So yesterday we did our menu finalization meeting with Stephanie and just a few things to comment on... 1) Once again, they went above what we could even have expected. We were torn between the Street Vendors station and the Grooms station so we were going to choose both of them. But since they're so similar Vinnie let us combine the two stations into one so we could still pick another station. They updated the menu AGAIN since we were there last and there's now a new Steakhouse station so we picked that as our last station which is awesome. We also picked a signature drink for the martini station... we're going to do blueberry vodka with stoli vanilla for a blueberries and cream martini to go with the blue in the wedding. They also added new fish entrees since the last time we were there so we did something I'm scared about and we picked an entree we never tasted!
We did end up talking to them about the cake situation and how we went outside the hall for the cake. Stephanie did not seem as understanding about why we did it however Vinnie TOTALLY understood and said that's why they stopped using Isgro's so he is going to "blow up" the Viennese hour for us, as he put it, to make up for the loss of the cake in our package. We also got them to add in Sangria for us for the evening.
We asked Stephanie about doing the photo booth in the ballroom and she said that was totally okay, we're going to do it in the back corner so it's out of the way but still IN the ballroom which works. Thanks to other Knotties warnings we also made arrangements to come the next day to pick up all our centerpieces and stuff.
All in all the meeting went well but more than anything I'm just relieved they have been so accomodating to every request we've had and so willing to give us more and more without us even asking. I just hope the fish entree we chose ends up being good!
