Congratulations on booking your summer wedding! Tis the season of good vibes, good weather and, last but not least, good food.
For your summer wedding menu, we suggest keeping it fun and fresh. In-season produce makes it easy to go with fresh flavors, and our interactive menu options will add some extra fun to your special day.
Here are some of our favorite menu picks that pass the summer vibe check, and will have your guests talking months later!
The best way to set the vibe for a summer wedding is to welcome your guests with some fresh lemonade, pink and classic.
Summer weddings are the perfect setting to treat your guests to a tequila bar! This fun and interactive station lets your guests try tequilas, margaritas and some other unique tequila-based mixed drinks.
For lite bites in the summertime, take advantage of the in-season shell fish. Pops of color bring even more fun! Pictured above are our Mini New England Style Lobster Rolls, a total summer hit.
Nostalgic BBQ food at a summer wedding is an absolute delight. Think sliders, dogs, fresh fruit, corn on the cob, ropa vieja or anything you and your guests grew up eating in together. A comforting go-to for any summer wedding.

If you frequent the boardwalk in the summer, this delightfully sweet station is a must! Cotton candy, funnel cake, churros, deep fried Oreos, Zeppole and lemonade give this station all the Jersey Shore feels. Your guests' inner child will be thriving.
Bonfire & S'mores
While s'mores can be enjoyed any time of the year, they're best known for their summer moment. Everyone loves s'mores, and summer nights are simply incomplete without them (especially when you have a lakeside wedding venue)!
Late Night Empanadas
To be totally honest, any late-night food station is great in the summer, especially ones that resemble a food truck. You save guests the hassle of ordering drunk munchy food when they get back to the hotel (and we're not judging if they do both). We're highlighting our empanada station because it's definitely a guest favorite. Who doesn't love empanadas? Yummmmm!
