Wedding Reception Catering

Picnic Wedding Receptions are one of our favorite events. Your Picnic Reception can be casual and fun, upscale and elegant, or somewhere in-between.

The Casual Reception

A casual picnic reception usually consists of your choice of menu, buffet style service and catering grade paperware. It is most often held in your backyard or at a nearby park. Entertainment might include a DJ, some volleyball or horseshoes and maybe even a softball game. This type of reception is laid back, relaxed and lots of fun.

The Casually Elegant Reception

Just as the name implies, some couples prefer their reception to be neither too casual nor too upscale. Casual elegance is what works best for them. For some this means a more elegant menu served on catering grade paperware, while for others it means hot dogs and hamburgers served on china. But the best part about this kind of reception is that you can incorporate the best of the Casual and the Upscale to create the type of wedding event you have always dreamed of.

The Upscale Reception

An upscale picnic reception is more traditional in nature than your casual backyard picnic. It might consist of a high peak tent with your guests seated on white wedding chairs at a table elegantly set with linens and china. Many couples choose stations for this type of affair although some still prefer to have their guests served tableside. Entertainment is also usually more traditional in nature with a band or DJ and a dance floor.

So what’s the difference between a traditional style reception and picnic style reception?

The food, of course!

Nothing beats the taste and smell of good barbecue!
