Alex & Rob at the Historic Malbis Plantation | Gulf Shores Wedding Catering
After tying the knot at a church overlooking Mobile Bay, Alex & Rob celebrated their new union in style at the Historic Malbis Plantation. Once a greenhouse nursery, this great location offers vine-covered trellises that create a cozy, memorable venue. We worked with a talented floral team to create the long running tables where the guests enjoyed a full buffet and an evening of fun for all. As the daylight dimmed, the twinkling lights created a magical environment for the newly weds and their guests.
We enjoyed working with this family to offer recipes from their family. Mix in some burlap, glass jars, a black board, a great old rolling cart and we ended up with a great presentation for a yummy cookie. These were offered outside the main serving area so that we created several ad hoc food station areas where guests could serve themselves while awaiting the main course.
For this wedding, we started our own collection of vintage plates. What would have been taboo 10 years ago is now very chic and the guests loved how they fit in with the entire decor.
The menu mirror makes a nice statement while being very functional at the same time.
The “x” serving pattern along with this gorgeous center piece allowed us to serve many guests at one time thus reducing their wait for the food.
More of the vintage plates but now in a dessert size carried over the theme to the cake table.
We love it when the bride and groom bring their personalities into the theme and got to see that when they handed us a bunch of candy and said, “Make it fun!”
It was indeed a magical evening and we were honored to have been asked to join in the celebration! Congratulations Alex & Rob!
