Katie & Chris

We had a wonderful weekend catering the Rehearsal Dinner and the Wedding for Chris and Katie. The Rehearsal was held at Zanzenberg which is in a historical building located in Center Point. This is a lovely venue for small groups (100-125) with a great outside space as well.

Viridian Designs provided quaint arrangements in ball jars and wooden boxes that were perfect for this venue.

In addition to Smoked Brisket we served Cornbread Salad, King Ranch Macaroni & Cheese, Assorted Relishes and Cole Slaw with Peach Cobbler Martinis with Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert.

The Wedding was at Riven Rock Ranch in Comfort. The bride chose a chocolate brown accented with green and white for an understated elegant palette.CarteWheels served a plated meal of Beef Tenderloin Medallions, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Skewers, Jalapeno Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Baby Green Beans with Pancetta, and Dinner Rolls & Herb Butter.

The classic florals were of course from Viridian Designs and the cakes from Sophie's Choice Bakery.
Katie baked her famous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies and offered Diet Coke and Lime as a parting gift for her guests.
Thirst quenchers included Peach Champagne, Sangria and Arnold Palmers all presented in glass barrels.
