A Return to Classic Wedding Style

Wedding Venues, 2015 Wedding Trends and Truly Wonderful Wedding Gifts from Coast 2 Coast Catering for your classic wedding

Envision socialites partying in the gardens. Items like silver & crystal-adorned tables or champagne fountains and towers setting the tone yet all in a casual outdoor or rustic setting. Think some more for your wedding: summer parties in the Hamptons, a picnic lunch at a polo match or dinner at the Kentucky Derby.

Exquisite Foods & Elegant Affairs

Coast 2 Coast Catering offers the finest in personal service, design & event planning. It takes only one meeting with owners & chefs Gerard Monte & Hector Rosano to know you are in good hands. Their volumes of experience, especially in weddings, affords a bride and hosts alike the luxury of truly enjoying their day as all facets and details are meticulously coordinated and executed by their seasoned staff. “Our ability to provide not only the foods, and staffing, but cake, florals for ceremony & reception as well as every detail of rentals and planning is what sets us apart” exclaims Hector. “We do not believe in cookie cutter weddings and even though we work with several event venues and offer packages with those facilities, we still encourage each bride to personalize the menu, look and feel for the big day”. “Personal style is the most important aspect when planning your wedding day,” offers Gerard.

Here are a Few of Gerard & Hector’s Style Suggestions for 2015

The Great Gatsby and Roaring 20’s era is still inspiring event and wedding themes with visions of socialites partying in the gardens. “Timeless elegance” and “classic” are terms that are also fully affecting wedding designs for 2015. Items like silver and crystal adorned tables or champagne fountains and towers set the tone yet all in a casual outdoor or rustic setting. Think a summer wedding party in the Hamptons, a picnic lunch at a polo match or dinner at the Kentucky Derby.

Dining “al fresco” is huge for weddings this year. Whether it be county BBQ, east coast shrimp boil or farm to table style, dining under the stars is where it’s at for 2015.

If you have caught an episode of Downton Abbey, you know how important service was for entertaining your guests. Inject some of that Edwardian culture into your wedding or event by having service come to your guests. Have champagne or signature cocktails tray passed at the conclusion of the wedding ceremony or have servers approach guests for refills of beer, wine or soft drinks during the reception.

Gerard & Hector also own Madeline’s Café & Bakery. A charming restaurant and gift shop located in Jasper, Georgia. The café features all original recipes using the freshest of ingredients. The bakery offers mile high cakes and sumptuous desserts as well as a host of local, domestic and imported cheeses and meats. The gift shop houses wonderful gourmet foods, home décor accessories and art work as well as handpicked ladies jewelry and fashions. It is the perfect spot for picking up a gift for that special someone.

Madeline’s is also home base for Coast 2 Coast and the recently added banquet facility, The Charleston Room. An elegantly appointed space adjacent to the café with an attached gourmet coffee bar & wine tasting room. It is an ideal space for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, club meetings, fundraisers and celebrations. It serves exquisite foods and designs elegant affairs at affordable prices. Give our office staff a call to check date availability, plan event details and research pricing options.
