A review from a February bride:

Posted on March 18, 2019 by Sharon Snuffin

Delicious!

Snuffins did an amazing job catering our wedding! Their process was seamless and Sharon always responded to my questions as quickly as possible. The day of the wedding, there were several servers and bartenders and they were dressed very professionally. We even had a dedicated server just for the two of us! We decided to go with their salmon and beef shortribs. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the shortribs were so tender. I also wanted to surprise my now husband with a special meal and asked Sharon if it was possible. She had no issues with it and he was surprised! At the end of the night, they even gave us a take home basket with a small sample of each of the different foods. Highly recommend hiring Snuffins! You will not regret it!

Tips for the Newly Engaged:

Posted on January 9, 2018 by Sharon Snuffin

Exciting times! Tears and beaming smiles. Sometimes, a bit of a panic!

What to do first? Even before picking a specific date, check out the venues you like and see what is available during your preferred time of year. The most highly sought venues book more than a year in advance. For unique dates (like 8-18-2018), they may book 2 years in advance!

If your first choice in date or venue is not available, consider Fridays and Sundays. Those days book after prime days and the rental often costs less than a Saturday. Most venues also have much lower rental costs if a weekday will work for you. Especially when many guests will be traveling to your wedding, a weekday can be a great choice – giving your guests extra time to do some sightseeing while in the NW.

In addition to looking for a venue that has dates available, consider some practicalities:

-are tables and chairs included in the rental?

-is there free and/or adequate parking?

-do you need wheelchair access?

-can you choose your vendors, or do you have to use those from the venue?

-can you provide your own alcoholic beverages?

-what are the costs for rental for additional hours?

Before booking any venue, be sure to check out their reviews on impartial websites like The Knot, Wedding Wire or Yelp.

The Old is New Again

Posted on March 1, 2016 by Sharon Snuffin

Was it the Fifties or the Sixties when the fanciest salad in a restaurant was The Wedge?  Usually a wedge of crispy Iceberg Lettuce with Thousand Island Dressing and maybe a few Cherry Tomatoes.  Then chefs got more daring and served Wedge of Romaine Lettuce with Bleu Cheese Dressing, Bacon or even Baby Shrimp.  It was a definite move up from the ordinary pale lettuce and Italian Dressing!

Our new favorite first course is The Wedge Re-Invented!  Adorable baby Iceberg Lettuce with Pancetta, Bleu Cheese Crumbles and Ripe Grape Tomatoes.  Some really creative farmer figured out how to grow and ship these perfect little heads of lettuce – amazing!
