Our perfect June wedding luncheon was set high above the beach, under a tent, on an emerald-green yawning lawn, surrounded by salmon-pink beach roses, in Gloucester, MA.

nd served cool, because of the clear memory I had of the wedding of my dear Matron of Honour’s wedding, which took place decades past in Richmond, VA, on quite possibly one of the most humid days on record. Beverley had a delicious and refreshing menu at her wedding celebration too, served in a similar style.
Timothy S. Hopkins Catering of Essex, MA delivered the most creative wedding menu options and services for our relaxed, buffet-style luncheon, served midday under a tent. Everyone we spoke with from THC was always so friendly, patient, most professional, and kind.
Some examples of most tempting hors d’oeuvres we chose included the Raspberry and Brie Phyllos, Maple Glazed Scallops and Bacon, Lobster Salad on Homemade Potato Chips, and Sweet Plantain Cups Filled with Mango Salsa. Everything was beautifully presented, most delicious and disappeared quickly.
For our main course(s), we offered our guests the options of delicious, Chilled, Sliced Tenderloin of Beef with a Trio of Sauces: Horseradish Cream, Wasabi Cream and Ancho Aioli; plus Olive Oil Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce.
We added the vegan option of Spiralized Vegetable Salad with Zucchini, Summer Squash, Carrots with Chickpeas and Lemon Tahini Vinaigrette; and had a platter or two of Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Grilled Seasonal Vegetables and delicious Fingerling Potatoes. In addition to the wedding cake(s), THC provided delectable Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and tempting Chocolate Mousse Cups.
Nothing was left. It was as if all the seagulls maneuvering along the beach had attended our wedding too. Many of our more senior attendees told us it was the best food they had ever experienced at a wedding! Hurrah, Hooray! Six months later we are still hearing the accolades. From start to finish, everything was great. Most legitimately the best caterer on the North Shore.
