Morrill Maine Wedding | Morgan & Ben

It’s always a pleasure to help make a wedding a beautiful, seamless day but even doubly so when you do it for friends.

We’ve known Ben and Morgan for years (Ben is a talented furniture and cabinet maker with his own company based out of Searsport and Morgan works at Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast.)

Their beautiful home in Morrill was the perfect setting for this backyard wedding. We created a vegetarian focused menu for these guys, and helped work through the logistics of set up and planning.

The night finished with a bang with one of our absolute favorite bands- Soulbenders!

Stationary and passed hors d'oeuvres are both crowd pleasers. This approach also keeps the crowd flowing. ⠀

We love the Sungold Cherry Tomato detail on the escort cards! An assortment of vintage china and hand dyed runners imbued these tablescapes with a truly personal touch.⠀

Tenants Harbor Wedding | Elizabeth & John

For Elizabeth and John’s wedding, we worked with the fabulous and talented Meghan Torrieri again. Working with a planner is always welcomed (and encouraged) and without a doubt, she’s one of the best in the area!

She created a beautiful design (with the bride and groom) that included incredible lighting from Griffin and Griffin. Lighting installations framed not just the dining tent, but the dance floor and band. The attention to detail was evident everywhere- with little lounge nooks and light fixtures tucked into the landscape. We included a gallery at the bottom of this post with some of our favorite images of the design.

The overall feel for the day was colorful and welcoming- a real reflection of Elizabeth and John’s personalities!

Passed apps included Seared Maitake Mushrooms on Maine Wheat Sourdough, Arancini with Tomato Caper Relish, Lobster Tostadas, and Braised Korean Beef Short Rib Tacos!

Our Tomato Burrata Salad is a refreshing first course. It’s also delicious with jazzed up with fresh-from-the-farm peaches! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The couple decided on a family style meal that included one of our favorite (and rarely ordered) dishes- brown sugar and ancho rubbed pork tenderloin with Maine peaches, tarragon, and fennel. Yes, it really is as good as it sounds!

We finished the evening’s menu with a beautiful wedding cake and assortment of pies, as well as Elizabeth and John’s dueling ice cream choices from Round Top & Shain’s of Maine.

As we mentioned earlier, the attention to detail was superb. The lighting added serious cozy factor!

Belfast, Maine Backyard Wedding | Claire & Levi

 

We very rarely get a chance to work in our home town, so catering this wedding for Claire and Levi (who grew up in Belfast) was a real treat. The couple’s wedding reception was hosted at Levi’s family home, under a beautiful sailcloth tent. It was relaxed, yet perfectly refined and we were thrilled to be there to witness the celebration.

A refreshing, tray-passed signature drink is always a hit with guests. When it’s time to quench their thirst, we recommend two to three unique options for the cocktail hour. Claire and Levi went with Mezcal Mules and Blueberry Mojitos with Mt Gay rum.

Passed hors d'oeuvres are some of our favorite items on the menu. They’re the perfect compliment to a mocktail or cocktail during the pre-reception festivities and something everyone can look forward to.

You may already gather that we’re suckers for a well shucked oysters! Fresh from the sea, we partner with Pemqauid Oyster Company to serve these delightfully brine-y delicacies. Shucked to order by the oyster farmers themselves, you can’t get a fresher taste of the Maine coast.

Tented receptions are some of our favorites because they afford us an opportunity so see so many hidden spots around the state. Claire and Levi’s reception was held in Levi’s family’s back yard- a huge open field right in the middle of downtown Belfast that we never knew was there. The sailcloth tent added to an elegant yet laid-back atmosphere that was well suited for a family style meal. Dinner consisted of:

Grilled Flank Steak with Chimichurri

Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon with Garlic and Sesame

Roasted Butternut Squash and Rosemary Lasagna

Wild Rice Salad with Toasted Pecans, Oranges, Shallots, and Mint

Perfectly Roasted Seasonal Vegetables

ALL IN THE FAMILY

One of the elements of our business that we are the most proud of is the guidance we offer our clients when it comes to their events. While food and service make up the lion's share of what we offer, we also work closely with our clients and their planners on the rentals, set up, and timeline of the party. We go ALL IN when we are hired on for an event and are dedicated to providing whatever advice and experience we can to create a beautiful and seamless occasion that is reflective of our client's vision. The majority of couples we work with have never been married before and naturally have a lot of questions about how to structure their wedding. Maine lends itself to a slightly less formal vibe and many clients come to us with a similar vision for a "rustic yet elegant" affair. This is when we really talk up our Family Style Service. Whereas a plated dinner can feel a bit stuffy and out of place in a beautiful barn or rural setting and a buffet feels too casual for what is arguably one of the most important days in our client's lives, Family Style offers the best of both worlds. No need for RSVPS with meal choices, no need for anyone to stand in line, and we can feed a room of 200 in about 10 minutes. It also gives our servers the opportunity to treat things more like a restaurant service, checking in with tables and offering seconds to guests.  But the real benefit of Family Style is that it engages the people sitting at the table together, many of whom are usually meeting for the first time. Below are some highlights from 2015 that show how beautiful and convivial a shared meal can be.
