Bacon Wrapped Chicken Appetizer

The “cocktail hour” serves as an important transition between the ceremony and the reception.   This is the beginning of the celebration of your marriage.  You want your guests to have a strong impression of more good things to come.

You and your family and bridal party will likely be taking pictures during the cocktail hour.   Our staff will ensure that neither you nor your guests go hungry.

Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options are available for all or just a few guests.  Please ask if you have a request we don’t offer; we love to try new things!
