What are some common mistakes you see couples make while preparing for their wedding?
Making plans before setting a budget, or not having a budget in mind can bring a lot of stress!
If you could give couples one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don't be afraid to ask for exactly what you want, but keep an open mind. There may be some things that you haven't thought of that might make your day extra special! Make sure to explore a multitude of possibilities until you find what you are looking for.
What don't couples know about your business category that they need to know?
Coffee catering, at least the way we do it, is very new. Most people think of coffee being dispensed from an urn at a self-serve station as the only way to incorporate it as part of your event. We take a different approach. We provide an all-inclusive service with trained and certified baristas with a full coffee menu, including special drinks that you may have never heard of! Like our mixed berry cold brew mojito! It’s also a great alcohol alternative!
What is one question a couple should be asking that they don't know to ask (specific to you or in the general planning sense)?
Our set-up is unique and versatile! Ask us about the different ways we can customize our set-up to fit your big day. If you are a coffee enthusiast, you may be interested in our wedding favors, donut wall, backdrop, or personalized coffee sleeves! We can also design a menu to fit the theme of your wedding, whether that is including coffee mojitos or cotton candy pour-overs (yes, that’s a thing!)! We want to make your day as unique and special as can be.
What sets you apart from other vendors in your field?
We provide an all-inclusive coffee service, using an open bar model. Your guests can come up and order as they would at a coffee shop, but they will probably want to try something that they've never had before like our signature Turkish coffee or one of our specialty coffee beverages.
Tell us about your favorite wedding that you've been part of.
Our favorite wedding was a traditional Indian wedding that we catered recently. It was a very special, colorful, and lively wedding with beautiful décor. Our set up, backdrop, and menu reflected the theme of the wedding. We even made a traditional Kashmiri chai at the request of our clients, something that we had never done before! The crowd loved it!
