Kier and Mitzi like to go to a variety of wedding shows to meet new vendors and reconnect with the many vendors we have had the pleasure of working with.
When we are doing a wedding we are constantly on the go. We work side by side with the vendors that are also working at the wedding. So, as photographers we get to admire what the florist delivers, hear bands or listen to what DJ’s have to say, and of course we get to taste a wide variety of food.
Last weekend we were invited to a tasting at the Afifi Shrine and Event Center in Tacoma which also happens to be the headquarters of Papa Eddie’s Catering. The concept was simple – they invited clients and vendors to a tasting. They played good music and as we sat at our tables it was like being at a wedding and actually having a chance to sit, enjoy the food and chat with friends!
We’re very pleased to hear that they want to make this a monthly event. We aren’t about to turn down a catered lunch tasting with these guys but more importantly it is really inspiring to sit down with fellow wedding vendors and colleagues. We walked away getting to know a few additional vendors and we were able to learn a few new tips.
Thanks Papa Eddie’s! (PS – we loved the asparagus and phyllo appetizers)
