Local Hudson Valley Painting Ceremony

Our Bride and Groom that got married on Saturday June 3rd, 2017 had a ceremony like we have never seen before! Usually couples have a “Sand Ceremony” in which they have a big clear jar and the Bride and Groom each have their own jars of sand filled with their favorite colors. During the sand ceremony they pour their sand into the big jar and the two colors mix, which gives a meaning that they will forever be together and not separated.

Well, For Kara and Kyle, they took a different route! They had a Paint Ceremony! Instead of a big jar in the middle they had a blank canvas on an easel. Then they both, at the same time, poured their jars of paint onto the canvas so the colors would mix and drip down. This was such an interesting idea and the guests loved it! It came out to be a beautiful mixed canvas that they can now put in their home as a piece of art that means so much to them from their special day! And not to mention, their color choices were absolutely beautiful together! For the canvas they have Lime green and Teal and then Inside the ballroom Teal and White!

Wedding Menu Planning Tips

Wedding Menu Planning Tips

The big day is soon approaching. It’s time to start planning your wedding menu. Here are some tips to make sure you have the cuisine of your dreams.

Taste. Before you make any menu decisions, do a tasting. The Inn Credible Caterers family (Chalet on the Hudson, The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills, and Inn Credible Caterers Off Premise) offers group tastings throughout the year, as well as private tastings for those unable to attend the group event. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about how the food tastes, portion sizes, and presentation.

Personalize. Select dishes that you really love and make an impression with something unexpected. If you like comfort food, go for the shepherd’s pie. Italian food fan? Consider the San Gennaro Feast. Bacon lover? Add on a bacon station. Want to focus on local sourced? Select a Farm to Table option. Tailor the menu to your tastes, just keep in mind any dietary restrictions your guests may have.

Do you want a traditional sit down dinner, buffet, or progressive cocktail affair? If you want the meal to be the center of the event, choose a sit down dinner. More interested in mingling and dancing? A buffet or progressive cocktail affair may be a better option.

Don’t forget about the cocktails. Select a signature drink for the wedding. Or, pick one for the bride and one for the groom.

Finalize. You will want to finalize your menu one month before the wedding. And don’t worry, we are here to help you make sure everything coordinates beautifully.
