Family Style at a Barn Wedding
Here are some photos from a recent wedding that we catered in a restored Barn on a farm property in Bucks County.
Following a tented ceremony outside, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvre in the front section of the barn, which is divided into two, spacious sides.
Guests then found their "Escort Card" tied on a flower in mason jars, and made their way to tables marked by centerpieces of the coordinating flower (loved this touch by Dahlia's Floral Concepts!)
Dinner was served in one of my very favorite styles - a plated first course salad of Baby Greens with Sliced Jersey Peaches, Candied Pecans, Goat Cheese and a White Balsamic Vinaigrete - followed by family style main fare. The one long (90+ feet long) table lent itself perfectly to an easy passing around of yummy comfort food dishes including Lemon Chicken, Roasted Sausage with a Fennel Pepperonatta, Baked Ziti, and Panzanella.
I love that this couple chose to mirror the rustic barn setting with deliciously fitting comfort food. Both were jazzed up, the barn with unique square lantern lighting and burlap table runners...and the food with flavorful local ingredients and thoughtful presentation.
This wedding was a great example of a perfectly laid back ambiance pairing with just enough elegant touches to create a unique guest experience and super fun party!
