Wedding Reception at Cahaba Brewing
Cahaba Brewing does an excellent job at hosting large scale events. The venue has an industrial look and truly serves as the perfect blank canvas for any event. This location is a wonderful space for some of the top floral designers and event planners in Birmingham. The CB staff members were also such a pleasure to work with!
This couple rented out the entire space for the night. Because Cahaba Brewing is such a large venue, there was so much space for decor. We decided to do a stationed meal including a carving station, custom sauces, and late night bites. The food was themed around southern sophistication with extreme attention to detail for every flavor pairing.
One of our favorite things we do is the beef filet carving station. This was a huge hit as usual. This event was also our first time doing a blackened southern shrimp with “spicy cowboy butter”. Everyone could not get enough of the sauce!
We also did bacon wrapped green beans with a sweet tea glaze. Since posting the pictures of these on social media, people have not stopped asking for these at future events! They were such a brilliant combo that tasted even better than they looked.
We ended the night with Jack Daniels beef sliders drizzled with homemade whiskey sauce as a late night bite coupled with our famous chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk.
Big shout out to Daughters Baking! We were honored to work alongside the ladies who made the delicious wedding cake for the evening.
