Today we’re sharing a wedding that’s very dear to our hearts, a wedding between our very own Erin and Matt. From such a dynamic duo we expected a grand celebration to remember, and they didn’t let us down! We can’t just tell you the theme without sharing the charming story behind it. Every year Erin and Matt have hosted a Food & Wine themed party and its become something that they and their friends look forward to – so this year they threw a Food & Wine party to go down in history & the hearts of all who attended.

With an eye for design, Erin designed & created much of their wedding materials such as invitations, menus, and even the delicate place mat you can see below. Working with Puff ‘n Stuff Catering Senior Special Event Planner, Heidi Brice, they choose action stations well suited to their theme. Each station was paired perfectly with either a wine or specialty drink. This sweet affair had a dessert table that dazzled all from their beautiful and delicious Amaretto Wedding Cake from The Sugar Suite, to mini Yum Yum Cupcakes, mini doughnut holes, and iced vanilla lattes shots.

Picking out our favorite moments from this night is near impossible, this really was a stunning celebration that we will gladly share and remember forever. Take a look below and see for yourself why Erin + Matt will always have a place in our hearts:

Vegan Wedding at Orlando Science Center
March 2, 2010 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments


The best part about what I do is work with new people everyday, and help them plan one of the most exciting days of their lives. I find it even more interesting when I am approached by a couple that wants to plan something different, a step out of the box. Celeste and Jason where very up front when they first met me. They were quick to tell me they were Geeky, and had specific ideas about their reception. Of course, the food was our largest discussion, they were vegan and wanted their guests to all learn more about vegan food.

My main concern was making sure the guests that were used to eating meat would be not only comfortable with the food – but thrilled! So after discussing with our Chefs and finding out some of Celeste and Jason’s favorite foods, this is what we came up with:

Butler Passed Hors d’Oeuvres

Avocado Sushi & Asparagus Rolls

Sweet Potato Fries


Eggplant & Roasted Pepper Tapenade
on grilled Tuscan rounds

Dinner Buffet

Field Greens Salad

Fruits of the Season

Oak Grilled Vegetable Display

Crispy Breaded Eggplant
with garlic and basil marinara

Stuffed Portabello
with spinach, chopped onion and mushrooms


Penne Aglio e Olio
e.v.o.o., whole roasted garlic cloves, sun-dried tomatoes and broccolini


Yukon Gold & Parsnip Mashed Potatoes
topped with sage


Fresh Green Beans Almondine


Thanks Celeste and Jason for choosing us to help you create such a fantastic event for your family and friends! Celeste wrote a blog about the wedding as well. Read her blog here.
