Emily & Corey – A Malibu Dream

Nothing makes us happier than being able to celebrate the happiest day with a couple in love.  We were lucky enough to be invited to cater Emily and Corey’s wedding up at Malibu Rocky Oaks.

Our process began in January 2017, when we had a tasting for the couple.  During this time, we get to really meet and talk with our clients and see what they are thinking when it comes to their wedding.  It was such a delight to see Corey and Emily’s excitement as they imagined how their celebration was going to unfold.

Finally, over a year later, the big day was upon us.  Set up in the gorgeous hills of Malibu, at the stunning Malibu Rocky Oaks, this wedding was nothing short of breathtaking.  While the sun shone brightly over the golden haze of the hills, the happy couple exchanged their vows surrounded by their loved ones.

As cocktail and champagne were poured, tray passed appetizers consisting of slow braised short rib arancini with veal jus and grated pecorino, as well as a spicy Ahi tuna wonton cup with pickled ginger, jalapeno, avocado mousse and finished with a wasabi dust were passed around.  A cheese and charcuterie station rounded out the cocktail hour.

As the sun began to set, our formal plated dinner began with an arugula salad with charred corn, cherry tomatoes, radish, and a Parmesan zest, all tossed in a Meyer lemon dressing.  Guests had the choice of a seared branzino or pepper crusted fillet of beef as their entrees.  Finally, the evening concluded with the traditional wedding cake.

We never expect anything post-event, so it sure made our day to hear back from the lovely bride.  “Thank you so much, Chris!! Everyone raved about your food and the absolutely incredible service. I literally cannot say enough good things. You guys did such an amazing job. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Such a fantastic evening for such a fantastic couple!

See you at the dinner table,
