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.

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!
