Embrace Seasonal Ingredients

Begin with Captivating Hors D’oeuvres

The first rule of great wedding food (and really all food) is seasonality. In-season vegetables and herbs are the best-tasting ingredients, which is why you will find a seasonal section on our Hors D’oeuvres menu. For your fall menu, consider choosing the Goat Cheese Croquette, Baked Brie Crostini, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Shooter, Mini Chicken Pot Pie, or the Duck Confit & Blue Corn Grits. Seasonal options like these will evoke feelings of warmth, coziness, and memories of your favorite fall days.

Elevate the Main Course

When choosing main courses, think heartier options like Braised Beef Short Ribs or the Gruyere, Arugula, & Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken Breast. Though our main courses are typically evergreen, sides like our Seasonal Vegetables will change by season. This will keep your selections delicious and fresh! 

Don’t Forget Dessert

All of our dessert options are available year-round, but when planning your fall wedding menu, consider opting for fall-esque choices like the S’Mores bar or the Pecan Pie Tartlet. These will pair perfectly with your other fall options!

Pair Signature Cocktails with Fall Favorites

To make your planning process more streamlined, consider using our sister company Squeeze Cocktails as your bar service. As a team, we can help you identify some options that will pair nicely with your menu or work to create custom drinks for a more personalized touch.

Schedule Your Tasting

Don’t forget to schedule your tasting! Make sure to schedule about 4 months ahead of your event. While you may be having a fall wedding, your tasting will be in the summer months, so keep in mind some of your seasonal choices may not be available to try. However, we will keep you informed about exactly what to expect.

Happy tasting! We can’t wait to plan your fall wedding with you.
