Artcle: S & S wedding || our caterers

we might as well deem july the month of wedding appointments because in addition to picking out our wedding bands and taking out engagement photos two weeks ago, we also had our tasting with our wedding caterers.

since our wedding venue requires you use one of their four recommended caterers, it was nice to have our options already narrowed down when we went to make the selection. due to my laundry list of dietary restrictions, S took the lead on picking our caterer (you’re welcome, future wedding guests). and let me tell you, he took the job seriously. we perused each and every one of the menus and assessed each vendor’s overall vibe and after a thorough analysis, we ultimately opted for the wild thyme company for its hearty and unique offerings and rustic vibe.

having been a guest of many lovely nuptials over the past decade, i’ve enjoyed sit-down dinners, stood in buffet lines, and experienced many options that landed somewhere in between. but after witnessing the success and ease of family-style service at two recent weddings S and i attended together, we knew we wanted to replicate a similar experience on our own day. so once we knew how we wanted to serve our guests on our big day, we worked backward from there to determine just what we would be serving them.

last friday afternoon, as instructed, we came HUNGRY and ready to taste. we arrived to find two place settings with our tasting menu printed and draped across. i’ll admit, having the menu there was super helpful since it had been a few months since we had made our selections (i honestly had kind of forgotten what we had picked!).

first up were our hors d’oeuvres. we had selected five from a list of 50 or so to tray pass during cocktail hour. while i don’t want to completely spoil the spread for our guests,  i will say my favorite pick comes bacon-wrapped ;). since most of them also involve cheese and/or gluten, i entrusted S with the taste testing and i’m happy to report that all passed with flying colors.

next up was our main meal. when the chef brought everything out on a platter (as shown above), i was immediately taken with the gorgeous presentation. it’s true what they say, you really do eat with your eyes first! while i nibbled on the lemon-thyme roasted salmon and roasted vegetables, my favorite part of the meal was the delicious golden beet salad with mixed greens, humboldt fog cheese, oil cured olives, pistachios, oranges, and a pomegranate vinaigrette. i loved how unexpected but harmonious all of the flavors were.

last but certainly not least was our dessert. we knew we wanted to offer our guests a sweet treat other than cake so after some brainstorming, we landed on doing a brownie bar which we are particularly excited about. the chef prepared four types of brownies for us to sample, including a snickerdoodle blondie and my personal favorite, a reese’s peanut butter brownie which i essentially deconstructed to get to the whole peanut butter cup that was baked inside the batter. i have a feeling the chocolatey confections will go over big because let’s be honest, who can resist a gooey brownie?

the whole experience was so quick and easy and assured any lingering doubts of whether or not we had chosen the right caterer for the job. i feel really confident that our guests are going to leave well fed and happy!

What people are saying about us at The Wild Thyme Company!

  • "I don't know where to start. The setup and decor was trendy and chic and the colors made my beach theme come alive. The food, omg, the presentation was as fabulous as the taste. A delicious combination and array of favors. The staff was on time, professional, accommodating, and Alexis is the sweetest, most hard working girl on the planet. The compliments keep flooding in and Duke & I are basking in the afterglow. Kudos to you and The Wild Thyme Company for creating such a wonderful event.
    Thank you for everything. Can't get the smile off my face."

  • “What a great presentation you two did. My clients loved it. I have to say, I felt everything was very tasty, great flavors. Thank you again, it was a pleasure.”

    Maria Kamon, MK Productions Meeting & Event Planning
  • “Hands down the best caterer in San Diego. We've used them for business lunches (AMAZING) and I recently attended a team building cook off in their kitchen. Their ability to put zip and flair into something as typically boring as a boxed lunch is simply unbelievable. I love Wild Thyme's commitment to local, sustainable foods. Most importantly, their staff is out of this world! All in all, a 5-star company with the quirky idea that even something as simple as my work lunch is important!”

    Sam Knox, Clever Advantage
  • Wild Thyme catered and helped me plan my wife's birthday this year and it was a huge success. The food was fantastic, presentation was elegant, and the serving staff was prompt, courteous, and professional. My wife was thrilled, her friends were thrilled, we had all of the fun without any of the stress. With Wild Thyme we raised the bar for the home parties we'll host and attend. Very highly recommended.”

    Andrew Crossan, Private Party Client
  • "Wild Thyme is rock solid. Catered our wedding for 185 guests on the 4th of July. This was at our home on a major holiday, so the logistics were challenging. They set up a kitchen with 14 staff / bartenders / servers in our garage, and made it all look easy. Lots of great items on our menu but the short ribs with mashed potatoes and asparagus was my personal fave."

    Justin W., Wedding Party Client
  • "My wife and I used Wild Thyme for our wedding on March 26, 2016 and we were very pleased with their food and service. The servers took excellent care of everyone and many of our guests made a point of telling us how amazing the food was! We are both foodies and the food was really wonderful!! We would highly recommend them."

    Marty C., Wedding Party Client
  • "If there were 10 stars available, that would still be too few. Wild Thyme catered our daughter and future son in law's engagement party. The food was beyond expectation, the presentation was simple and elegant and the servers were fabulous. The afternoon was flawless and the guests continually commented about the food, selection and excellence of service. As the event concluded, the staff invisibly gathered the tables and other items and departed all without interruption the ongoing party. Thank you to Jeanna and the entire Wild Thyme staff. We were so impressed that we hope to have you back for the farewell breakfast following the wedding.."
