As couples are becoming more and more concerned with serving up a stellar reception menu, dinner options are becoming wider, more exciting, and more complex! Every wedding guest hopes for amazing food and reception menus have come a long way over the years. Couples, especially the ‘foodie-centric’ type are spending more time getting creative with their menus and making dinner one of their main points of focus.

Luckily, for those of us who live in (or around) Philadelphia, we have the ‘cream of the crop’ caterers to choose from. If you are a Philadelphian and you like to eat (who doesn’t), chances are that you are well acquainted with Starr Restaurant Organization. Aside from operating over 20 restaurants in Philadelphia alone, SRO has a catering department, Stephen Starr Events.

Stephen Starr Events provides clients with options to customize menus based on theme or personality. We love the way Starr Events puts an unexpected twist on classic fare and exotic dishes!

Small bites have gained popularity over the last couple of years. What better way to represent a couple than to serve up mini versions of the foods they love?

We think that the presentation is almost as important as the taste!

Not interested in making dinner the main focus? Couples are offering tasting stations and cocktail style dinner where food is served all night and people can eat whenever they please!

This was a sweet albeit large wedding at Horticulture Center. The ceremony was draped off in  the main room as the chilly weather warranted indoors. The soft colors and tons of candle light made this a favorite wedding of ours.

We were honored to work with an amazing couple on their amazing wedding at Horticulture. The ceremony was held in a tent on the grounds in December. As guests arrived, different flavored popcorns were provided in the cutest boxes. We labeled them; “He popped the question and she said yes!” After the guests moved into the reception area,  we did a full makeover of the tented space to become an after party lounge. This was THE wedding to attend if you wanted to have uncommon fun!
