And our caterer is…


By the time we got home from our 3rd and final planning trip we decided that if the costs came in close together we might cry, if the official quotes were vastly different then we would go with the least expensive.  To preface this let me say that both Olive Catering and Scrape the Plate put together awesome menus and we know that we would be elated to include either Olive or Scrape the Plate as a vendor…

We received both quotes within days of each other and they both included creative twists to delicious food.  Both caterers use food that is in season and as local as possible (fresh and tasty, mmm)…

Drum roll please… When we looked at the final numbers there was a clear winner.  Scrape the Plate Catering, they came in significantly lower for family style service.  We are pleased to announce that Scott Hale with Scrape the Plate is our caterer, ironically he is the only gay vendor that we found to use on our actual wedding day (neither here nor there we LOVE every single vendor we have chosen to work with).  Scrape the Plate has catered for American Idol and local HRC events, we feel absolutely amazed that we get to work with Scrape the Plate!!!!!!!!

Would you like to know what we will be munching on?
