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.
