Many of our wedding clients begin their event with a social hour where they offer a selection 2-4 tapas and/or our graze board followed by a salad course and paella. Paella is an incredible celebration food. It is very flavorful, allergen friendly (gluten, dairy, and nut free) and loved by everyone. Although we are unable to offer complete bar service, we offer a selection of agua frescas (infused fruit waters) that are light, flavorful and refreshing that can be offered as a N/A or spiked with champagne or a spirit of your choice.
Check out our Wedding Catering Menu HERE. When you are considering tapas we recommend ordering 2-4 different items for 80% of the total guest count per item.If only a graze board is offered, it should be ordered for 90% of the total guest count. If a graze board is offered in addition to the tapas, we recommend ordering it for 60% of the total guest count.
Walk up service. This service method is commonly used for more casual receptions such as a back yard wedding or a park pavilion setting. It is the most cost effective option. Tapas are placed on tables or stations for the guests to self-serve. Salads are typically picked up with the paella at the same time. Salads can also be picked up independently. For walk-up service, a minimum of one server per 30 guests is required.
Family style service. This service method can be use for either casual or formal receptions. Tapas are placed on tables or stations for the guests to self-serve. Salads are preset on the table before your guests are seated. A double plating method is used where the salad plate is place on top of the dinner plate. When the salad plates are removed, the guest has a clean plate for paella. Paella is delivered to the tables in 15” paella pans with serving utensil (serves 8). Guests serve themselves. Paella is replenished when necessary. For family style service, a minimum of one server per 20 guests is required.
Full service. This service method is used for more formal receptions. Tapas can either be tray passed or placed on stations for the guest to self-serve. Salad are individually plated and brought to the table after the guest is seated. Once salads are cleared, paella will be individually plated and brought to the table. For full service, a minimum of one server per 15 guests.
