Getting Started

The early stages of planning a wedding are often overwhelming to the bridal couple.  The thought of  researching and coordinating so many vendors, creating invite lists and budget sheets is not nearly as fun as perusing the beautiful pictures seen in the vast media outlets for the wedding industry.

We realize that this is often the first time our clients are using a catering service and the process is unfamiliar. To maximize our services, we recommend first checking our availability for the chosen date and then submitting our request for estimate form. The estimate form allows us to learn about your vision and tastes in order to start building a menu. Since all of our menus are custom built, we need to have a rough idea of what we will be serving and the general overview in order to provide an accurate estimate. This initial step ultimately helps us determine rental needs, preliminary itineraries and floor plans. Our estimates contain detailed pricing, labor, taxes and service charge to give a clear and accurate view of costs.
Once an estimate has been started, it is a great time to do a first meeting and a tasting. This initial consultation typically takes just over an hour. We review our services, listen to your thoughts, ideas, worries, preliminary plans and answer any questions. This meeting gives clients a chance to meet Daniel and Liane and to become comfortable with the company. Tastings can be done in conjunction with this initial meeting or at another time. We only offer tastings from October through early May as we allow the kitchen crew to focus on our booked events during the height of the summer season. We realize that this can be an inconvenience to couples in the intitial planning stages but it will be appreciated when it is their event at the forefront. There is an intial fee for a tasting based on the chosen menu items. Upon booking with LP, this fee is deducted from the final invoice. Refer to the FAQ's for details.
Once hired for an event, the next stages typically entail honing in on the additional vendors needs, fine tuning the menu selections, working on rental orders, creating floor plans, rain plans, etc... It is during this stage that a client can start to see everything taking shape and how all of the parts and pieces will come together. A final site visit is arranged one to two weeks prior to the actual event. Often times it includes the venue coordinator, florist and officiant. It allows the key vendors to obtain the final details and to do a mock run through of the entire event. The LP team wants every client to be comfortable and confident with the planning process. We believe that communication is key throughout the planning process to ensure a successful event. Feel free to contact us at any stage of your planning.
