We have this situation too.  Most caterers are prepared for this and have done it before. Many will bring their own cooking and warming equipment.  They may require you to rent some of those things, and possibly a tent for them (usually 15X15, unless they are cooking under the big tent you are using for the guests)  It’s not the easiest or least expensive thing, but it’s definately not a new concept. Start talking to different caterers and see how much experience they have with this.

We’re having an outdoor wedding in VA (about 2 hours outside of DC) at a private home and the catering is just being delivered with warming trays. 

Re: vinyards, I’ve never heard of Running Hare but have you looked into Linganore? It’s in Frederick (so probably just an hour away from Silver Spring- it’s 45 minutes from me but I’m a bit north of you). I’m not sure what there pricing is like but I know they have good wine! Here’s a link: http://www.linganorewines.com/facilityrental.html

  • Wedding: October 2010

We are doing our wedding at Running Hare Vineyard. It is stunning and the wine is very, very good!!! Have you seen the new building? It was designed with brides and weddings in mind. I don’t think (could be wrong) they do outdoor receptions anymore. The new building has a catering kitchen, you can bring your own beer and liquor but you have to serve thier wine.


We visited Linganore. We are having an October wedding so we wanted to use the indoor space for the reception which we didn’t care for. I think the outdoor space was very nice. They have a pavilion and lots of land you could put a tent on.
