Late Summer Wedding at Patapsco Female Institute

Catering by Seasons had the pleasure to execute Ian and Matthew’s beautiful and elegant wedding celebration in September at the Patapsco Female Institute in Ellicot City, Maryland.

This fantastic venue is just a short ride from Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C., but it is nestled in a quite woody area with old-world charm. The remaining shell of the historic manor is a rustic and elegant backdrop for weddings.

The centerpieces were stunning – with freshly cut hydrangeas, wild flowers, lavender and herbs. Each of the tables were labeled with a different herb – from rosemary to sage and basil to bay laurel.

The first course, a plated caprese salad with a unique basil sorbet, was made with fresh tomatoes and basil from our urban garden. Chef Kyle Vermeulen’s basil sorbet was an absolute hit among the guests!

Reviews

It was a pleasure to work with Alberto Trevizo and Catering by Seasons. Alberto was knowledgeable and pleasant to work with, and was very accommodating when we had to postpone our wedding one year.

Catering by Seasons is great! We booked them for our wedding. Stephanie was so great with working with us on our desired budget.

Alberto is the best catering manager ever!! Everything about working with Catering by Season, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!
