Samantha and Brandon approached Neuman’s Kitchen to cater their September 2012 wedding. They envisioned a hip, loft-like venue with a rooftop for the ceremony. They are avid, healthy food lovers (Samantha is a nutritionist and yogi) who did not want a traditional seated diner.
When Samantha and Brandon saw Skylight West it was love at first sight. Working with Atlas flowers, we created a gorgeous rooftop Chuppah and a canopy of branches above the dance floor. Centerpieces were birch logs and seasonal fall leaves.
Immediately following the rooftop ceremony, guests proceeded to the first floor for passed hors d’oeuvres and stationary foods and cocktails. Offerings included Tuna Tartar on Shitake Rice Cakes and Scallop and Lobster Ceviche.
The first course was a plated Beet Napoleon with Frisee, Orange Segments, Chevre Endive and Hazelnuts. Guests selected their dinner from among the beautifully displayed stations. Whole Roasted Sirloin graced the carving station while the seafood bar featured lobster, Hamachi, and sea scallops. The tapas station included baby lamb chops with tomato and olive relish as well as artichoke Escabeche and Red Wine Braised octopus.
Desserts included a trio of pre-plated desserts and a beautiful wedding cake.
Bride and Groom Testimonial:
“Really enjoyed the tasting – the food was the best part of the planning portion. Day-of wedding everyone was super professional and on top of everything. Food was out of this world, everyone is still raving about the food. Food presentation was fantastic!
There was never a problem, their team took care of everything for us from start to finish. Neuman’s Kitchen staff was very attentive and we never had to think about anything. They took the time to get to know us as a couple and what we wanted. We wanted urban organic to our urban NY wedding.
Neuman’s Kitchen even helped coordinate between all vendors didn’t just manage the food- did it all! When you have a fantastic caterer where you don’t have to worry about the details really makes a difference. We recommend Neuman’s Kitchen to all our friends and we would happy to use them again.”
