My brother and his fiance are doing this but on a Saturday (the day before you actually LOL). The venue is super intimate and romantic but will not accommodate a lot of people. They are renting out a loft space at night after the brunch/wedding so they can invite additional family to party- which is why they are doing a Saturday.

They will have mimosas, bellinis, beer, wine, and bloody marys, coffee and non alcoholic beverages as the drink choices.

The brunch itself is veryyy nice. They have sandwiches, omelettes, salads, and some entree style breakfast and the food is amazing. We went there for brunch once before and it was soooo good! We’re all really looking forward to it.

Here’s a sample brunch menu. It changes often and they will custom create their menu with the chef for the wedding.

My dream was a Sunday garden brunch wedding in May, but we ended up with a Saturday hotel brunch wedding in September! I’m still excited about it, I think it will be nice, and weather-proof, which is an issue around here. I can’t tell you too much yet since it hasn’t happened yet, but I’m happy other Bees are doing this too! Recently we’ve realized we do have to add a few more lunch dishes in, originally it was more breakfast based, but by the time noon rolls around people will probably want more lunch items, my SIL pointed out. I’m not willing to let all breakfast items go though!

I’m having one on 2/28!

We’re having a simple (but yummy!) menu. We’ll have lots and lots of hors d’ouvres, a waffle bar, pastries, quiche, a prime rib carving station with cranberry rolls, fresh fruit, bacon and sausage, bagels, and I’m SO excited about the gourmet coffee bar, chocolate filled croissants, an assortment of cakes and pies, and the mimosa/wine/beer open bar! 🙂

One of our catering options I would have loved to have, but it didn’t work out, had the most amazing breakfast options. In addtion, they also had three made to order stations:

Belgian Waffle Station<br />Chef-stationed, custom Belgian Waffles made to order<br />Choose up to five toppings: Butter, Maple Syrup, Powdered Sugar, Whipped<br />Cream, Chocolate Chips and Blueberry, Apple or Cherry Topping. Includes<br />choice of Breakfast Meat and Fresh Seasonal Fruit Salad

Omelet Station<br />Chef-stationed, custom Omelets made to order including the following<br />toppings: Shredded Cheddar, Mozzarella, Provolone and Feta Cheeses, Diced<br />Fresh Tomatoes, Sautéed Peppers and Onions, Sautéed Mushrooms, Sliced<br />Scallions, Bacon and Diced Honey Ham. Includes Mini Bagels, Butter, Cream<br />Cheese and Preserves

Made-To-Order Smoothie Station<br />(Requires 25 person minimum) Choose up to 3 of the following options:<br />• Strawberry • Pineapple • Banana • Mango<br />• Blueberry • Raspberry • Chocolate

Don’t those sound delicious? I’m sad we can’t use them, our venue has required caterers. (But the above is from Totally Cooked, Inc. in Ohio, for credit purposes!)
