The event took place at a lovely estate on the Hudson River called Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, NY. This makes me wonder, did the newlyweds make a visit to Farm Sanctuary, also in Rhinebeck, and was Gene Bauer on the guest list?
Food was catered by Gendron Catering, a Hudson Valley catering business which promises "an explosion of flavors and a riot of colors." Owner and Executive Chef, Daniel Gendron, is a graduate of the CIA and has worked at some of New York's finest restaurants, including Tavern on the Green and Windows on the World. With a catering budget of $750,000, that would include a pretty big Mediterannean spread on the buffet table.
While I don't have the exact menu, rumor has it the gluten-free vegan wedding cake was provided by Babycakes gluten-free vegan bakery in New York City. The $11,000 cake (or cakes, most likely) could potentially be the first gluten-free vegan dessert these 500 wedding guests have ever tasted. I hope it was amazing!
If you're thinking about having a vegan menu for your next special event, why not consider contacting Well on Wheels to cater it?
