Gourmet Galley – Vendor Spotlight

Located just over the Rhode Island border in North Stonington, CT, Gourmet Galley is a certified green caterer specializing in weddings, corporate events, and non-profits. They have over 20 years in the business and have just recently become the Caterer of Choice for the Newport Preservation Society!

1. How did Gourmet Galley come to be? 

I got married in 1996 and hired Gourmet Galley to cater my wedding!  2 years later, the owner was catering my friends wedding that I was attending and approached me and asked if I wanted to buy her business!  She said to me, “I remember you as a bride, you were very into the food and the planning etc. and I’ve heard through the grape vine you are starting to cater on your own a bit…” True story.  That’s exactly how it happened.  As they say, the rest is history.

2. Are there any other services you provide besides catering?

We run a seasonal lunch cafe at the Florence Griswold Museum, called Cafe Flo.  It’s a full service, outdoor cafe with 40 seats.

3. Are you the exclusive caterer for any venues?

We are the exclusive caterer at: The Guilford Yacht Club, Guilford, The Meadows, Stonington, Priam Vineyards, Colchester.

4. What wedding food trends have you seen most in weddings this year?

Everyone is asking for locally sourced, sustainable menu items as well as vegan dishes.  We’ve had a lot of fun creating tasty vegan dishes for our clients. Brown liquor drinks featured at the bar are huge this year too.

5. Do you have any signature dishes or does the menu change seasonally? 

Our menus definitely change seasonally, but we really like to create dishes for our clients based on their likes too.  We have one station that we have fun with called a Star Bar.  Star Bars feature one ingredient in 5-6 different dishes.  So, corn for instance.  The station might have: crispy corn cakes with avocado salsa, creamy corn and poblano soup sippers, bacon and maple popcorn, corn muffins with smoke pork shoulder. etc. We’ve done them with tomatoes, avocados, and clams!  Its fun and the guests love it.

Lakeview Pavilion – Venue Spotlight

After extensive renovations, Lakeview Pavilion is more beautiful than ever! Learn all about what this spectacular has to offer…

How did your business come to be?

In search of the “American Dream” our family emigrated from Greece in 1981. Eight years later, we discovered Lakeview Ballroom, a secluded, historical, lakefront property surrounded by tranquil woodlands. It was love at first sight!  Excited by the potential of the property, we were hopeful that our vision and determination would enable us to transform the modest dance hall into an impressive and successful wedding and event venue.  Within the first few years, our knowledge of the industry flourished and we continued to make improvements to the property.  As a result, Lakeview Pavilion was producing events that totally impressed!  Word began to spread, business boomed, and it became evident that we had found our lives’ passion.  Twenty nine years later, our passion for weddings and events continues to grow.  As one of the most distinctive event venues in the Massachusetts/Rhode Island area, Lakeview Pavilion sets the standard for the wedding & event industry in our local market, yet we continue to strive to better ourselves.  We have no other choice – our clients entrust us with hosting the most important celebrations of their lives – and our clients deserve the best!

What are the services you offer?

At Lakeview Pavilion, we plan everything from the meal selection, to organizing a customized ceremony & reception, to ordering specialty napkins and linens for our couples on their special day. We sit down with every couple from the beginning of their planning process, all the way up until their wedding day. We are fully committed to our couples from beginning to the end. We always tell our clients to call us and ask questions, even if has nothing to do with Lakeview. We love to guide couples throughout this exciting process. The day of a wedding, from the moment they step into Lakeview, to the end of the night they are provided with top quality service. Every couple is granted a personal attendant who is by their side all night from the moment they step into their wedding! Along with the attendant there are multiple managers, and the owners on duty to assist with anything. Our goal is for the couples, and parents, to not worry about a single thing. We make everything as flawless as possible, from the announcement timing, to our food service. We always try to stick to the schedule that is discussed with the couples. We always stay true to the couples needs and wants. Along with our services, we also provide our couples with a preferred professionals list which assists them when choosing a photographer, a DJ, or even hotel accommodations in the area. We not only specialize in weddings, but we host high school proms, corporate events, religious celebrations, and banquets!

Where are you located?

We are located on a tranquil, peaceful waterfront with a natural New England setting — right in the town of Foxborough, MA. It is a perfect location because it is 30 minutes from Boston, Providence, and Cape Cod. Conveniently close to major highways in the state of Massachusetts, our location is ideal for New England residents traveling to celebrate!

How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

Lakeview Pavilion is very accommodating when working with clients to determine a date for their wedding day. Just like other wedding venues, there are peak season months, but we always work with our couples to make sure that their date is truly memorable. There is no time restriction for booking in advanced. We once planned an entire wedding with one month notice. As long as you have a wedding gown, we can handle the rest!

 What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

Our biggest piece of advice is to smile, and have fun! Enjoy every moment throughout the process because it is an amazing opportunity to enjoy each other as a couple. The planning process is similar to a marriage. You have to make choices, and decisions together. You may have to ask for help, if you feel overwhelmed, and that is okay! When all of the planning comes together it is amazing to see the pure joy from our couples as they start the next chapter of their lives together.
