Want a fun San Diego wedding venue that has a beautiful property surrounded by tropical gardens, a large house ready to be used however you wish, overlooking the ocean? Then say, “hello” to the Soledad Club. Eco Caters was on hand to help Patrick and Maria take advantage of this exciting San Diego event space.
Our San Diego wedding catering team not only catered our popular all-organic cuisine for Patrick and Maria’s wedding, we were also their San Diego wedding coordinator. Our clients love the convenience and simplicity of only having to remember one phone number when planning their wedding, and its Emily Brune’s at our San Diego branch, Eco Caters.
Emily of our San Diego wedding catering company sat down with Patrick and Maria and went over everything with them, so that their San Diego wedding would turn out just as they had dreamed it to be. Here’s the bride in her own words on the day:
“We had the best experience with Eco Caters, everyone loved the food and Emily, Lauren, Adam, and all the servers were fantastic!”
As friends and family arrived, they were offered refreshing organic beverages from our San Diego wedding caterers. Sweet lemonade, sun brewed iced tea, and water infused with some crisp mint sprigs, were displayed in old, glass dispensers. This is staple we serve at all of our San Diego wedding catering events and always goes over so well as guest mingle during those hot summer months.
Following a tear jerking ceremony over looking the San Diego coast line, attendees were offered some savory appetizers during cocktail hour: A homemade hummus trio with cucumber yoghurt, mixed olives, and warm flatbread. Our chefs also prepared three different kinds of fresh salsa, with Organic tortilla chips, and guacamole.
As the sun began to set and guest found their way to their seats, our San Diego wedding caterers opened up the buffet. The all-organic wedding buffet was all food Patrick and Maria loved during their food tasting with us and the couple was just as please the second time around when trying our food as they were the first. The couple decided to open up their feast with a nice large bowl of mixed Farmers Market greens tossed with crisp vegetables and topped off with our homemade Apple Cider Vinaigrette. For protein, the couple went with a Blackened Local Fish with Rice and Refried Beans, and our spicy Chipotle Blueberry Chicken. And lastly the couple picked out a few delicious side dishes to complment the rest of their meal with grilled Farmers Market vegetables (zucchini, bell peppers, leeks, carrots, and squash), and our popular mirepoix quinoa.
A big thank you to Shana Siler of Siler Photography for allowing us to share these wonderful wedding photos with all of you.
