Real Weddings | Brittany + Brett | Private Estate
September 6, 2011 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering | comments

Summer lovin’ and having a blast! Today’s featured wedding by An Affair To Remember really shows how a true summer wedding should be thrown. Beginning their big day at the beautiful Ritz Carlton, the couple wed and held an elegant cocktail hour at the luxury resort. The party then relocated to the bride’s parent’s home for a fairytale reception!

As guests arrived, they were greeted happily by Puff ‘n Stuff Catering staff with butler-passed beverage service and our delicious Red Pepper Hummus and Hand-Smashed Avocado Dip with freshly baked artisan bread and pita chips for dipping. Once guests settled in, a live band, Powerhouse, took the stage and got the party going! The dance floor filled, and then the crowd cleared to spy the cute couple as they had their first dance under the exquisite orchid and crystal chandelier by Raining Roses. After dancing up a storm, friends and family lined up for the feast Puff ‘n Stuff Catering had prepared for them. Four Dual Chef Attended Stations were set, displaying our culinary creations freshly cooked right before the guests eyes.

Dessert featured their beautiful wedding cake created by The Sugar Suite, along with Bananas Foster Flambe and “Create Your Own Sundae” stations, provided by Puff ‘n Stuff Catering. To conclude the evening, a stunning fireworks show choreographed to music lit up the night sky as guests were served cheesecake lollipops, and cookies and milk shots. A perfect way to end such a beautiful night! Read on to see the tasty menu, photos by Brian Adams PhotoGraphics, and a video highlight from Tampa Wonderworks Films.
