Twenty-one years ago, Emma (who owns CAPERS CATERING here in Boston) married her high school sweet-heart in a classic country club wedding. The setting was gorgeous, but the wedding was large and formal. After decades of catering the gamut of weddings at Capers, Emma prefers smaller casual affairs.
Emma's "take two" would be a party outside with lots of creative lighting
With a short wedding dress
The menu would include hand-crafted local and seasonal foods with lots of passed hors d'ouevres
A selection of signature cocktails
Creative dessert displays
And any casual party should have grass on bare feet and family dogs!
