Wedding CakesOur wedding couples have brought into our wedding ballrooms some spectacular cakes over the years, and we must say that the 2015 wedding cakes have been especially superb in design (and taste, judging by our many wedding guests’ rave reviews!)

Wedding MenusWedding couples know that their guests are savvy foodies with an appreciation of fine cuisine and a sophisticated palate. They also know that wedding guests fully enjoy comfort food, sliders, and short ribs.

The question, “Which is better for a wedding reception, a sit-down wedding dinner or a buffet” can only be answered by you.
