guests mingled with wine and celebrated the happy couple’s nuptials.
As the sun began to set, 165 guests were seated at family-style tables to nibble, nosh and chat. Duet entrees of miso-glazed salmon with a Yuzu drizzle and boneless beef ribs were plated and served as the music chimed in the background. Platters of cupcakes satisfied the sweet tooth and provided a sugar rush just in time for dancing.
Once the party kicked it up a notch under the stars and the dance moves were exhausted, Crave provided a self-serve taco bar with fresh corn tortillas, shredded pork and chicken and fresh home-made salsas for the late-night munchies.
Each and every guest spilled back onto the school bus for a ride home with memories of laughter, sunsets, wine, friends and good food dancing within their thoughts.
