Teri Kinne Events - Jenna and Tim's Wedding

The Coronado Community Center - Coronado Island

The June morning of Jenna & Tim’s wedding blossomed sunny and clear out of the blanket of June gloom we had been waking up to. Groom Tim is a Restaurateur so the menu and service was a major ingredient in his Wedding Reception. I was brought in to head up this catering portion of the wedding reception and the menu was creative and impressive.

Their venue, the Coronado Community Center on the Bay of Coronado Island had breathtaking views of the Coronado bay, alive with sails and gulls.

Guests arrived at the reception on the patio with views of the bay, porticos hanging with lanterns and floral displays of branches, dripping with hanging blossoms and votives. Katherine Farley of KLF Floral created the elegant floral displays.

As guests arrived at the reception, they were welcomed with tray-passed Cabernet and Chardonnay from Seventh Generation Wineries.

Five tray-passed hors d’oeuvres were presented; Gourmet Pigs in a Blanket – Italian Sausage in Puff Pastry with a Basil Mustard, Mini Vegetarian Patty “Berkeley Burgers” Topped with Goat Cheese, Cranberry Sauce, Chipotle Mayo and Micro Greens, Mascarpone Cheese Tartlets, Pizzettes of Fig, Gorgonzola & Caramelized Onion and Endive Spears with Curried Chicken and Dried Cranberries.

Guests also enjoyed stationed Cheese display and an elaborate Seafood Display on shaved ice.

The rolling lawn surrounding the patio was set up for croquet so guests could enjoy the summer game before the doors opened to the dinner reception area. When they did, the Bride and groom were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. and we began the dinner service. The first course was a plated Summer Salad of Arugula and Watermelon with Goat Cheese, Toasted Hazelnuts and a Balsamic Glaze.
