Burgers at a Wedding?
Who doesn't like a great hamburger? I sometimes plan my trips around In and Out locations. So why not serve them at a wedding? That is exactly what a June bride and groom thought. I created a deluxe burger menu (see below) on request for the couple to ponder. The bride and groom even designed their own signature burgers for their guests.
The reception setting was a plain Jane old barn in Solvang with stunning vineyard and mountain views. With the help of LBPS Events and The Tent Merchant, we transformed the site into a charming, country wedding. We had to evict the bats and barn swallows for the evening and set up a field kitchen in back. LBPS did some lighting magic and wall coverings to soften the raw wood look.
Dining in the Barn
We "super sized" the burger menu. I had Deitmar, chef/partner at D'Angelos bakery, prepare cibatta buns as well as poppyseed and regular buns for the carb foil. We offered black angus, organic turkey and grilled vegetable burgers along with yams and potato fries. The onion rings were my friend chef james Sly's Skinny Onion Rings, crisp and delicious. The menu worked perfectly for the venue and the guests enjoyed some upscale comfort food, including a filet mignon chili! Dinner was a smashing success and we finished the supper with ice cream cones and a nod to Solvang with ebelskivers, those apple-filled pancakes.
