Our Los Angeles wedding catering team was featured in another beautiful Los Angeles wedding at The Smog Shoppe, and Style Me Pretty has all the details!
“We started off with the obvious and most important element for us – the food and the drinks. When we met with Eco Caters that seemed to really help bring it all together in a sensible manner… in fact it really made me realize not only what “foodies” we are, but how particular we are in taste! We ended up designing our menu with the help of Eco adding nuances like an oyster bar during our cocktail hour and tray passed desserts! At Eco we were drawn to their food culture – sourcing all their fruits and vegetables from the local farmers markets, something we frequent on almost a weekly basis as well!” ~The Bride
As the Bride mentioned, it was important to them to have an oyster bar for their guests during cocktail hour and since our headquarters was so close Eco Caters was able to take advantage of our full kitchen and prepare some special treats.
Our organic Los Angeles catering company shucked three choice oysters of differing origins: our local California oyster, a northern west coast variety and a popular Japanese oyster. The trio was complimented with our hot and savory horseradish sauce, a traditional mignonette, and a zippy cocktail sauce.
Along with the oyster bar our Los Angeles wedding caterers offered hummus, tabouli, a colorful olive salad, grilled flatbread, marinated artichoke, and our seared Albacore with an orange grapefruit slaw. But the true crowd pleaser of the night was our fresh-from-the-oven Mini Beef Wellingtons with house-made ketchup and our sweet apricot mustard. These juicy morsels do a wonderful job of tiding guests over until dinner and pair well with hoppy beers or a glass of pinot noir.
The couple also decided on some fun wedding cake alternatives by offering guests waffle cones filled with fresh creme and in season berries, and fun popcorn tubs drizzled with caramel and chocolate. These are the kinds of unique detail we love as a Los Angeles caterer.
If you’d like to hear more about the wedding menu from this wedding or have any questions in regard to customizing your own wedding menu, please give Eco Caters a call! We’d be happy to accommodate your questions no matter how small or colossal they might be.
