Dawn and I just got back from the Callahan’s Catering Food Tasting and Vendor Showcase. It is an event open to all brides who are looking to book their catering services and also to showcase the St. Andrews reception hall. It was also a way for us wedding vendors to meet and great the brides.
Dawn and I had a table next to two of our wedding colleagues C’est Le Vie Cakes and Arlene’s Wedding Cakes both of whom make yummy cakes and cup cakes and “cake in a cup” (that is my funny term for the samples of cake served in a cup, LOL). It is so very nice to have friends that can bake! Well, not for our waistlines that is, but it sure is for our taste buds!
There were also several DJ there as well, but good thing they all took turns talking otherwise it would have been quite hard to even hear yourself think. The Hitman DJ, D & T Productions, In-Tune DJ Service, and Purrfect Occasions DJ were all there and all have good voices and music. They did an interesting thing at the showcase, they had all the DJs divy up the vendors names and they all took turns introducing us to the crowd. All the vendors were asked to write up an introduction/commercial for the DJs to read as they were announcing them. Here is what we had read:
“Digital Mitchell Event Photography; wedding photography that is… fun…exciting and… you! The husband and wife team of Michael and Dawn Mitchell will capture the real you (or, at least, the “you” you want to be) on your wedding day, the most memorable day of your life. They will be engaging and fun with you, and your guests, throughout the entire day so that on that most hectic day, your best expressions will always be captured for you to enjoy for the rest of your life.
Not only do Michael and Dawn want to be your photographers, they also want to be your friends. And to start off that friendship they like doing engagement sessions so that everyone can get to know each other better. By getting to know each other, your wedding photographers are NOT just photographers at your wedding, they are Michael and Dawn with cameras at your wedding, capturing all your special moments.
Find us on Facebook or at our website, both are Digital Mitchell.”
When Dawn and I walked into the room, as we got to the center of the room, I began to twirl Dawn and we both waved to the crowd. You have to make an entrance ya know!
It was a short event, only a couple of hours, but everyone got to eat their fill of the food that Callahan’s had to sample, I love their mashed potatoes and gravy! They served it buffet style with two rows so the crowd went through quickly on either side. They do offer a wide variety of choices, from posta, to chicken to Polish sausage and noodles and fish, but I don’t like fish so I did not have any!
Everyone attending had a chance to win a prize from each of the vendors; ours, of course, was a portrait session with some prints. Not sure what the others offered, as I got to talking with some brides-to-be.
We ended up meetings many lovely couples, and Dawn and I hope to be meeting with them soon!
