Tapas style, if you will! We found a fantastic caterer that was willing to run with our vision, Steve Gemperlein of Stephen’s Kitchen & Catering. He did everything for us from our rehearsal dinner (a laid-back BBQ buffet), appetizers at cocktail hour, our amazing small-plates style dinner, setting up our cookie table with cookies made by friends and family, and an ice cream bar to finish it off for dessert!
