More and more, couples are looking to personalize their wedding reception so that the reception is a reflection of their taste and style. A great way to set your wedding reception apart is by selecting a themed menu.This past June 13th, Michelle and Jason had their wedding ceremony and reception at Majestic Gardens and their theme was upscale barbeque. When Michelle and Jason first came to visit Majestic Gardens, they had already decided they wanted to go with a barbeque-themed wedding reception. After spending time with them and listening to what they had in mind, we worked together and came up with a menu that reflected their vision. As the guests arrived, they were greeted in the lobby with Pink Lemonade Sparkling Cider Cocktails and Mango Iced Tea. Guests retrieved their escort cards as they made their way to the Secret Garden for the ceremony. The escort cards were placed on beds of wheat grass for a beautiful presentation. For the cocktail hour, the passed hors d’oeuvres included Barbequed Riblets, Mini Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Spicy Chicken Drumettes, Roasted Vegetable Skewers and Cajun Crab Cakes to name a few. Other cocktail hour selections included the Miniature Vegetable Garden and the All American Station featuring Sliders, Heart-Shaped Grilled Cheese, French Fry Cones and Mini Corn Bread Muffins. Following the cocktail hour, the guests were invited into the ballroom where the tables had lavender gingham runners, beautiful floral centerpieces designed by the couple and custom table numbers displayed on miniature beds of wheat grass. For the main course, guests had a choice of a Gourmet Sirloin and Short Rib Burger, Bourbon Basted Barbequed Chicken Breast and Pineapple Barbeque Glazed Grilled Salmon accompanied by Twice Baked Potatoes, Green Beans and Roasted Corn. In additon to the wedding cake, guests were invitied to make their own Cheesecake Martini by adding their favorite fruit or candy topping to a scoop of cheesecake served in a martini glass. To complete the theme, guests were sent home wtih a bottle of barbeque sauce as the favor.
