Brittany and John 2-18-2012

When this unique bride to be met with Best Catered Events owner, Dianne Evans last year, the wishes she expressed for her special day were quite specific.

Brittany wanted a comfortable rustic and very Spring like wedding and reception.  The Port Vincent Community Center was a quaint little building with rustic hardwood floors and a really old feel.  Best
Catered Events worked around the colors that were chosen by the bride and the overall look and feel
of this venue was very different and a true reflection of the bride's personality.

John's uncle made a black pot Jambalaya and a family friend made his special recipe black pot smothered potatoes with bacon.  Best Catered Events rounded out the menu with the bride's choices of Crawfish and
Bowtie Pasta, Green Bean Bundles, Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Stuffed Eggs, Chicken Salad Croissants, fresh fruit and cheese, smoked beef brisket and summer punch.

Precious centerpieces of button flowers and mushrooms were made by a friend.  The ceiling was flanked by paper circles in printed designs and there were dried tree limbs with paper birds hanging from them. Our photographer was Chris Genovese.

Dianne Evans and her team at Best Catered Events wish the newlyweds all the best!

Leon Murphy Retirement Party - 2-3-2012

Leon Murphy Retirement Party
2-3-2012 C'est Bon Reception Facility

Leon Murphy retired from BASF after 31 years, it was his birthday and December 29, 2011.   His wife of 35 years, Annette and their two daughters Brittany Cormier and Tiffany Murphy wanted to surprise him and celebrate this milestone. 

Along came February 2012, and Leon had been told he was attending a friend's husband's birthday and never had a clue the party was for him!  Upon entering the lovely C'est Bon Reception Facility in St. Amant, LA, Leon was greeted by his two grandchildren Berkeigh and Brogan.  As he entered the ballroom, SURPRISE was yelled and the party got started. 

The band consisted of  the honoree's nephew, Bryce Broussard ( a local Gonzales, La, fireman) and Neal Lambert on percussion.  These two sounded awesome and kept the crowd movin and groovin with special requests and old and new song selections.  Nothing like a live band!

Best Catered Events provided a menu of Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta, Smoked Beef Brisket with freshly baked rolls and condiments, Cold Spicy Shrimp Dip, BLT's, Green bean budnles, Crab and shrimp mushrooms, stuffed new potatoes and a martini cheesecake bar with strawberry and turtle toppings..  The sandwich of choice was our freshly made chicken salad.

Best Catered Events wishes our newest honoree the BEST!

Albany Plantation

Best Catered Events owner, Dianne Evans made the quick trip to Albany, Louisiana today to visit with the owners of The Albany Plantation

This lovely home is an absolute must see for all you brides looking for something rustic.  There is a barn, weathered wide picket fences, trees with branches that touch the ground, a pond, a wooden walk over bridge, balconies, actually too many photo possibilities to remember.

The first floor is an enclosed area with air and restrooms.  This area would easily hold 150 guests, the doors swing open to bring the outdoors in and there are brick paved covered porches around this area for additional tables and seating.  Out back there is a courtyard area where yet more tables can be placed.  Their are many ceremony site options, and the owners and Harlee Page are very easy to work with in planning your special day.

Give Albany a call, and go check out this venue.  I'm glad I did, and I can't wait to book a wedding at this location.  If you need a caterer, please give me a call.....together we can create a storybook wedding!
