REAL WEDDING // anusha AND andrew
Backyard, Hindu, Two-day
It all started when...
The mother of the bride, Bernadette shared with me Anusha and Andrew’s vision of a backyard wedding at their home in Powell, OH complete with a sail cloth tent, café lighting, Indian inspired hors d’oeuvres using local ingredients, bright colorful florals, wood top tables and more! It was clear after our first meeting this wedding was going to be unique, challenging and oh so charming. Chef Kevin and I brainstormed together to create a menu including local vegetables with a minted pea puree, stuffed peppadew pepper with baba ganoush (YUM!), garam masala crusted tuna on a fresh cucumber coin, and chai spiced cake pops topped with toasted pistachios to name a few!
Tracie Zody with Bliss Wedding & Event Design did an incredible job coordinating vendors and making Anusha and Andrew’s vision come to life. The reception turned out perfectly and I truly felt I’d left Columbus for the day and stumbled upon a storybook place I got to call my “office”. I can’t thank Bernadette and her family enough for allowing myself and the Two Caterers Team to embark on this journey of planning with them. You gave us the opportunity to be creative on not only menu items, but on presentation and food displays which is truly a joy for our team. I hope every guest left with a smile on their face and a full, happy belly!
Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day, congratulations Anusha and Andrew!
