BlogNicole + Kevin @ The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel – 8.15.15

September 9, 2015 | News

Well it was another awesome wedding at the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel.  Nicole was a beautiful bride and the reception was great.  I first met Nicole and Kevin in late 2014 about catering their wedding in 2015.  I used to meet all my potential clients at the Starbucks on Victory Drive and Skidaway Rd. in Savannah.  My kitchen was being built out at the time so I had to meet all of my clients there and treat them to a cup of coffee.

We hit it off from the moment we met.  Nicole even knew one of my best friends mother Jan Yarbrough who she was working with while doing her intership at a local Savannah law office.  These type of things always make it easier to break the ice and let me sit back and be myself.  Long story short, they liked the potential menu that I presented to them and they booked a tasting.

Again, since my kitchen was still being built out at the time of Nicole and Kevin’s tasting, I had to welcome them and their family into my home.  It was a pleasure meeting Nicole’s parents and Kevin’s mother.  Nicole’s father Mike and my wife hit if off as they are in the same profession.  Mike was awesome to work with and was very easy to communicate with.

About two weeks before the big day Mike called me and asked me if I could do him a favor at the reception.  I simply told him “no problem, what’s the favor?”  He then explained to me in detail that he and his wife Vivian had just gotten back from a European cruise where they witnessed their butler do a champagne sabrage.  “Is this something you can do for Nicole + Kevin during their champagne toasts?”  Thinking quick on my feet, or maybe not thinking at all, I said “sure!”  As soon as I hung up the phone I thought to myself, “dang, I haven’t even attempted to do one of these things since culinary school, which was 11 years ago.”  Anyway, a couple of YOUTUBE videos and some practice on my back deck it went off without a hitch.  It was actually pretty cool, I even think a guest gave me a fist bump as I was walking back to the kitchen.

All in all, great wedding, great reception and most of all GREAT people!  We wish Nicole and Kevin nothing but the best!  We would also like to give our best to Mike and Vivian, you guys were a pleasure to work with!

*Shout out to Vanessa Saturday @ Spectacular Saturdays, she made the place beautiful and is always great to work with!*
