French Themed Wedding in Louisville, KY

Champagne Celebrations were in order for this French Inspired Wedding!

When our Bride, Emily approached the Ice House, she immediately challenged our culinary and design team at Crushed Ice Catering in Louisville. She wanted a French American Wedding to take place in Louisville, all the while planning from New York City.  Our team rose to the occasion – and delivered Emily and Loic’s dream wedding.

Emily was kind enough to share her experience and amazing photographs from her special day. Check it out:

“Take Pinterest with a grain of salt. While it was such a useful tool for certain things, I also found myself loving ideas that would never go with the style of my wedding, and being disappointed in other ideas that were too expensive to put together. Pick a style and a vibe for your wedding and go with it. Your intuition and decisions will lead to a beautiful event that is exquisitely you.”

Crushed Ice Catering: Give our readers a personal insight on what it was like to work with our team members at the Ice House and Crushed Ice Catering:

“The Ice House had a tall order to help create our wants for our French American wedding from all the way in New York City and they were the incredibly helpful every step of the way. From the first meeting we knew the Ice House was where we wanted to have our event as they assured us they would work with us to make our evening as personal to us as possible. Erica and Lindsay both did an incredible job of helping me create my dream space for the evening and keeping me in a timeline that left me unstressed. They paid as much detail to the small aspects of our wedding as I did, helping me with linens, arranging a Skype session for our tasting, and in general just taking extra care that we didn’t feel out of touch with how things were going even from so far away. Lindsay and the Chef with Crushed Ice Catering were phenomenal and pulled off a full French dinner and appropriate wine pairings that were not only complimented by our French guests, but they also worked with us to ensure we got exactly what we asked for without breaking our budget. Many of our guests commented it was the best meal they’d ever had at a wedding. Thanks to Madeline and Lindsay, day of the wedding I walked into a event space that looked beautiful, was decorated exactly how I imagined, and I truly felt like a guest at my wedding rather than a bride having to call the shots. I am forever grateful to these women for such a fantastic wedding day experience and I highly recommend both the Ice House and Crushed Ice Catering if you want a wedding that you, or anyone else, will never forget.”

Crushed Ice Catering’s Executive Chef created a fabulous menu for the Bride, Groom and all of their International Guests.
