Cathryn meets with you initially to discuss your tastes, your requirements, and the ambiance you are seeking. She is personally involved with every step and always available to answer questions. This is one area where you can turn over all your worries.

Meals may be traditional, ethnic, fusion, regional, or any combination of your favourite things. You may choose the style that best suits your day - a Cocktail Reception, a Buffet, or a sit-down Dinner.

Upon request, Cathryn is happy to include Vegetarian and Vegan options, to offer selections that allow for food intolerances, and to accommodate any other dietary requirements or restrictions.

Service can be formal or casual. The goal is to make your wedding meal delicious, original and stress-free.

Because of new Bylaw restrictions, tent receptions are no longer allowed, so the maximum number of guests is 50 for an indoor reception.  Seated dinners can accommodate up to 20 guests.  Service can be either Buffet of passed hors d'oeuvre.  The Hosts may provide any provisions for a Bar.

You may choose to avoid the expense of a Wedding Planner as we attend to all details associated with the meal such as Staffing and Rentals of Dishes and Glassware.

We can also provide you with the following: a list of Officiants; a shop that specializes in gorgeous one-of-a kind Wedding Gowns; Aestheticians and Hair Salons; Photographers; Florists; Musicians; D.J.'s; Sound and Audio Visual Experts.

Nowhere else can your wedding menu be so perfectly suited to your desires, expectations, and personality.  Your wedding menu will also be unique.
