A word from Mezze: Early in the planning process, Rebecca and Jason decided on a few priorities that would set the tone for their beautiful wedding celebration. Dedicating their time and energy to the components they felt would create a memorable guest experience, they nixed the ceremony programs, guest book, printed menus and favors entirely. Fortunately for this exceptional couple, thoughtful food and beverage programs are our focal point and we were happy to accommodate.
With fun and fitness kicking off the big day, the bride and groom and a few friends began their morning with a run in the Tanglewood Memorial Day Weekend 5K. Ambitious! Later that afternoon, guests arrived for the wedding celebration at Stonover Farm in smart, fun and formal attire. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a signature Gold Rush craft cocktail and spiked rhubarb shrub. The attentive staff butlered canapés to festive guests as they relaxed into the bucolic setting. Daire, our farm-focused chef, created a house-made charcuterie and local vegetable board, which was placed beneath the weeping willow framing Stonover’s charming pond. A family-style meal featuring short ribs with roasted farmed and foraged spring vegetables followed in the attractive and elegantly decorated barn space. Handmade chocolate-peanut butter bars were a perfect conclusion to a terrific meal.
The evening didn’t end there… Congratulatory fireworks plus a warm and welcoming fire pit complete with s’mores kept guests engaged in the great outdoors after dinner. The lively DJ entertained indoor guests on the dance floor. Save for a core group of revelers lingering, sleepy and contented guests enjoyed a nostalgic ride back to their hotels on chartered school buses. Back at the farm, the celebration continued with locally crafted beer and Mezze Catering + Events’ famous late-night grilled cheeses.
It was truly a night to remember.
