Amy & Steve hosted an intimate gathering of friends & family at Best Place at the Historic Pabst Blue Ribbon over Labor Day Weekend.  As they’re both foodies who love the flavors of New Orleans, they were thoroughly invested in customizing a Cajun family-style menu. “We even picked up fresh Cajun cheese curds from Clock Shadow Creamery the day of the wedding so they were extra squeaky,” Executive Chef, Dana Spandet shared. “Oh, and people raved about Tall Guy’s homemade mustard seed & pickles!”

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Kansasville, WI, when Caitlin & Ben wed at The Farm at Dover. “The sunglight was peaking through the barn. It was really romantic,” Catering Manager, Veronica O’Donnell recalls. Only fitting, the newlyweds chose a farm stand station with a buffet style dinner.
