We are so excited to share this Corradetti Glass Studio wedding with you today. There are just some couples that are so unique, and have a relationship that makes you remember why you are in the business of weddings in the first place. Melissa and Zeb have a bond that all couples should hope to have before getting married. Melissa’s father gave a speech before dinner that really summed up Melissa and Zeb’s relationship, and how they are each other’s rock. While we’re still tearing up from Melissa’s father’s heartwarming words, we have to share some photos from this amazing couples’ special day at Corradetti Glass Studio.
Corradetti Glass Studio is a quaint, but stunning glass studio in Clipper Mill Park in Baltimore city. Down the street from the Baltimore Zoo, this family owned studio features blown glass pieces that are available for purchase, or to serve as one-of-a-kind wedding decorations. Corradetti Glass Studio offers glass blowing classes on some weekends, so that leaves the evening hours for weddings and special events. Between the white lights strung from the ceiling, and the colorful arrangement of blown glass pieces, it truly is a breathtaking sight for an evening affair.
That’s why Melissa and Zeb kept their wedding decor simple. Adding to the studio’s ambiance, the centerpieces were a beautiful rustic arrangement, with a wood slice tree slab topped with a mercury glass candle and a mason jar filled with baby’s breath flowers. The perfect touch of eloquence, without taking away from the glass-blown decorations at all.
Melissa and Zeb stayed consistent with the rest of their wedding decor, having a beautiful two-tier, white wedding cake. The wedding table linens were ivory with maize yellow napkins. The ideal touch of color for this spring Corradetti Glass Studio Wedding.
For this venue, we pre-set tables off to the side, so that it is a quick and smooth transition from ceremony to reception. Thankfully, guests can gather by the studio’s gallery, while we flip the room. It is a treat for your guests to see the room transform from the beginning of the event to the end. Once the room transforms for the wedding reception, it is like a whole new experience for your guests. Perfect to keep them entertained throughout the entire event.
Melissa & Zeb took advantage of the spring weather, and took pictures outside. If have not been to the Clipper Mill area, it is worth the trip. The outside is surrounded with rustic, brick buildings that use various up-lighting, and other unique outdoor decorations that add such a charm to the area.
While Melissa and Zeb kept elaborate decorations to a minimum, they created a bold and original menu that pleased their guests. Not to mention, the dual-entree was entirely Gluten-Free, since the bride herself is gluten-free. We even had rice crackers for the bruschetta appetizer. The adorable blonde-haired flower girls, who are also gluten-free, loved these.
Since Corradetti Glass Studio is a smaller venue, we chose not to have a stationary appetizer table. Thus, maximizing the space and room for Melissa and Zeb’s family and friends to move around. Check out Melissa and Zeb’s menu below, and all of the other great photos from this Corradetti Glass Studio wedding. We were so fortunate to be a part of this wonderful couples’ special day. Congratulations to Melissa and Zeb!

We are now in full swing with our spring wedding season, which means we are finally back at some of our favorite Baltimore wedding venues like the American Visionary Art Museum. Jess and George had a beautiful wedding at AVAM this past February. We had the pleasure of catering this gorgeous Baltimore wedding in front of 150 of their closest friends and family members. The wedding ceremony took place inside the American Visionary Art Museum. If you are not familiar with this quirky Baltimore museum, there are unique art pieces and exhibitions on every floor of the museum. On the first floor, there are over sized sculptures like their signature pink poodle, an elephant and many others. These sculptures are also the same one’s that participate in the Kinetic Sculpture Race, an annual race for human-powered works of art, designed to travel on land, through mud, and over deep harbor waters. If you are in town on Saturday, May 2 it is definitely worth the trip to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor to watch these machines race.
Or, if you are like Jess and George, you could just get married in front of a few of these large sculptures. It certainly makes for a one of a kind backdrop for your ceremony. Don’t think the unique backdrops end after the ceremony. Once the bride and groom said their, “I Do’s,” they were able to take pictures inside the museum in front of the life size hot air balloon, which appropriately has the word Love expanding across the front of the balloon. They went outside into the chilly Baltimore night air, and took pictures in front of the breathtaking mosaic mural. You have to see the pictures to appreciate how beautiful the architecture of AVAM lends for wedding photos.
