Michelle & John's Mechanics Hall Wedding

Posted by Peppers Team on Tue, Aug 01, 2017

Michelle & John's Mechanics Hall Wedding

   Michelle and John were so much fun to work with. Their vision was anything but ordinary, yet so very approachable, and incorporated many details that expressed them as a couple. With everything from a legends of zelda themed cake and a surprise stage performace from the Bride this was certainly a memorable and personable celebration. Here is an inside look at their magnificient Mechanics Hall wedding.

   The evening started off with a ceremony on stage under a custom floral arch.  Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour complete with a raw bar with stone crabs from the Florida Keys, a ceviche station, and a grand antipasto presentation with imported salamis, local cheeses, olives, bruschetta’s and roasted nuts. The delicious food didn't stop there as a 4-course dinner awaited them in the great hall.

Michelle and John's wedding style was bold and elegant with a black, silver and dark purple color pallette. We used a beautiful black and silver herringbone table linen and a black water glass for that extra pop! That, combined with the striking tall centerpieces dangling with crystals created the wow factor.

No evening would be complete without something sweet! Our team designed an elaborate dessert bar with assorted sweets and cake accompanied by an espresso bar from Black Tie Espresso.

Photoshoot at Tower Hill Botanic Gardens

Posted by Pepper's Team Blog on Wed, Jun 07, 2017

Tower Hill Botanic Garden Photo Shoot

We had the honor of participating in a styled photo shoot at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston MA. The designers at JD Designs wanted to capture two distinctly different looks for the shoot- Great Gatsby and Rustic Romance. The Great Gatsby theme reflected upscale luxury through gold sparkle and black linens paired with ivory and gold china, crystal votives, and statement floral designs. The second design with farmhouse tables adorned with vintage china, wildflowers, lace, and pillar candles created an earthy, organic rustic feel.

For each of these designs we provided a menu to compliment the look. For Great Gatsby our bakery designed a black and white wedding cake with gold and pearl accents. Our chefs created a composed plate of twin lamb chops, fried potato cup with garlic mashed potatoes, silver dollar mushrooms and a Japanese eggplant garnish for the culinary component.

The rustic romance design was complimented with a lace and floral cake and our ever popular short ribs with farm fresh root vegetables, seasonal asparagus and corn pudding. 

Tower Hill Botanic Garden is one of those very versatile venues that can accommodate a vareity of different looks from Great Gatsby to rustic and everything in-between.

Tying the Knot at Tower Hill

tower hill botanic garden social event

Planning a wedding is a mix of endless details, decisions, and stressful moments. Recently, we held our "Tying the Knot at Tower Hill" event to offer brides an opportunity to learn useful wedding planning tips in a fun and relaxed setting to help them begin the process of planning their dream wedding. With assistance from Brittni and Shauna at Tower Hill Botanic Gardens and Dave from Allegro Photography, this event turned out to be a big success.


Guests enjoyed brunch and mimosas while mingling with other couples. The program covered topics from maximizing your budget and personalizing your wedding to current trends in the wedding industry and how to select vendors. Guests took home a  swag bag and tiered cake cookie favors (which doubled as place cards when the guests arrived!) Most couples continued their afternoon walking around the beautiful gardens of Tower Hill on this perfect spring day.

Lindsey and Dave Tie the Knot at the Five Bridge Inn

Posted by Sarah Barrett on Wed, Mar 01, 2017

Lindsey and Dave's Fall Wedding at The Five Bridge Inn

It was a beautiful fall day in October, when Lindsey and Dave said "I do" under the white gazebo at the Five Bridge Inn. This was an extra special wedding for us to be a part of, as Lindsey is one of our own talented Event Managers. We couldn't be more excited to share her wedding with you.

wedding ceremony five bridge inn.jpgfive bridge inn wedding.jpg

Lindsey and Dave wanted a casual elegant feel to their wedding that also involved hanging out by a fire with friends and family at the end of the celebration (a past time they frequently enjoy). The Five Bridge Inn couldn’t have been a more perfect venue for them.  Between the sprawling lawns, poolside cocktail hour, stunning white cloth tent, and of course the fire pit, the inn created the perfect backdrop for their fall inspired wedding. They were even able to spend the night before the wedding celebrating their daughter Mckenna's birthday outside at the inn.five bridge inn.jpgcatering five bridge inn.jpgcatering five bridge inn.jpgfall wedding cocktail cider.jpgPeppers Artful Events Five Bridge Inn

The color palette of purples, oranges, greens, and pops of yellow were incorporated throughout many details of the wedding.  The centerpiece design incorporated wood stumps from Lindsey's grandmother's backyard. Between the wood accents, moss and bunches of kale a natural elegant feel was created.

Lindsey, naturally with her love for food being in the catering industry, wanted her guests to enjoy a wide range of tastes and flavors. Dinner was served on stations with small plates. This allowed the guests to enjoy a range of food from grilled cheese and soup, short ribs atop savory corn pudding, to a chef active butternut squash ravioli station with a maple brown butter sauce.

Following dinner, guests enjoyed cake and an array of cookies paired with milk. The cookie bar was a joint effort from family and friends, who spent days before the wedding preparing their favorite cookie recipes. There were so many personal details incorporated into the wedding that made it truly unique to Lindsey and Dave. We couldn't be happier to have been a part of the celebration - Wishing them both a lifetime of happiness (from the Peppers team!).

Pantone Color of the Year 2017

Posted by Pepper's Team Blog on Thu, Jan 05, 2017

Pantone Color of the Year 2017 is Greenery

pantone-color-of-the-year-2017-greenery-4.jpg

We’re so excited about Pantone’s color choice for this year.

This refreshing greenish-yellowish hue is “Symbolic of new Beginnings” and has been created to “satisfy our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize” according to Pantone.com.

When you think of the color Greenery what comes to mind? new life? spring time? growth? nature? To us, the color and it's meaning represents an opportunity, as a company, to continue to grow and learn each day. It reminds us to always produce fresh, flavorful, wholesome food sourced from local Farms and businesses. It inspires us to continue along our path of being a certified green caterer and to remain socially and environmentally responsible. It excites us to be able to help design and execute our client’s visions, keeping up with current trends and inspire ways to use this vibrant color in many of our upcoming events.

Greenery is a beautiful color to incorporate in both small or big ways in the design of your event. How about a moss backdrop for placecards to create a natural garden look? Or  magnolia leaf placecards for a more subtle use of the color. Colored napkins are perfect for adding a POP of color to your tablescape.

Greenery also works well when incorporated into floral designs. We love the impact succulants add to an all white cake.

2015’s color of the Year, Marsala, took the wedding industry by storm, inspiring brides to incorporate the deep burgundy-like color into many aspects of their big day! From bridesmaid’s dresses and cakes to centerpieces and bouquets, we saw many unique and beautiful touches of Marsala in every season that year and expect that greenery will be a huge trend in the upcoming 2017 wedding season- we couldn’t be more excited!

On the second floor, guests dined at farmers table adorned with wildflowers (designed by a very talented bridesmaid) and lanterns, which complemented the museum's brick walls, creating an elegant but relaxed setting.  Bistro lights from Boston Lighting made the space even more intimate and whimsical. Throughout the reception they adjusted the lighting to fit with the mood of the evening.
