Recently we the lucky at Jennie Cooks Catering got to participate in a super fun television event-twice! A brilliant concept of creating the brides dream wedding with less tacky and WAY more classy, David Tutera picks couples who are already planning what could be a potential tragedy of a theme wedding and creates magic. On two particular episodes he and his team were smart enough to call the Jennie Cooks Catering team and we were smart enough to accept the challenge.
The first episode we worked on is called “Pirate Wedding” and believe me it’s as wonderful as it sounds! Truth be told when the crew heard about the theme we were worried. Would there be eye-patches? Peg legs? Parrots???? But instead when we arrived we were greeted with beautiful opulence. Tables covered in jewels and champagne aerialists moving in gorgeous flow as they filled the guests glasses. (and yes our bartenders just underneath these lovely ladies had a blast!) Speaking of bartenders, the already tightly run ship (pun intended) was hijacked by the wedding party themselves and it was very scandalous indeed! I guess they really thought they were pirates. Tune into the pirate wedding episode to see if they air the true story!
The next party we did was a greek themed wedding with a simple easy menu of hummus, greek salad and a kalamata, sun-dried tomato penne paired with a delicious homemade (of course) white wine sangria. The wedding was a beautiful vision of white and truly the bride and groom were so very happy and in love. Don’t ask me about the wedding cake fiasco because it was WAY too embarrassing to get into. But do tune in to see if the humiliating experience made it onto air 🙂
Once again the Tutera team outdid themselves with verve and flair in every aspect of presentation. The guests were so happy we had to kick them out.
Perhaps my favorite part of this wedding were the live action greek tableaus. About six people all painted in white standing on pedestals moving slowly and gracefully though out the wedding. Also the DJ was KILLER!!
