If there is one thing we tell our brides time and time again, it’s this- hire a great Caterer. Nothing makes a good party like a fabulous menu and a great Catering team to execute it.
If you’ve been at the Mansion on a weekend, you’ll more than likely bump into our friends at White House Catering. Today, their owner David Napier took a moment out of his busy wedding season to share a bit about what they love most about being in the wedding industry, and some key tips
How did you get your start in the wedding industry?
I started as a lead bartender 6 years ago. I landed in the office when I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had previously worked professionally in the music industry coordinating & booking bands. Brides are much easier than rock stars!
What’s the best thing about working in the wedding industry?
The honor of assisting with life long memories. I thoroughly enjoy the excitement of weddings!
Any tips you’d like to share with our 2012 brides?
Do not make this stressful. You are throwing a party. If it is not fun then it is not worth doing.
We couldn’t agree more- wedding planning may be stressful from time to time, but we have no doubt that you can turn it into a fun and memorable experience when you hire great professionals like White House Catering.
Thanks for stopping by!
See You Soon,
~Paula & Martin Ramirez
