We LOVE catering Weddings! (And why wouldn’t we??!!). Weddings are one of the happiest moments in a person’s life – surrounded by friends and family – celebrating the love of two people!

The interesting thing though about Weddings is everyone has their own vision…and that’s what we love most! With so many options to choose from – ballroom, barn, outdoor – it’s a big decision for many couples. And certainly one that should not be taken lightly!

If you’re thinking Ballroom, the Venue at Capriotti’s offers so much…beginning with our on-site, climate-controlled Wedding Ceremony building – The Cappella. With seating up to 200 guests, the venue can be transformed into your vision with the celebrant of your choice! Fast forward to your Cocktail Hour and Reception, we offer two beautifully appointed outdoor Patios and a spacious modern Ballroom, accommodating up to 375 guests! The versatility of our Venue allows you to use your theme to make our space your very own.

But if Ballrooms aren’t your thing, Capriotti’s is also the exclusive caterer for The Barn at Graver’s Tree Farm. It is a beautiful Barn Venue, tucked in the valley beneath hills of evergreens – the perfect blend of new rough cut woody timbers strategically placed on the original 1850’s stone walls. The Venue is laced with touches of sweeping elegance found in the iron doorways and chandeliers. Our expert staff will move seamlessly throughout your Wedding, handling all the Venue details.

We are also pleased to be one of the recommended vendors at Catalpa Grove. Located on the historic property of Lakewood Park and situated creek side, it is a four season Venue with a tranquil setting. The timber frame building boosts massive ceilings, elegant chandeliers, a stone fireplace, and balcony. We can happily provide delicious food and bar service for your event.

Perhaps you have a memorable spot or homestead that is special to you. As an experienced caterer, we will make that area just as elegant or casual as you would like. We offer everything from appetizers to full course meals and can even do an onsite grilling with a variety of options.

Wedding Weekends are now becoming more popular. And if you are looking for a NEW option…we’d like to introduce…BELLAGIO FIELDS – Your Weekend Wedding Venue! A perfect outdoor setting for your Ceremony and Reception with rolling fields and mountains as your backdrop!

The best part…the Venue is yours for the Weekend – with overnight accommodations for up to 30 members of your Bridal Party or Family! Relax and enjoy the private Courtyard, complete with fire pits and furnishings, set up outdoor games around the property or hang out in the common area with drinks, games and tv.

The celebration starts the night before your Wedding with a private Rehearsal Dinner, followed by a Continental Breakfast (hot options available) on your Wedding Day, Beauty Prep Snacks, the Reception and a Continental Breakfast (hot options available) for the day following. All catering for Bellagio Fields will be done exclusively by Capriotti’s Catering!

Have you seen our on-site Ceremony Venue – The Cappella? We have hosted many Weddings, Parties, and Cocktails Hours in this beautiful climate controlled building since we opened our doors just a few years ago.

Each week it is our pleasure to host Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hours, and Parties!

Capriotti’s is pleased to offer the option of hosting both the Ceremony and Reception at our Venue. This Wedding Day convenience is perfect for both couples and their guests.  The Cappella is ideal not only for ensuring a dry onsite location on rainy days, but also a climate controlled venue for the sweltering days of summer.

Do you love having outdoor celebrations with family and friends, but dread having to spend the entire day at the hot, smoky grill? If you answered “yes and yes”, then Capriotti’s has the perfect solution! Check out the Grilling Menu Options for your next gathering…

In addition to our delicious grilling options, we’ve thrown in 7 handy tips we use when grilling for our customers!

  • Get it hot. Always remember to preheat your grill 15 to 20 minutes before you start cooking. If you’re cooking on high, the grill should be 400-450°F, 350-400°F for medium-high, 300-350°F for medium and 250-300°F for low heat. When the grill is heated correctly, the food will sear immediately when placed on the grill and keep the inside moist.
  • Keep it clean. After preheating the grill, use a long handled grill brush to clean off any residue or charred pieces left from previous grillings. And to make it easier for next time, scrape the grill as soon as you’re done grilling.
  • Oil the rack. To prevent food from sticking, oil the hot grill rack by holding a vegetable oil soaked paper towel with tongs and rubbing it over the rack. And remember, NEVER use cooking spray on a hot grill!
  • Food safety is always a top priority at Capriotti’s. Avoid cross contamination by using separate plates, cutting boards and utensils for raw and cooked foods. Remember to keep foods refrigerated while it’s marinating, and always throw out the extra marinade…don’t use it for basting.
  • Is it ready? All too often, you may be tempted to cut open the meat or chicken while it’s cooking to see if it’s done, resulting in all the juices escaping. The best way to know if it is fully cooked is to check the items internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer. Chicken should register 165°F, Steak at 145°F, Ground Beef should be well done at a minimum of 160°F and Pork at 145°F
  • Flare-ups happen. When fat drips onto the heat below, it catches fire and causes flames to char the outside of your food, while the inside is still raw. The best ways to reduce flare-ups are to select leaner cuts of meat, trim excess fat and remove the skin from your chicken. It’s also a good idea to keep a squirt bottle of water near the grill to douse any unexpected flare-ups.
  • Let it rest. To allow the juices to redistribute evenly, once all items have reached the recommended internal temperatures, place finished meats and chicken on a clean platter, tented with foil, for about 10 minutes to rest. Then, enjoy!

At Capriotti’s Catering we offer our Sizzlin Grillin Menu, our Picnic Menu, our Chicken BBQ Menu, and our Steak Grilling Menu with options to add on even more deliciously grilled items. So when you’re ready to throw that big party, invite the guests, sit back with a cold beverage and let Capriotti’s do the grilling!

Amidst all the items on your “Wedding To Do List”, choosing the wedding venue is always at the top of that list.  Where do you begin? Cortney and Bri, the Wedding Coordinators at Capriotti’s Palazzo in McAdoo, offer 5 helpful tips to selecting the wedding venue that is perfect for your style.

Tip #1 – Tour the Venue – Are you in awe of the wedding venue when you drive up or when you step inside the front doors?

Tip #2 – Be Flexible – (it’s not just meant for yoga class!).  Unless you are steadfast with a particular date, being flexible opens up more opportunities to host your wedding at the venue of your choice.

Tip #3 – Color Scheme – A neutral colored venue allows your wedding theme to pop!

Tip #4 – On Site Ceremonies – Will Mother Nature cooperate? Make sure the venue will be able to accommodate your outdoor wedding in a covered area or indoors in case of bad weather.

Tip #5 – The Food – Hot, Hot, Hot! Don’t settle for the venue that plates your dinners in advance and keeps it in a warmer…the food should be plated and served hot to each of your guests when your dinner hour begins.

With so many decisions to make, rely on our Wedding Coordinators at Capriotti’s to answer your wedding venue questions; and let us help you check off one of the items on that Wedding To Do List!
