We’re often asked to describe the look and feel of a custom-designed Kiss the Cook Catering wedding. A couple of years ago we contributed to a fall photo shoot along with renowned photographer Alicia Thurston. The resulting images capture the very best of our branded events, not to mention autumn’s gorgeous colours, refreshingly cool weather and potential as the perfect time of year to tie the knot. Of course, with the season inevitably comes a bountiful harvest of apples, which happened to provide bushels of creative inspiration to our team.
So much so that we built the theme of this wedding shoot around one of our favourite varietals, the delicious and crisp Pink Lady Apple. Our team worked with Alicia (who also took these amazing photos) and decided to customize a Pink Lady-inspired colour palette pulling from the apple’s natural pinks, light reds and peach tones, while developing a cocktail menu full of comfort food favourites. You can see a full list of the incredible team members that put the shoot together, as well as a full gallery of photos on the Wedding Chicks blog. Our favourite snaps are included in the gallery below.
Our menu for the shoot included applewood smoked candy bacon, a maple baked bean skillet with Bourbon BBQ glazed pork tenderloin–and to stick with our seasonal theme–caramelized apples and homemade corn bread. Our list of bite-sized edibles didn’t end there. We also prepared mini steak frites, truffle mac n’ cheese, mini beef meatballs with stout barbeque sauce and Japanese squid ink pasta salad with shrimp. We topped it off with chilled espresso and mini doughnuts for a light and energizing finish. The menu selection was designed for couples looking to combine traditional treats and modern cuisine on their wedding day–all served with our dramatic Kiss the Cook Catering flare!
