Cocktail Hour Movie Popcorn Stand

“Fun food in fancy clothes” was the theme Risa and Michael presented to caterer Betty Brooklyn. “We wanted a formal party, but with many of the fun foods and snacks we enjoy eating in our real life, with a floating-style dinner rather than seated,” Risa says. Since Risa loves movie popcorn, the iconic cinema snack made an appearance during the reception, with guests being greeted by a popcorn machine as they entered the Foundry in Long Island City, New York. Betty Brooklyn brought the couple’s culinary vision to life with a slew of stations serving everything from sliders to pasta and vegetarian eats and an assortment of comfort food-inspired passed appetizers, including fried chicken biscuits, curly fries and veggie kebabs. “Betty Brooklyn’s food is so special, so delicious and so unlike a meal you’ve typically been served at a wedding,” Risa says. “We were really excited for our guests to enjoy her cuisine.”
