We catered a Surprise Pop-up wedding at The Tasting Room!
The bride and groom, Angie and Scott, wanted to create a spontaneous and carefree wedding experience for themselves and their friends and family. Boy, did they succeed with this surprise wedding!
They told their guests they were invited to a dinner to share great food and great times with friends and family. When the guests arrived, to their astonishment, they found out it was actually a wedding...Angie and Scott were to married then and there! We give special thanks to their wedding photographer, Steve Speckman, for sharing his beautiful photos with us.
To create a calm and natural ambiance the chairs were decorated with sage branches and soft white ribbon.
Having pulled off their first “caper” as husband and wife, the bride and groom shared a congratulatory kiss in the gallery.
After the ceremony guests were seated at tables adorned with succulents in rustic wood boxes and gold mercury glass votives echoing the natural ambiance of the patio.
Guests were delighted with their 4-course Pop-up wedding dinner!
Mary Crafts-Homer introduced each course, explaining the nuances of the ingredients and preparations.
At Pop-up Dinners, guests can watch our chef's cook and plate everything!
Angie and Scott were able to make their rounds to talk to their wedding guests during the first course.
After enjoying passed hors d'oeuvres, guests were served a fresh green salad with Parmesan, lemon vinaigrette, and lemon zest.
For the second course, we served the ultimate comfort food: Mary's homemade meatballs and spaghetti with shaved Parmesan!
How incredible does this grilled prime filet look?! It's topped with melon salsa and served over balsamic potatoes, leeks, and asparagus.
For their fourth course, everyone enjoyed a tasting of Utah cheeses, honey comb, and apple as well as a wine and cheese napoleon on a brioche crostini.
For dessert guests enjoyed petite chocolate fudge wedding cakes with raspberry coulis and edible gold dust sprinkles, served with home made caramel gelato on the side.
All in all – this was a Pop-up Wedding success!
