Hamby Happenings: Get Hitched

Hamby Catering & Events was honored to be involved in the Get Hitched event, an LGBT wedding showcase – the first of its kind in Charleston. The event featured multiple event companies that support and welcome the legalization of same sex marriage in South Carolina. Event organizers hoped to connect LGBT couples with vendors who would openly embrace their business.

Hamby’s philosophy is to make each couple comfortable, and to provide a fun environment for them to be able to plan their big day in a stress-free way.

The showcase was held at Memminger Auditorium and allowed for an open air vibe that gave attendees freedom to mix and mingle (and of course snack on some Hamby small bites!). Guests enjoyed a variety of our most popular items including, Mini Tomato Pies, Beef Crostinis, Cucumber Spi Rolls, Hamby Tea Sandwiches, Sweet Potato Biscuits with Carolina Pit Ham, Yucca Root Chips with Edamamus, Cheese Straws and an assortment of Tarts (think Pecan Pie, Key Lime Pie and Banana Pudding!).

Our booth gave guests a comfortable space to relax and chat with our Event Producers about their wedding day vision.

Hamby Team

The day was a huge success. Our team had a blast meeting prospective clients and being a part of such an inclusive event. We couldn’t be prouder of our very own Ryan Mckenzie, who served on the Get Hitched committee (also pictured, Managing Director, Candice Wigfield and Customer Relations Representative, Sarah Ann Nunn).

Our team had the opportunity to speak to Charleston City Paper prior to the event about Hamby’s sponsorship, you can read the article here.

Hamby Happenings: Charleston Fashion Week

What a weekend for our Hamby staff! We first had the pleasure of providing catering for the 12th Annual Historical Charleston Foundation’s Antique Show. We’ve been involved with this event for years, and always love providing the food.

After the wonderful antique show, we began prep for the 8th Annual Charleston Fashion Week. Like past years, we were involved in Saturday’s Spring Bridal Show – an event we love participating in. The runway first saw styles from our amazing local dress boutiques including, Birdsong & One Love DesignWhiteKate McDonaldModern Trousseau CharlestonSouthern Protocol, & Gown Boutique of Charleston. Before the show and during intermission, guests were able to mingle among the tables and receive move information to help assist in the planning of their big day! We loved chatting with so many wedding vendors and brides over our homemade Hamby favorites.

Guests enjoyed sipping champagne and chatting over our Carolina Sushi, Pee Wee Potato with Housemade Pimento Cheese, Sirloin & Rice Stuffed Pepperdew, and Yucca Root Chip with Edamamus.

Our tasty White Truffle and Black Pepper Popcorn was a fun take-home treat for each guest that stopped by. After intermission, Amsale presented their new Spring line. We loved the ethereal, flowy designs, along with their intricate detailing and low-backs.

We always enjoy being out in public, interacting with fellow Charlestonians, and this weekend was no different. We’re looking forward to serving both of these events again in 2016!

Charleston Bridal Show 2010

The Charleston Bridal Show

We were so privileged to host the 2010 Charleston Bridal Show at the Gaillard Auditorium last Sunday, July 11, 2010

The booths echoed with the pitter patter of brides to be

With the grooms tagging along saying, “Why Lord? Why me?”

Dashing from booth to booth to make plans for the special day

There’s so much to see and do at each and every display

There’s no better place to be than The Charleston Bridal Show

To find out what you need, who to call, what to know

From styling your hair to picking your dress

Picking linens, tables and chairs, my what a mess

But when the brides need to know where to go for their food

There was no competition…not to be arrogant or rude

The Hamby booth was adorned with bright linens that caught your eye

And Southern appetizers that no one could pass by

The Wedding Cakes towered high to the sky

While little Charleston Tea Cakes were layered tier high

With the reputation that proceeds

We at Hamby have just what a bride needs

To make this day of all days

One to remember for always
