Dishing Up a Bowl of Love

How two people and a “family-style” dinner can bring everyone together.  Our team of Los Angeles wedding caterers pulled out all the stops for this beautiful wedding.

Francesca & Sean called on our Los Angeles wedding catering branch to help them create the perfect Eco-friendly wedding.  They came to the table with a lot of creative ideas.  Francesca and Sean wanted a location that would allow them to have the ceremony and the reception at the same location, while also giving them the freedom to express themselves.

After listening to their requirements, Michelle, the coordinator at our Los Angeles wedding catering branch suggested they have their wedding at Marrakesh House; a beautiful, Mid Century Modern home remodeled by documentary filmmaker, Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?). The house has been renovated with the newest gadgets and Eco-friendly systems, while still maintaining its simplicity and design.  They even claim to be, “the most environmentally friendly remodels in Southern California” and I’d have to agree.  The couple fell in love with the location.  As a Los Angeles wedding caterer we love seeing our clients get as excited as we do about certain venues in the Los Angeles area.

The couple wanted a family-style dinner and our Los Angeles wedding catering team was more than happy to accommodate.  It’s fun to see guests passing dishes and platters around the table.  It strengthens the family bond and makes everyone happy, and the dishes always come back to the kitchen scraped clean.  As a Los Angels wedding caterer, that makes us happy!

Our team of Los Angeles wedding caterers started everyone off with a classic Wild Arugula Salad: Fresh arugula, ripe peaches and nectarines, crumbled Point Reyes Blue cheese, and our House Apple Cider Vinaigrette.

The next course our Los Angeles Catering Company dished up was a platter of our Braised Short Rib with annatto, a hint of orange and garlic; a crunchy polenta crusted chicken with House made Lemon Herb Crème Fraiche; A bowl of Wild Mushroom Quinoa; Our deliciously rich
Gouda Mac and Cheese; last but not least, a dish of our
Grilled Farmer’s Market Vegetables (pictured above).

The Marrakesh House along with the carefully selected food and a jolly group of folks dancing poolside meant that Eco Caters had once again pulled off a flawless wedding.  We want to thank Francesca and Sean for inviting us into their family, sharing their most intimate day with us and for being such a fun couple to work with.  We here at Eco Caters wish you well!
