What better place to tie the knot than on an island surrounded by yachts!
On a lovely summer day in August, Jimmy and Erin tied the knot at the Lido Isle Yacht Club. With sand between their toes and a cool breeze coming off the surf, the couple shared their vows with friends and family on the island of Lido Isle in Newport Beach. Our Los Angeles wedding caterers was on sight to help rain in their pacific coast wedding.
The Lido Isle Yacht Club is full of history. Established in 1928 the club began teaching children the art of sailing and grew into the community staple it is today. The club is nestled on the waters edge surrounded by docked boats from all over the world, and its view during sunset from its large picture windows makes hosting a party at the club a scenic one.
When Jimmy and Erin came down to visit our Los Angeles wedding catering office for their food tasting, they fell in love with our chef’s Muffuletta sandwich. (A traditional style muffuletta sandwich consists of a muffuletta loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of marinated olive salad, capicola, salami, pepperoni, ham, Swiss cheese and provolone.) Even though the couple had already decided on their dinner menu, they just had to find a way to put these tasty sandwiches on their menu. So, our chef came up with a clever way to server them as appetizer-sized sandwiches for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. They were a big hit! Those are the types of creative solutions our Los Angeles catering team love solving for our clients.
For the main course, our Los Angeles wedding caterers served up a beautiful buffet. Serving a wedding buffet is a great way to save on wedding costs while also making sure your guests get exactly what they want to eat. And the food is just as good! Our chef served up a nice grilled organic Hanger steak with fresh herbs and grilled shallots, our special Mojo Shrimp Skewers with chopped pineapple and chives on a bed of angel hair pasta, Wild Mushroom Quinoa (which has been a very popular summer menu item for us), and an assortment of grilled Farmers Market vegetables. The dishes were scraped clean, something any Los Angeles wedding caterer loves to see.
From all of us at Eco Caters, we’d like to thank Jimmy and Erin for making us apart of your special day and choosing us as their Los Angeles wedding caterer. We were honored to be apart of it and we wish you nothing but the best! We’d also like to give a special thanks to Jennifer of Jennifer Gilmore Photography for sharing these wonderful photos.
