When it is a small wedding party or just a couple, we will
usually make a reservation for you at one of the finer restaurants. Another
option is a Beachside
Chef. This is very romantic and elegant. We even have couples that just
linger after sunset and have a romantic picnic for two. This is your day
and it should be the way you want it. Once we start planning we will be
happy to have menus sent to you.
If we are planning your wedding and you have less than 75 guests, our fee for planning a private reception is $500.00. If you just want our help to plan the reception only, our fee is $500. We also charge $75.00 per hour to be onsite at the reception and this is a requirement at any private home. This does include the set up and breakdown of all rentals. We do require a $500 non-refundable deposit to begin planning a private catered reception. 50% of the total balance will be due 30 days prior to your arrival. These payments must be by check. For restaurant receptions a credit card deposit is all you need.
Some restaurants have areas that they use for small wedding receptions. Once we know are in the planning stages we can advise you on your best options. Some restauranats you can even buy out for the evening. If you have 75 to 100 people this is usually affordable. It is also a good option to have a coordinator for a least the first 2 hours of a hotel reception as well. You need someone there to make sure everything goes smoothly and to announce your Best Man's Toast and your First Dance. Usually 2 hours of coverage is enough. The fee for this would be $75 per hour.
When you use a Restaurant for your reception, we can arrange for table centerpieces to match your wedding flowers. You might also want to consider having the Photographer or Videographer be there for the action part of the reception as well. Our Photographers will do the reception time for $100 per extra hour of coverage if you have a large enough photo package. Some restaurants we use for receptions do allow us to bring in DJs and even live musicians or a Hula Show.
For larger weddings and receptions with more than 75 guests, we will require a non refundable deposit of $1000 and our fee will be a service charge of 15% added on to the entire cost of the wedding and reception. 50% of the charges will be due 3 months in advance of your wedding date. The entire balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding date. For groups with a lot of small children attending we recommend a babysitter. You will need someone at the reception to keep an eye on the children. We have found that when guests begin to drink they sometimes forget their responsibilities. With the ocean so close by most locations, the last thing we want is for anyone to be hurt! We will be happy to refer you to someone!
|To the right you see a table setting for approximately 16 people! If you have a small group this is a great way for everyone to sit together. This is the type of wooden chairs we usually use for weddings and receptions.|
Great for dessert and fun!
Price: $200 plus $5.00 per person.
This is a pretty cute fruit appetizer! Serves about 30 people. It tastes and looks delicious. Some can even be dipped in Chocolate if you wish.
