Julie and Chris Dalby

Knoxville, TN Wedding

Welcome from Julie and ChrisThis Vintage Wedding Reception was Extraordinary !!! A collaboration of several great minds , coordinators, and exceptional vendors…

Let me start with the ladies at The Wedding Market at 2911. The details of the day were carefully orchestrated like a symphony, with much of the added touches to this reception happening days and months in advance. For example, this well kept secret of a grooms “cigar lounge” was a perfect gift from Julie to Chris….. adding a Gatsby touch.

Grooms Humidor The Wedding “I SPY” table was fun for guest

Wedding "I SPY"The use of the Vintage Typewriters was very clever….

Bridal Portrait And WOW..just “WOW” the sound from the Cover Band “The Coveralls” was amazing! They keep the guest entertained into the late evening with their great sound.

The Coveralls.. Band Extraordinaire “Mother of the Groom” was enlisted to prepare Chris’s favorite cookie recipes…served up with Wedding Cake as the Grooms Choice.

Orange and White Thumbprint CookiesGrooms Choice "Lemon Cookies with Milk"OK .. Since this is a Caterers Blog… I must share some of the incredible food pics. Julie and Chris talked to several different caterers in the Knoxville area, without full confidence in their ability to deliver their envisioned food reception. Then remembered attending an Open House where we served up food samples… and just loved all our recipes. So, with the help of Brenda at The Wedding Market at 2911, they got in touch with us to complete this perfect wedding reception menu! We offered the right “Vintage Look ” buffet they were looking for, and the menu they chose was perfect!

Roasted Pecan (Cornbread) stuffed Chicken Gallentine, with a light curry Bechamel Sauce.

Strawberry Wedding CakeI really enjoyed creating this cake for Quotia! Rarely does a bride just give me a color swatch, some likes, and say just create something “your the artist”…. Well, Quotia did just that! She told me that she liked bling and silver 🙂

Chef Tony

The views from the Sunsphere are incredible…The beautiful couple got married under the amphitheater and then the guest just walk over to the elevator and up to the magnificent dining room on the 6th floor.
