I coined Adela and Josh as – “hipsters trapped in brainy bodies”. Elegant but hipster cool, two uber smart people out to celebrate in style.
The wedding opened with custom cocktails and a very cool grazing station at MOA’s Shell Beach. A ‘Dillicious’, ‘Elderflower Collins’, and ice cold local beers were on offer at the bar, along with an amazing display of cheeses, charcuterie and crudites. What Adela and Josh envisioned for the grazing station was a whole table covered in slate tiles, with an elaborate display for guests to graze upon – A perfect start.
A two course family-style dinner took place under the tent, starting with a duo of salads. The second course featured balsamic & rosemary flank steak, Pacific ling cod, roasted nugget potatoes and warm, grilled vegetables, all accompanied by a quartet of mason jar condiments. And for dessert…Cartems Donuts! A little later in the evening, warm mini grilled cheese and mini pulled pork sandwiches were served to the merry revelers.
From the moment we walked into the office, we knew that this experience was going to be different. Donna has a passion and genuine love for both the people around her and her work. She is incredibly patient, professional and imaginative. She was with us throughout the entire planning process- giving us valuable help and support not only around the food but many other aspects of our wedding. And life in general…
We had a loose vision of what we wanted for food at our wedding, and Donna and her team took those ideas and exceeded our expectations at every turn creating a fabulous menu that was integral to the experience. They coined it “Nantucket Italian,” and it was those two words that would set a theme for our day. And, when it came to the big day the experience was perfection. The fabulous, fresh and locally sourced grazing table, the bespoke cocktails and epicurean styled dinner with all of our favorite things were all perfect start to finish. To this day, our friends comment that the food at our wedding was some of the best that they have ever enjoyed at a wedding (or otherwise!). The support staff on the day of were so warm, friendly, funny and efficient. They were lovely to us and our guests and professional throughout.
It’s hard to put into words how we feel about Donna and the Team at Savoury City in a such a short review.
-If you’re looking for incredibly creative, custom styled food: this is your vendor.
-If you’re looking for a team that will treat you like you are their only customer: this is your vendor.
-If you’re looking for a company that will do whatever it takes to save your wedding when things go sideways: this is your vendor.*
-If you’re looking to work with people you can call family: this just isn’t your vendor, they will be so much more.
We wholeheartedly recommend the Savoury City team!!! It was an absolute privilege working with them.
*Our wedding did go sideways, they were integral to saving our day, and we didn’t even find out until after it was all done!
