On top of the amazing view, the weather was a perfect start to what would be a very successful evening. Because the house itself was gorgeous, as was the surrounding landscape, there was really no need for me to bring any additional floral decor (a good tip to keep in mind if you're looking to save money on an event -- pick a location with decor already built into, such as a garden). That being said, set-up was a breeze (no pun intended). We put up a few signs directing people where to park, thanking the Landry's for donating the wine, champagne, and sparkling water, set-up the check-in table and I was ready to go.
The delicious food was catered by Absolutely Gourmet Catering, owned by Brion Clarkson. Thankfully they have catered many events at the Landry home, so it's no surprise that everything went so smoothly. All of the staff acted so professionally and delivered gourmet tasting food at a great price. She designed a menu that was casual, yet elegant in presentation, the perfect combination for our event because it allowed our guests to truly feel at home and comfortable. Guests got to enjoy sliders with chipotle aioli sauce, sweet potato fries, a cheese platter with bake brie, crudites, chinese chicken salad in to-go containers, mini cupcakes, and assorted dessert bars. This event reminded me how refreshing it is to work with vendors that I can trust 100% to deliver without feeling like I have to do everything myself (not that I don't check every detail) but all I have to do is literally check. I would definitely recommend Brion to any of my clients in a heartbeat.
