Lots of white florals and greenery were used to create the “English-garden feel” Lacey and Andrew were aiming for on their perfect day. Bold Catering and Design crafted a timeless and romantic setting for the two to exchange vows at Bishop Station late February 2022.
For the ceremony, Bold’s team placed statement bouquets at the beginning of each aisle and lined the aisles with rose petals on either side. The light during golden hour coming through the windows at the end of the aisle made the room feel incredibly magical. Following the ceremony, the same room was transformed into the reception area for dinner and dancing. Bold also installed a simple ceiling installation with twinkle lights – and a fun touch, the lights changed with the pace of the music during the reception!
The bride’s one request was to use tables for the reception that did not require linens…and her wish was granted! The team used large, dark wood rectangular tables that were beautiful on their own. Designer, Autumn Washington says, “Candle light was the most important thing about the design for this event,” This set the stage for romantic mood lighting, perfect for dancing and intimate conversation. Smilax, anemones, pops of ivory flowers and blue sisal were used as it was a winter wedding.
Bold Catering’s passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour included deviled eggs with pimento cheese, skewered blackened shrimp cocktail, a wild mushroom tart with melted leeks and manchego cheese, short rib empanada and an artichoke, spinach and sun dried tomato-stuffed cremini mushroom. For the buffet dinner, three entrées were served – port wine braised boneless beef short ribs with buttered pan reduction, citrus glazed and smoked cedar plank salmon and South City Kitchen’s signature fried chicken with black pepper gravy. Seasonal vegetables, creamy mac and cheese and mashed sweet potatoes with bourbon candied pecans accompanied the entrées and the couple even provided a vegan entrée – the impossible burger with vegan cheese and fries. In addition to a coffee and tea station, Bold also put out the stops at the dessert table with “sweet petites” which included, tiramisu trifle, nutella pie pops and fruit tarts. The most delicious first meal as a married couple for Lacey and Andrew!
