Happy Trails Catering was absolutely wonderful when my sister had her wedding! Their menu is very "American" which was perfect for our family. They had so many yummy things to choose from. For hors d'Ouevres, we had the fruit baskets, "Artichoke parmesean puffs", "Brie en croute", and "Phyllo Triangles". We asked specifically for the puffs to be made slightly crispier, and each and every one was, so we were pretty shocked out how well they followed instructions. (Keep in mind this was about a 150+ wedding....yeah) We had their greek salad as the main salad, but they forgot to have blue cheese dressing along with the balsamic + italian vinegarette, and ranch, so that is why they recieve a 4 for responsivness. This wouldn't be such a big deal if it wasn't the groom's favorite dressing..Anyways, they were very prompt, coming 30 minutes before call-time just to be safe...I guess march isn't a big wedding season? Last but not least...the CAKE. The cake, baby blue with white decor, 5 layers...very beautiful, delicious, fresh...done exactly right. Needless to say this place was great, and I will definitely (and my sister im sure) be using them again! Maybe even my wedding...whenever that is ;)
This place is on Fair Oaks Avenue and most people have driven by but haven't realized how beautiful the location is. The setting is a garden with one large oak tree (?) as the focal point. The food was delicious and beautifully arranged. My only complaint would be that there are only two small bathrooms and we had about 150 wedding guests so there were long lines to use the facilities. The owner will typically talk to the wedding party about the expectations and may try to sway you in one direction but we held our ground and it all worked out perfectly.
