If you’re not hungry now, you will be by the end of this blog post!
Emerald Stone Photography had the incredible opportunity to team up with Mulberry Arts Studio and Sri, owner of Upohar, LLC and Upohar’s Global Flavors Catering division in Lancaster, PA to design one gorgeous (and delicious!) styled shoot.
Many Emerald Stone Photography couples tell us they really want to invest in high quality, unique food for their wedding reception. They don’t want their guests to go home hungry. But the French toast sticks, donut walls, and ice cream bars are overdone. They want something delicious and memorable.
There is no way your guests will go home hungry when you work with Sri and her team.
Upohar, which is Bengali for “gift,” specializes in authentic, global cuisine from cultures all around the world. They have everything from Thai Chicken Satay appetizers to Moroccan Chicken Tangine entrees to American Soul Food with Barbecue Chicken and Mac and Cheese… Global Flavors Catering has something for everyone.
The menu Global Flavors Catering prepared for our shoot was:
- Syrian baked chicken with bell peppers, potatoes, and aromatic spices; Rice pilaf; Syrian salad with tomatoes, cucumber and carrots.
- Middle Eastern Mezze- Iraqi Hummus, Syrian Falafel with Tahini Sauce, Crudités, Za’atar-Topped Flatbread, Olives
- Puerto Rican appetizers (served on 3 paddles):
- Corullitos (corn fritters) with Mayu-Ketchu Dip
- Sweet Plantains topped with Roast Pork, Pickled Onion and Cilantro
- Tostones (twice-fried green plantains) topped with Guacamole, Pickled Onion, and Cilantro
We were able to capture these scrumptious photos at the gorgeous Mulberry Art Studios in downtown Lancaster. This amazing venue is an art studio downstairs and an event space upstairs with a breathtaking rooftop view of the city.
This venue was one a factory and has gorgeous high ceilings, original wooden floors, exposed brick, and a vintage elevator; all giving a unique, industrial and authentic atmosphere to this wonderful venue.
We hope some of our favorite shots from this styled shoot make you hungry and ready to have a party! If you are in need of a caterer with a global twist on meal choices or a fun venue with a modern, industrial vibe, you definitely need to check out Global Flavors Catering and Mulberry Art Studios!
