Describe your typical process with a couple.
A tasting date would be arranged. We would discuss their requirements and dietary requests. I would offer them a taster followed by what I would recommend for their very special day. Various follow up conversations would be had to ensure everything was in place and their expectations exceeded. A second visit would be recommended with the in-laws to give piece of mind and feel inclusive of this wonderful event.
