Brick Lane Catering at the Gadsden House

By July 12, 2016Uncategorized

Brick Lane Catering had the wonderful pleasure of catering a recent wedding at the Gadsden House.  This beautiful new venue is a vision of Charleston with it’s manicured courtyard, long wide porches, and the detailed architecture that can be found inside and out.  We have had the pleasure of catering at the Gadsden House before and were excited to be back for such a special wedding.

Since the wedding was in July, the Bride and Groom decided to focus on bright summer colors and a flow that allowed guests to be inside and out.  The ceremony was held outside and after, while guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the second floor, Kathleen Shuler (wedding planner at the Gadsden House), flipped the ceremony site into the reception space.  Their bar displayed a beautiful floral display and a basket of flip flops so guests could kick off their shoes for something more comfortable.  During dinner Brick Lane offered Small Plate Stations so guests could mingle and enjoy the inside of the house or the courtyard.  With two stations inside and one out on the porch, it offered the best flow for guests.  The highlight was the Taco Station on the porch where the bright summer colors popped next to the Open Faced Taco designed by Chef/Owner Charlie Giordano.  Take a look at the menu and a few photos:
