CATHERINE & SAM: THE WEDDING!

Have you ever heard of Hatfield’s Restaurant in Los Angeles? Before working with Catherine and Sam on their wedding last October, I hadn’t. But once I was introduced to this extraordinary restaurant by Catherine and Sam, I was simply blown away!

Planning Catherine and Sam’s wedding was a bit more interesting due to one factor: they both lived in Hong Kong. With the challenge of planning a wedding and two receptions from abroad, they contacted us to assist them with their planning. The rest, as they say, was history. The atmosphere during the evening was a food lover’s affair, accented with pops of deep oranges and calming sage greens. Centerpieces were decorated with fresh oranges, tangerines, and kumquats in beautifully matching ceramic dishes.

True foodies at heart, Catherine and Sam selected the well-thought-out menu for the entire evening. It was a four-course meal of absolute bliss that included a starter, the main entrée, a cheese & wine pairing, and dessert. The reaction from the guests? A very appetizing and fulfilling meal that had them going up to the main kitchen window to toast the chefs for such an amazing dinner.

The idea of a traditional dessert station was replaced with a fruit and nut station that was both unique and fun. Oh! Did I mention their wedding cake was a four-tiered beauty constructed of sheep, goat, and cow cheese wheels? It was one cake I truly enjoyed decorating.

Catherine and Sam, thank you so much for allowing myself and CCL Weddings & Events to be a part of your special day. It was such joy to get to know you both and for introducing a restaurant that I could happily say is my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. I wish you both the very best back homein Hong Kong and hope to see you in L.A. soon! Many CONGRATS!
