This past weekend the Tasty Table crew had the opportunity to cater (and celebrate!) a wedding for a couple named Chris and Morgan at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, PA. Growing up around the area, a handful of our team had no idea that such a beautiful little park existed just a short drive down the street from the massive King of Prussia mall. The zoo is located at 1661 Harding Boulevard in Norristown, PA 19401. Even though we were excited for the animals, our mission was to provide this wedding with a meal as alluring as the zoo!
Besides the obvious excitement of being amongst the wildlife, Chris and Morgan decked out their wedding by designing a cocktail safari – an opportunity to grab food and drinks after the ceremony while also exploring the grounds. While their guests mingled and oogled at the animal exhibits and enjoyed the beer garden, we provided them with a variety of finger foods like our passed hors d’oeuvres, build-your-own bruschetta, and homemade tortilla chips and dip.
With their entrées, the bride and groom kept the menu traditional: Short ribs in a cabernet demi glaze, atlantic salmon filet with a lemon and white wine sauce, and an eggplant parmesan option for the wedding party’s vegan guest. German potato salad, seasoned asparagus, and fresh rolls with butter served as the sides. Their guests were treated to desserts beautifully crafted by an outside bakery that also looked scrumptious across the room from our appetizing dinner accommodations.
We had a great time seeing both the amazing animals and the beautiful wedding party, and we wish Chris and Morgan a happy marriage! Thinking of ways to make your wedding spectacular as well? We’ll provide the food to any kind of function. Check out our Weddings page for more information, or place an order directly through us on our online store!
