Three times a year Saguaro Buttes & River’s Edge Catering host a “Taste Testing” to allow couples the opportunity to sample various food selections from River’s Edge Catering menu, and make selections for their upcoming wedding.
It is a lot of fun for couples and allows them an opportunity to see the property at sunset and night time, and also meet other couples who are getting married in the near future. The reception room is elegantly set up to provide a nice evening out for couples as a part of their wedding package and for a minimal charge for additional guests. November 10, 2010 was our latest “Taste Testing” which included various styles of Chicken, Beef, Pork, Brisket with a number of different sauces, along with different styles of potatoes, pasta, vegetables, etc.
The catering staff serves Butler passed hors d’oeuvres and various cheese/vegetable plates are also displayed. The owner of River’s Edge Catering, Jason Hartenbach, is available to answer any questions, and to explain any and all options available. Also, at these events are various representatives from the baker “Sweet Creations” who brings cupcakes for all the guests, as well as a candy station, and our Linen company, “Celebrations by Silvia” who showcases various linens, to also answer any questions.
Our in-house DJ, Rashid, is also present to play music during the event, take requests and answer any questions you may have about music. Saguaro Buttes Staff and Wedding Coordinators are there to fill in any other details that need to be addressed. This event is not just a nice date night for the couple but also gives you a feel for what the wedding night will look like. Couples will receive a personal invitation to the tasting that is closest to their event.
