Eric and Xin came to us happily married, with a wish to share their love with those closest to them. The pair were looking to host their nearest and dearest for a luncheon and personal vow renewal. On the agenda was to find a venue with an outdoor autumn view, bring in a chef with to die for food and create a warm, intimate atmosphere.
Keeler Tavern set the tone with its historical charm and beautiful inset garden. The space exudes character yet is enough of a clean slate to accommodate almost any design scheme and color palette. It’s wall of glass doors provides a view for all guests to enjoy the green of the garden, bringing the outdoors in. Together, rentals from General Eclectic and Party Rental Ltd. livened the room with a modern take on an old world feel. Greys and blues popped against orange and cream florals and antique brass featuring some quirky vessels made for conversation during lunchtime.
And oh what a delicious lunch it was! After a meeting at The Schoolhouse at Cannondale it was a no brainer deciding to create a menu alongside Tim LaBant. Highlights included pumpkin and sage infused ricotta and walnut crostini, prime roasted short rib with parsnip puree, chanterrelles, brussel leaves and chestnuts and the “First Place Pie” dessert table. YUM! String music over lunch conversation turned to a full on iPod dance session post meal and we could not be more proud of the day!
Thank you Eric and Xin for being such incredibly sweet human beings and many thanks to the amazing team who helped create such a wonderful afternoon for our clients!
