Fresh off the Grill
Grilled anything is the perfect wedding food for lunch or dinner. Shrimp with a side of cous cous is light and filling. Be careful not to serve heavy foods at your wedding. Keep your guests and your fare light.

Equally pretty and delicious, a salad is probably the most cost effective starter to a premium meal. Make it colorful and tasty with different textures. Here, we have arugula, strawberries, feta cheese and pecans. Mix with strawberry vinaigrette dressing and it pairs lovely with your signature cocktail.
