Real Wedding: Blue and Grey, Mirror Lake Lyceum Wedding, St Petesburg Catering
Posted on September 20th, 2013 - No Comments
Katherine and Matt said their “I Do’s” in the beautiful ballroom at Mirror Lake Lyceum, located in Downtown St. Petersburg. The couple selected a wonderful station style dinner for their guests including Gourmet Mac-n-Cheese Bar, Floribbean Surf and Turf, and NY Steakhouse Experience. Since Katherine and Matt are craft beer enthusiasts, Kevin assisted the couple in selecting beer and wine pairings for each food station! We had a pleasure working along side a team of amazing wedding professionals to make their wedding day as flawless and tasty as possible!
Top Five Favorite Things!
Adorable custom caricatures of the couple at each food station with the suggested beer and wine pairings
Beautiful floor length blue bridesmaid gowns

Katherine and Matt gave us a great review on Weddingwire:
“Kevin and his team at Good Food Catering were AMAZING! We had three action stations for a more social dinner style, and chose the Steakhouse Experience, Florribbean Surf and Turf, and the Gourmet Mac-n-Cheese bar as our menu. We also had several hand-passed hors d’oeuvres including Ahi Tuni and Mini Tacos. My husband and I are really into craft beer, so Kevin helped us choose beer and wine pairings specific to each menu item and even brought them to our menu tasting!
I also have to say how wonderful the chefs and servers were. Kevin’s team was friendly, engaging, quick to respond to requests and extremely professional. Everything was made to absolute perfection — our guests are still raving about it! I would absolutely recommend Good Food Catering!”
