Vanessa & John Nunez
Winter Wonderland Wedding at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills
It truly was a winter wonderland wedding here at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills on Saturday January 7, 2017.
There was no sign of snow in the forecast when Vanessa and John dropped by earlier in the week to bring all their wedding décor. Vanessa had said to us that she hoped for a little bit of snow and her wish came true! The snowfall that day/night made the wedding even more magical than we had imagined it would be!
After the ceremony, we kicked the party off with an awesome cocktail hour, which included lots of food, drinks and music of course!
Sex on a Snow Bank (instead of sex on the beach):
3 tbsp. of coconut cream, 1/2 oz. of coconut rum, 6 large ice cubes all blended together and rim the glass with some yummy coconut flakes!!!
The Cold Fashioned (instead of an Old Fashioned):
1/2 oz. dark rum, 1 tsp. simple syrup, 2 dashes of bitters, muddled orange peel and an orange peel for garnish!!!
Hot Chafing Dishes at cocktail hour included our famous
Homestyle Eggplant Rollatini:
Gnocchi with Wild Boar Sauce:
Some of our favorite passed hors d’oeuvres included:
Chicken & Waffles
Vanessa and John had chosen all champagne linen to go along with their winter themed wedding, which helped bring out the beautiful centerpieces from one of our recommended florists – Basset Flowers and the snowflake lighting from MSV Entertainment! We turned our complimentary blue up-lighting on and lit some votive candles to help set the ambiance.
About a month before the wedding, we met with Vanessa & John to help choose their wedding menu for their 4 course Sit Down Dinner included in our Diamond Package. Their guests were served a Portobello Mushroom Bisque with Truffle Oil and Chervil for the First Course, which was perfect for this snowy Saturday!
Second Course was a Peppery Arugala Salad with grapefruit, aged asiago and shaved fennel topped off with a citrus vinaigrette.
Guests had an entrée choice of 3 to choose from the night of the wedding.
Prime Top Sirloin Filet “Au Poivre”
Classic Chicken Picatta
Sesame Seared Salmon
Last, but certainly not least, delicious Cupcakes & Pies from our favorite bakery – Homestyle Desserts!
They continued to dance the night away and hang out on the patio with a warm fire pit and cigars!
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Nunez!!!!!!
