Early Fall Wedding in Stone Ridge, NY

posted by Mary Anne Erickson

Oct 05

The leaves hadn't started turning yet at the beginning of September, but the weather couldn't have been more delightful for this picture perfect wedding for Kate and Dan. They chose a former horse farm turned wedding venue called Tralee Farm for their big celebration, much to delight of their family and friends! The guests arrived from the ceremony at the church and were greeted to a backyard cocktail hour behind the historic stone house with glorious views of the surrounding hills.


Our staff assembling the appetizers.


Among the appetizers they chose were our Pulled Pork with Jalapeno Mayo on a homemade cheddar corn bread biscuit- a huge crowd pleaser.


Watermelon - feta Skewers, always refreshing!

Tuna Tartare on Cucumber Rounds


Lobster Rolls - enormous crowd pleaser!

As the cocktail hour drew to a close the guests wandered down the lane to the big barn and were greeted at the entrance by this clever display of flip flops in every size - in case those pumps were not appropriate for dancing on a barn floor!! Incredibly thoughtful!


Another fun touch was this creative use of an old ladder for the menu display at the beginning of the buffet! All the guests were delighted to enjoy our BBQ menu (more pics at http://www.pinterest.com/bistrotogo/bistro-to-go-bbq/).


Caesar Salad
Black Bean Corn Salad with mixed pepper confetti
Old Fashioned Potato Salad
Roasted Summer Vegetables
“Meaty” and Saucy St. Louis-style Ribs
Bistro Steak, pepper and herb grilled
Sesame Salmon, Thai barbeque sauce
Our Signature Apple-radish Slaw
Homemade Corn Bread

The bride and groom swirled and swayed for the first dance as everyone cheered them on.......


........and they all danced the night away! We wish Kate and Dan many years of happiness together!

"Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the separate cocktail hours/canapé options that we decided on at the Onteora Mountain House worked out so well! The adults loved the more sophisticated tastes as well as the crowd pleasers that the kids wolfed down – in fact, I saw more than a few adults raid the kids’ cocktail hour and walk away with big plates of pigs, coconut shrimp and those YUMMY pulled pork cups! Of course, you KNOW I adore the chicken meatballs, etc…the smoked trout on blini is now my new favorite!"

"As the step-father of the Bride, Katharine I admit I may be just a little less than objective, but since everyone else thought it as an absolutely incredible romantic moment made even more elegant and delicious through Mary Anne's great eye for detail design and Richards great magical hands in his kitchen. The staff works like crazy and dig the gig! Thanks, Bistro "

"Thank you so much for the delicious rehearsal dinner and wedding food. I enjoyed all of it but was especially thrilled to eat the steaming hot mashed potatoes! I and many of the guests, really enjoyed the collard greens and jambalaya. We would have loved to have taken the extras home to enjoy later. Many many thanks for all of your work to make the wedding a memorable event."

"Thank you so much. The party was fantastic. We had perfect weather. Everyone raved about the food. It was delicious. Michael and Megan were so wonderful in the way they arranged everything and their sense of timing. I could really enjoy the party too. I would be delighted to give a recommendation any time but you probably don't need it since you have such a wonderful reputation. Please thank Richard and all your staff who prepared the food."

"A belated thanks for the wonderful food and energetic helpers who made my party such a success. Despite the rain, everything worked out perfectly and the food was much admired. I am glad we decided on the fillet of beef, which disappeared almost immediately, despite the professed vegetarians amongst us. But it was all delicious: the appetizers were beautifully displayed, thanks to the skills of the "ladies", the cakes were scrumptious , and I am sure you have acquired new fans."

"Rain and shine it was a great wedding. The food was scrumptuous and everything looked beautiful. When you said I didn't need a wedding planner you were absolutely correct. Your personal services made the party a success. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything."

"Matt and I just got back from Italy on Sunday night, and of course we spent much of the time on our honeymoon reminiscing about the wedding and reception. When we got back,we were inundated with notes and calls from our guests, praising every aspect of the event, and in many cases they complimented the food, the catering, your staff. It all ran so smoothly and everyone had such a great time, including Matt and myself. I just wanted to let you know that you deserve huge thanks for helping make our wedding such a success. We can't thank you enough and we are so grateful for your professionalism, calm and culinary expertise. Each characteristic contributed immensely to what in hindsight we both agree was the happiest moment of our lives."

"I can't thank you enough for your help in making my niece's engagement celebration so memorable. From the moment you helped us plan the menu until the last dish was carefully washed and put away your professionalism has been unsurpassed. The guests raved about the food, the servers were efficient and hard-working, and every detail was impeccable. We will never try another caterer...because your service is the ultimate!"

"The party was spectacular - your food, staff and service were vital to it! We were very pleased with your contribution to the event - thank you so much. The food was beautiful and perfect, the staff were fantastic. The torrential rain and floods added crazy and extremely muddy elements to the night and you were all so amazing through this. Thanks for keeping it dry and together. We couldn't have done this without each of you. We wish you many more fun and successful parties this season!"
