Making Memories with the Maddox’s

Kiley, the second oldest of the four Maddox girls, married Lee Garver at the Maddox’s childhood home. Like her two sisters before her, Kiley turned to Kathy G & Company to help with her catering needs! Kiley was the third Maddox sister in the last two years to get married! She was preceded by her sisters Davis Ann and Mary Lynn. Though all three of these beautiful sisters used, Kathy G & Company, each of their reception menus were uniquely created for each sister’s wants and needs. Kiley put a unique 1920s inspired spin on her wedding. The beautiful bride and her bridesmaids all wore intricately beaded gowns with beautiful drapery. Kiley’s poppy red lips and diamond studded headpiece really pulled the fabulous Gatsby-like wedding day look together. The menu chosen for Kiley and Lee’s special day was elegant and awe-inspiring, just like their wedding. The couple had three amazing stations: Polenta Parmigiana, Tuscan and the main buffet. “The food was fabulous. Our guests talked about how good the food was at each wedding. It was presented beautifully,” said Cindy Maddox, mother of the bride. “After two weddings, we were a little bit at a loss, and she [Natalie; Coordinator for Kathy G & Co] helped us to come up with yet another menu. Every wedding was different, every menu was different, and all were excellent.” The Polenta Parmigiana station had creamy Parmigian Polenta topped with Sautéed Mushrooms and Red Wine Sauce. The station was complete with a chef to sauté the Wild Mushroom with Shallots, Garlic Fresh Herbs Sweet Butter and Marsala Wine on site. The Tuscan Table, located in the family room, served Artichoke and Feta Salad, Assorted Italian Cheeses, Goat Cheese Logs, Grilled Vegitable Crudites with Balsamic Drizzle and Lamb Chop “Lollipops” with Mint Aioli. Fresh Grapes and Strawberries cascaded the table. The main food buffet, placed on the dining room table, consisted of Grilled Chicken Rollups with Avocado, Smoked Gouda and Chipotle Mayo; Beef Tenderloin Kabobs with Red Bell Peppers and Purple Onions with Taziki Sauce, Shrimp Cakes with Creole Aioli; Mini BLT’s with Roma Tomato, Arugula and Apple Smoked Bacon topped with Remoulade; Vidalia Onion and Gruyere Tartlets and Fried Green Tomatoes with Feta, Remoulade and Parsley Flakes. Champagne was served in elegant flutes and passed to guests as they arrived. A black and white checked dance floor, the band and guest tables were placed in the large back yard to create the reception venue.  Strings of lights sparkled as they lit the back yard in soft light. The relaxed yet beautiful backyard created a fun scene for guests to celebrate Kiley and Lee. Kiley and Lee, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! “…And when its time for the fourth daughter to get married (which I hope is a long time from now), my first call will be to Natalie.” Florist: Atalla Florist Rentals: Special Events Tents Cake: Diane Stewart Photographer: W&E Photographie  ...

Kathy G’s Red Carpet Celebrity Roast

In honor of the fabulous Kathy G’s birthday, a red carpet celebrity roast was thrown! From the delectable décor to the glitzy sparkles that filled the room, the evening was a star-studded event. There were even some celebrities among the guests – Marilyn Monroe, The Blue’s Brothers and James Bond all made appearances at the event. The evening was filled with glamour and full of surprises to entertain the guests. The most glamorous of all, was Ms. Kathy G herself! Kathy was dressed from head to toe in fun fuchsia and sparkles. Her sassy skirt and diamond studded heels and accessories gave the outfit the perfect pizzazz for a birthday girl! The scene was set for a magical night of fabulous fun. WorkPlay Sound Stage was dressed in fuchsia, black and silver. A long red carpet, provided by Event Rentals Unlimited (ERU), ran through the room, bringing in a celebrity feel. A.G. Lighting provided fuchsia lighting, a star-lit pattern on the dance floor and a follow spotlight for all of the evening’s entertainment. The fully silver sequined and fuchsia rosette tablecloths from Nuage sat atop alternating rectangle high-boy and circular tables from Event Rentals Unlimited. ERU also provided beautiful chaivari bar stools and Lucite ghost chairs for the tables, the fuchsia lit truss bars and the fuchsia lit floating tables. The AV equipment, microphone, DJ capabilities and Photobooth were all compliments of the fabulous JAMM Entertainment. A silver glitter chandelier ice sculpture, by Chef David Bromley, adorned one of the truss bars. The design and floral was done by non-other than, KG Designs. Kathy G & Company catered the event with a fabulous menu that combined Kathy’s Lebanese culture, Asian culture and some famous Kathy G & Company favorites.  The mini meal station had a selection of Crawfish & Shrimp Cakes, Grilled Ahi Tuna Kabobs and Sushi. The main display was a Tuscan Table that featured Marinated Kalamata Olives, Artichoke and Feta Salad, a Cheese Display with a selection of toppings, Israeli Cous Cous Salad, Turkey Pitas, Heirloom Tomato Summer Salad and a selection of Crostini, Grilled Bruschetta, Pita Chips and Homemade Parmesan Chips with Mediterranean toppings that included Tapenade, Mission Fig Puree with Herbed Goat Cheese, Hummus and more. The Lebanese table contained Rolled Grape Leaves, Lebanese Meat Pies, Baked Kibbe, Lamb Meatballs, Grilled Chicken and Conech Sausage Kabobs and Tabooli-Parsley Salad on Endive Leaves. Some of the delectable foods were presented on Kathy G & Company’s famous “floating table.” The tabletop was made from a clear piece of Lucite that was supported by fuchsia pedestals. The “floating table” was the focal point of the room and was adorned with fabulous representations of the party – good food, fun atmosphere and lots of fuchsia and glitz. A specialty cocktail, named after the guest of honor, was served. The “G-tini,” St. Germain, Grey Goose and splash of club soda, was adorned with a fuchsia glow stick. After greeting her guests as they arrived, Kathy G made her grand entrance. A red Harley Davidson motorcycle sped down the red carpet with Kathy riding side saddle on the back. The motorcycle drove her right to the stage where her queen-like roast chair, from Classic Events, was waiting. The crowd cheered as the roast began. Friends from childhood and beyond, KG team members and her kids were among the roasters. Lots of laughs and sweet memories were shared. Following the roast, Chris and Emily Bailey, of Bailey Dance Studio, performed a routine to “Time of My Life.” The couple, who are national dance competitors, were exceptional. With flawless dips and lifts, the...
