Our wedding catering is as personalized to you – the stars of the show – as possible. With that in mind, we consult you on your preferences before putting a menu together. Your day: your food!

A typical buffet price will depend on the number of hot entrees, the number of different salad sides, and the additional potatoes / homemade bread options that you go for. Example menus and prices will be posted shortly.