While the bride and groom were busy outside, their guests headed upstairs for cocktail hour. Staying warm with drinks like the signature drink of Jameson and Ginger with a twist of lime, guests mingled and enjoyed delicious appetizers including
Hot Maryland Crab Dip
Bruschetta Bazaar of Tomato Bruschetta, Olive Muffaletta Bruschetta,
and Roasted Vegetable Bruschetta
An assortment of Imported and Domestic cheese,
served with coarse mustard and a selection of gourmet crackers
Sweet and Sour Meatballs
After cocktail hour, it was time to introduce the bridal party and the bride and groom. Once the crowd was warmed up, we moved straight into Jess and George’s first dance. Then toasts to the bride and groom were made to round off the pre-dinner traditions.
Now to our favorite part. The buffet dinner menu. For Jess and George’s AVAM Baltimore Menu, we served:
Fresh Garden Salad of romaine lettuce with shredded carrot, cherry tomatoes, and sliced cucumber tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette
Teriyaki Glazed Salmon presented on a bed of braised spinach, topped with brown sugar caramelized onions
House Marinated Flank Steak served with Cabernet Sauce
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Broccoli with a Lemon Butter Sauce
Artisan Rolls with Rosemary Honey Butter
After the dinner service, it was time for the father-daughter and mother-son dances. The rest of the night, Jess and George got to dance and celebrate with their friends and family. We cut and served the cake, while the guests stayed on the dance floor. It’s always a great Baltimore wedding when guests have a drink in one hand, and a slice of cake in the other. Congratulations to the lovely couple. It was a pleasure catering your wedding, Jess and George!
We are so fortunate to work with such great wedding professionals all over Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. Luckily for us, if we don’t have time to take photos of our food or our event setup, we can lean on talented photographers to share with us the final product of our months of event planning. Today we’re sharing one of our beautiful Cloisters Castle Baltimore weddings that we had the pleasure of catering for Kate and Brent. This lovely couple had a Baltimore wedding that made getting married during winter look good – really good. Every intricate detail was planned so well by the couple, and we were able to work with them to create a catered menu to tie the theme together. Thanks to Jennifer McMenamin Photography for sharing these gorgeous photos with us.
Of course, we have to start with telling you about this Cloisters Castle Baltimore Wedding catered menu that warmed up Kate and Brent’s guests.
Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres
Buffalo Chicken Wontons with Blue Cheese Sauce
Asian Potstickers with Ginger Soy Sauce
Brie and Pear Canape with Raspberry Coulis
Roasted Garlic and Saffron Risotto Cakes with Sundried Tomato Aioli
Miniature Spicy Shrimp Tacos
-Salad- Field Greens Salad with Dried Cranberries, Toasted Almonds,
Crumbled Feta Cheese, and Raspberry Vinaigrette
Boneless Breast of Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Basil Beurre Blanc
Marinated Flank Steak with a Chimichurri Sauce
Accompanied By Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Broccoli with a Garlic Butter Sauce
The menu was delicious, but the decorations and small details are what made this wedding. Kate even had customized Father of the Bride cuff links for her father to wear that had a picture of her and her father from when she was a baby. How adorable is that?
Not to mention the centerpieces and place cards that were inspired by some of Kate and Brent’s favorite authors’ like J.D. Salinger, Shel Silverstein, and Leo Tolstoy. If the decorations were looking that good, you better believe the bride and groom were dressed to impress too. Brent and his groom’s men wore classic black suspenders and bow ties. Kate’s stunning wedding dress had the perfect touch of lace, which she paired with a vintage faux fur wrap for outdoor photos. I told you; they made getting married in the winter look good!
It was a pleasure catering this Cloisters’ Castle Baltimore wedding. Check out these photos from Jennifer McMenamin Photography to see all of the other personal touches from Kate and Brent’s wedding. Congratulations to this lovely couple!

We make unique appetizers like Mac ‘n’ Cheese bites that you will see adults sneaking from the kids’ buffet. Although some of our Mitzvah clients have more of a refine palette, so we bring in a sushi chef to prepare a variety of fresh sushi for their guests.
This was the case for one of our client’s Cole. Cole’s Bar Mitzvah was over the top in the fun category, as their family transformed their backyard into an incredibly beautiful party space complete with two bars, floating lights in the pool, food stations, large white leather couches for seating with “C” for Cole pillows, a large dance floor, and a custom backdrop at th end of a red carpet for guests to take photos and enter into the party like celebrities.
The planning process can be overwhelming, but that’s why it’s important to take advantage of opportunities like the Celebration Showcase. Award-winning vendors, all under the same roof. It really is the ideal time to knock the planning phase out of the park. Check out Cole’s photos from his Bar Mitzvah to help you start brainstorming for your child’s Mitzvah. We hope to see you at the Celebration Showcase at Ten Oaks Ballroom on Thursday, March 12th from 6:00 pm 9:00 pm.
