I’m not AA, but I think a Soul Food wedding would be delicious!! (As long as there are options for any vegetarian guests you might have.) And I’d bet there are Soul Food places near DC that would cater a MD wedding.

I’m not AA, but I think soul food sounds great (and I know lots of people in the South who’ve done really elegant weddings with fried chicken and bbq). If you search ‘soul food caterer MD’ or for DC, I’m certain you’ll find something. A lot of BBQ places that do caterer can make it as laid-back or as fancy as you want, and a lot of it is just presentation and how it’s set up.

And now I’m hungry.

I’m not AA, so my input won’t be much help, but soul food sounds amazing to me.  (Now I’m craving Amy Ruth’s!) hahaha

I’m Haitian as well.  My Fiance is White (Irish).  So I understand your dillema in blending two cultures.  In our case, the caterer in our venue didn’t offer buffet style menu but allowed us to bring some outside food. So what we decided to do, for the cocktail hour we will have some typical Haitian finger foods (patés, banan pézés, grio, etc) and at our meal we’ll have the venue is offering but we’ll also add the typical red bean rice (ri poi kolé).  And my mom is making pikliz to put on the tables as well!  My FI LOVES pikliz. 

I’ve been to a wedding where they served soul-food and let me tell you, it was a HUGE success! So if you can find the right caterer, I would definitely encourage you to do that.  Depending on how it’s served, it won’t feel like you are eating BBQ food. 

Best of luck with planning everything.

Now I gotta go eat!!!!!

As appetizers, I wish you had akra or marinade on it. Some fritay. But yes, soul food is a definite nice addition.
