With very little time to plan, Kristine and I discreetly exchanged phone calls (a shared email account created a slight obstacle) and a secret rendezvous at our offices to quickly come up with a plan of action: a table for two in an otherwise empty 11,000 square foot ballroom.
Of course it didn’t stop there. Kristine selected her husband’s favorite salad, Classic Caprese, and Marinated Tomato and Artichoke for her. They were to dine on Pepper & Rosemary Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Seared Scallop Brochette Surf ‘n Turf, while sipping Champagne from their original inscribed champagne flutes circa 1995. To complete this meal, our pastry chef, Greg Smitka, created his infamous Passion Fruit Mousse Cake.
To make this day even more special, we created a play list of love songs from the ‘90s to include their first dance song by Bryan Adams, Everything I Do, I Do it for You!
In catering, it’s not the size that a matter….it is the emotion that is evoked from making a dream into a reality!
Happy 14th Anniversary, Kristine and Patrick!