Ok, we’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. We are done with Winter. We are ready to move on to warm, spring weddings and events. We’ll deal with the spring showers, because we know that it will at least bring May flowers. But what in the world does snow bring? Other than lots of layers of clothes, icy conditions, and the desire to stay home to be warm instead of go to your friend’s event. What we should be doing is designing spring ideas for your wedding.
We are ready to start preparing for all of our spring weddings and special events. Whether you are planning a wedding, hosting a spring event or want to spruce up your home decor; we want to share with you some springs ideas for your wedding or event.
This post was adapted from Wedding Party App. Follow their blog for more planning ideas.
First, let’s start with some tips for planning your spring wedding or event.
1. You can’t predict Spring Weather
Even though we may all be done with winter, it may not be done with us. It’s hard to predict when the last of Jack Frost will be, so you need to be prepared for any weather scenario. You can still have your bridesmaids be in super cute spring dresses, but just make sure you have cover-ups, or shrugs for your ladies’ to wear to keep warm from the brisk air.
2. Consider Sunday’s
Most venues and other vendors will offer you a discount for having your wedding on a Sunday. With there being a few extra long weekends in spring, due to national holiday’s- this is the time to consider a Sunday wedding. Your family and friends won’t have to take off any extra time, as they may be visiting home for the holiday.
3. Choose Flowers in Season
Embrace the flowers that are in bloom during the spring, as they may not be available later in the year. The colors from peonies, hyacinths, lilacs, magnolias, tulips, etc. will brighten up your wedding and put a smile on all of your guests’ faces.
Don’t stop with utilizing spring flowers. Embrace all seasonal decor like vintage watering cans full of spring flowers, living centerpieces of herbs and greens, favors with potted seeds for your guests to take home. There are so many ways that will make all of your guests grow to love outdoor weddings.
4. The Colors of Springs
Winter is associated with white and blue; while Fall is more associated with oranges and dark reds. Let spring reign true with pastels like blush pink or dusty blue. Pair these pastel colors with complimentary bright colors, and it will be a spring-time match made in heaven.

I’m sure you are like us and are ready to be outside, under the sun; instead of stuck inside watching the snow and freezing rain fall down. We are so ready for our outdoor weddings and events this summer. One of the fabulous venues where we cater outside is at the Historic London Town and Gardens in Annapolis, Md. This breathtaking venue overlooks the South River in Annapolis, Md. This premiere waterfront venue is ideal for brides and grooms looking for their ceremony to take place outdoors, and to have a breathtaking backdrop for their guests. It is also perfect for those who want a cocktail hour outside, where guests can enjoy cocktails while playing lawn games, or mingling with others while listening to music. This venue is for those who want their reception to take place under a lighted-tent that is provided by the venue. The tent provides cover for your guests’ tables, so it will give your guests a break from the sun as they get to enjoy their delicious menu that we prepare for them. Oh, and they were recently named a 2015 Washingtonian Bride & Groom Best Wedding Vendor. We are so proud to be one of the exclusive caterers for London Town.
There is also an inside part to the property, with a gorgeous back porch. This area, which is fully lit, is where we set-up the bar. It is the ideal space for giving your guests room to choose their drinks and to have a few high top tables available for your guests too. With tables and chairs available to seat up to 150 of your guests for dinner, this venue provides it all to make the wedding planning process as stress free as possible.
So, are you ready to see this gorgeous venue?

The origins of Valentine’s Day dates back to the 5th century, with many debates as to how St. Valentine and the holiday that has over 150 million people exchanging holiday cards all started. No matter what you believe of these traditions and how they began, I think that we can all agree that exchanging your vows on a day momentous for love is more than fitting.
