Real Hamby Weddings: Mallory & Tyler

This week, photographer, Paige Winn sent us some images from one of our April couples, Mallory & Tyler. You’ll see in the pictures below that during her walk down the aisle, Mallory’s veil flew away. A testament to her sweet personality – her and her dad laughed it off and continued on without it.

Mallory & Tyler’s 110-guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres, as well as an assortment of food stations. Pictured below: Salad Station featuring our Hamby Signature Salad, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette (as part of our Mini Meal Carving Station), Caprese Skewers, Fried Green Tomato Wedge with Pimento Cheese, and Braised Short Rib atop Polenta Cake with Tomato Jam.

Wishing this adorable couple a lifetime of happiness, even during life’s less than perfect moments. 😉

Real Hamby Weddings: Whitney & Cabell

Back in February, our clients, Whitney & Cabell tied the knot at Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church and celebrated at the lovely Hibernian Hall. Fast forward to this week, and we are thrilled to see their classic wedding grace A Lowcountry Wedding’s blog. It’s such a privilege to be featured in one of our favorite local publications. Even luckier for us, Jennings King supplied us with even more photos from the couple’s reception that showcase their diverse menu!


Their wedding weekend began with a traditional nod to Southern culture – a rustic, oyster roast of course! Hamby also had the pleasure of catering their relaxed rehearsal dinner. It was the perfect way to welcome friends and family to Charleston!

For their reception at Hiberian Hall, Whitney & Cabell had a variety of food stations set up to please all of their guests’ tastebuds. After cocktail hour, which included Mini Tomato Pies and Chicken Salad Sandwiches to name a few, the food stations were open for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. The stations included our traditional Mini Meal Carving Station, Mashed Potato Bar, Shrimp & Grits, and a Sweet & Savory Biscuit Bar.

We had the delight of catering Whitney’s sisters wedding in 2011, so it was such a sweet surprise when her family called for our services again. With 36 years of catering under our belt, we feel privileged when our families become repeat clients and those recommendations allow us to serve multiple generations. It is an honor to become an integral part of many family celebrations and parties in the Lowcountry. To see more details from Whitney & Cabell’s wedding, and all its frame-able moments, click here.

Real Hamby Weddings: Laura & Tripp

Our inbox just got a whole lot prettier thanks to photographer, Elisabeth Millay. She recently shared photos with us from a rehearsal dinner we catered back in March. The dinner took place at Society Hall with 70 of the couple’s closest friends and relatives.

Guests were greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres prior to the sit down dinner.  Small bites like our Thai Cucumber ‘Spi’ Roll with Chili Lime Vinaigrette and Cheddar and Bacon Grit Cakes were among the selections. After taking their seats, the guests enjoyed a refined menu featuring Lamb en Chemise, Parisian Potatoes and English Pea Ravioli that complimented the sophisticated setting. Along with the menu, Hamby Event Producer, Cacky Bastian, coordinated the elegant tableware through Snyder Rentals.

The guests finished up the evening by devouring our Praline Cups with Fresh Berries & White Chocolate Mousse. The perfect dessert to satisfy any sweet tooth! See below for images from the lovely affair. Our best wishes to the couple, Laura & Tripp.
