We may have found a caterer. Last Saturday afternoon we met with Market Street Catering in Haggen at their Marysville store. Steve Hanft met with us for over an hour. He was able to tell us their history and answered most questions we had. They fed us full of yummy foods including bacon wrapped scallops, baby greens with goat cheese, apples and vinagrette, chicken satay (yum!!) and had prepared a plate of 8 different kinds of cake for us to try. Everything was so good! We decided that we really like them for the main food but not for cake.
On Tuesday we were sent a preliminary menu of salmon and one other entree, which will most likely be chicken. Garlic potatoes, asparagus, salad, one waiter passed app, bread, their amazing basil lemonade (which we also tried at the initial tasting), fruit, salad, etc. Everything sounded good and even the price is pretty close to what we were planning on and that includes linens, waiters, glasses, settings, and a bartender. The one thing I think we will probably add is one more appetizer because the chicken satay was just that good. So now we go back the evening of November 18th for a tasting of this menu. If all goes well we will sign a contract with them. I'm feeling really good about them and wish everything else was this easy!
Next on the list is an officiant, cake tasting, hair and makeup people... and starting to make invitations and other decor! Oh, and I'm meeting with Kathi of Kathi's Freelance Floral next Monday evening. I hope she's good. I'm not quite sure about her but it's worth checking her out in person.
