Jaimie Vincent and Jesse Melancon - October 27, 2012 - Greenwood Plantation

Jaimie Vincent married Jesse Melancon on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at Greenwood Plantation in St. Francisville, LA surrounded by family and friends. 

Many made the drive from the Lafayette, LA area for this most special occasion.  The weather was gorgeous, just a little chilly.  The bride was so excited to exit the front door of the lovely plantation home and walk down the petal lined aisle under the oak trees to her waiting groom.  There was an arbor draped with grapevines and rustic lanterns down the aisle, where her groom was waiting her arrival.  Such  an intimate setting for the exchange of vows.

Fine Arts Ensemble provided all of the ceremony music.  Anne D. Bergeron and her assistants did a stellar job of coordinating the evening's activities and keeping everything running smoothly.

After the ceremony, guests remained in the ceremony area where they were served iced tea and appetizers of bacon roll ups and voodoo dip on bong bong chips.

The buffet awaited inside on the main dining table.  Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya, sweet and sour meatballs, shrimp and crab stuffed jumbo mushrooms, crabmeat mornay, blt minis, plantation sandwiches of ham, turkey and roast beef with cheeses, smoked beef brisket and pork loin with freshly made rolls and condiments completed the menu.  There was a fresh fruit and cheese display with Sweet Dumpling Pumpkin garnish and caramel fruit dipping sauce.

The cakes were beautifully designed and created by Sweet Impressions out of Central. 

Out on the back patio, Domingue's Disc Jockey Service was providing music and the dancing began.
Mark Domingue also provided a chocolate fountain and there was a margarita machine in the kitchen house outside as well.

 The bride and her father as they left the front door to walk down the aisle to her waiting groom.  She is so very excited!

Our newlyweds left in a limousine while the guestwaved "wedding wands with bells'' for their departure. 

Jaimie and Jesse are wished all the best for a lifetime of love and happiness from the Best Catered Events team!

Megan Woods and Joshua Courtney were married at Greenwood Plantation on Saturday, October 20, 2012 surrounded by family and friends under the trees on the front lawn.

There were beautiful touches everywhere and it was a very magical day.  The signs, preserve jars, and centerpieces on the seating tables all added to the already magnificent surroundings to create a lovely afternoon reception.

Guests were served mini crawfish pies and blt's on the lawn.  The main buffet table offered Shrimp and Bowtie Pasta, Crabmeat Mornay, Apache Dip with Chips, Little Smokies in BBQ Sauce, Tortilla Roll Ups with Salsa, Spicy Shrimp Dip, Mini Muffelettos, Fiesta Corn Dip, Ham and Asparagus Roll Ups, Fresh Fruit with Harvest Fig Dip, Roast Beef and Pork Tenderloin carving table, tortilla rollups with salsa and Summer Punch.

The cakes were happily devoured by the guests who raved over their flavors.  The Carbon Copy Band kept the guests on their feet dancing and John Williams of Debbie Williams Photography caught all the special moments with his cameras, which were everywhere. 

Best Catered Events wishes Megan and Joshua a lifetime of love and much happiness.  I loved the quote on the back of your program.......keep you did today!

                       When I saw you I fell in love,  And you smiled because you knew

                                      Keep Smiling!!!

Michael and Misty Bonfanti-October 19, 2012

Misty Townsend and Michael Bonfanti came to Best Catered Events after a recommendation from a friend. 

The couple were married on Orange Beach, Florida a few weeks earlier and decided to host a "Welcome Back, We're Married" reception.  They chose the Baton Rouge Gallery and the location was great.  Easy access from the interstate in Baton Rouge, the facility is modern, yet very comfortable.

Unfortunately, my camera blurred most of the pictures that I took, but I am posting the facility anyway.

Misty and Michael, congratulations on your wedding.  Many happy years are wished for you!!

Gypsy/Carnival Theme.....Gaynell and Clint - Afton Villa Gardens - October 6, 2012

Gypsy, Carnival Theme Reception? But of course!

Gaynell Perry and Clint Falcon chose Afton Villa Gardens as the setting for their wedding and reception.  The couple loved the outdoors and they would be right in the middle of it's majesty.

The ceremony was held in the garden.  There were little paper origami cranes peeking up everywhere adding a little whimsy.

After the ceremony, guests walked a short distance to the tent where the reception would be held.  AK Photography captured all of the special moments on film.

The food tables were flanked with beautiful silk neckties that had been sewn together to make a beautiful trim on the black floor length tablecloths.  Once again, that touch of whimsy was all around.  Gaynell loves cotton candy and she had a cotton candy machine for the guests to make their own...along with assorted candies.  The cakes were made by Joan of Amazing Cakes in Prairieville.  There were trivia games and a pinata, which made for a fun afternoon.

The menu reflected the choices that the couple wanted their guests to enjoy.  Best Catered Events served up Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta, Chicken and Waffles, Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms, Finger Sandwiches and lots of other goodies received great reviews all afternoon.

We wish Clint and Gaynell a lifetime full of fun and excitement.....we so enjoyed working with you to create your Special Day!
