Things I Learned While Catering

Wedding Catering: Sandwiches and Salads

So, my husband, the amateur photographer, did the photography, including some traditional poses. A friend of the groom’s did the cake. My brother-in-law played piano while his wife handled all of the decorations. I volunteered to feed everyone. The bride had some requests: Simple, down-home lunch with mini-sandwiches. Lots of strawberries (her favorite fruit) along with more fruits and veggies. A few different appetizers, maybe some desserts (no one knew if there would be a wedding cake as procuring one hit several snags).Wedding Catering: Sandwiches and Salads
