Christina + Michael, Family Residence

Clarksburg, MA


Christy and Mike decided to get married at Christy’s family home in Clarksburg, MA. Not only was it important since the antique farmhouse had been in her family for generations, but it was also where the couple met. A large buffet meal was set up in the dining room with guests dining in various rooms, in a tent and on the porch of the property giving the feel of a very large Thanksgiving dinner.

Christy could not eat wheat and she worked with our chefs to plan a gluten-free meal and was thrilled with the outcome. We began the day with the guests taking a school bus ride to the property for a gorgeous ceremony. For cocktail hour, in addition to the fabulous drinks, we served the following hors d’oeuvres as part of our gluten-free menu:

  • Green Gazpacho Shooter
  • Corn Cakes with Avocado
  • Beef Carpaccio in Parmesan Cup
  • Shrimp with Sambal, Fennel, Onion + Rice Cake Garnish in Asian Spoon
  • Beet + Chevre with Candy-striped Beet Garnish
  • Lemongrass + Tamari-Marinated Chicken Skewer

The guests were then invited to the dining room to enjoy a delicious buffet consisting of halibut, roasted chicken, quinoa, potato salad, chopped salad and a summer vegetable ragout. The evening ended with lots of fun dancing and a delicious assortment of cupcakes with some, of course, prepared gluten-free.
