The advantages of taking photos before the ceremony are many: *Everyone is still fresh with hair and make up perfect. *Younger family members are still excited and not yet over-tired. *Your guests won't have to wait to start the celebration while you are taking photos. *You will have the maximum amount of time to spend having fun at your reception.

 It’s a magical moment when your first see your partner on your wedding day!!  Many couples struggle with preserving that moment, but also really need to take photos before the ceremony.

The advantages of taking photos before the ceremony are many:

*Everyone is still fresh with hair and make up perfect.
*Younger family members are still excited and not yet over-tired.
*Your guests won’t have to wait to start the celebration while you are taking photos.
*You will have the maximum amount of time to spend having fun at your reception.

A very savvy wedding planner taught me that it is “the moment” that matters, not when that moment occurs.  You and your partner will anticipate and always cherish that first glance.  It could be even more meaningful if it is a private time for just the two of you or time with your closest family and friends.


What a great wedding tasting!

Posted on by sharon in All

Thanks to all our wedding couples that attended our tasting last week!  A special thank you to Susan & David and Erin & Henry that booked their weddings with us during the tasting!  We love our clients!

Our newest appetizer “Kalamata Olive and Goat Cheese Tarts” were a big hit and definitely will go on our list of Passed Appetizers!  I tasted something similar when I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago for the International Catersource Conference and just had to come home and add it to our menu!

We will continue to include tastings of our most popular appetizers when we meet with our couples – our tastings are always FREE!

 


Snuffin’s Tastings are Free!

So interesting – lately we have had so many wedding couples ask what we charge for our tastings.  It seems that many caterers in this area charge prospective clients to taste their food.  Hmmmmmm.


At Snuffin’s Catering, we do not charge for our Wedding Tastings!


We do have two levels of tastings offered:

1.  When couples come in for a consultation with one of our wedding planners, our Chef prepares a tasting plate featuring 4 to 6 different appetizers.  This tasting gives our couples an idea of our flavors and our excellent food presentation.  We always ask about food allergies and preferences so that everyone attending the tasting can be accommodated.

2. Three times a year, we host wedding buffet tastings at our facility in Gig Harbor.  (Usually September, January and April.)  This event features a full buffet of our most popular menu items:  usually two different Salmon preparations, Grilled Flank Steak, two Chicken choices, Grilled Vegetables, Caprese Salad and more.  The evening starts with fizzy Champagne cocktails and is completed by a delicious Wedding Cake from our friends at Celebrity Cake Studio.

We’re proud of our immaculate and organized kitchen and glad to show it off to our clients. During the evening, our Wedding Planners and Chef are available to get to know our Wedding couples and their families, answer questions and give tours of our whole facility.

We do ask our couples to hold their reservation with a credit card which is only charged a nominal amount if the reservation is not used.  (We have to limit how many we can accommodate and really, really hate to turn any one away!)

If you are asked to pay for a Wedding tasting at another caterer in our area, you might want to give Snuffin’s Catering a call first.  We love Weddings and love to have you come into our shop and taste our yummy food!
