Santa Barbara Historical Museum Wedding

We were honored to help Samantha and Brooks plan their lovely wedding and they were such a joy to work with. They were surrounded by so much love coming from their closest friends and family! We would like to extend a huge thank you and to the photographer: Ashleigh Taylor. She captured every detail and emotion perfectly! We would also like to share that we worked with an incredible new local company, Simply Bouquets. They are perfect for the DIY bride who would like to create her own centerpieces, and then Jennifer & Claudia create the incredible bouquets, and boutonnières! Such a genius idea and the bride was so thrilled with their work!  Pure Joy Catering did a wonderful job working with the spanish themed menu and their displays were simply perfect.

Out and About: in Los Angeles- Room Forty at Vibiana

Last week we were honored to be invited to a spectacular edible auditing luncheon with one of LA's hottest new culinary operations. The event was hosted by Room Forty, a catering company without walls... And that is exactly what they are. We were so impressed with each of 9 courses we were served. The flavors, the presentation and the service was impeccable. We look forward to finding an opportunity to work together with these culinary masterminds.
The location for this event was The Vibiana, a historic Los Angeles cathedral that has been transformed into an wedding, event, and preforming arts venue. It is so rich with history and the detailing in the architecture made it incredibly unique. Our minds were overloaded with ideas for a future wedding here. 
Bibb lettuces, pickled market vegetables, chèvre, house candied nuts, and a blonde raisin vinaigrette.
Heirloom tomatoes, house smoked burrata, balsamic caviar, with an opal basil vinaigrette.
Jidori chicken confit, brussel spouts, fingerling potato, and a white bean cassoulet.
Covina seabass, smoked soba noodle nest, dashi broth, and pho salad.
"Smokey Bobby Burns" bowmore legend whisky, carpano antica, beef jerky, benedictine.
Served with Prime braised beef short ribs, parsley root puree, baby vegetable, and braising jus.
