There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
Mega tasting, or Mini Bridal Faire. Whatever we might call it, we just had a pretty amazing time yesterday! It was the first time that we have hosted more than one couple at a time for a tasting.
Once couples have agreed on a date and site for their wedding festivities, the next thing on the their to do list should be selecting a caterer. We invited eight couples who are getting married this summer and fall at Sand Rock Farm to join us in tasting from a selection of food offered by one of our favorite caterers.
Local Harvest Catering has just opened their new facility, Front Street Kitchen in downtown Santa Cruz. We thought it might be a fun opportunity to gather couples who are ready to choose their menus and caterers, to taste a selection of food paired with Santa Cruz Wines from Bargetto.
We were able to showcase linens, china, glassware from Alexis Party Rental on Santa Cruz’s far west side. Each bride and groom might have a theme, color or idea that is carried out through the wedding and reception decorations. Alexis helps put their ideas together creating that picture perfect day.
All who marry at Sand Rock Farm may choose from among a number of vendors for photography, flowers, music, officiant and dessert (sweets of their choice). We provide a list of vendors we know who work well on our property, for the couple’s information. Of course couples may also use their own vendors.
When asked about the experience, one of the brides said that they really enjoyed having opinions from others planning a similar party, trading experience. A Thumb’s up for the idea, said another, echoing the first bride’s sentiment.
