If there is anything Cameron and I can agree upon, it's that we need food at the wedding. We're foodies who love exploring new things but always go back to our favorites. Last year, when we took a trip to New Orleans, we had gumbo, jumbalya, creole and other French Quarter cuisines that will always be remembered.
Since Cameron is in charge of food, he wanted to bring jumbalya into our families' lives on our special day. When we went to a tasting at the venue, one of the preferred vendors named Red Roof Catering is a one-woman team. We wanted to know her experience making southern cuisine, and to our delight she had done the catering for Mardi Gras parties in the past. After tasting her dishes we knew this was a great person to work with – she likes to keep produce and meats locally sourced, has almost 20 years of experience in the industry, and her personality was such a delight.
Also, because I'm always looking for a deal, or savings, her offer of four free appetizers to the first 20 people at SummitWynds who booked her was not going to be passed up. We are looking forward to having her cater our wedding next year!
