Q&A with White House Catering

May 7th, 2012

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 question do you find brides asking you the most about wedding catering?
These days, cost is the main concern.

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
