Jackie + Siggy: The Menu

Being the food lover that i am, i couldn't help but share the menu for Jackie and Siggy's wedding. Jackie and Siggy carefully selected each and every item on the menu to reflect their favorite foods, Donna Hay style (also a fellow Aussie).

They were torn between the formality of a plated meal and the relaxed atmosphere that food stations would provide, so we teamed up with Chef Peter Foster of Memoirs Hawaii and combined both styles of service to create just the right mood for this very special meal.

After a sunset cocktail hour with mouth watering butler passed canapes and an open bar, guests were seated for a short and sweet welcome and introduction of the newlyweds, who took to the dance floor for a fun and spirited (and cleverly choreographed) first dance to "You Should Be Dancing" by the Bee Gees.

Guests enjoyed gorgeously plated appetizer and salad courses, then were invited to explore food stations set around the perimeter of the dining marquee. Each food station offered a complete dinner plate, but we watched guests request plates from every station, then return for seconds, even thirds!

Happily full, guests took turns toasting the couple and their marriage, then spent the rest of the night on the dance floor working it all off!
