Alright, Party People, let's talk food. If you're planning an outdoor wedding, feeding your guests can get tricky. When my husband and I were in the planning process, our number one goal was to treat our event like any other party we would typically throw. We wanted our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable, not that they were being shuffled around while waiting for the next portion of our event to take place. We wanted to take the pressure off of everyone, ourselves included, and eliminate the traditional flow of the evening. So, when my husband and I were deciding on a caterer for our outdoor wedding, a food truck was an obvious choice.
There are many great benefits of having a food truck cater your wedding. They are already equipped and have experience with serving a large number of people quickly and efficiently, they can set up shop almost anywhere, and they are able to give your guests a unique and interactive dining experience.
So, after a lot of research, A Moveable Feast, based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was an easy choice for us. Not only are their food prices affordable, but they were also willing to travel to our property in Kalamazoo without overcharging us with lavish travel fees. And most importantly they had a vast variety of delicious food options, which allowed us to be creative and stay true to our vision. Did I mention the food was absolutely delicious?
Most importantly, we fell in love with basically every aspect of their business model. Their priorities reflected our priorities, which was extremely important to us. One of the main aspects we focused on when planning our wedding was the desire to be respectful to our environment and those whom we share it with. In other words, we knew we didn't want our wedding to be a burden on our environment by being wasteful or supporting harmful habits. Luckily for us, the following is a list of reasons why choosing A Moveable Feast to be apart of our special day was one of the easiest choices we made:
1 .They minimize the use of processed ingredients;
2. They source their ingredients locally;
3. They buy from farms that raise animals responsibility; and
4. They make food from scratch.
What a dreamboat of a food truck, amiright? Overall we loved our experience. The employees were extremely pleasant and patient throughout the entire evening, and we were able to offer an exciting and unique dining experience to our guests,
As you can see we went with a taco theme, however, the options are endless!
