Megget, SC Summertime Wedding Gorgeousness

When Virgil Bunao, Squeeze OnSite, Snyder Rentals and Tiger Lily are involved, you know there’s wedding gorgeousness sure to ensue.

Alison + Ben were married in July 2013 at Alison’s family home in Megget, South Carolina. Their love for each other coupled with the feelings of excitement, love and support of their friends and family were evident throughout the day. Hamby’s Megan Renszel served as Event Producer for this lovely wedding, and guests enjoyed a choice of the following entrees for the seated serve dinner.

Entree Selections

  • Seared Grouper with Toy Box Tomato & Caper Relish, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, Grilled Broccolini
  • Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits
  • Roasted Chicken with Tarragon Butter, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, Fava Beans, Shitake Mushrooms

Please visit Virgil Bunao’s blog posting for more glorious images from this wedding. The images of Alison seeing her father for the first time are priceless…and they made me cry!

Cheers!

Intimate Seated Serve Birthday Dinner

Some of our favorite events to cater are those that allow us to create, cook and serve a restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of a client’s home for their family and friends. Recently, Executive Chef John Brunski and Culinary Liason Amanda Felix served a three-course dinner for a birthday girl and her guests. Guests then ended the meal with the sweet treat of birthday cake!

Behind the Scenes…Food Photo Shoot

The Hamby team recently had the pleasure of working with Matthew Scott to capture some amazing images of many new culinary offerings that will be featured on  Hamby menus rolling out in the next few weeks. We captured a little bit of everything, including hors d’oeuvres, display stations, interactive stations, plated dinners, mini meals & dessert offerings.

If you’ve never been part of a food-specific photo shoot, it is quite an amazing experience to prepare the food items, stage each vignette and really tell a story with each shot. Our hope is that our potential and current clients can easily grasp how Hamby food items can truly enhance their event in a cohesive fashion, accenting the mood and decor of that particular occasion.

Another awesome part of this photo shoot was immediately being able to see the images on the computer screen about 10 seconds after they were captured. Talk about instant gratification!

The purpose of this post is to give you a behind the scenes look at the progression of our daylong shoot. Up first, let’s talk desserts, particularly our praline baskets with seasonal berries and a strawberry mousse.

The studio of Matthew Scott. Where the magic happens!

Rustic, sleek, modern, classic. Props for each look & feel.

Praline baskets with fresh berries. "Posing" the tartlets & making sure their "smiles" are perfect!

These desserts look lonely under the lights, right? But, wait...

Voila! These pretties are ready for your next wedding or gala!

Perhaps a seated dinner is more in line with your next event? And seafood is a must? Check out this next progression of images for the plated grouper dish! It is said that you eat with your eyes first. That being said, eat up!

Amazing the difference between an amateur (me) & a professional (Matt), right? Eat up!

Stay tuned for part 2 of behind the scenes!
