Real Wedding: Kelsey and Aaron at HammerSky Vineyards
Last fall, we had the pleasure of catering Kelsey and Aaron’s wedding at one of our favorite venues, HammerSky Vineyards. Their wedding was full of whimsical and romantic flourishes, right down to their food choices. Kelsey and Aaron’s guests enjoyed treats like our One-Bite Chicken n’ Waffles and Petit Peach Cobblers in addition to a hearty buffet dinner. Scroll down to pictures by One Love Photography of this beautiful wedding and the full menu!

Salt Block Cooking
Looking for something unique and interactive for your event? Trumpet Vine has discovered a new way to prepare and serve food for events that will wow your guests and their palates, Salt Block Cooking. This global cuisine concept involves grilling food atop pink Himalayan salt blocks. The salt block concentrates flavor into meat by drawing out moisture and leaving food perfectly seasoned. Did we mention this whole process looks cool? Because it looks really cool! The 600-million-year-old salt block is not only gorgeous and luminous but a great conversation starter; it’s not every day that you’re eating food off something that is older than the land you’re standing on!
Leftovers for Lovers
Does anyone really get to eat at their own wedding? With all the people, formalities, and excitement, taking 5 minutes to enjoy a meal often goes to the wayside. It’s important to us that all our couples enjoy the full Trumpet Vine experience and that’s why we offer “Leftovers for Lovers.” A unique Trumpet Vine service, “Leftovers for Lovers” features an insulated picnic basket stuffed full of appetizers and dishes from the reception menu. We make sure this send-off picnic gets tucked into the getaway car at the end of the evening so our newlyweds can munch and relax privately back at their suite. When it is all said and done, our couples have a little memento from their wedding caterer to last a lifetime.
Trumpet Vine + Sunset’s “Savor the Central Coast”
We are excited to be part of Sunset’s “Savor the Central Coast” concert with Colbie Caillat at the beautiful Vina Robles Amphitheater later this month. Trumpet Vine will be providing wine-friendly picnics bags as one of the evening’s dining options.
Each picnic-to-go will include a savory fig and blended cheese torte, crostini, charcuterie, Castelvetrano olives, and a farro salad with dried cherries, pistachios, grilled raddichio and truffle vinaigrette. Our vegetarian alternative to charcuterie includes hummus, tzatziki and falafel. Each picnic bag also will be accompanied by a bottle of Vina Robles wine.
