On May 14th, 2016, Kristin & Thaddeus were married and had their reception at our Historic Savage Mill Manor House. It was such a delight working with the couple from start to finish. They fell in love with the venue at first sight! From the time that Kristin & Thaddeus had their initial visit to our Historic Savage Mill Manor House, up to their wedding date, the house had a total makeover of the Bridal and Groom suites as well as the bride’s bathroom! They were quite surprised.
Kristin & Thaddeus love Italian & BBQ foods but also wanted to keep things “classy,” so we had to find a way to incorporate all of these aspects into their menu. As opposed to having separate stations for each type of food, we decided to have a Gourmet Italy meets BBQ Picnic style buffet!
During our “Fact Finding” get together at our offices with Kristin and Thaddeus, together we came up with a few Italian ideas including our Homemade Gnocchi Potato Pasta tossed in a Vodka Cream Sauce and Traditional Chicken Parmesan. As for the BBQ options, we decided to go with Putting on the Ritz’ infamous Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Mini BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders, Wood Grilled Vegetable Medley, and House Smoked Beef Brisket. In order to give this menu a touch of class, we suggested the beef brisket to be hand -carved at the end of our buffet and served by one of our professional carvers.
Luckily, the couple opt to rent our beautiful Historic Savage Mill Manor House for the entire day so they would have enough time to get ready, set-up, and take “first look” photos before the rain came. Although, they were not able to have their ceremony outside as planned, the couple was delighted to hold their ceremony in our darling ballroom. After a quick room turnover after the ceremony, the guests were able to enjoy cocktails, dinner, and a full night of dancing and fun!
It was truly a pleasure working with Kristin & Thaddeus. From the start of the planning process up to the departure on the final guest, the couple showed complete kindness and gratitude towards the POTR team. On behalf of the entire Putting on the Ritz Catering team, we would like to Congratulate Kristin & Thaddeus! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