Colleen and John celebrated their love for one another this past Saturday, February 14th. The couple had a lovely ceremony at a gorgeous church in Baltimore. As the bride walked down the aisle in her red high heels, it was clear to guests that this Valentine’s Day was going to be one to remember. After Colleen and John said their, “I do’s,” a pipe and drum band played, as the recessional walked down the aisle and off to the Valentine’s wedding reception at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. John is a firefighter, so the pipe and drum band paid tribute to his heroic work, and sent chills down their guests’ spines with the beautiful music.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry is a unique venue in Baltimore that sits on the Inner Harbor and overlooks the iconic Domino’s Sugar sign. It is an ideal venue for large guest counts, and for those that want their guests to experience insight into the history of Baltimore. As guests wandered the museum, we served mushroom caps stuffed with crab, buffalo chicken wonton with blue cheese, candied bacon, Latin beef empanadas, and scallops with bacon gastric. We also had a welcome table complete with sweet and sour cocktail meatballs, hot Maryland crab dip, Natty Boh cheddar cheese fondue, and an antipasto platter with marinated olives, artichoke hearts, provolone cheese drizzled with balsamic glaze, Genoa salami, pepperoncini, mushrooms and roasted red peppers. This was a true Baltimore themed Valentine’s Day wedding at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
As guests took their seats after cocktail hour, Colleen and John had an amazing surprise in store for them. Instead of traditional introductions, they had the Racing Presidents from the Washington Nationals baseball team there to escort the bridal party. Not familiar with the racing presidents? Just picture jumbo sized heads of past presidents like Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington. They’re famous for the race that takes place every home game at Nationals park in Washington, D.C. These mascots with heads the size of Bobble Heads (but way bigger), are a crowd favorite that generate cheers louder than any play demands during the game. Having the Racing Presidents at the wedding reception generated those cheers, as well.
With an introduction like that, we of course had our hands full following with the main dinner course. We did not disappoint with chef carved tenderloin of beef with Cabernet sauce, boneless breast of Parmesan crusted chicken with basil beurre blanc, a baby field greens salad with crumbled Gorgonzola cheese and sliced jicama, tossed with raspberry vinaigrette, haricot vert with lemon zest, and triple roast of Yukon gold, red bliss and sweet potatoes. We even made children’s meals of chicken tenders, french fries, and applesauce. Talk to your event designer about creating a separate meal for your smaller guests.
To top of this amazing Valentines wedding off at the Baltimore Museum of Industry we had chef prepared bananas foster served over ice cream, an assortment of cheesecake lollipops, and wedding cake. Congratulations to Colleen and John! We had so much fun catering your Valentines Day wedding at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
What could be a more romantic way to celebrate your Valentine’s day than by cooking your loved one a home-cooked meal. Or even better, you could cook with your loved one to make it an affordable and fun Valentine’s Day dinner. Choosing what dinner to make can be difficult, not to mention determining what wine best pairs with your Valentine’s Day dinner. We have 15 romantic food and wine pairings for Valentine’s Day that will leave you more time with your Valentine, and less time pouring over cookbooks. The great thing about this list is that it offers suggestions for your Valentine’s day dinner, but in no way confines you to these options. Simply interchange the proteins listed with what you have on hand, or what is fresh at your grocery store. For example, if you don’t have corvina, then you could substitute it with tilapia or cod. Any white fish would do, and would still pair well with Sauvignon Blanc. *The pictures below are all meals that we prepared; however, the wine’s pictured are not chosen for any specific brand. It is simply to show you the type of wine that would work best with the meal. We recommend any brand of wine that is available to you, and affordable.
15 Romantic Food and Wine Pairings for Valentine’s Day
1. Field Greens Salad with Fresh Goat Cheese and Mandarin Oranges paired with a glass of ChampagneA light and refreshing start to the meal, we are pairing a fresh field greens salad with a glass of champagne. Always refreshing, most champagnes have lovely apple and pear flavors that finish with a burst of lemon that would go perfectly with a field greens salad topped with fruit. We topped ours with goat cheese and mandarin oranges to incorporate the creaminess of the cheese, and the fruity taste of the colorful oranges. We also served ours with a light tomato soup, but if you wish to save room for the main course, then a salad with champagne is the perfect duo.
2. Spicy Shrimp Miniature Tacos with a glass of RieslingKeeping in the white wine family, we’re serving our signature spicy shrimp miniature tacos with a glass of citrusy Riesling. This fruity wine is the perfect balance with the spicy flavors of the taco. Plus the petite size of the tacos makes it an ideal size for an appetizer and appealing to the eye.
3. Crab Cake with a glass of White RiojaWhite Rioja, is not only fun to say but also pairs very well with seafood. It is a Spanish white wine that is light-bodied, lively and dry. Of course a Baltimore Valentine’s Day cannot be complete without a crab cake. Our signature crab cake is stuffed with Gruyere cheese that takes the lump Maryland crab to a whole other level. This could be a part of your appetizer course, or it can be your entree. Either way, your Valentine will be swooned by this romantic food and wine pairing.
4. Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta with a glass of Chianti Another practical Valentine’s day appetizer is an heirloom tomato bruschetta. Bruschetta incorporates all things good in this world, as it is the perfect combination of chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil and garlic. Seriously, does it get any better? Pair this classic Italian dish with a glass of Chianti and you will be falling in love with your amor all over again.
5. Crab Arancini with a glass of ChardonnayWant a quick way to impress your Valentine’s day date? Sneak more crab into your meal, and do it with an eloquent presentation. These crab arancinis are filled with crab and cheesy rice making it an unbeatable combination. What goes perfectly with seafood? Butter. What’s the closest comparison to butter when it comes to wine? Chardonnay. A glass of chardonnay with these crab arancinis will make cupid wish this was a dinner for three.
6. Duck Sliders with a glass of Pinot NoirIt’s ok if you are not that familiar with duck, that’s what Valentine’s day is for. Experiencing new dishes and flavors with your partner in crime. These duck sliders would go well with a sweet and light glass of Pinot Noir. We like to top our duck with a blueberry compote. This would elevate your dish to another level, and leave it hard for you to ever go back to a beef slider again.
7. Lamb Chops with a glass of ZinfandelWhether you are in a relationship with someone with a Greek background or not, lamb makes for a beautiful romantic dish for Valentine’s day. Lamb chops are relatively easy to make, and it makes it seem even easier if you pair it with a glass of Zinfandel. Wild raspberry and rose petal aromas permeate from Zinfandel and compliment lamb chops very well.
8. Swordfish with a glass of Pinot NoirSwordfish is the steak of seafood and makes for a hearty meal that would fill you up this Valentine’s Day. This meaty fish would pair well with a light red, like a pinot noir. This ruby red shows notes of black cherry, tart cranberry, potpourri, tobacco, black tea, forest floor, or cloves. An unbeatable pair, just like you and your Valentine.
9. Coq Au Vin with a glass of Cabernet Coq au Vin is a classic French dish of chicken that is cooked in red wine. It is a delectable rustic dish that is sure to comfort you and your loved one this Valentine’s day. Since the chicken is cooked with red wine, then it only makes sense to drink a glass of red wine with the meal. We would recommend something light like a Cabernet Sauvignon.
10. Corvina with a glass of Sauvignon BlancIf you are a fan of white fish, then corvina is about to be your new best friend. Delicious in taste and texture, this fish pairs well with a sweet white wine like Sauvignon Blanc. We would recommend some colorful sides like sweet potatoes and asparagus to dress up this white fish.
11. Portobello with a glass of MerlotA vegetarian Valentine’s Day meal option, this portobello stack is absolutely beautiful and beyond tasteful too. The portobello mushroom is stuffed with slices of tomato, squash and mozzarella cheese. It’s topped with a balsamic glaze that is the perfect touch of flavor to these roasted vegetables. A full-bodied wine like a Merlot would pair well with this rustic meal.
12. Beef Tenderloin with a glass of SyrahSliced beef tenderloin is hard to beat for any occasion, especially when it is topped with a Cabernet sauce. We slice our meat after it is medium rare, so that it is tender enough to be sliced with your fork. We would pair this meal with a spicy red like a Syrah that is the perfect blend of savory and spice. Any side would do, but we stay traditional pairing ours with a potato and vegetable.
13. Veal Osso Bucco Shepard Pie with a glass of ChiantiThis classic Northern Italian veal dish is modernized in a Shepard Pie recipe that will knock your socks off. We make miniature Shepard Pies in ramekins because we plan for several courses for our romantic food and wine pairing for Valentine’s day. Pair this veal osso bucco Shepard pie with a glass of Chianti and you’ll practically be enjoying your Valentine’s day in Italy, instead of cold Maryland.
14. S’mores with a glass of Port Wine What better way to end your Valentine’s day romantic food and wine dinner, than with s’mores? We make ours on lollipop sticks, to avoid the ooey-gooey mess and to easily top them with warm chocolate and crumbled graham crackers. What would be better is if you have a fire place, and you can cuddle next to your Valentine and make s’mores while drinking a glass of port wine.
15. Chocolate mousse with a glass of Zinfandel Chocolate is a must for Valentine’s day, so we made our chocolate mousse cups to enjoy with a glass of Zinfandel. The sweet, fruity red wine works perfectly with the rich dark chocolate. Your favorite chocolate dish will work perfectly with this aromatic red wine.
We hope you enjoyed these 15 romantic food and wine pairings for Valentine’s day. Enjoy Valentine’s Day with your loved ones!
