The Perfect Wedding Meal
Hello Smooch Readers,
“I cannot say enough about the food. Everything was beyond delicious!”
Sarah, Abernethy Bride
our food philosophy
Chefs Robert Stuart & Barry Losch
If you’ve enjoyed a meal at Abernethy Center in the last fifteen years, it was almost certainly prepared by one of these guys, our Chef’s Robert and Barry. The chefs have been with us from the start and are two of the kindest, most dedicated people around. Food is their love language, and every meal is prepared with heart. That and fresh, local ingredients combined in innovative and visually pleasing ways.
The chefs know that most newlyweds won’t eat much at the reception, so they always create a to-go bag for the couple with a sampling of everything served at the wedding and a bottle of bubbly to enjoy later.
“We are IN LOVE with The Abernethy chefs!!! They worked with us to create food that was special to us, unique to our wedding, and absolutely delicious. I cannot begin to tell you the number of compliments we received on our dinner.”
Hayley, Abernethy Bride
Menu Tastings & Catering Packages
Abernethy Center is committed to providing exceptional Northwest cuisine for your big day. Our chefs have a passion for amazing flavor and beautiful presentation. They know your wedding meal is a one-shot deal. There’s no redo. It has to be perfect! Our mission is you love what you serve, and your guests rave about the food. To help select your ideal menu, couples are invited a Chef’s Preview, where you’ll try a sampling of our most popular dishes. The Chef’s Preview is held twice a year, free to our couples, and the ultimate to-be-wed date night! We pair the menu tasting with a mini bridal show in Abernethy Chapel sponsored by our Preferred Vendors, over fifty exceptional local wedding professionals from bakers to photographers, and everything in between. They hand out samples, host giveaways, and offer special discounts just for Abernethy couples. It’s a magical night to connect with other couples, find your perfect vendor team, and, of course, enjoy a delicious meal with us!
